    I have been working at Syms

    Pros

    It was a great initial experience to the behind scenes of corporate america. I would have liked to have had the opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    It was a very wasteful company that did not appreciate the workers that it had. I regret not asking for advancement i the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the employees that are hard working and never say a word of complaint. Those are the employees that should be compensated and listened to.

    I have been working at Syms

    Pros

    A lot of times you're doing nothing at all because business is so slow.

    Cons

    Managers get mad at you for talking to co-workers even though there are no customers and the sales floor is stocked/clean. No opportunity to grow, overall a pretty depressing place to work.

    I have been working at Syms full-time

    Pros

    The co-workers of Syms and Filenes Basement were wonderful. I loved my job and who I worked with both at Filenes Basement and Syms.

    Cons

    Marcy ignored sound business advice. It was the retail version of "Kitchen Nightmares"!

    I worked at Syms

    Pros

    The job is really easy and for the most part all of the people are nice. It is just extremely boring and slow at times.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be slow and boring. The store has a distinct smell which takes some time to get used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at Syms should allow their sales associates to earn commission for their efforts selling fine suits and clothing.
