  1. Unqilo associate

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 paid very well considering minimum wage at the time was about $7.25
    - The work was not routine, there is alot of different jobs everyday.

    Cons

    - You had to do two closing shifts and work weekends, non negotiable at the location I worked at.

    Advice to Management

    - allow more flexible schedualing

    Pros

    -Coworkers were great, really supportive
    -Pay was above minimum wage (at least at the time I was working there)
    -A lot of opportunities to advance quickly in the company (but that may have something to do with the fact that supervisors and managers left very frequently)

    Cons

    -Hours were VERY inconsistent. I would be scheduled for 25+ hours one week and 10 the next, with very little notice
    -Very high turnover in employees
    -They have a very structured way of doing things (ie-you have to memorize certain phrases that you must use with customers, always be smiling, strictly regimented schedules)
    -Managers did not have good communication with staff
    -Put a lot of pressure on even the lowest level of employees, often with their expectations being much higher than what was realistically possible

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATE. Communication was so bad between the managers/supervisors and the staff when I worked there. It also felt like there was very little appreciation for the work that was done.

    Pros

    Very friendly team environment. Though vastly different from store to store, the one I worked in was pretty relaxed. Customers were also patient and easy to work with.

    Cons

    No training before working whatsoever. Cannot get work schedule for the week until the day before. Management was not very organized.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be organized.

    Pros

    You can have a great opportunity to learn how to work at a fashion retail store

    Cons

    The work is very intense. If it is holiday or champion day, you would be crazy about all the staff.

    I worked at Uniqlo

    Pros

    They offer their employees a 30% discount off clothing. $1 raise every 3 months, and good place to move up if you work hard.

    Cons

    Managers didnt really try to get to know you. They should put in more effort in getting to know our names. They also would never let us leave earlier than 11:30 even when there was nothing more to do!
