    Pros

    Flexibility to hire at your own will depending on district manager. Efficient training program in place for development of management and sales associates.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibility and not enough hours, varying degrees of communication between district managers, regionals, policies often "change" depending on who you talk to, brand in general having issues defining itself in fashion and sales across the country are down with stores closing.

    Thanks for the review. One of our top initiatives this summer is to launch training at our corporate locations, first focused on front line managers and to include conversations on career mobility!

    Great retail environment and merchandise assortment. The company offers great sales incentives and discounts. Great place to work and stay on top of trends.

    Encourage team members to act as a team and assist each other when needed. Motivate associates to better their selling skills.

    Pros

    Absolutely fabulous discount. Great building block for luxury sales. Good to learn basics of clientele.

    Cons

    Little room for growth, unless in a high volume store. Upper management is distracted and plays favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on stores that are performing, and aid in stores that are struggling to survive. Lower volume stores are just as important as high volume locations.
