    I worked at Men's Wearhouse full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    New company leadership means this is run more like a corporation and not like a small business. When I started there it was like working for a small business and it was great.

    I worked at Men's Wearhouse part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really nice co-workers and good environment. Great place to work for a first job or part-time work. Lots of hours.

    Cons

    too many hours, though I'm sure people would enjoy it. Also some were hired for seasonal and then promptly layed off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the great work

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse

    Pros

    awesome pay structure and excellent benefits

    Cons

    There is a surprising divide between MW "Lifers" and those who are not. Not surprising is the ever present retail drama between employees and management, as well as those who will do ANYTHING to further their own position in the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place a much higher value on MERIT based promotions and establish firm rewards/punishments for sales performances. Too many sales people are under performers facing no punishment, while too many are achieving well above expectations without notice or reward

    Pros

    Decent employee discount. They have a somewhat organized training program for salesmen but teach no product knowledge whatsoever. You get a few holidays but are not compensated for them fairly.

    Cons

    You have to be ok with ripping people off everyday. Store managers are a joke, no real leadership skills. As a commissioned salesperson if no one comes in the store that week then you make squat. This company does not do background checks on it's employees so don't be surprised if you end up working with shady criminals. A crappy holiday party every year does not make up for the fact that you are earning less then 25K a year.

    I worked at Men's Wearhouse

    Pros

    Sweet discount on clothes. PMDA. Weekly paycheck. Christmas party used to be a sweet party. Manager of the main Sioux falls store passed away a few years ago after many dedicated years to the company. MW paid all his medical bills for his family. The Willie Lopez fund was an amazing program. The guy who's running 4141 now, obviously loves his employer, job, and employees.

    Cons

    CSA pay is sub par. Absolutely no room for professional development whatsoever. Especially with how badly you want the tuxedo business to thrive. The shipping hubs for tuxes sucks. You can tell the tuxedos are worn out and...a rental. Nothing too special. But frequent use will do that I guess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do we have 2 stores right next to each other in Sioux falls South Dakota? SD is rapidly growing. Put 4184 on the East side of town. You'd be amazed at how well they may do. Residents of south Dakota love choosing between East side business and west side business. We're so spread out that I think some people go to the competition just to stay away from the mall.

    Pros

    Benefits and decent pay if you sell otherwise its 5$ and hour no exceptions or pay increases ever. Vacation and sick time plus floating holidays for full time.

    Cons

    The feeling of ripping off a customer. is always there and unpleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire within in company. You are ticking off your current employees by promising promotions and then hiring someone off the street literary the following pay.
