    I worked at Maidenform part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is very professional, proper training is provided, and there is always work to be done. One is never bored at this store. It is very exciting to receive new shipments to see what new offerings there are! The customers are vey loyal and thankful for the help provided to them. At the end of the day you feel like you accomplished something and made people happy. This actually motivates you to want to go to work the next day. The work is not strenuous and the atmosphere is very pleasant. I highly recommend the company, especially since they promote from within.

    Cons

    As with most retail positions, Part Time people do not get benefits and depending on the manager, you might get a schedule that does not allow you to obtain another PT job to pay the bills. (This is a downfall of ANY store that does not offer standardized scheduling to its Part Timers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial culture, creativity, family feel. While every company has politics and this is no different people who choose to stay have a tendency to become like family. CEO encourages involvement.

    Cons

    Recent faltering of vision in senior leadership. With rapid growth in current channels now flat lining CEO was indecisive about what to do next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to channel diversification and international expansion for growth. Present style of expecting growth in declining channels is insanity.
