    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.

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

    Pros

    Getting to experience a kids first ear piercing!! I genuinely miss this part.

    And my co-workers

    And my returning customers

    Cons

    The company it's self. Work alone most of the time for long shifts. Understaffed so you share employees with other stores which seems nice but no one wants to take shifts. And you are forced to work a full shift of no one else comes in even if you have rashes on your face or pink eye. The training in nonexistent and you have to take a 30-45min test to be even a part time manager at $9.25hr for like 12hrs of work.

    Please don't work for this company.

    A lot of this 5 star ratings are done by DMs and SMS they recruit to do it to fix the star ratting. My DM told me.

    Advice to Management

    None.
