Advice to ManagementAdvice

Since firing George Zimmer there's a fear among employees that the company will lose it's way, and it's already becoming apparent. Don't use your Wardrobe Consultants as cheap labor during prime rental seasons, and unless you want to drive every worthwhile team member away DO NOT install people-counters on the doors to track conversion rates. When that happens, might as well sell to Joe Banks.

    Managers are commissioned, in many cases young and immature. No drug testing, no background checks.

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time

    Pros

    Regional management more compassionate, essentially they deal with HR issues. Visual merchandisers very helpful. All stores have tailor shops.

    Cons

    It gets busy and with poor scheduling, the old timers stay to help. Commissioned salespeople make $5.00 per hour + commission, so if it is not busy they goof off. Non commissioned customer service associates paid a bit above minimum wage, expected to jump, pronto. Some customer service associates (males) can play with the managers and salespeople. Vapor cigarettes are real popular right now, sometimes in the store. Smart phones welcome, giant soft drinks visible to customers always in vogue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your hourly commissioned salespeople the minimum wage. Pay your customer service associates a living wage. Bring back a profit sharing program. The million dollars that used to go to 1000 employees doesn't go as far with 10,000 employees. Stop paying the board of directors with thousands of dollars in stock. Some key employees got big blocks of stock after the Joseph Abboud aquisistion, for doing their job. Stop increasing the price on merchandise at every turn and start focusing on quality and fit of merchandise.
