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

Pros

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

Cons

Time 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 ManagementAdvice

Deal 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.

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Jos. A Bank has a great product line.

    Cons

    They grossly under pay their hourly employees. I have been told by manager(s) that the way to make your commission is to work off the clock. My schedule is constantly being changed. There is to much turn over. In one year, in my store the whole staff has turned over accept for myself and the one of the tailors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay would allow you to recruit and keep better employees
