    Pros

    Co workers are great and we share fashion ideas with each other and play off each other's strengths.

    Cons

    Brought in inexperienced manager 6 months ago and DM NOW says she will start training her. We were told by same DM that the company DOES NOT "Train to the job".Thank God the customers can't see our back room and forgive our often empty walls. Do a lot of send sales for things lost in back room

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job hiring. Promote good people from within. They understand their own customers better than an outsider.

    Pros

    The overall culture of the company is very friendly and supportive. Everyone from senior management to assistants are always willing to take the extra time to help you or to explain something to you. The company really prides itself on its rich heritage, and it is meaningful to be a part of such a strong and iconic brand.

    Cons

    Trying to change the perception that only your grandmother shops there!
