I have been working at JoS. A. Bank
Pros – You learn a lot about quality fabrics, and fitting, and how to be a more sophisticated dresser. All of the (Associates) are a very close family. Selling can be fun sometimes and you meet some great customers that make you feel important. Loved getting paid every friday... for a college student the pay is great, but after I thought about it, I dont get paid enough for the amount of bull i have to put up with.
Cons – I became a manager and soon realized I took the spot of two former managers who hated their job as soon as they became a manager. Same things for me. For Department managers, or keyholders they treat you like you're unimportant, while expecting you to do all the dirty work for them. Assistant store managers always have a power trip, and the store manager tries to communicate with the Associates through the Assistant manager. It's a great place to work, but its not a good career job. Stay a Sales Associate, your life will be so much easier!
Advice to Senior Management – Store, Regional, and District managers need to stop promising people promotions, people get impatient, and when they ask for their promotion or raise they will degrade your "Performance"! Even if you're the top seller. They expect way to much from us while they sit on their ass and talk on the phone or "file paperwork".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
