    Great atmosphere and product. Family owned. Room for growth and development for the right person. Love the loyal clientele. Lots of perks, great contests and superb discount on clothing.

    Cons

    Sometimes dealing with very grumpy customers, but where in customer service don't you get that?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Product has gotten stronger by the season, love that the buyers are coming around to the stores to meet the managers and get their input on what our customers are really looking for.

    I have been working at Jean Machine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a good structure in place but it is not overbearing. They encourage you to think outside the box and be creative in your position. It is a job where you wear many hats and you learn A LOT of new skills.

    Cons

    They are only in Ontario so I cannot transfer the the West Coast

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!
