    Pros

    Good amount of hours, nice staff, good discount. The schedule was done fairly.

    Cons

    Management was flaky.they were always late in the morning. The retail schedule is not desirable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent personnel to run your stores. Give more time to properly stock your sales floor. Work along side the associates to show you care about the business.

    Pros

    My coworkers! I have learned a lot ( i.e. Handling customer issues, multi tasking, and stress management).

    Cons

    BEWARE!!!!!!! No breaks, constantly having to help other stores, CREDIT CARDS, upper mismanagement, promotional changes numerous times a week (the entire store), outdated policies & misleading coupons! High employee turnover (lower and upper management). As an assistant you will do 90% of the management workload for half the pay. If you do not open enough credit cards you will be threatened and eventually written up. No balance between work and personal life

    Advice to Management

    STOP with "NY deal" and coupons! Don't preach customer first, but yet continue upset your customers and have your management at the front lines of your mistakes! Have more respect for your employees- it insults our intelligence and talent. Lastly, do not set your stores up for failure and then blame the us, the stores. Invest money into your product (training, store upkeep, and clothing).

    Pros

    The discount that you get on clothes is great after your 60 day waiting period

    Cons

    No work life balance
    Unrealistic expectations
    Poor communication
    Terrible benefits
    Unrealistic bonus potential
    Lack of technology
    Not tolerant of diversity

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in the stores speaking to the management to get honest feedback, there is no opportunity to discuss the issues we are facing with out fear of retaliation

    Pros

    They pay you well to get you to come to their organization but that is it.

    Cons

    The worst company to ever work for. They are always conducting lay offs and restructuring which doesn't say anything good about this company. Headquarters management is the worst I have seen in all my years in the industry. They are so cheap and have no budgets to do you job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the C level management because they don't know how to run a company. This company has a horrible reputation in the industry and I didn't find out until it was to late.

    Pros

    You get to meet new people because it usually gets busy. And you can get a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, not enough hours, managers take advantage of sales associates, lack of responsibility from managers as well. They also expect too much from sales associates.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equally.
