    Pros

    Learned how to prioritize and multi-task.

    Cons

    The pay is very low as an operations assistant. Starting pay is in between 30-40k. From my experience, I was micro-managed throughout the time I worked there. All that management cared about was reaching their target as a store versus seeing each individual succeed. I witnessed management on several occasions giving high value sales to people they prefer on the sales floor, versus spreading it out evenly amongst staff. Don't even mention family problems to them, as they aren't understanding. During super-storm sandy, various staff members had their homes tremendously damaged and management didn't allow them to stay home and work with contractors to repair their property. Instead they gave them a hard time for being absent. Staff members tend to not work together since some people can't be trusted making it difficult to be efficient. Working holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give your staff more freedom versus micro-managing them. Staff will respect you a lot more and will work harder to reaching their targets.

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst - Regional Merchandising

    Pros

    - Great work life balance (My hours were 9-6 most days + ~2 hours/ week of evening conference calls on average)
    - Employee discounts (esp. deals at the Employee store)
    - Great brand name to have on resume (cool socially too)
    - One of the friendlier working environment within retail

    Cons

    - Pay wasn't great; no performance bonus for non-managers
    - Slow career progression/ no set career path
    - NY HQ too conservative and reluctant to give autonomy to regional offices, causing a lot of delay in decisions, and also talented employees to leave due to frustration with the bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to changes and different ways of doing things in other regions would do the company a lot of good

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
