    I have been working at Guess?

    Pros

    Client was more upbeat outgoing. Was lucky to have a great manager, so learned a lot from her.

    Cons

    Upper management was horrible. No appreciation, no consideration. Pay is minimum. Other employees would not show up, therefore you would not be allowed to leave. There were times I started at 9am and left at 7 pm because nobody showed up at 4pm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to sales associates
