    Flexible schedule,great staff, but you get the duties of almost every position with only the pay of a sales associate

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Willow Grove, PA

    ProsGreat teamwork skill builder, flexible schedule, friendly team, great discount

    ConsTedious routines, not enough pay for the work your doing, barely any raises, no breaks when only one associate and one manager working a shift which would happen often

    Guess was really a pleasant place to work

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Phila, PA

    ProsIt's a great company, with great benefits. Employees get 40% off merchandise and a week of paid vacation after a year of employment. This company has a good diversity of employees and managers.

    ConsThis company does not like to promote from within so there isn't a good opportunity for advancement unless you come in with prior management experience.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    great discount

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Glendale, CA

    Pros50% off new hire discount
    40% employee discount
    60% holiday, selcted items discount
    part time schedule is perfect for college students, as you may switch shifts and have coverage.
    glamorous, working with higher class people.
    you also get to connect more with the customer as a stylist versus feeling like a cashier.

    Consas with any other part time retail job at the mall, low hours. hours are based on your sales. you must be 18 years and up to be employed there, the hours range from 0 hours to 20 hours which makes it impossible to survive financially. You are also expected to wear Guess clothing but your income cant afford it. very small probability of moving within the compnay, you do get promotions but same hours and same pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoved the management, they were always encouraging and acknowledging accomplishments. They pushed creativity to assemble wardrobe and complimented your appearance. Positive attitude.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
