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

Pros

Loved the customers and the clothes.

Cons

Horrible management, very stressfully pushy commissioned sales environment, unskilled store manager, pay is poor and whole attitude of upper management is terrible. I work at a competitor now with two other X Chico's employees and am much happier!

Advice to Management

Your commission based so called the "customer is everything" system sucks! My manger would literally steal sales from me right on the sales floor right in front of customers and cause animosity and fights on the sales floor. I have been in retail my entire life and have never worked in such a horrible environment.

    I have been working at Chico's FAS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Making women feel good about themselves.

    Cons

    Sometimes the expectations at the store level are unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the differences between Chicos locations. Not all clientele are the same and they are determined by the store locations. Thus not all stores will share the same successes and each should be viewed individually.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed all of the training I got, my manager spent a lot of time developing my skills and really pushed me to grow. Enjoyed the different management styles and was always busy with new tasks - selling, stocking, calling customers, etc. I liked working part-time, the job had a lot of flexibility while I was still in school.

    Cons

    Working with all women could get catty, so there was the occasional issue there. There could be a lot of pressure from certain managers to sell regardless of if the person needed it/wanted it/could afford it.
