    I worked at Men's Wearhouse

    Pros

    Great coworkers . Always eager to help each other.

    Cons

    Very low compensation for a sales associate. Corporate and High management neglect employees of lesser volume stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The trend of sales is shifting in NY . Too many older assosciates who have a big gap with communication and style of the current prime clients .

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment and great people. Great pay. The discounts are amazing.

    Cons

    Management needs balls to be transparent about what they think about their employees. I am refering to when I was fired. This individual should have just said so and be straight forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some spine when firing an employee.

    Pros

    Discount
    PMDA
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Management has little to no education. Lawsuits waiting to happen. The level of unprofessionalism in this company is unbelievable.
    Wages are a joke!
    Managers believe they shouldn't do anything around the store. They go home at 2-3 pm or earlier, but stay clocked in and later call for someone else to clock them out at 5-6! And good luck trying to call out sick. If it means manager will have to work extra hours, they'll pretty much force you to come in!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check up on your managers! They lie to you left and right!

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance for full timers, vacation days, sick time and a fun holiday party.

    Cons

    Retail hours (although better than most department stores as long as your store isn't in a mall). Also if you're commission based sometimes you deal with "sharks" who will take your sales if you are not careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim the fat. Get rid if those who steal or are dishonest rather than demoting them just because they can sell well. Stop showing favoritism just because the employee has been around for years and years. Rules are rules and by not punishing those who break them ( sometimes even rewarding them) you can only expect the problems to continue. Also, don't get rid of everything that makes Tmw unique. Some of these things have a cost but having a unique company culture will draw new talent your way.

    Pros

    Customer base, not crazy holiday hours.

    Cons

    Inconsistent messages from corporate to store level. No longer mindset of corporate working for us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what made the company great. Become more knowledgeable of how directives from corporate work/don't work at store level. Everything always looks great on paper.

    I worked at Men's Wearhouse

    Pros

    Flexible schedule (a plus for a college student)

    very good time-off policy (vacation, sick, floating holidays, and sabbatical)

    tuition reimbursement! as a full-time employee, the maximum you can receive $1200 a year, part-time receives $600

    fun holiday parties (they're are not as good as they were in previous years, but it beats other employers' holiday parties for sure)

    generous employee discount (50% to 60%)

    play games in the store on down time (the employer encourages it)

    free lunch on Saturdays

    open door policy to corporate office (not sure how it is 2015 and beyond, but in the past, employees were encouraged to voice concerns on management, store atmosphere, and personal experiences in the workplace. the corporate office would take this very seriously and rapidly work in order to address the employee's concerns.)

    Cons

    little room for long-term personal growth

    change in leadership- many of the positive features of working here such as awesome health insurance (my insurance in ways was better than federal government employees), family oriented work environment, holiday parties (bigger and better as far as venue location, food selection, cocktail bar, employee gifts, bonuses and prizes, and DJ selection) have changed SIGNIFICANTLY around the time a new CEO came in office... maybe be a coincidence :/ I completely understand that in order to grow, companies may find it appropriate to cut costs, but it seemed as most of the sacrifices were at the employees' expense.

    the pay really sucks- for as much as they ask of you, you would expect semi-annual or even annual raises... the paid stays the same for years and if you do get a raise, it's not much to account the raise in cost of living.

    cannot trust top leadership because they do not keep their promises- they look out for themselves

    the work/team environment (co-workers) can be a bit unpleasant at times- of course it depends on the store. the typical aggressive sales atmosphere seems to be the norm. drama, stealing sales, and bitter attitudes would mess up the entire store's emotional atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wonder if George can come back... wishful thinking I guess.

    Pros

    has a great foundation: has great benefits, such as paid vacation, sabbatical, sick time, floating holidays and if you or your family are going through a very bad time (sick or natural disaster) the company will financially help through hard times. Also educational reimbursement for part time and full time employees.

    Cons

    A huge part of your job experience is going to be based solely on how well you can kiss your managers butts. This includes store managers as well as regional managers who breath heavily down everyones backs. Doing so, can determine good vs bad shift times, whether showing up late here and there is acceptable or not, moving up possibilities etc etc…

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you start promoting those who can do the job right as well as manage without bias, the rest will take care of itself.
