I have been working at Claire's Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- tolerable if this is your 2nd job
- not that stressful if you have an understanding and flexible manager
- not that strict when you need bathroom breaks often or go get a drink or something . .

Cons

- unrealistic deadlines/goals (markdowns, planograms, CNN's, promo recaps, cw's, ads, upt)
- you'll get in trouble and the possibility of getting a write up when you call-in-sick
- very, very low pay - - and I mean almost minimum wage (management)
- appraisal review is a JOKE! $.09 increase for a year! -- are you kidding me?!

Advice to Management

Please, please know how a store runs from the inside; I mean everyday situations like :
- MD's for 4 days on top of superb Customer Service
- Planograms - make an exact floorplan for each store!
- DM visits - pls visit when there's no planogram changes!! omg! all the time they visit, it is always, always on plano season! is it just me or what?

    I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun at times, REALLY great discount.

    Cons

    RECOVERY SUCKS!! and you have to deal with everyone's BS 50% of the time. The company gets you in trouble for not making good sales when its not really your fault or theres nothing you can do about it.


  2. "Not the best place to work at if you wanr a good amount of hours and decent pay."

    Pros

    people you work with are pretty nice.

    Cons

    every man for themselves. team work doesnt exist. the pay is pretty much chump change. they hire like 8 people and everyone besides the store manager and assist manager get like 12hrs a week. worst place to work PERIOD.

    Advice to Management

    STOP HIRING SO MANY PEOPLE IF YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH HOURS TO GO AROUND. YOU NEED TO PAY MORE IF YOU WANT MORE. STOP BEING SO CHEAP!!!
