Miserable

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Pros-Given free wardrobe and very generous discount
-Requesting/getting time off

Cons-Extremely poor treatment of employees, especially by senior management
-Regional managers do not check in with the store managers enough, so Store manager's behavior goes unchecked
-Lack of training and/or investment in employees-rather than trying to encourage, educate, and motivate, my manager constantly made me feel stupid, inadequate, and embarrassed me in front of other employees
-Very selective in enforcing rules-not everyone is treated equally
-Inability to trust anyone/ feeling like you have to constantly watch your back

Advice to Senior ManagementAudit your Managing Directors at each store to ensure that they are actually doing their jobs well and treating employees fairly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
