    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Claire's Stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Will hire you as a keyholder as long as you have previous retail experience, 50% discount on everything. Counts as management experience so you can go elsewhere after a bit.

    Cons

    Too much expected of one person. Expect to act like an assistant manager but get paid like an associate. I was paid $8.25/hour as a keyholder here, and at the same time was being paid $8.50/hour by Urban Outfitters as a sales associate. I worked alone 98% of the time, and I would do everything from shipment to inventory to sales to planograms etc. And if I didn't get something done in one day, my manager would be there breathing down my neck...but doing all that as 1 person is hard, especially if you are working a full 8 hour day without a break.

    Advice to Management

    Make expectations clear, give higher pay for the work that is done, give praise for all the hard work that is put in. Allow more payroll hours so there is decent coverage.

    I worked at Claire's Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount
    Ear piercing was actually fun
    Ability to connect more with coworkers since it's a smaller space/store

    Cons

    Schedule and hours would change every week and sometimes in the same week
    No flexibility - It may depend on your location but my manager(s) were not willing to work with my schedule at all
    Low pay for all of the tasks that you have accomplish on a daily
    Too many tasks given to achieve the high level of sales goals given each day
    Can be really stressful at times
