It's Retail

Sales Executive (Former Employee)
Reading, PA

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

ProsIf you like retail, want building a customer base and push hard for sales you can have a strong future at Jos. A. Bank.

ConsTime off translates to lost sales. Expect long days and a quite irregular schedule. Work/Life balance is skewed towards work. Typical with most retailers is the press for customers personal information. Name. Address, phone number, e-mail, all used to JAB's advantage - especially "courtesy" phone calls. Also have to mention a laborious tuxedo rental program that most Sales Executives fail to fully understand leaving to many rental customers dealiing with frustration.

Advice to Senior ManagementDeal with work/life balance. Teach Sr. Management to respect the store associates - give them true support in developing sales and maintaining an A+ customer experience. Beat down and beat up isn't right approach when sales are declining - especially in difficult economic times.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Demanding, long hours, rigid senior management, prices of clothing too high to sell; unless there is a huge sale.

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


Pros: Good store management, employees work very hard, but for little… Cons: Pay structure is terrible! Upper Management expects too much for too little… Advice to Senior Management: Pay your people for their hard work and loyalty to the Company. Don't make Managements work so many… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
