    I have been working at dELiA*s part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - The team works well together making sure the customers' needs are met.
    - This is a great first job in retail, there's not too much pressure, and it is fun.

    Cons

    - I hear some employees talk behind each other's backs, which is expected considering this is a female-dominant industry where things can get catty.
    - When I first started, the managers just threw me out on to the sales floor without much training, so I felt like I had to figure a lot out on my own in the beginning, looking clueless in front of customers.
    - Also, we are up walking around for our full shift, and definitely make sure you eat before you go to work, because you will be starved when you get off!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Treat all of the employees equally, even though you may be closer to some more than others.
    - Keep a positive environment in the store.
