    Pros

    Nationally know fashion store with spectacular products. Well respected by people who are not aware of the atmosphere behind the scenes.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, lack of support, and discrimination runs rampant in the stores. Upper management doesn't care or doesn't believe the employees. But then doing only 1-2 store visits per year is no way to really see what's going on. Store directors harass, bully, and discriminated against employees. She also tried to inflict religious beliefs and made life miserable for you if you were not on the same side politically.

    Advice to Management

    Have a higher awareness of the day to day activity in the stores. Just blindly believing the store director is a horrible and irresponsible practice. When I brought the harassment and the fact that I was being bullied at work to the regional manager, she told the store director and I was in even more hot water and my life was a living hell. Dumb!
