    I have been working at Chico's FAS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting place to work. Love assisting with any task. Love the customer base. Really enjoy seeing and being a part of such a fun Company!

    Cons

    Technology needs to be improved. Cash registers go down and some of our busiest time. Fortunately our customers simply keep shopping and don't seem to be annoyed by this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep creating a great work environment for your employees and in turn the employees will continue to do a fabulous job for our customers. Team work makes the dream work!

    Pros

    This company is a wonderful retail company to work for. They really do care for their people. They work hard at giving the store team tools to help with not only the in store customer experience, but also the experience for the online shoppers. They recognize top talent and achievements and truly make it the most amazing place to work and shop.

    Cons

    Retail hours but that comes with the territory.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to help support the team at the store and keep the great product coming!

    Pros

    Great culture! This company is truly focused on employee development and growth in all aspects. There's also a strong focus on philanthropy and giving back to the community which means a lot to me. I love working for a company that is so focused on making a positive impact. The culture is one of a kind. There is no such thing as hierarchy here. Servant leadership is a top priority at Chico's FAS and it shows, starting at the executive level. The benefits are amazing and the on campus amenities are extensive. Dry cleaning service, 24 hour fitness center, cafes across campus, weekly farmers market, car washing service, etc. Not to mention the campus is minutes away from the beach! Best job I've ever had.

    Cons

    On Friday's in the summer months we have half days - it would be great if these lasted throughout the month of August instead of ending the first week of August.

    I worked at Chico's FAS part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    fun place to work, loved the clothes and people I worked with

    Cons

    low pay, hours suck, no set schedule even though there could be, upper management will not allow it. Also to many rules on what we had to wear meaning too many accessories.

    Advice to Management

    Let scheduling managers set specific days for crew so turnover is less. Very hard to work around a part time work schedule when it changes every single week.
