I have been working at Chico's FAS full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great work environment. No dress code. Flexible Schedule. Excellent for a 2nd job.

Cons

Employees' skills and abilities are not valued. You are treated like you are easily replaceable. Pay is way below average. Promotions and recognition is based on friendships rather than skills and abilities. No defined standard operating procedures; everything is subjective and you get a different answer every time when you ask how to do something.

Advice to Management

Be upfront and honest with your employees. Don't feed them BS to make them go away when they present you with a real and valid problem.

    "Ok. Lots of pressure to sell, hard to establish a customer base, store layout changes constantly."

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

    Pros

    Pleasant-looking, safe work environment, good hours. However, the layout of the store changes every few days so it's hard to get a handle on where things are, especially if you only work part-time.

    Cons

    It's difficult to establish your own customer base if you're new and all repeat customers have been "claimed." The recordkeeping/payroll/cash register/training computer software was very glitchy and outdated. Must clean the store if you're on the closing shift.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the store layout every couple of days!!!!!!!Upgrade your software/cash register so it's more intuitive and more reliable. Hire a company to do the vacuuming, dusting, garbage, etc rather than making nicely dressed employees do it.

    Pros

    Great pay (hourly rate + commission) the harder you work, the more you get
    Good hours
    Fairly flexible

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations from corporate
    Can be a hostile work environment due to competitive nature

    Advice to Management

    I absolutely loved my direct manager. It was the upper levels in the company that I had an issue with.
