    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

    Some of the customers were great. Some coworkers were wonderful. Opportunity to move up

    Cons

    The company in general is just antiquated. POS need updating. DMs only work m-f. I had an incident on a holiday and was told to deal with it. Two employees got into an argument and one pushed the other. Bonus structure is a joke.

    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.

    Pros

    Nice women shop here and you become friends.

    Cons

    Short breaks, if you get one. Usually have 2 people scheduled each shift so it’s hard to spend time with customers because you have little coverage. Lots of complaints of quality of clothing. So many returns!!!
