not much only a day of shadowing a rude manager
worst job ever, hated it.
Was really easy. Trained us step by step and then we learned register and fitting room last.
Pretty much non existent! A new associate is given 2 hours to assimilate to Ann Inc. All training is on the job training. All videos provided for client experience, SOP and credit are several years old and very out dated if you can get them to even play.
They sales people with skill or personality. I was told by store manager during my tenure that "some people have relationships here, but you are professional".
They start you off in the dressing room to get to know the layout, afterwards you learn the cash register. I am not sure about the management training program.
No job training as a manager, they expect you to know everything
Management gives you the bare minimum of training and then you're left on your own. You definitely have to have problem solving skills and common sense to figure out what to do and what not to do.
The management I had at first kind of just thought I knew everything already, but I didn't. Later, we got a new manager and she trained me correctly.
Best thing is that you learn by doing, the worst thing is that you learn by doing. There's no real formal training, you're thrown right into it. You may shadow someone for a shift but that's about it.
