    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.

  2.  

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

    Pros

    Good store management, employees work very hard, but for little pay.

    Cons

    Pay structure is terrible! Upper Management expects too much for too little pay. High turnover due to low pay. Do NOT work here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people for their hard work and loyalty to the Company. Don't make Managements work so many hours. Come up with a better software system for POS and tuxedo - it is cheap and it shows!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
