    In my opinion the biggest challenges are in meeting the needs of the clients with effective solutions and timely record keeping as zero complaint goal while customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directly Jos A Bank Clothier, INC.Corporation is that the feeling of employees receiving uncommitted and recognition for former employees who are forced to make this a company of success with the best asset that is satisfied customers.

    Pros

    The people you work with are amazing. Most are extremely talented but are not given the opportunity to utilize most of their skills.

    Cons

    Upper management is rigid and inflexible. Their thinking is short sighted and they do not wish to change a thing from what they've done for the past 10+ years. Pay is absolutely horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up to new ideas! Pay people what they're worth and consider letting them use skills & concepts that are out of the box. Men's Wearhouse is helping to change this very slowly... hopefully they will speed up the process of overhauling the old way of thinking that is present in all current upper management.

    Pros

    Enjoyed engaging in conversation with customers and being able to help them decide on a purchase for immediate use or to enhance their wardrobe.

    Cons

    At this location there was no up system and if there was, at least one employee never honored it and got away with it upon knowledge of so called management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage and give associates opportunity to make money in stead manipulating duties so that you have all the opportunities. Not fair!!!!!

    Pros

    Working could be very rewarding in the business appreciated your effort. Many intelligent executives worked there. Participated in making improvements as company grew.

    Cons

    There were some business units which did not get what they needed and had manual processes. This is true in many retailers though. It felt bad to not be able to fix everything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sell!

    Pros

    It's a job. That's all I can say.

    Cons

    A ton of work and inadequate pay. You can dang near sell your soul to the devil himself and still won't meet your goal to make commission. Two out of eight people in our store actually make commission every week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should be ashamed of yourselves! Your sales team sells their butts off. Most work 40 hours a week just to bring home $300 a week or less. This is so sad and should be against the law.
