    Pros

    Good co workers. Glad MW took over however they laid entire depts off in layers. They weren't that honest with us and there is more to come!! The remainders jobs at JAB corp are not safe even thigh MW says they are ... Right.

    Cons

    Prior management was horrendous...s sat on a bunch of money not reinvesting into the company and that was the beginning of the demise. Remember the love of money is the root of all evil. The last senior execs were def evil. Thanks for taking the ship down.

    Advice to Management

    New MW management... Good luck and treat those employees well. They have been abused for years.

    Pros

    Decent breaks, fashion environment, fun coworkers

    Cons

    Doing petty work when not busy. Rude customers half the time. Pay is poor due to the draw that you MUST meet to even START making commission. You'll mostly be making hourly. Yes minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and let employees relax when there is actually nothing to do. Not make up work

    Pros

    Learn a lot about dressing right, really good discount for employees, laid back atmosphere, good amount of business.

    Cons

    Pay structures not always made clear, claim to be a transparent company but difficult to get a straight answer from management, lack of consideration for employees, expect to work a lot of weekends and holidays especially in the first year, unfair politics based of old friendships and family members, lazy co-workers not willing to team sell, being under Men's Wearhouse umbrella makes Jos A Bank into a red headed step-child, broken promises and so many lies.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff better, be more selective of who you chose for store managers and DM's, show some respect for your employees and know the reason you are in the place you are in is in part of your staff, don't be afraid to grab lunch for the staff on a Saturday to make everyone feel like you care at least a little.

    Pros

    The knowledge and skills you learn from this job are incredible for up-and-coming young professionals. Biggest thing would be learning proper business attire and having the wardrobe to be ready for what ever job you move on to afterwards. Paid time off. Commission (although rare) can double your pay check.

    Cons

    Commission system is flawed and you won't make money from it 90% of the year if you're at a lower volume store. At any given time I personally have 15 weddings to keep track of on top of daily sales and store operations, which is not worth the hourly pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Re-work the draw system to accommodate lower volume stores, we've had trouble keeping steady employees due to low income and the inability to make commission. Put the assistant on salary, (even if low) it's almost impossible to live on $9.50 an hour with a maximum of 40 hours/week. You'll retain more assistants that will become more knowledgeable managers if you treat them better.

    Pros

    If you live in a great area with decent clients then this job is never work.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Ridiculous hours when it comes to holidays. Why in the world should this type of store be open on Thanksgiving!??? WHO BUYS A TIE/SUITE ON THANKSGIVING?
