    Pros

    Most of the people are pretty cool to work with and the store managers are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Managers (district and regional) and corporate set unrealistic goals and I feel that some of the rules they come up with are sexist. Also there isn't much room to grow with the company, and they care more about exceeding sales than keeping their employees happy.

    Advice to Management

    Grow some and stop letting corporate run all over you.

    Pros

    Fun fast passed environment, decent pay, good discount, good benefits, good product makes it easy to bonus. Good music to listen to while working.

    Cons

    Long hours (late nights/early mornings), upper management outside of the store level don't have a clear understanding of what is happening in store (like in most retail).

    Advice to Management

    Distribute hours to stores differently spend more time in your stores understanding why each one needs to be.different and handled as such. And stop spreading distict and regional managers so thin by giving them such lager districts to oversee, its not fair to your storesz or your customers. And get the woman and payroll some help please.

    Pros

    Great clothes, Iconic brand, vacation, great discount, everyone really nice at corporate, fun manager meetings, district managers really seem to care about their people.

    Cons

    Larger stores need more payroll to operate properly, very focused on "brand image or the look of the worker" instead of the quality of the worker. This can lead to the wrong people on the team.

    Pros

    Very friendly and they take time to train you well. I've worked here for awhile so I have a lot of independence. Managers care and try their best to give you the time off you request.

    Cons

    They have a high expectation of their employees to care about the company. I have been here 2 years and have not gotten a raise. On call shifts suck or they don't schedule you enough.

    Pros

    Great first job for newcomers. Excellent training offered to new and current employees.

    Management was great at motivating sales staff. Everyone I worked with was great.

    Cons

    The location was on the Las Vegas strip so the hours were very late for a retail location. In addition, they were many drunken customers. Sometimes they were aggressive and it was uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Certain employees were favored over others regardless of their work ethic. In addition, depending on who was at the register, sometimes cashiers would give other employees' credit for sales to their friends.

    Pros

    Great discount, great product, good benefits, and cool atmosphere.

    Cons

    External theft, terrible DM who makes you feel like you are nothing but a worker bee to him, and payroll management(not enough hours given to get things done off the sales floor).

    Advice to Management

    Don't think your better just because of your rank

    Pros

    They have great pay, the employees discount is also very high compared to other retailers that I have worked for in the past.

    Cons

    They have very poor communication between the corp office and store management and even worse communication between the store managers and co and assistant managers.

    Advice to Management

    They need to realize that being friends with the employees rather than being their boss will only hurt the business make friends on your own time.
