If you're going to work fashion retail, its among the best

Department Manager (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsDecent pay, great social environment, competitive structure, good product, support, can be a lot of fun. Takes time to coach and train its employees for the most part. Promotes from within, no education required. Decent benefits, 401K plan, profit sharing, and stock purchase plan. Ability to transfer and do other types of jobs within the company.

ConsRetail hours, pressure, lots of addition expectations that don't necessarily produce results. Company doesn't try to hide its focus to generate value for its stockholders as well as it used to, taking away focus on the employee... Company definitely has a focus towards promoting "cheerleader," kool aid drinking employees more than qualified management candidates. Meetings required dancing, cheerleading and other things grown men do not enjoy. Felt like a high school prep rally.
Department managers work long hours, and do not earn overtime. Pay doesn't match the commitment required or the stress level. A lot of things relating to gauged success are outside of ones control.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay closer attention to management team. Some of the "teachers" favorites were unethical and unprofessional. They would portray themselves in false light and brown nose.
Stop the culture of cheerleading and treating adults like children and bringing high level company ideas to the masses. It just clouds their minds and confuses sales people. So many different directions they pull employees that it keeps them from knowing what matters most.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
