    I have been working at Chico's FAS part-time

    Pros

    Great friendly yet professional work environment. Employee-friendly work hours (opens at 10 am, closes at 8 pm). The older clientele is friendly and spends holidays with family so employees get too as well.

    Cons

    Starts out at minimum wage (8.50) despite other local organizations starting out higher. Computer only allows management to schedule hours based off how much monthly sales goals have been met. Not being scheduled many hours so far despite exepecting more upon hire.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job. Just need slightly better pay and or more work hours offered to associates.

    I worked at Chico's FAS full-time

    Pros

    Great people and a great customer base. Lots of on-site benefits such as child care and a fitness center.

    Cons

    The company is long departed from its roots. There isn't a sense of belonging anymore and little connection to where the company came from. Today it is a business and that is reflected in many aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Understand where the company came from and don't just focus on the EPS

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

    Pros

    I work with a group of beautiful and amazing women. Chico's has beautiful clothing and jewelry to match.

    Cons

    Not enough pay raises and low pay. Sometimes management gets overwhelmed with returns, locates, and customer issues. Some associates need more time to learn the register and it's functions.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the associate through the necessary commands of the register and the day to day operations of the store. The manager should not leave the associate on her own until she says she is comfortable being left along.
