I worked at JoS. A. Bank part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

My store was very easy going. It was fun to learn about style and help others look good for some of their most important life moments. Customers were always very nice and the managers let you be independent once you got the training wheels taken off.

Cons

Completely unrealistic sales goals. I was there for several months and the entire time only two employees ever hit the goals and they barely hit them.

Advice to Management

Bring down the sales goals and your employees will try harder. There were several employees that were disenfranchised because they thought they would never make goal.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were great, and the store environment is above average for retail

    Cons

    Upper management never gives the impression that they care about their employees. I experienced 4 payroll errors in five weeks of work including never having received a paycheck

    Advice to Management

    I would offer it but I don't believe they really care

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of free time, Management is friendly and coworkers were good. Not a high pressure work environment.

    Cons

    The company is disorganized and does not seem to care about any of the employees below the store managers. Pay is not good and the commission is set up so it is very difficult to attain during an average week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with all the special events, revamp the commission system, and start using emails instead of faxing everything.
