I worked at Guess? full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

In general, every year, there seems to be strides to improve overall work experiences within departments.

Cons

With the industry comes politics and often image gets in the way of true talent able to drive successful businesses.

Advice to Management

Lead by example. A great leader doesn't need to lead by fear or negativity. It's not not inspirational for growth.

    I worked at Guess? part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The great thing about working there was the discount. You can use it at G, Guess, Marciano, Guess Kids, and Factory. Flexible hours. You can listen to music all day and meet great people. The best thing is the employee bonus days: 50% off anything. Includes red marked down items.

    Cons

    You don't get paid anything at all. Just minimum wage. No matter how long you've been with the company..... you may even see a 10 cent raise during your time there. There's really no room for moving up the career ladder if you live in a city other than the headquarters. Requires you to work hours on holidays...You have to meet daily and weekly sales goals so it can get mighty competitive and ugly on the sales floor. This is how you get your hours. By the way you don't even get commission. They require you to wear G By Guess clothes to work and dont really like it if you wear the other brands. The G clothes are very poor quality, expensive and ill-fitting. If you are a high schooler the clothes may be suited for you, but not young adults. Very tacky and bedazzled. Managers show favoritism to employees that sell the most. Overall, its a headache. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees with more respect. After all they are the driving force to bring in the all the money to keep your job and meet all the monthly, quarterly and yearly goals. They do a lot of work to not even be paid that much.
