    I have been working at Coldwater Creek part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The co-workers are great to work with. It is a very relaxed and friendly place to work. The manager is great and really friendly.

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides. I think it would depend on what specific branch you work at, and who the manager is, but this is a great part-time and/or seasonal opportunity.

    "They expect too much of their employees/managers."

    I worked at Coldwater Creek full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good. My coworkers are nice. They finally took away double discounts.

    Cons

    We are expected to do too much work. We are rated on customer surveys, rewards cards, personal shopper appointments, emails and credit cards, among other things. The merchandise has gotten too expensive, even with our 40% discount. We don't get raises. Performance reviews don't really matter (just going through the motions).

    Advice to Management

    Please have a return policy. You would make more money by not letting people return old, worn clothes without any receipt. You need to be more in touch with what is going on in the stores. You spend too much labor on the visual aspects of the store. Yes, the stores look amazing, but people want better prices/quality on the clothing.
