Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Marlton, NJ

I worked at J. Jill Group

Pros

At the time, fabulous compensation. Good bonus package and constant morale boosting by upper management.

Beautiful, unique clothing that was completely different.

Associates as models. In the beginning, no mannequins were used in the stores so the associates could be living models, in all sizes.

Beautiful aesthetic. The stores were gorgeous to work in.

Cons

Clueless DMs that allowed managers to get away with murder.

A sense of disorder about operations.

In the beginning, mandatory JJill dress code.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication in upper management. Hire more professional DMs. Implement consistent direction for each store, streamline operations.

    I worked at J. Jill Group

    Pros

    Discount if you like the clothes.

    Cons

    You have to sell credit cards that are now 30% interest.
    You have to get customers e-mail and address and phone numbers.
    You are placed on call in. If they need you you work if not you don't.
    You get sent home early if they don't need you.
    No benifits for part-time work.
    District Managers are unsocial and could careless about the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are going to loose some great employees if you don't treat your employees with a little respect.

    I have been working at J. Jill Group

    Pros

    Discount on clothing is pretty good

    Cons

    Can be very boring when not enough customers. Have to do work like cleaning the bathroom, and washing windows. No discount on sale items and at times customers fare better with there coupons and promos than we do as employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employee discount on sale items, we would buy more, hence more money for you.

    No opinion of CEO
