I have been working at JoS. A. Bank part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Beats staying home, but not by much.

Cons

Having worked for the company full and part time for a long time, I have known there WAS no better mens' clothing outfit to represent. We looked forward to coming to the store almost every day because the management appreciated your efforts. Sadly, that is not the case now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pne calls ? That's a joke. Does upper management really think those daily reported calls are actually made ? If you are busy doing stock, code 5s, cleaning the store, taking care of customers, etc. they need to get a life. Opening at 8AM and closing at 10 or 11PM ? Get real.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in the people at the ground that drive the business they are the face of Jos. A. Bank to the customer and too many faces keep changing due to poor pay

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