    Pros

    Continued training and ideas to be the best in woman's fashion

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say on the company. I truly enjoy being a team member!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Jones Group has Core Values that allow their employees to balance work and family. For retail I feel they compensate a little better than most as they truly look at the associates background to ensure they are offering suitable compensation.

    Pros

    Great clothes, discounts. They understand whenever you need time off, however they are always willing to extend hours and give you more, which is good since a lot of companies these days are trying to give less and less.

    Cons

    Gets very busy, especially at outlet. Customers are usually upper class, so sometimes can be a bit snobby.
