    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Catherine's Plus Sizes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employee discounts and ace rewards to buy gift cards for clothing

    Cons

    Training and management was horrible...no support and follow up with district leader

    Advice to Management

    Follow a training guide and checklist. Regionals should have more checks and balance with district leaders to ensure they are in stores and not the same stores.

    Advice to corporate: Listen to people who are in the field. Get feedback from Store Managers because they know what is really going on in the stores, with sales and customers. If you want to get and retain good people, raise your pay!

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Lenexa, KS
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Catherine's Plus Sizes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They will hire anyone with or without experience. You can get a full time position with little experience and knowledge. The customer suffers but costs are kept low because they don't pay to get good, experienced mgmt staff.

    Cons

    The district mgmt and above is riddled with incompetent staff. The mgrs, assist mgrs and sales leads are work horses for the districts. The pay is consistently low across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Implement exit interviews to gather info on why mgrs don't last long in your districts.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Catherine's Plus Sizes for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Not much! Nice clothes. Most customers are very nice. I did enjoy helping the ladies feel beautiful.

    Cons

    No payroll, high demands, company makes me feel worthless. Company computer systems constantly broken and it makes it very difficult to do your job. Company doesn't want to invest any money back into their stores.
