I have been working at Ann Taylor full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great about giving back to the community. The managers are given leverage to award team when they go above and beyond. Really about work life balance.

Cons

Better integrated technology systems- email capture , access to .com on front of house pc's
Could really try to pay part employees more that have the experience in all locations.
No mentorship programs for people who want to advance in the company.

Advice to Management

Need better technology integration with email capture poping up automatically so the customer is not bothered every time they are in. Nordstrom, apple and a few other companies have these systems.
Better wording with coupons and return policy.
Really listen to customer feedback on clothing, shoes ect.

    Pros

    Management is SUPERB. Each manager has a hard-to-get balance of being a friend while maintaining respect as a manager. They're very considerate about my scheduling. The sales associates are friendly & there is NO GOSSIP! Almost all of my coworkers are positive - if I go to work feeling awful, I'm in a totally different mood after starting work. This is a place where everyone is on the same team, everyone supports each other, & we all want each other to be the best at what she does; where you can grow as an individual; where you feel like your work is actually important & making a big difference, even if you're merely sweeping the floor. Although I work hard, I feel like I'm getting paid to have fun! It's a highly professional, organized, systematic company that somehow maintains a warm, down-to-earth feel. The discounts are generous too. Oh, & we don't work for commission, which encourages the great teamwork we have. The longer I work here, the more I love this job!

    Cons

    The pay isn't great for my location (Hawaii), but it's better than my other job that pays $7.25/hr & isn't even in the same ballpark for being rewarding, fun, professional, etc. They only offer full-time for management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Printing the schedule earlier in advance would be very helpful.
