Great company to work for until they decided the stock holders were more important than the employees.

I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Nice stores to work in, some of the people you work with and some of the customers are great.

Cons

It seems if you're dishonest, unethical or immune to Gestapo tactics you will succeed with this company. If you aren't, then be prepared to have your spirit squashed or become someone you don't like or recognize. The pay for management is ok if you don't average it out by hours worked, just don't expect to get a yearly bonus because they have that all figured in their favor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to get back to basics and start treating your people with the respect they deserve and the rewards that should accompany their hard work. You ruined the company with your never ending sales yet expect your employees to meet your already unrealistic goals. Belittling and threatening people does not garner loyalty or the strong results you are looking for.

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

    Pros

    There is some quality people who work at the store level. Decent discounts for merchandise, flexible schedules - most of the time.

    Men's Warehouse recently acquired JAB, maybe somebody can fix this mess?!

    Cons

    The pay structure is insulting. No raises have even given in almost 4 years. It's galling when you consider what the previous CEO was making every year. RSD's can be bullies and use foul language whenever the mood strikes. Daily memos from RSDS are condescending at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason why the jig is up and this company is now # 4 on the "Top 10 Worst Companies To Work For" - IT IS!

    Stop caring about how full your wallet is and stop with the constant greed. We are people who work for you,; we are not numbers or livestock.
