    Pros

    Pretty decent pay if you can sell, management is well trained (usually) but advancement beyond store manager is limited.

    Cons

    The feel good environment has been replaced by corporate profit and promotions. Customer service is not the priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look back at what got you to this point.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great training throughout the company. Flexible schedules. Great Holiday Parties.

    Cons

    In the corporate environment, for the amount of work that needs to be done, the pay is below industry standards. The 401K match is also very low.

    Pros

    Good discount,awesome customers,there are some great people that work for the company,but it seems the harder they work and the better job they do,the more they get treated poorly.

    Cons

    Horrible store managers,absolutely lazy,rude to customers,and unprofessional,store managers and AM's have no skills at all in management and should not be in management anywhere.Promotions in management solely based on sales, without any other basic management skills. RM does not address serious issues with management as a matter of fact it is ignored. Anywhere from theft,sexual harassment,threatening behavior, the list goes on and on. Women in the company are not treated equally. People that work hard for the company are not rewarded and bad behavior is rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I see many law suites coming there way in the future.Wise up and take a good hard look at who your leaders are and pay attention to customer complaints.

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager
    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager

    Pros

    Great company culture - awesome Christmas party and annual management trip to California. Random pizza days and lunch bought for us on most Saturdays.
    Fun co-workers (I worked at multiple locations and of course, this wasn't always the case)
    Earning potential (maximize sales and you WILL make money)
    Relatively easy work (obviously customers can get out of hand but if you treat them right, you won't have this problem)
    Job security (it is VERY hard to get fired from this company)

    Cons

    Lack of training for CSAs and some wardrobe consultants.
    Many lazy managers - I worked for two different store managers who were both extremely lazy in their own way.
    Managers held responsible for loss prevention without any real training or resources.
    Hours - nights, weekends, holidays. *this is the only reason why I left - it will never change. it's retail*

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Keep a closer eye on your store managers. Make sure they are working WITH the team.
    -Don't wait until the week before prom season to hire additional CSAs.
    -Develop a required training program for all CSAs. Conduct Tux High more frequently - require CSAs to attend multiple times every year as refreshers.
    -Amp up security for loss prevention or provide better training to managers and staff.

    Pros

    Nothing. Great place to work if you can get in the click, then you don't have to work.

    Cons

    No trainging, pets don't have to work, but get all the credit for work done. Too much favoritism. No room for advancement. Misrepresenting their quotas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people. Work. Make sure your employees are being truthfull about their numbers at the end of the day.
