Pros

Very Accommodating manager, tries to be helpful to everyone. As long as you know what you're doing and don't slack off it's a great environment

Cons

Did not experience any cons. Maybe the leaving early policy but that is not too big of a deal

Advice to ManagementAdvice

think about snow storm policy, that's all great time otherwise

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is the freedom it gives it's sales associates. It's not hard to sell the clothe if you know the product info and the current promotions. The benefits are great if you work in a union store but I can't speak on the non union stores. I sell around 8k a week in NY and have made many connections with all types of clients. You automatically get 3% of anything you sell then 4-7% after you hit certain benchmarks and they are very obtainable. They run contests all the time so about once every 2 months you can get up to $200 visa gift cards for pushing certain products. All in all an excellent place to learn how to sell and not just give customers what they want.

    Cons

    When there is no advertising business is VERY slow. Also since they have a customer satisfaction guarantee you'll find yourself dealing with headache after headache because some old man with a hunchback doesn't like how his suit fits after alterations. Or people trying to return/replace clothing that they obviously have had for years. Also tuxedo rentals are probably the worst experience you will have while working there. Bridezillas will blame the sales person for things that we cannot control and even complain to corporate. Never promise anything while doing tuxedo rentals and always suggest buying a suit or tux instead of renting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time educating staff on the product itself. Do away with the tuxedo rental side of the business there's way to many problems with it. Also talk to the little people, motivated employees are more useful.
