I have been working at JoS. A. Bank

Pros

Completely performanced based. No limit on commisions. Good benefits package. Creative ways to reduce insurance premiums. HR department very responsive to the needs of the employee.

Cons

Commision rates haven't been adjusted since before jos.a. bank became a promotional retailer so you have to seel more to make the same as what youi sold the year before. Harsh views on customer complaints. they only listen to the customer's side, the employees side doesn't matter. Past performance not taken into account on anything. very poor training program. upper management not very responsive to store issues (divisional vice president and above)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

PAY MORE! One should be able to work and have a life outside of it. at jos.a.bank as a manager that is not possible. While only 47 hours are the minimunm requirement, it usually requires more like 55-65 to complete the MASSIVE ammounts of work and checking that this job requires. Just because the company wills something to be done, doesn't make it possible to do. workload should be able to be accomplished in the time required as a minimum expectation.
If a company treats their employees well, the employee will take care of the company. If the employee has to worry about how to make ends meet even in the busy times, then they will take care of themselves over the companies intrests. EVERYONE feels overworked and underappreciated in this company.

    Pros

    This is a job secure company. The work/life balance is acceptable.

    Cons

    The pay is horrid, the work hours change all the time and without warning. It is very hard to grow within the company. If you don't mind staying at the bottom or never advancing with little pay, then your job is secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over completely. They are too focused on "Platinum Service" towards their customers that they neglect their employees.

    Absolutely no regard for the employees who drive the business. Excessive customer coplaints due to shoddy alterations. Major corporate waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your ivory towers and on the selling floor to know how hard employees work. Stop deceptive sales.
