Current Employee - Department Manager in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Department Manager in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

1) Good discount on clothing.

Cons

1) The compensation is low compared to other clothing retailers, and getting lower. For example, a couple years ago, an Asst. Mgr. earned $15/hr.; now one earns $12/hr., and now a Dept. Mgr./Keyholder earns $11/hr.

2) Also, there aren't fair rules for advancement. For example, each District Manager often hires friends/family from outside the company to fill management openings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your top-selling employees better, or they will leave.

    Pros

    Great discount on quality merchandise. It is rewarding to sell quality and value to customers.

    Cons

    Brutal hours and difficult to get quality employees because of low income available when working for commission in low volume store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change pay structure for low column stores and forget extended hours in small markets.
