    Pros

    It really is what you make of the experience. They give you enough flexibility to input your ideas but you just have to put it in action.

    Cons

    It's pretty much like you're running your own business, which is great but there are so many areas of focus that you can become overwhelmed. Expect long hours and lots of chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Management is supportive, but they still need to work on their communication system to decrease double work. My advice is for them to focus more on the well-being of store managers and asm because that's the future of their business.

    Pros

    -Friendly environment -Discount -You are never doing the same thing over and over, everyone switches duties

    Cons

    -There's a lot of stuff sales associate need to memorize takes a while to get familiar with everything -they should increase the pay to 10$ because we really do a lot ! and more than other retailers I worked before


  6. For being retail its a great job, pay is 11/hr at the beverly center, so you cant beat that.

    Pros

    -Plenty of room for advancement within the company -Decent starting wage for hourly workers / solid entry level salary for management positions -Discount on high quality clothing -Being a part of a company that has an influence on modern fashion

    Cons

    -Unrealistic expectations of hourly paid workers -Long hours for management -Company environment/culture feels tacky and fake -Some of the Japanese values don't translate well in American culture

    Advice to Management

    Keep to the basics. Stop trying to collaborate with high fashion brands. You will only be successful in a few American cities if your focus is on luxury brands. The fast majority of Americans want high quality clothing, at a decent price. Not specialty brands.

    I worked at Uniqlo part-time

    Pros

    Better than most retail stores. There's actual method to the madness. Would work here again.

    Cons

    A lot needs to be done. Never get out on time, but that's a given in any retail store.

    Pros

    They offer their part-time employees great benefits and product discounts. Additionally, they attempt to create a great work culture that tries to be inclusionary of new workers.

    Cons

    The management of some stores can be very poor when it comes to organizing the sales associate team for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on store management techniques.
