    Cool Clothes + Poor Pay + Oppressive Environment = Working at Joan Shepp

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsExposure to awesome fashion.

    Great sales people and staff!

    Did I mention awesome fashion??? The clothes are absolutely beautiful.

    ConsAs an employee at Joan Shepp, especially an employee on the corporate side of things, you are constantly subjected to upper management's mood swings. Management will often tell you to do one thing and then tell you to do something totally contradictory at another point... all while denying the initial directive.

    Staff is grossly underpaid. Great demands are placed on employees but they are not compensated in line with these expectations.

    Management can be very disrespectful to employees. It was not uncommon for staff members to be yelled at and talked down to. Some employees have even complained about being hit. Upon hire, middle management warned about "crying Fridays." They coined the term because upper-management usually made an office employee cry every Friday.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate and respect your staff more. Your turnover rate with office staff is ridiculously high. At some point, you have to ask yourself why.

    Do not be afraid to let people have opinions- just because someone disagrees with something that you do or say doesn't mean they don't have your best interest at heart. A member of middle management once warned me that you should never disagree with upper-management because you will be fired. This person went on to say that even if upper-management was wrong, they would pretend that they were right so that they could keep their job.

    An atmosphere of fear does not foster creativity and productivity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great for fashion, not so great for employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThe best reason to work at Joan Shepp is the amazing fashion featured at the boutique. This is the only shop in Philadelphia to carry some of these amazing designers. The employee discount is also a perk.

    ConsOwner treats employees like an article of clothing being sold in the shop. You are considered the property of Joan Shepp. The salary paid would not allow you to be a regular customer of the boutique.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like people. Listen when they offer advice or have an issue. Compensate employees based on the amount of work they do for your boutique and they will not resent you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
