I have been working at Calvin Klein (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun
Fast paced
Great discount
Good people
Nice customers
Helpful staff

Cons

The company is very cheap with money unless you are a general manager or higher. Assistant managers only make about $14.50 an hour which after taxes and insurance only works out to about $24k a year. No enough to make a living on.

Advice to Management

Be more willing to pay a little better.
Some of the store managers don't want to train or take their frustrations out on the staff with no reasoning.

    Pros

    -The associates are amazing, everyone is friendly and down to earth.
    -The discount is good, you get an additional 40% off everything including sale items.

    Cons

    - The managers behave like they want to be in the "mean girls" click
    - the customers are outrageously disrespectful and pretend to be high class when they're shopping in a discounted store.
    - there's no lunch room
    - there's no full time positions unless your a manager, however they'll make you work full time hours without any benefits
    - you basically do the managers work and get paid minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    "Mean girls" is just a movie, you'll never be one of them.
