Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at JoS. A. Bank part-time

Pros

Yes policy to accommodate the customer. Great products and great reputation.

Cons

Starting pay very low you are told you can make commission. The sales are driven by discounting the merchandise so you cannot make commission. It is set up so you are stuck with the low rate of pay.

Advice to Management

Make the pay more fair by forget the commission at least in in the smaller stores where it is impossible to make commission.

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Option for the undereducated or people with no discernible skill set
    A viable option to make a little money going into the holidays
    Very easy to meet sales goals

    Cons

    Very low pay scale
    Hours, especially during the forth quarter, can be horrendous
    Regardless of location, schedule will be posted no more than two days in advance. Does not allow employees to make plans
    Vacation blackout periods
    Any position below store manager does not provide a livable wage
    Bottom of the barrel prices brings bottom of the barrel clientele

    Advice to Management

    I know you guys have to "play the game," but please don't tell us that selling one Signature Gold suit a day will put us above our sales goal when the company has never sold a suit at full price.
    Vacation blackout does not mean time off blackout and you know it. I have heard management tell associates otherwise. This crosses the line in regards to labor laws so tread carefully.
    Take it easy. It's just retail.
