    I worked at Coldwater Creek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employee discounts on clothing were nice to have. Enjoyed the environment and clientele. Enjoyed working on floor sets and teamwork.

    Cons

    The company requires you to purchase the new clothing lines each season, which was still extremely costly even with a discount.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management needed to stop the ridiculous surprise visits and be there to support the staff instead of nitpick every detail. As a company, they grossly overspent on new props for floor sets. It would have been nice to see that $$ go towards the employees for their hard work.
