    Pros

    Great policies, cares about their employees, great views on customer experience

    Cons

    Low volume stores don't get enough product, sometimes the hours are hard to run the store effectively

    Advice to Management

    Try and find better ways to get best selling products to all stores. Try to find a way to raise the base hours for smaller stores to give us more to work with.

    Pros

    The corporate office is beautuful, pay is high (especially for a fashion company), amazing cafe.Great training and company discount.

    Cons

    Upward mobility for people in our department seemed difficult, even for those qualified with fashion degrees. Our department was understaffed and on busy days it could be quite stressful, especially when angry customers calledi in.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly I felt that management treated us really fairly and did their best to create a fair place to work. I would say on busy days maybe encourage employees to get up and walk away, even if it's 2 or 3 minutes, just to straighten their legs once an hour or so.
