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

Pros

At Jos. A. Bank you are really empowered to run your own business and have a lot of control within your four walls.

Cons

Aggressive marketing techniques are not profit friendly and I believe that to some people it makes th product less desirable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seems that the company is ever evolving to meet the needs of a bad economic climate. There's a fine line between confirming to industry needs and "grabbing at straws"

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

    Pros

    Some people were okay. My manager was at least accommodating with schedules and was generally friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is awful - they paid hourly or commission whichever is higher - but the commission structure was setup to basically be hourly rate. No other real benefits to speak of - the employee discount was higher than store sale prices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the constant sale model. Be honest with customers and treat employees better.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Simple opening and closing procedures, good benefits for full-time employees, enough hours to go around for part-time employees

    Cons

    Boring work, difficult customers, minimal training provided by Store Manager, archaic technology, poor pay with no opportunity for raises, pressure to make sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your POS systems and other store procedures. Bring back the assistant manager position so not all of the dirty work is dumped onto key holders by the store manager
