    I worked at Theory full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the clothing allowance. Coworkers where great not very catty like retail can be. We worked as a team to assist in making personal and store goals.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Very high turnover and stores where never properly staffed. Corporate and district managers really need to look at getting the bad store managers out. Also very little room for movement with in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at who you are placing in charge at the store level and district level

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Theory in March 2017.

    Interview

    Basic phone interview, typical questions. The woman was not particularly engaging and seemed pretty uninterested in anything I had to say. She asked a lot about my interest in fashion and my interest in Theory.
