    I have been working at Claire's Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good and the bonuses are nice as long as you are in a store that performs well. Having paid time off and 401k really helped me to grow as a person and become a more professional individual.

    Cons

    The work load can be a lot to handle for those who are unorganized. If you dont know how to talk to people and interact in a professional manner dont apply.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you show that you value lower level employees. I had a money dispute with upper management that never was resolved and they denied me backpay that was rightfully mine. Beware make sure you have your own records of money that you should be payed.
