Pros

Great discounts. Some-what easy going environment, depending on which store you work in. Always in the know about the latest trends and fashions. Compared to other retailers, the employees that work here take their jobs seriously - it's not just a job to pass the time, this is their career, which makes for a strong work environment. The pay is very generous.

Cons

It's very difficult to change positions, especially if you want to move up. You are always replaceable, and you have to drink the kool-aid. As a company, they make sometimes make stupid business decisions. Depending on what department you work in, you need to have thick skin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your people work very hard. Reward them more often.

    Pros

    30/30 days are good for X-mas shopping and cheap Ralph Lauren towels. Christmas Book celebrations are always fun (even though you only get 15 minutes to enjoy it). Reputable company to put down on your resume to get to better paying call centers.

    Cons

    You will get hired as 35-40 flex full time. You may get scheduled only 16 hours and sent home early every day and end up with 10 hours at the end of a week. Driving to work only to get sent home 1 hour later sucks. The pay is lower than most of the call centers around NMD. They pry into your every second you want off of work. Micromanage is the key word in this place. (I've seen someone get fired for going to the bathroom "too much.") Management shows HARDCORE favoritism to the tail-wagging sheep who fall in line, even if they suck at their job and are general jerks. Best way to move up here is to suck up and be fakefriendly to someone with a mediocre amt of power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring everyone and their mom at Christmas time and instead focus on better training your existing employees and giving them more hours/overtime. More hours is the way to get happier, more competent workers. (Giving away expired samples of perfume and calenders in the middle of the year as "gifts" is NOT.)
