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

    Pros

    Ear piercing, although some families are difficult!
    Cute kids, most of the time!
    Always busy, never bored.
    Great vacation hrs

    Cons

    Overload of work
    Poorly paid regardless of past experiences! Third Keys are paid the worst & have a lot of responsibles, some being paid only a dollar more than sales associates!
    Under pressure to achieve every goal you are given, ep, ads, upt, sales, cashwrap, etc......
    Not always appreciated
    Micro managed
    On your own a lot without a break
    Inadequate hours to achieve tasks, visuals, markdowns etc.... Super woman is not real!!
    10 for 10, the worst! Customers are dumb, constantly repeating an explanation of promo!
    Customers complain about almost everything & will report you to Company of their 'bad' experience even though you were following policy!!

    Advice to Management

    Communication is the worst, DSM does not follow up with phone calls until a few days later!
    Managers 'run' to DSM with almost every problem, GROW UP!!

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

    Pros

    50% discount on merchandise. Great experience and was a great place to put on your resume. Got to be trendy and have my tattoos and nose piercing.

    Cons

    They do not give you enough work-task balance time, especially in a high volume store. They want you to be by yourself, check and start shipment, help customers, and pierce customers ears. Not enough pay for what you have to do in management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Managers!
