    Pros

    Great discount on jeans and that's about it!

    Cons

    This place is truly the pits. Working here has been one of my most miserable experiences. The turn over for this company is like no other and the stores are typically always short staffed. In other words be prepared to work endlessly with very little pay. You can tell that corporate is small, they are very unorganized and seem to hire just about anyone to be a DM. The bonus program is a joke as well.

    Advice to Management

    Less micro-managing and more training for employees would probably help business excel.

    Pros

    Great discount, but product has continuous quality control issues.

    Cons

    Lack of support from corporate management who provide you with no support while aggressively expecting you to succeed is counterproductive to everyone. This stifling work environment worsened emensly after hiring on the Director of Stores in 2011. The company did not need another "leader" who reflected a culture of elitist detachment from its retail staff.
    This company does not address continuous Q.C. issues with clothing, which affects customers belief in purchasing a quality garment. Most items are made in China which is reflected in the amount of returned damaged product from disappointed customers. Its obvious the company is more concerned with quantity or quality, while still promoting itself as "designer denim."
    Bonus structure is a joke and pay is obsolete; with negative and oppressive corporate managemment there is no incentive to succeed. Even when you are proving yourself and exceeding sales expectations you are not acknowledged and encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Your "underlings" are the ones paying your corporate salary. They are to be valued, supported and encouraged. If they reach out and you continuously let them fall, so will your business.

    Don't waste your time with this company; they're not profiting and neither will you.

    Pros

    None. Poorly run business, inefficient business practices, poor communication, "corporation" operating as a startup, poor work/life balance, terrible people

    Cons

    Micro management, poorly run business, not a profiting company, basic jeans and tee brand trying to be luxury, a brand trying to be luxury when no one in the company comes from a luxury background: "corporate" employees consist of low end outlet and forever21 backgrounds, this company is "clicky" whereas people who have some relationship with Joe are given illegitimate authority in the business to interject their personal perspective of business and employees which consist of personal vendettas against any new hires that don't kiss ass, their visuals team is atrocious-the worst I've ever seen, they have no idea what they're doing, and this company is just a typical retail environment; cutthroat, fake, unprofessional, and full of phony and tacky people to put it kindly.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage, support the individuls you hire, ensure business efficiency and quality work environment, communicate, don't call yourself corporate when you operate like a start up, don't eliminate good people building your brand because "corporate" aka best friends with the owner dislike someone on a personal level, stay professional with building business and relationships as your objective or this company will continue to fail, stop trying to make a jeans and tshirt brand "luxury" and/or fashion forward, it's a joke.

    Pros

    Great Discount.
    Wonderful Customers
    Great Associates
    Nice product

    Cons

    Micro-Management from Director of Stores disallows any opportunity learn and grow.
    Opportunity for advancement is extremely minimal. Unfortunately, you aren't rewarded bye your proven skill set. Only bye being one of D.O.S. minion, of which are totally controlled bye fear and scare tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management: Director Of Stores, and her minion of whom she brought with her are going to tear Joe's Jeans Inc. apart! I wish someone would do something before it becomes too late!

    Pros

    My team as fantastic, supportive, and very capable. The products are decent and the price point is not detrimental to business. Definitely opportunities for promotion with in the company - mostly hires in house.

    Cons

    On the corporate side of things the company has a very vague target market and often frustrated stores with out-of-place merchandise. Often times corporate directives were not effectively organized or relayed to store teams. In terms of compensation it left many feeling dissatisfied. Promotions marginally increased one's earnings and the bonus structure was horrid.

    Pros

    co-workers... I have become close with "most" of my co-workers and still remain friends after employment.

    Cons

    management. Absolutely absurd. I have sent multiple emails to the new VP of stores, the Director of stores and the head of HR about my awful experience with Joe's with no response back. I even sent an email about my hours being shorted AFTER giving my two weeks, still nothing... No, "we will investigate this". This is very much a company that is "on to the next one". Point blank, even if you are a top sales producer, they just don't care to listen to you. They do not listen to what you have to say and if there are problems in your store, they just sweep it under-the-rug. I have never felt so be-littled in a work environment and was constantly discriminated against.

    Advice to Management

    Response. Dusting a problem under the rug does not solve the prolem. Be proactive.

    Pros

    Good employee discount, depending on the team you work with there is a good chance for promotion and flexibility with hours. Decent product and presence in denim.

    Cons

    Compensation for employees at many level is rather low. Bonus/commission structure is ineffective and not rewarding nor enticing. Lack of direction with product chain.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to retain quality employees by offering quality compensation. In the service and goods industry that is as highly saturated as denim and ready wear, employees that really act as ambassadors to the brand are invaluable.

    Pros

    It was a very relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Extremely lazy store management. No consideration for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to lead by example. If you sit in the back office on your phone the whole shift and run personal errands every other day on the clock then do not expect your team to have any respect for you.
