    I worked at CB2 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount, fun environment, offers something for everyone in it's assortment, easy to sell products, great customer service.

    Cons

    Lots of part time & seasonal workers. They are not always dedicated to making the store run smoothly, need lots of training & attention/management. Store staff have little, if any relationship with co-workers outside their own store, lacks strong company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a few more full time folks who approach the job with a professional attitude & a better pay scale, living wage, would keep the great employees from looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    Incredible employee discount, and it's inspiring to be surrounded by beautiful products all day long.

    Cons

    Turnover for sales associates can be high, good people often leave after a few months to go to another job because they are looking for higher pay.

    Advice to Management

    At times it can feel like there is a disconnect in communication from corporate to the management teams at the store level. There should be a better flow of information, rather than sharing updates with the stores as an afterthought.

    Pros

    Great small up and coming brand supported by global parent companies. Merchandise that is modern, unique, and on trend. Employees are treated very well.

    Cons

    Salaries and compensation can be higher. Technology is mostly out of date. Company growth has slowed making upward promotions few and far between.

    Pros

    Overall a good place to work! Beautiful products. Good customers come in from all over the world. Great location in Soho

    Cons

    For the work you do, the pay is bad. You can't afford to be a part-time there and cover half of your bills.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the wage and offer more perks to your sales associates. They sell what you make.

    Pros

    Good place to earn a shared commission as it keeps us competitive but not at each other's throats for the next sale.

    Cons

    Employee atmosphere is much like high school some days. It is very clique based. The manager is also this way.

    I worked at CB2 full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful product and lovely sales and stock associate staff.

    Cons

    Senior management operate like a high school gang, bullying and demeaning staff. It can often be a tense and uncomfortable working environment.
    Fairly low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. You're running a low level home decor store. Have some fun WITH the rest of the staff, instead of conspiring to "take people out".
