I have been working at Charming Shoppes full-time (More than 5 years)
Friendly people and clients upper managment is very pro employee. They have brought people in fo the I.T. dept. to help build resumes and also brought in the unemployment office to help us out.
Charming Shoppes was bought out by Ascena Reatail group they offered me a Job in Columbus Ohio that I had to turn down.
Advice to Management
Keep treating the employees they you are.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Charming Shoppes.
Interviews varied based on department but most were done by hiring manager first, and then directors or VPs. For our department, prior experience was key. Public Accounting experience was a plus but not 100% required.
