    Pros

    For the most part, the hours worked are pretty decent and you get paid a fair amount for the work that you put in.

    Cons

    I may work a short shift and have a 30 minute break. If I work a long shift, I still only get a 30 minute break.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is working a thirteen hour shift, let them have more than a 30 minute break, or at least offer some other incentive

    Pros

    Great opportunity to expand retail experience and gain knowledge of the men's clothier business. Working with clients is GREAT and generally a fun experience.

    Cons

    Very difficult to earn weekly commission levels based on the "buy 1, get 3 free" suit/sport coats and other specials constantly running.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the hourly rate for employees or decrease the base retail sales needed to achieve commission. Better incentive for employees which will result in higher employee retention.

    Pros

    Co-workers and customers are the true benefits of this company.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, limited advancement opportunities as positions are rarely being posted, then filled from outside JoS. A Bank. No real field training support for stores to learn/adapt to new processes, expectations, timelines for conversions etc. to support the System/Culture change. Two or three people can not support in excess of 600 stores effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver instead of destroy Culture & Values.

    Pros

    The company sells outstanding apparel for men. The quality of the clothing is excellent and the cost, when promotions are offered, is competitive.

    Cons

    The company, prior to the Men's Warehouse purchase, was poorly run. Management, at all levels, was inefficient, and the company's infrastructure, both IT and mechanical, was outdated/antiquated. The prior senior management, quite obviously, did not invest money back into the company.

    Pros

    Great place to work, fun

    Cons

    I enjoy working for the company and the only thing would be to increase employee pay scale for all hard working employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep employee first mentality. show appreciation for the hard working employees within the company. keep the mindset of employee promotion from within

    Pros

    Great staff and work environment. Good for an interim work expectation. Commission pay was a plus but not always attainable.

    Cons

    Low hourly pay. Managers make a good check but the rest are left to fend for themslelves. Tough work schedule and upper level management is unrelenting and micromanaging

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. High turnover rate is due to the lack of willingness to change and adapt.

    Pros

    Love working with the customer. My boss is excellent at customer retention.

    Cons

    Hard to live on the pay of $8.50 an hour. I have been there several years and they gave a new person more money than I make. They keep promising to take the draw away now that we are owned by The Men's Wearhouse but they still haven't done it.

    Advice to Management

    I am a good long-time employee who is 50 years old and cannot live on 8.50 an hour. You are fixing to lose one of your management team and I enjoy my job have very good sales and ipt but need more money.
