    Pros

    This is the rating for the Esprit store in NYC (not sure if it's still there anymore). Work environment was pleasant and professional compared to other retail experiences. Pay was also a little above average in comparison to other sales associate positions at this time. Managers were professional and pleasant to work with. Hours were fair.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure to help everyone in the store even when they do not want help.
    Store can get very messy at times and understaffed on certain days.
    Commission bonuses- could be bad or good.

    Advice to Management

    Trust that your employees have already asked customers if they need help when they say they did, not all customers need help, some just want to be left alone.

  9. A lot of goals and very stressful.
