There is resistance to change at some levels Cubicle culture Idling capacity in the IT organization Low pay relative to other large Seattle employers

    Pros

    It has a great name behind it, so once working with this company employers will flock to you.

    Cons

    Payment, payment and payment...they're cheap! people scheme off the company all day everyday so there's no way to make any real money.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down we're only selling clothes it doesn't hurt to genuinely be nice

    Pros

    Great training... if nothing else you will leave the place with great customer service skills, friendly co-workers, not a bad place to work for a recent college grad

    Cons

    20-33% discount, they used to promote from within but now hire "personal stylists" off the street...lots of hours not great pay, hypocrites...expect employees to treat customers like gold, but treat their employees like crap...anniversary sale is becoming a joke due to cheap merchandise, Sales floors are being overcrowded with employees which hurts every sales persons pay check checkbut looks

    Advice to Management

    adjust goals, hire quality people like you used to, give your managers a raise, employees that have been there for over 10 years shouldnt still be getting paid 10.85/hr at a non sell rate...speaking of which an employee that gets to work at 8 shouldnt stop getting paid at 9:20 whenwgeb===
