    I worked at Guess? part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say about this company

    Cons

    The pay is low...the employees are very judgement about the customers....your only working 1 or 2 days a week....you only get a 40% discount off regular priced items, so if a pair of jeans are on sale for $50 and the are regularly priced $90, your discount will be taken from the $90. They watch over the customers like hounds, thinking everybody that doesn't look a certain way is going to steal.

    Pros

    You meet friendly people and learn retail lingo.

    Cons

    You work long hours until early mornings (2am). They don't care if you're sick and have to call out. They are very catty and play favoritism yet they all talk about each other. And they only pay minimum wage and don't care about your experience

    I have been working at Guess? (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fun events like "Oscar Parties" (photo booth & cotton candy at lunch), Gourmet cafeteria, sample store on site. One hour lunch, on-site gym w/ daily classes (yoga, spinning, kick-boxing...).

    Cons

    Very strict about being on time (heard ppl have even been fired for being 5 min. late). Few holidays off. Not much room for advancement, little internal promotion. Low pay for non-upper mgmt. Seems like a good place to learn/gather experience for work in fashion, it just stagnates after awhile.

    Pros

    Small shifts, entry level experience. Great brand awareness. Only a specific type of person will fit well here.

    Drama, management changing time sheets, bullying, mafia-like behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at who you are hiring and make sure they are more than qualified not just available.

    Pros

    The medical benefits are great. You also get good basic benefits 401K, ESPP and additional restricted stocks or stock options for management.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not the best. The work culture measures a good worker based on the number of hours he/she works. In addition some of the management does not like opinions that question the way things are done.

    I worked at Guess? part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Discount on clothes. While working here, you get 40% everything in the store. On one weekend a month, that discount gets raised to 50% a month. This discount applies to any of the Guess stores. Fun work environment. Most people working there were very nice to one another. High variety of foreign clientele visit this branch, and it is interesting to interact with people of so many cultures.

    Cons

    Pretty mundane and boring work... All you do is fold clothes all day until someone asks you to look for something in the back. Lunch breaks are only 15 minutes long, every 4 hours for part- time employees. 15 minutes is hardly enough time to get food anywhere if you forget to bring your own. Employees of the higher end branches can be very snobby. Hardly got any hours working as part-time, even though I was out-selling the full-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan hours for part-time employees more efficiently.

    Pros

    Who does like fashion? And Guess is a great company to learn a lot more about trends, driving sales and customer service. Great discount.

    Cons

    Upper leaders like they like to call themselves think of themselves like aGod, so they like treating their associates with little respect ( at least in my store) there is no motivation and everyday they're are coming up with a different focus which takes away what we really need to focus which is customers and sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are what make companies, the way the feel where they work is important because good vibes make anything possible. A company shouldn't be ran by who is who's favorite but by who works and shows passion and dedication. I've worked with many great leaders but the ones I have now have just pushed me away we the disrespect and mistreatment of the store manager and one of the cos. it's sad because I thought I would be able to grow old with Guess since the company is great, the people hmmm no that much.
