Former Employee - Tailor in Chesapeake, VA

I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Loved the tailoring position and my relationship with the customers

Cons

Corporate put an extreme amount of demands on the tailors and then you have a store manager that is a control freak, there is no way but out. My blood pressure fell 30 points, 3 days after I left.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a hard look at your guidelines concerning tailoring. You are driving your tailors into the ground.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Relaxing environment, superb suits offered

    Cons

    company structure on commissions is out of date and pathetic, so many mundane tasks that are not necessary to the company, senior management lives in the dark ages dealing employees and customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up dealing with people,do not allow personal feelings to persuade your decision making process, be honest with employees at hiring/interview not disclose misinformation

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Vestal, NY

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My store was very easy going. It was fun to learn about style and help others look good for some of their most important life moments. Customers were always very nice and the managers let you be independent once you got the training wheels taken off.

    Cons

    Completely unrealistic sales goals. I was there for several months and the entire time only two employees ever hit the goals and they barely hit them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring down the sales goals and your employees will try harder. There were several employees that were disenfranchised because they thought they would never make goal.
