Pros

The most fun I've ever had working. I love the work, I love building outfits for people, and I love working with clothes all day. The people that work there are amazing and the dress code is great :)

Cons

Working on commission can be unstable income. It's great pay at times then pretty low at other times. Holiday and back to school are great but January through March are rough.

    Senior management should not be under the age of 35. Must have comprehensive management training.

    Pros

    Great discount and workers compensation package. Benefits can be shared with family and spouse. The atmosphere is friendly to work in and I enjoyed myself working with people there.

    Cons

    The main thing that bugged me about working here is that you do not make the income they say. I was working a job making 11.50 an hour. When I was being interviewed here, the Manager said that I can easily make 12/hr which is a hourly pay plus commission. The only thing they failed to mention is you need to, on AVERAGE, sell over $1600 in product every 8 hour shift you work. Retails have their slow days in the weekdays so you know you are not making those numbers. Come my first paycheck, after having some great sale dates where I sold more then $2000 in product and averaging highest with my co-workers, my pay was just 7 cents above mininum wage. I left because they lied about the income I would make... You MUST average 1600 or higher on an 8 hour shift to break double digits, just work the math out for yourself! Also remember, you will be working on some hours where you are strictly helping doing inventory and they might pull you back off the floor too. So you will not always be on the sale floor. About 1/3 of your time could be spent in the back or on off hours and these negatively impact your sales as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys treated me well and you taught a lot of good things about the retail business but even though you put me in the Assistant Manager in Training program, its a shame you had to hide the pay structure from me and not tell me upfront.
