    I worked at Kipling full-time

    Pros

    Great product which keeps on trend, some fantastic people, potential for a meaningful team experience. Good program for learning selling techniques. With a competent manager at the helm, this can be a pleasant, fun and motivating job.

    Cons

    Lots of politics in play. Employees get positions of responsibility based on who they know and not on their ability to do the job competently. This results in management by lazy employees with a weak work ethic. This has a detrimental effect on the team, who need focused, motivating leadership. Unequal division of labor among associates.

    Advice to Management

    Need for managers to have some formal training in managing a team of people effectively. Need for more defined areas of responsibility for the management positions. Some worked extremely hard, others leaned against the cash wrap counter most of the time!
