    I have been working at Mexx part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    fast paced, customer driven, fun atmosphere, many customer incentive programs, a lot of repeat business which allows for a solid returning customer base.

    Cons

    shift work, lack of communication, schedules need to be emailed out to employees. It would be essential to have an email group then it could be sent out weekly to all employees, rather than call ins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have weekly staff meetings...communication is key to success

    Don't work at Montreal Head Office

    I worked at Mexx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    May be OK at store level, great discount for employees.

    Cons

    Since the company has been sold from Liz Claiborne to private equity Gores Group, the new owner is reducing every costs he can. From 350 employees at Head office, only 70 are still working there. They cut the entire design department, and only work with the European collections. The new owners have no idea how retail and fashion work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either sell the company to someone who cares about it or hire qualified people to run it. Do not think that European collections will work here, that's the reason why there was a local design team.

    I worked at Mexx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Mexx very much, this is mainly because of the wonderful co-workers I had. I've worked with two different mangers over the time that I worked there, both were fair and nice most of the time.

    Cons

    During the two years that I worked there the the company got dropped by investors en taken over by new ones, a lot of high up people got fired then new ones were hired then a lot got fired again, so there was a lot of change which I feel had a negative affect on everyone who worked there

    Extremely competitive on the sales force; things can get hostile.

    Work on your managing your staff. Fluctuations in demand were not well managed in terms of staffing.
