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

Pros

Great experience with my fellow associates and the clientele. Built great friendships in the friendly, up beat work environment.

Cons

The company has a lot of growing up to do and by that I mean you can definitely tell that they company is still trying to develop a corporate lifestyle. There are several gaps in the client experience and it can be difficult to provide excellent customer service. Horrible pay- a good portion of the pay is based of bonuses from sales, and that is great for sales associates because they can make more with Chico's than at another retailer, however its very hard to survive on the minimum dollar when you are a manager.

Advice to Management

Place you front line managers on salary- or at least give them the option to do so! We are getting the short end of the stick!

    I worked at Chico's FAS part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You learn how to sell well - the clothes are fun & interesting - face-paced as far as retail goes

    Cons

    If you're younger than 35 apply to another one of their businesses like White House Black Market - you'll enjoy the discount/working environment more
