I worked at Torrid

Pros

- Customer base is (mostly) great

- Cute clothes

- You get to dress in your own parameters, as long as they are on par with company standards/expectations

- Tattoos and piercings are fine

- Some really great people in corporate

Cons

- Inadequate communication between all levels

- Company often cannot make up their minds when it comes to merchandising

- A former policy of employees and customers getting the same respectful treatment has vanished

- Store policies broken often

- Overall lack of competence in upper management, with corporate turnover happening more often than it should

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your abilities to effectively manage your company are lacking. There is no respect in the hierarchy, and it has shown from day one of Torrid's inception. As someone who witnessed the company's start-up and also the company's workings in today's world, I truly believe practices are seriously flawed.

    Pros

    Good discount on clothing, Had (for the most part) a good customer base with some of them awesome people!, It's really great to help people find self confidence in themselves through shopping.

    Cons

    There was no room to move up in the company, and the FEW chances there were, they hired outside the company instead of trying to promote from within. They give people who break the rules and disrespect co-workers/customers FAR too many chances. The management outside of the store (DM, RM) definitely plays favorites. Way too much turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to select better when hiring people to run the store. When I worked there, the most successful people (or most liked by RM and DM) running the store were people that were lazy and pushed their work off onto others, when good work was done by someone, they took the credit for it, did not help customers and let people steal. If that's the kind of person you are, then you will fit right in!!!

    I have been working at Torrid

    Pros

    Employee Discount, Great co-workers, Management very understanding, Work with your schedule as best as possible, Always get feedback on the job you do

    Cons

    Salary, Employee practices need to be reevaluated, Need to update some of the store practices as well, contests need reevaluated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the employee practices between the management and the associates need to be reevaluated especially the ones containing to outside work mingling, its not right that coworkers can't be friends outside of work. Also some of the contests they hold should be geared more towards the associates and not the management.
