  • Employee Discount  (33 comments)

    “Great discount offers on all products, including ELFA at 50% off.”

  • Health Insurance  (24 comments)

    “Terrible for part time employees!!!! It offers next to no coverage. It would be cheaper to go without coverage and risk getting sick, than to pay...”

  • 401K Plan  (11 comments)

    “Good plan, when they match it!!! The company was on a pay freeze for years including a freeze on matching 401k, so you get what you put in.”

    They offer PTO as opposed to vacation/sick days and that is a nice perk.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Visual Merchandiser in New York, New York State

    As an employee, you will receive a 40% discount on most products, 50% off elfa, giftcards, and custom closets. You will also be able to sign up for fulltime or partime health insurance. The worst part is that you won't receive paid time off until you've been with the company at least three years.

    Typical benefits for a part time employee at a retail company. Merchandise discount was significantly higher than virtually all other companies.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Part Time Sales Associate in Chicago, Illinois

    Part time benefits are great! PTO for part timers, which is rare among retailers. Dental, vision, even pet insurance. EXCEPT THE PART TIME HEALTH CARE - ABSOLUTE CRAP!!!! I opted out of their health insurance because it offers almost nothing in return. My pet has better health insurance than my part time offer. If you are a full time worker the health insurance is amazing, but part time is next to nothing! Be ready to pay a lot out of pocket with no coverage.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Supervisor in Coppell, Texas

    Offers an employee/child friendly package - not a employee/spouse/family friendly package. Can be a little pricy if you add your spouse.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former manager in Miami, Florida

    when i first started it was amazing. they offered great pay, merit increase annually up to 8%, 401k match and 3weeks of PTO. but since going public they froze salaries for 2 year, stopped 401k match and cut additional benefits.

    Mediocre health coverage; no 401k matching (currently). Great employee discount (40% off most products, 50% off elfa).
