    Great discount, I suppose
    Freedom to do as you'd like, until they tell you to change it

    Cons

    low pay, long hours
    company values very poor
    no real direction, but a lot of criticism
    infrastructure built off people who don't know what they're doing, but know an awful lot of buzzwords!

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Redding, CA

    I worked at Romy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Clothes were cheap.. because they were cheap. Free money for clothes. I loved my coworkers. I even loved my DM and the other SM in my district. What I didn't like was the way the owner made us run his company.

    Cons

    LOW pay on salary in a state where you are supposed to be paid overtime. They talked me into quitting my job of 7 years to work for their new up and coming company so I could open their first store in California. Little did I and my staff know that this was a lie. Right towards the end of my employment we found out that the company had previously had 3 stores throughout California that they closed years ago. They paid me flat salary and pressured me into doing so much work that I was in my store 50+ hours a week to get tasks completed, ended up making around $10 an hour some weeks. Then three months into my employment we got a phone call that they were shutting down every store 5 days later. That was all the time we got. No health care, unorganized, terrible technology, Small cheap clothes, talked to everyone about you if they didn't like you.

    I have been working at Romy part-time

    Pros

    Like most part time retail jobs, hours are flexible but can vary depending on the season. Because the store is small, associates shouldn't ever feel completely overwhelmed by the work load. Store management is very understanding and always willing to help you learn and grow.

    Cons

    Hours vary, and often go under or over what you might want/need depending on the season. Corporate makes strange decisions often that can negatively affect the store or be counterproductive. The POS system is outdated and for people new to retail can be hard to learn/navigate at first. The pay scale is also rather low and doesn't necessarily correspond to employee responsibilities or level.

    I worked at Romy

    Pros

    Corporate is pretty non-existant so there is a lot of flexibility within the store when it comes to marketing and visual merchandising.

    Cons

    The pay scale is much lower than industry average and the company does not care about employee development as much as it cares about filling positions and trying to make their bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to focus more on employee development and creating a cohesive store environment. There is a lack of communication at times as well between upper management and store level.
