    I worked at Tilly's full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tilly's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The industry is great, this place just sucks. Extremely hard to think of any other pros, discount is only 20% and not on top of sales or promotions, so you're treated just like the customers who get 20% off coupons in the free catalogs.

    Cons

    Horrible management, low pay, penny raises and promotions, hard work does not pay off here.

    Advice to Management

    They desperately need to clean house.

    I have been working at Tilly's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    . Met some great people . Some managers actually care about well-being of employees . 40% off every season

    Cons

    .Met some not so great people who only care about themselves and their sales goals . Management does have favorites . Discount is low compared to other retailers .No room for growth ; One associate is still a lead and has been for 4 years

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe everything management tells you as some views are skewed.

    I have been working at Tilly's as a contractor (Less than a year)

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
