Pros

Good opportunity if your career aspirations are in Sales / Store Management. Men's Wearhouse has an excellent trainging program and is willing to invest in its future managers. Good experience in managing people once you get to be a store manager.

Cons

Work life balance is an issue, guess its the nature of the business. Long hours and often have to work holidays. In the retail business you will often have to work long hours and even though stores are closed on some holidays, it will often prevent or make impossible to travel if you were not raised in the city you currently work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on sales and get out of rental business. Need to be more selective in store locations.

    Pros

    Good benefits and sales experience. The training that the company provides is very good. Men's Wearhouse gives you all the tools you need to succeed. Your good performance as a consultant will greatly reflect in the pay you receive. Benefits that are available to you include health, dental, vision as well as a PMDA Account which you can use towards purchases of store product. Also you receive a very nice store discount on purchases.

    Cons

    As a Wardrobe consultant your pay is based upon commission. If you do not like to wear a suit or just shirt and tie then this is not the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to their retail managements practices

    Pros

    Knowledge about the industry is top-notch, good discounts (40%) on all items in the store, remote possibility of moving upward in the organization. Training can be very comprehensive once you are promoted to a full sales position but once they're established, cross-training them to do all the jobs in the store does not exist.

    Cons

    Same compensation as someone who works fast food but more responsibility on having to sell for the organization so that the commissioned people make more money, the upline managers make more money, and the shareholders make more money. Required to work with unstable brides who want everything to be perfect for their wedding, yet aren't willing to spend money on purchasing the required clothing for the groom's party.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the people who are the true workforce of your organization with more respect and compensation in recognition of their abilities and opportunities pursuable elsewhere.
