    I worked at K&G Fashion Superstore

    Pros

    Upper management pay rates are good compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Sales change to frequently in the suit department and customer want to always get price adjustments which the company does not want to do. There is not enough assoicates to properly run the store and give good customer service. Schedules change weekly and have at least one day that you close and then come back to open the next morning. Employees do not get high enough wage to keep their performace levels up, thus they burn out and leave. There is usual always a person who calls off their shift and no one to replace them is available. The store has exptended hows during the holiday season and is open on Thankgiving. The company has a lot of black out times for vactions which makes it extremly hard to use your vaction time. It is also, you might as forget about using your sick hours if you are in upper management, because there is no one to cover your shift. So you better be very heathly. Another downside is taking customers to the bathroom non stop and then cleanning up the gross bathroom messes they leave behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM, WITH THE SAME EXPECTATIONS.

    I have been working at K&G Fashion Superstore full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very small, tight knit office community where everyone knows everyone and says good morning and hangout after work

    Cons

    Not a true buying office because its so far from the NY/LA markets. Don't really get the full buying experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting within and hire truly qualified, open-minded, new refreshing talent who have other experiences that will help to promote and evolve the business. Not keep it the same as it has always been, which is what happens by promoting within instead of looking outside of the company.

    Pros

    Worker friendly, in a fast paced environment. Management is supportive of their subordinates and there is minimal stress

    Cons

    Employee compensation needs to be brought up to 2013 living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Switch to a bonus/commission based pay structure and you will gain a better, more motivated worker who up boost your gross margin. The more he or she makes, the more the company makes; not to mention a more satisfying experience for the customer.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, good management/employee relationships, some room for advancement, good atmosphere, et al.

    Cons

    My current store has no water fountain nor water cooler at the moment and does not see anything changing in the near future. Only receive benefits after getting 36 per week. Raises are capricious and arbitrary. Some management could use better people skills. Some duties not really within classification.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us some water! The customers cannot even get water. Give better benefits for part timers. More company functions, (i.e. get togethers, activities, etc).
