    Uncooperative and double standards

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    Prosgreat store employees. good vacation pay. Overall a friendly environment at store level.

    ConsThere is a lack of leadership with higher management at the district manager and regional manager level. They communicate amongst themselves, not to store level staff to provide direction. Double standards, ethnic and homophobic discrimination.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should work harder at training and developing their assistant managers. And they should take ownership for their own mistakes as opposed to blaming lower level managers and staff

    It wasn't the best.

    Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) Deerfield Beach, FL

    ProsSeveral of the managers were sympathetic and really helped me understand what it meant to be a part of retail. The other employees were friendly.

    ConsOne manager in particular was really harsh on the other employees and criticized/favored employees based on looks. While some employees may take the extra time out of whatever they're doing to help you there's still some that will purposely ignore you, generally rude.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should pay more for the hard work that the associates do and for all they deal with.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very little chance of advancement and raises.

    Sales Floor Associate (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsLots of free time since they do not hire full time you will never have more than 25 hours a week in the Boston location. This was confirmed by all employees that the management will not let you get more than 25 hours a week.

    ConsNot enough pay or hours to even pay for rent. This job is primarily only good if you started working here at the age of 16 and was somehow able to bump your pay above 10 an hour. They give raises entirely off the points you gain out of 50 on your yearly review so the max you can gain is 50 cents in a year. but they never give you more than 3 stars even if you work very hard. so the average raise is around 30 cents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your pay scaling and return the option to be full time instead of only hiring part time. you will never have truly dedicated workers if you only care about paying everyone minimum wage.

    Good work environment

    Fitting Room Associate, Sales Floor Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) Ledgewood, NJ

    ProsEmployees are friendly, lots of opportunities to change positions and train for different jobs within the store, managers are incredibly understanding and willing to work with you on your schedule and other desires within the company.

    ConsPersonally, working in this type of setting just wasn't for me, otherwise it is a very good place for people who enjoy working in this type of work environment. The money I was making just wasn't enough for me to want to continue to work there despite this.
