    An okay experience

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe people working there are really nice and the 30% discount you get is really nice.

    ConsThe training didn't really prepare me very well for the job as there were many times when I'd be given a task and have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing. It also gets very busy during the weekends and there isn't enough staff around to help out.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Really Good place to work , don't get this job and expect to slack off at anytime

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsPretty good start off pay , friendly staff , good working conditions , You can move up become a to be a supervisor , manager , and etc . so you can become a manager of a new store one day . ♥ possible pay raise every 3mths which is a full 1$ .

    Conswhen you first start well in nyc , you only get 2 days a week , and get paid every 2wks , which is annoying if you need the money , really strict , a lot of pressure feels like your in school other than work sometimes. A lot of work at times but its to be expected. They do expect ALOT from employees but my store is not extremely big. Teach your self , training is kind of rushed.

    Advice to Senior Managementeverything good nothing to add so far. Training need to be better . they have standards but do not teach certain thing to new hires.

    Used and abused

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood pay
    High standards
    Customer service
    Friendly working environment

    ConsFavoritism at it's worst
    Micromanagement
     Unreliable HR
    Promoting the wrong people
    Constant management change

    Advice to Senior ManagementListening to your employees directly rather than through floor managers would really benefit the company and everyone in it. Working so hard and not getting the appreciation and recognition deserved would drive hard working experienced employees away. The evaluation system is pointless if the points are only given to those who you want promoted . Promotions should be more based on experience not on who can pretend to have it right before the evaluation period. Not reporting every good deed an employee does doesn't mean he/ she are less qualified than another one who runs back to tell everything expecting praise for doing his/her job.

    You Become a robot.

    Visual Merchandising Supervisor (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIf you're full time the benefits are pretty amazing. Thats about it.

    ConsBeing a Visual is lots of work for not the best pay. Long hours, and Visual Managers screaming at you. Very hard to move up in this company. They will tell you B.S just to keep you on your A game.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlan thing more properly. Stop with the favoritism, learn how to treat your staff. Stop firing people because you don't necessarily like them...
