    Pros

    I made some great friends at delias! And we had some great fun in the store. The visual merchandising aspect was really fun.

    Cons

    The worst part was dealing with annoying bratty teens customers all day. They liked to destroy our logo tee wall that took hours to fold and then they wouldn't even buy anything because typically their moms just dropped them off at the mall.

    Pros

    I worked at Delia's for 7 years. I had a great management team and I eventually became apart of that team. You really learn how to work on your communication and customer service skills.

    Cons

    Each store's success and communication fell on the store management team which depended on the competency of the store manger. Calling other stores was a mixed bag, you might get the rudest and not the brightest of management team and staff. It all depended on who trained you.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate office was too disconnected from the stores and to the fashion turn around times of its competitors.

  8. i will miss you forever, delias

    To move up listen to corporates advice and show hard work ethic. Company is now out of business
