I worked at Claire's Stores full-time

Pros

50% discount, good benefits program
ear piercing

Cons

ridiculous amount of tasking without the payroll to staff the store properly
goals of 23% sales increases in a 3% economy, no possibility for earning the bonus' they waved at you when hiring
working alone without breaks for 8 hour shifts
dm and rm not interested in any issues you might have, just ads, upt and cwr
being told to enforce company policies, except when those policies might benefit the employee

Advice to Management

set goals that are actually in tune with the economy
listen to your employees, dont tell them they can only call you if it's "important"

    Learning to pierce ears, 50% discount

    Whiny kids all day long, and jewelry getting tangled up everywhere. Upper management will fire a whole store if 1 person is stealing

    Actually spend time hearing your employees concerns and investigate loss in store before firing everyone
