Not respecting your employees and trying to trick your customers is not a recipe for success.

Pros

The store has sales all the time. The only upside of working here is you will know which the best ones are, and will be able to time your purchases. Is that worth the low pay and work environment? No.

Cons

It is made clear to you early on that there are many potential employees out there, and you are worth little as an individual. There is no attempt to even hide this lack of respect. While all businesses need to make sure they are making a profit, there is a proper way to do it. Jos.A.Bank's method is to lie to its customers and trick them into doing paying for things they shouldn't have to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior Management needs to reestablish control over store managers and regional managers. They need training in ethics in general, and maybe a seminar or two on how to respectfully deal with your employees would be nice as well.

    Good if you like wearing overpriced suits to work and getting paid minimum wage.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Commission during significant sales that occur roughly twice a year are a good time for commission as a sales person.

    Cons

    Sales executives are encouraged to sell sell sell as expected in any retail job. Although the commission is not worth the effort required to sell the necessary amount to make anything significant. Also, when making thousand dollar sales and averaging 50 thousand plus in annual sales receiving little to no commission, it is easy to become disillusioned. Look elsewhere for retail jobs.

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your colleagues are some really good people.

    Cons

    Work hard all year and they find reasons not to pay you your bonuses. They have some impossible initiatives in place that ensures you don't get your bonus. Then they say it's you're fault. Overall, the heads of the company are clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with why your company is a success right now. It's called your people. Otherwise you will continue to lose great employees and in the future fail.
