    I have been working at Rainbow USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rainbow provides a positive environment for learning and training new hires as well as veteran employees. They seek to develop and promote the staff from within the company. Rainbow offers customers fun fashion at a affordable price which makes happy loyal customers.

    Cons

    Most retail environments have an issue with internal and external theft. Rainbow thrives to have a low shrink during it's semi-annual inventory. Recently, the shrink goal has been lowered from 1% to .75%. The percentage of shrink will determine whether store management qualifies for shrink bonus. The lowering of the goal puts a greater amount of pressure on Store Managers and staff. Loss prevention is a team effort, so staff has to be regularly trained to prevent theft.

    Advice to Management

    Your store will thrive when you have the right staff in position. Your assistant managers must learn to be assertive and perform their duties as if they were the manager of the store. Each sales associate must be held accountable for professional and courteous customer service at all times. These components will help your customers to be happy and your sales to increase.

    Pros

    401 k- flexible shifts-

    Cons

    Rainbow took away the managers ability to hire sales associates for the store. The District Managers had to interview every sales associate candidate eligible for the position, which left the stores understaffed a lot of times because it was done at the District Managers Availability.

    Pros

    Flexibility Very nice, clean enviornment.

    Cons

    The pay is not so good. Only benifits for full-time workers.

    Advice to Management

    There is more attention needed to workers, especially newer ones. Usually a "good job" or words of encouragement could do some good. Good job to get you through the week.
