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

Pros

1) Good discount on clothing.

Cons

1) The compensation is low compared to other clothing retailers, and getting lower. For example, a couple years ago, an Asst. Mgr. earned $15/hr.; now one earns $12/hr., and now a Dept. Mgr./Keyholder earns $11/hr.

2) Also, there aren't fair rules for advancement. For example, each District Manager often hires friends/family from outside the company to fill management openings.

Advice to Management

Pay your top-selling employees better, or they will leave.

    Pros

    The customers are very interesting. If you are really good with your customer service skills and know what management allows you to do for them, you can handle any issue and keep the customer happy!

    Cons

    Too much flipping of schedule. Company has little to NO incentives for employees. Good days are often forgotten the very next day if an Associate happens to have a low-sales day... Not good to keep an Associate geared up to do better.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be open-minded to employee suggestions regarding better representation of store in order to satisfy customers FIRST and then Regional second. This statement is based on comments as well as personal interaction with customers. There is NOT enough team spirit to rally for a good day, no encouragement. Too many faxes stating how bad a store is doing (beat down)... IT'S NOT ALWAYS THE SALES ASSOCIATES CAUSING THE LOW SALES - THEY SHOULD FIND OUT FROM EACH STORE ON THAT DAY WHAT THE ISSUE MAY BE. This type of message relay doesn't make the Associates feel any better, especially when they are doing their best!!!!!

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

    Pros

    Great discount on quality merchandise. It is rewarding to sell quality and value to customers.

    Cons

    Brutal hours and difficult to get quality employees because of low income available when working for commission in low volume store.

    Advice to Management

    Change pay structure for low column stores and forget extended hours in small markets.
