Pros

Fantastic Discount
Store and District Managers are fantastic.
Work well with you to balance family and work.

Cons

No benefits for part timers(and I mean NONE!)
Raises are very hard to come by
If all you want to do all day is try to force people to buy clothes-this is your place.

Advice to Management

Christopher and Banks has really seemed to have lost it's way-they are still trying to sell to the baby boomers who are retiring and not buying clothes anymore-they need to start trying to appeal to the mid 30"s to 50"s group-the people who are still working and actively purchasing clothes.They are really stuck in a rut with trying to appeal to 70 and 80 year olds on fixed income-need to re-think there whole strategy or they are going to fail-sales continue to slide.The answer is NOT to take away benefits, pay low salaries, eliminate full time people and pressure selling!!Get some decent and dedicated workers in your stores and let people shop without a sales clerk following them around or trying to force them to join a loyalty program when they do not want to-POOR POOR customer service!!!
