Ann Taylor Factory Store – Tannersville, PA
Drives revenue and provides an exceptional client experience through relationship building, product knowledge sharing, and presenting a clean, safe… Snagajob
I have been working at Ann Taylor part-time (Less than a year)
One of the biggest pros of this position is the 50% off associate discount. It allows us to build our ann Taylor wardrobe and give honest opinions to our clients about the clothing they are purchasing. They also have a pretty good work-life balance.
The biggest downside of this position is the pressure to get client credit card applications. Associates and managers have quotas to meet. At my particular location we have a very good client base, which is good and bad. Good for sales, but bad for credit card applications because most of our shoppers already have the card. Too much emphasis on getting credit cards. Associates can't force clients to get credit cards, so success of the store shouldn't be measured by credit card applications.
Advice to Management
Management at my location is always very pleasant and helpful. While I was in training I asked tons of questions, and the management team never seemed to be bothered by it.
