Pros

This company is an amazing one to work for. They offer scholarships to woman pursuing education, are flexible with schedules and the management at the WYO store is amazing.

Cons

Corporate needs to listen more to employees and they need to reevaluate what is sent to store and what is catalog only.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more full-time employment options with better pay.

    Pros

    Associates are achieving a generous discount. Salaries are also higher compared to some other retailers. I found that the company are making an effort to create a balance between work and family for their employers. The company has a big focus on creating close connections with customers. You are expected to reach out to your customers/clients on a regularly basis to invite them in to the store, and set up personal shopping appointments. This close interaction was positive for me. If you are not into creating these kind of connections, chose another retailer!

    Cons

    All the changes in the company the last couple of years. Hopefully things has finally got settled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more actively to your store management teams. They are the most aware of customers reactions and comments. I know that the higher management are trying to listen, but more could be done!

    Pros

    Oppotunities and growth with the company. Great benefits, MOST GENERAL MANAGERS are amazing, the sales associates, DM, and REGIONAL DIRECTOR were all amazing

    Cons

    Alot of sales associates were stressed about sales goals, which could lead to panic, but if you can sell, you will do fine!!! While i was there i had many mentors that were amazing, and some supervisors along the way that were great at first put then tanked. Bottom line, if your GM is in for the long haul and there to coach and assist, the work environment couldnt be better!! Like i said, rarely, that is an issue, this company has great leaders!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As long as you show up and stay out of the office and spend time in the building you will retain respect from the staff
