    Pros

    good employee discount
    nice manager
    nice clothing, clean store

    Cons

    minimum wage.
    The long time employees "park" themselves at the cash register and ring in all the sales under their names so you will have zero sales for the day. In fact they were quite mean spirited and taunted the new employees. Awful experience actually. No one should be treated like this !
    When the manager turned around or went in the back office, they would harass the new people.

    Advice to Management

    Be on hand to watch what is happening ! Give someone new a chance to succeed.
    Those mission statements do not mean anything if you allow someone new to be bullied.

    "Assistant Manager"

    I have been working at CLeo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It has been great working at Cleo. I started working here 3 weeks ago and the Cleo experience has been great. I would recommend this company to everyone. The assistant manager's position comes with a lot of responsibility. Most importantly "visual setup" of the store is key. You have to do a flip of the store every 3 weeks or so. But overall the experience so far has been great. I would love to grow with this company as time goes by.

    Cons

    - less people working
    - visual setup requires a lot of work so i suggest that there should be enough people to do it

    Advice to Management

    More people should be hired! There arn't enough people working at one store.

    The culture is mostly positive and my buying coworkers were great

    Cons

    -ZERO opportunities for growth
    -very poor pay and no raises

    Employees who are given opportunities and are encouraged, motivated, promoted and developed will stay.

  8. "Not much good for me"

    I have been working at CLeo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good employee discount, a few good coworkers

    Cons

    Nice clothes, but seem really expensive. Sales are ALWAYS happening (probably good, otherwise I don't think a lot of people would shop there). My specific store doesn't seem to have much of a team atmosphere. Feels really cliquey. I'm a cashier and somehow expected to sell at least a couple hundred of clothing. Unsure how when I'm constantly behind the cash desk.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees for reasons other than doling out work. Encourage a team atmosphere. Yes, I get that sales are a huge thing, but so is employee morale. If that goes down, drive to sell goes down.
