I worked at Coldwater Creek full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salary plus bonus. The benefits were great and a great value.

Cons

Very unstable company. Company has had wage freezes, taken bonuses away, no contribution to 401K. Have cut the number of employees on the management team. Lots of turnover. Not clear what the Coldwater Creek Brand represents? Who is their customer? I don't think they know....

Advice to Management

Be careful - stocks are valued under $1.00. Not a stable company.

    I worked at Coldwater Creek part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits: Health Care for full-time employee
    Employee discounts

    Cons

    Constant changes with promotions. Too much work for little progress
    More workload piles up and less hours to do them
    Upper management out of touch with store level concerns.
    Less hours for part-time employees. More and more turn-over because of lack of hours
    Poor quality merchandise. Almost all made in China.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your associates and in turn you will find out what they need to help your business succeed. Your top side is very heavy - know what happens when your top side is heaver than your bottom? Give people fair time-lines wot get projects done. You have people doing four jobs for the cost of one. In these times, do not take advantage of hard working women, They earn their wage and should be taken care of as loyal employees on the sales floor. Care more about your sales team instead of all your marketing signs bells and whistles to bring people in. Too many sales. As a finale note: Made in the USA would be a fine label. Made in the USA - sells in the USA.
