Pros

-I love my team, and our district manager/regional manager/loss prevention manager are all available anytime you need them and respond to questions as soon as they can.
-There's always chances for advancement in this company (once you've hit full time)

Cons

-I wish that the mangers bonused off of sales goals met like many other companies do
-I wish that fragrances were commission based, or that we recieved $1-2 per fragrance sold, I think it would motivate the associates a little bit more if they got something out of selling them

    Pros

    my crew was awesome and a few of my DM's were awesome. my store made money after I inherited it from someone else. I really loved working there and the group I hired and trained.

    Cons

    Problem in this district is no good DM after the first one left. Then you get a regional with no personality and very rude. She always wanted to make herself look good instead of giving credit where it was due. No respect for some managers in the distrct. A lot of favoritism in this district. When you needed help or hours you didn't get them unless you were on the regionals good side. T

    Advice to Management

    If you want to work a lot and I mean a lot of hours with no help....work at Rue 21. Nobody will help you with anything, meaning other managers, Management doesn't get paid enough for the amount of hours and hard work they put in. Really bad management program.

    This company is unappreciative and going down the drain!

    Pros

    No dress code and that's about it.

    Cons

    The DM's are unprofessional and unorganized.
    They have a high turn-over rate.
    Low Pay
    Their unappreciative of their employees.
    When the stores that are in bad (shady) locations have high shrink numbers they blame the employees instead of customers.
    Once a store manager resigns, they get desperate and are willing to hire ghetto replacements.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative.
