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

    Pros

    Joking around with employees about the way we were treated by the company and some of the customers was the only thing enjoyable about working here.

    Cons

    Almost no commissions received because they are very difficult to attain except during the holiday season. You have to sell a lot of merchandise before you get any commission.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees and give them 3% commission on sales. Employees have plenty of work to do for their $8-$9 an hour. Where is the incentive to sell when you make no commission at all more than half the time?

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

    Pros

    I learned a little bit about Microsoft Excel. Free sodas in the corporate offices. The offices support Purple Fridays so you can wear jeans on those days.

    Cons

    Management is almost aggressively unfunny. When I was there, there were 14 people in my department and only 4 had been there more than one year -- employee retention is terrible because the work is menial. During the interviews they promise that the first 6 months of the training would be data entry and then you could move on to better things, but even my manager (who had been there for 6 years) was still primarily doing data entry type work.

    It was a trainee position and I sat with my manager for about 2 days before I was told to just do it on my own.

    Terrible culture -- never felt welcomed one single day

    Advice to Management

    I don't think advice from me will make anything better. You can do a simple google search of Jos. A. Bank business prospects to see they're going downhill fast.
