    I have been working at Ann Taylor part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. Discounts are great. Opportunity to move to a sales lead from associate

    Cons

    Managment sets only set amount of hours when on a busy day and we are short on staff. When discounting clothes for a promotion it changes to frequently. When we are short staff, it can be very tedious. There are business processes to make more efficient. Store policies don't make sense. No creativity to choose to do the marketing for mannequins.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees. They need to be heard and provide them more hours.
