    I have been working at Destination Maternity full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with the clients in store is the best!! Loved helping expecting moms and sharing in their pregnancy.

    Cons

    Unfortunately after the client experience, the perks stop there!! This is not an organization that values it's people and wants to recognize the great talent they have in the field.

    1. The pressure to make your sales goals is for lack of a better term....INTENSE. As long as you produce, then you are great. As soon as you start to fall below an expectation of any KPI, then you are out and expect to be written up for poor performance.

    2. Not a company that will promote from within to fill upper positions!! Almost all positions at manager or above are filled externally. Don't expect to grow here.

    3. As a manager you are responsible for developing talent when you have at most 15-30 minutes of overlap in schedules due to the fact you work on single coverage and stores can run on as little as 85 hours per week. That does not support an environment that encourages teaching and training of its team members, however all associates open/close the store because of single coverage. Company needs to INVEST in its team and give you more than 15 hours of training before expecting a sales associate to run your business for you and function as a manager opening/closing stores for minimum pay!

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on the morale in stores and the internal customer experience. Company talks about growth opportunities, but actions of senior management do not support this claim.
    Rethink your training programs and support your teams in the stores with better and more training.
    Balance workload in stores to the payroll you operate with!!! One person on the sales floor can only accomplish so much!! People who are making decisions on payroll in stores should actually go give a store team a week off work, then run a store with the little/inconsistent communication stores receive and complete Floorset, consolidations, promotions, and also sell to clients and get all done on single coverage.
