Awesome. Not for me though.

Back Room Person (Former Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

I worked at Gilly Hicks part-time for less than a year

ProsMany fun people to work with. Some are not so fun. Depends on your attitude. Job can be really hard sometimes. Always pick morning shift because night shift closing is harder.

ConsHad to climb and constantly turn angles quickly. I have a messed up knee so this job wasn't for me. I worked backroom as well. There was a backroom manager which was just a student working full time. The real managers put so much pressure on her on our mistakes that she just became very angry all the time. We became angry at her, not the managers. Managers knew their psychology, gotta give them that.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot even worth mentioning.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Sales Associate

Model/Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Bloomington, MN

I have been working at Gilly Hicks part-time

ProsExtremely flexible hours. There are many career opportunities in this company whether it is a sales associate or manager in training, there's always the opportunities to move higher.

ConsIt is retail. Some days are good, some days are bad. The sales floor is dark with loud music but nothing an associate can't adjust to.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
