    Good, formerly, small company that hasn't figured out how to be a big company yet

    Salaried Employee (Current Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsLots of opportunity for the right person
    Great co-workers
    Flexible work schedule;
    In house gym and fitness classes
    Accessible management

    ConsSink or swim "training"
    Owner and President can micromanage
    Inter-office communication is weak
    IT systems are weak but may be getting better

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter training, especially for people in new jobs.
    Change is always hard, but it would be easier on everyone if there were more timely communication about changes as they come.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Great customers and staff, horrible store manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCustomers are great, staff is amazing, the concept of Title Nine is inspiring.

    ConsStore manager didn't play well with others, oppressive work environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't write up employees for having a miscarriage at work, or for not apologizing appropriately to staff about missing work to go to the hospital for said miscarriage (but returning to work the same day). Don't be cold, heartless, and force people to quit just before they get fired.

     

    A positive retail experience.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood pay for retail and good coworkers.

    ConsPoor management at the location where I worked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't keep employees constantly in the dark-- doesn't help the store culture.

    Good place... for starting out

    Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) Emeryville, CA

    Pros- Quirky company culture
    - Free gym membership (to a really nice gym)
    - Nice loft style office space
    - Employees go on "lunch runs" together
    - Encourage promotion from within
    - Small company = tons of hands on experience

    Cons- Work load isn't split equally between departments (merchandising, creative, web, cs, etc.).
    - I wouldn't recommend getting a Retail or Warehouse job here. Very different thing than working in the corporate headquarters.
    - It's common to be given a task and then told to "run with it". Sink or swim.
    - Overall low communication between internal departments
    - Salaries are lower than average for the jobs/job titles performed
    - Technical equipment is dated

    The management is incompetent and the sales staff ends up paying for it.

    Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsTitle Nine seems to go out of its way to really foster a sense of feel good girl power by promoting an atmosphere of play and community engagement. They reward employees with team getaways that all the staff of a store plan together. They encourage management to stick around by paying for them to fly to California for a large company get together where they play sports all day and bond. Competitions between store employees as to who can do the most pushups or leg squats are common. Overall, Title Nine and the management it attracts aim foster a sort of backyard basketball sense of fun and community among its employees.

    ConsTitle Nine management is extremely disorganized, haphazard and seemingly incompetent. Hiring is often something that is left until the last possible moment, and only when it turns into a crisis does management deal with it. In one scenario, a walk-in inquirer was hired to fill a lead sales position, trained for a few hours and left to close the store and balance the books, without any supervision by management or senior employees, on her very first day. In another scenario, the assistant store manager left the company for a new job. The position was still not filled when three months later, the store manager left for a new job. Being left without any management, an employee who had been working as an entry level sales associate for less than six months took on the role of assistant manager until headquarters could fill the two management roles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake responsibility for the work that you need to do to keep the place running.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
