    Pros

    A fun office atmosphere with lots of variety and lively people. Casual attire and relatively good benefits. Company events are usually a good time as well.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant. Not much room for promotion within the company despite many stellar performance reviews for many of my coworkers.

    Pros

    Learned how to fold clothing. Store Manager was really helpful and nice.

    Cons

    Horrible sale's floor management. Really negative/unhealthy work environment where I was constantly attacked by shift supervisor's for simple things. I was really happy to leave this place and work at a retail position where they actually treat you with respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the ranking system. It turns employees against each other and turns things into a mess when someone steals someone else's sale.

    Pros

    Casual work environment and atmosphere. Employees are have laid back attitudes. Management is very respectful to employee's outside commitments and obligations.

    Cons

    Average pay is below average but to most employees this is outweighed by the overall atmosphere of the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest not hiring so many members of upper management from other companies that have gone out of business.

    Pros

    As a programmer, it was cool working at Tilly's. I worked pretty hard, but I hardly had to work OT. I got a lot of respect. Basically if you work hard and well, you get treated right.

    Cons

    Company uses outdata software. For a programmer, this is terrible. They say they are not a tech company and that is the reason behind that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tilly's needs to understand that the latest software for their development team in the long run helps because then they can create more agile, sleeker applications.
