    Pros

    Gratisis, making customers feel Gorgeous, team playing

    Cons

    Company did not take care of their associates. Associates worked over time always last minute and were not considered full time. They were given no benefits. Our store reached their quota and moved into a new 2 story building. No jobs were promised not even to managers/ Supervisors who worked their butts off to reach their quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your associates

    Pros

    Love the people I worked with.

    Cons

    No over time. We worked there until 2am working on floor sets. Can anyone here who got over time pay for this let me know how that happened?

    Advice to Management

    Pay better.

    Pros

    - What can you say? It's an iconic brand
    - The senior teams are incredibly gifted and they know how to pump out consistent quality copy and visuals
    - You'll love some of your coworkers (and want their jobs badly)
    - Good eats
    - Pay's decent for the work
    - A solid add to your resume

    Cons

    - What can you say? Their products are not necessary the best quality
    - You're likely to hit a hard ceiling and then there's not further upward mobility
    - Expect a lot of politicking (may that's your thing)
    - Expect to go home to get things done
    - Expect to use it as a springboard for another position (outside the firm)

    Advice to Management

    - Watch out for death by middle management (just because you'd really like to delegate something off doesn't mean the recipient of this duty is capable)
    - Spend more on cultivating our younger talent (we bled through some amazing young-uns and I would love to see this happen less)
    - Transparency is always a nice touch -- but if that's not possible, please be transparent about not being transparent. It's okay to say "I'm not going to tell you guys" when you expect your staff to be adults

    Pros

    Fun environment
    Get discounted items or free items monthly.
    Comfortable working clothes.
    Fun customers.
    Ability to move up in a store, but not sure about corporate.

    Cons

    Hours vary.
    Pay isn't worth the time and service we have to put in.
    Can sometimes feel like management isn't prepared.
    Working with mainly women can sometimes get catty.

    Management was so fun to work with. Strong brand with loyal customers made it easy to enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Meeting credit card goals was difficult and often took away from the customer service experience.

    Advice to Management

    Customers were always asking to bring back old fashions!

    Pros

    Discount is good and it's satisfying to help people

    Cons

    I had to report to 7 different managers. Made for some confusing days. You cannot follow your customer, so someone can steal your sale.

    Advice to Management

    I know there is a lot of people but either cut the fat from management or all get on the same page.
