    I have been working at Cirilla's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My manager recognizes and appreciates my hard work. The products and the people are wonderful to work with. After being with the company for only a few months, this part time job has turned in to an aspiring career. I've witnessed how Cirilla's promotes from within based off hard work and it encourages me to work harder to achieve my new found career goals. The managers are supportive. The company acknowledges hard work. The products are fun to learn about and to sell. There's a satisfaction in helping customers find products that best suits their needs.

    Cons

    As with all retail stores, there's shoplifting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being wonderful and promoting your hard working employees. Supportive area managers creative motivated store managers that create helpful and outgoing employees.

    Love the atmosphere, co-workers are great, awesome discounts, spiffs for certain sale items, dress code is very fair, easy work, great part-time job for anyone going to college, looking for a second job, etc. Highly recommend 🤗

    You get paid on certain days of the month, customers may harass you (but that can happen at any job), you work alone which can be boring at times.

    I worked at Cirilla's part-time (Less than a year)

    -Makes you more outgoing and comfortable talking to people
    -I enjoy helping folks improve their sex lives

    Cons

    -Absolutely awful management

    -Management has absolutely NO concern for your safety or comfort
    -No room for advancement
    -They will cut your hours with absolutely zero notice
    - Management doesn't care about you
    -The turnover rate is insanely high, I worked here for nine months and in that time I had four different managers and countless different coworkers
    -High stress work environment, almost constant harassment from male customers, also a ridiculous amount of harassment from male coworkers
    -I was verbally sexually harassed by a coworker and I was punished for reporting it to management

    Advice to Management

    -You need to have a more intensive hiring process for clerks and especially for managers
    -AGMs need to make themselves more aware of what's going on in store
    -You need to care about the comfort and safety of your employees

    Pros

    The social aspect and atmosphere keep me coming to work every day! The environment is exactly what I want in a job, but the pay is terrible.

    I do way more work for this place than I get paid for. I love the job, but feel like I deserve more.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and they will probably stay!!

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

    Pros

    Hours aren't excessive, part-time only (good if you're in college), little bit of compensation for specific products (made for fun competition with coworkers), 30% discount on anything but surprise bags, little "sweaty" work, wear what you want as long as its business casual.

    Cons

    No security, working alone past midnight, high theft, unsavory customers, constant sexual harassment, customers will whine and stomp their feet if you enforce policies over half the time, working with used returns (with gloves), required to call management for each and every return/exchange (rough when they aren't answering and the customer gets impatient with you), bare minimum pay, no raises, sales are always struggling (you will get yelled at for this no matter how well you're doing), had to call the police weekly, underappreciated, high turn over rate (frustrating when your schedule gets crazy because there's only two clerks), no weapons are allowed to protect yourself, slow season is like half the year, customers expect your undivided attention when there is multiple of them, most of the phone calls are prank or nasty people looking for dirty talk, have to take trips or do tasks in the backroom at night, constantly (I mean CONSTANTLY) getting called in or having your schedule change, no breaks, occasional exhibitionists... I could go on forever.

    Advice to Management

    Start giving a crap about your employee's safety and sanity. Doesn't look very good on the company when the nightmare-inducing news stories go up. Appreciate what we the hard work we do and the life that's being risked for peanuts per hour. SECURITY. SECURITY. SECURITY.
