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

Pros

you get a really good discount.
it is fun to work there at times
if you are manager you work by yourself a lot

Cons

you do not get a lot of hours. it really depends on the management of your store if you will like it or not. the dress code is bogus, you all have to wear the same color shirt. for example Monday for that week is pink everyone scheduled for Monday must wear pink. also you do not make enough money to go and buy all the stuff that is necessary to follow dress code

Advice to Management

being a manager myself at Claire's i would say stop hiring so many third keys. there is no reason to have four of them, nobody gets enough hours to make the job worth it.

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

    Pros

    The discount, can earn bonus if you make planned sales

    Cons

    working nights, weekends, and holidays. cattiness between other stores when you're supposed to be part of the same team

    Advice to Management

    Don't put so much emphasis on training of the key holders if the store manager will always be required to be there!

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

    Pros

    Making your own schedule is a great benefit. The benefits; insurance, 401k, vacation is all competitive.

    Cons

    All the blackout dates, besides the normal for the holiday season.
    The constant, it's never good enough.
    The lack of payroll. What a joke.
    After a store manager there really isn't any where to go.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the field. The payroll is no where near enough for all the tasks and taking care of out customers.
