Pros

Great product and respectable income earning potential.

Cons

Floating holidays are not family holidays. Holiday hours are long and brutal. More often than not we are understaffed.

    Pros

    If you commit to provide your best work ethic, you will be recognized by the store manager for great performance and acknowledge to the district manager as well.

    Cons

    The downside is the competitiveness among the staff to assisting customers so they can earn commission. When it comes to how much commission was earned at the end of the day, employees begin to complain that other employees are stealing customers away from themm.

    Advice to Management

    I highly suggest that a more organized system in regulating the employee-to-customer ratio. Ideally, it would best to have all the employees have equal number of customers to help but obviously some employees are better salespersons than others and having them have more customers make sense from a company's profit perspective. I just think some sort of measure should be introduced to minimize the employee confrontations in stealing customers away as their reason for not receiving enough commission.


  2. "Good to start out with but not much of a future."

    Pros

    Good learning experience for sales, menswear. Store management seemed generally competent and interested in employees. For someone starting out in sales or interested in a career in menswear, it's better than nothing and there are skills you will pick up.

    Cons

    Poor compensation, micromanaged commission structure, lack of flexibility, confusing promotions. The long-term sales staff seemed dispirited and depressed. Because of the "draw" on commissions you will not make money at this job unless the store has high traffic or high sales, which some of them don't.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the constant sales and promotional marketing, it confuses the staff and customer alike, plus creates additional work at the same time it tarnishes the brand image.
