Pros

Good name to have on resume, actually listen to worker feedback, tries to incorporate suggests as much as possible.

Cons

Lots of upper management have been there for a long time and are afraid to take risks on fashion because "It didn't work 20 years ago". Promotion strategy is unclear, but supervisors give feedback and are willing to talk when asked.

    Not bad for retail or for a position to have in the meantime.

    Pros

    Awesome merchandise, and generous employee discount

    Cons

    Not enough training! At my first store I had a designated area that made it easier to learn about the merchandise, as it changed constantly, but for other associates that were floaters and bounced all around the store to many different departments, they often had no clue what they were selling, which I found counterproductive. At the second location i worked at, the store was very disorganized, and it sometimes made the work not enjoyable and tedious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training to sales associates, so they know what they're doing! Have a streamline process in which the store operates. The second location I worked at was disorganized, making it difficult for me to help customers at times.

    Pros

    good associates at store. good family/work balance

    Cons

    District team is hard to work with. District has a team of 10 members and only hae 10 stores they work with. They are in the store constantly. find yourself managing them more than the store. they also act as the RVP's eyes and ears reporting eVERYTHING back to her.
