    Pros

    Salary, benefits, close to home. Hours of operation in the location is situated. Peers, staff that you work with. Customer loyalty.

    Cons

    Limited management abilities (constantly being micro-managed), no growth opportunities. Upper management extremely disrespectful in the way of communication to management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Let managers be managers that's why they're there for.

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

    Pros

    Customers of Chicos are high dollar spenders and usually polite and pleasant. They are some of the best retail shoppers to work with. The company is very engaged with the clientel.

    Cons

    The pay is much lower than competitors. They do not offer benefits to part time employees, and Sales Leads do not get to share in monthly managerial bonuses, even though you serve in a management capacity.

    Pros

    The other employees in the stores. Quality merchandise that you feel good about selling.

    The discount for employees is not as good as most sales. Employees are not usually allowed to buy at the sale prices.

    Better employee discount or higher wages.

    Pros

    Generally pleasant atmosphere, nice managers and co-workers. Most customers are lovely ladies. I love the merchandise and appreciate the employee discount.

    Cons

    As a part-timer, you may be very busy sometimes, then not work, or work very little, for entire weeks. Wages are low, unless you can have large sales.

    Advice to Management

    Increase wages and predictability for your workers in order to avoid turnover. Relieve some of the pressure to sell - nobody makes their sales goals on a Monday night when there are severe weather warnings, for instance....

    Pros

    It was great to see the repeat customers coming in. I made many friends. Chico's is great about sending out emails and catalogs with discounts to keep the customers coming back.

    Cons

    The register system was a little difficult to learn.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be an easier register system that doesn't require you to remember so many things.
