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

Pros

If you like retail, want building a customer base and push hard for sales you can have a strong future at Jos. A. Bank.

Cons

Time off translates to lost sales. Expect long days and a quite irregular schedule. Work/Life balance is skewed towards work. Typical with most retailers is the press for customers personal information. Name. Address, phone number, e-mail, all used to JAB's advantage - especially "courtesy" phone calls. Also have to mention a laborious tuxedo rental program that most Sales Executives fail to fully understand leaving to many rental customers dealiing with frustration.

Advice to Management

Deal with work/life balance. Teach Sr. Management to respect the store associates - give them true support in developing sales and maintaining an A+ customer experience. Beat down and beat up isn't right approach when sales are declining - especially in difficult economic times.

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Beats staying home, but not by much.

    Cons

    Having worked for the company full and part time for a long time, I have known there WAS no better mens' clothing outfit to represent. We looked forward to coming to the store almost every day because the management appreciated your efforts. Sadly, that is not the case now.

    Advice to Management

    Pne calls ? That's a joke. Does upper management really think those daily reported calls are actually made ? If you are busy doing stock, code 5s, cleaning the store, taking care of customers, etc. they need to get a life. Opening at 8AM and closing at 10 or 11PM ? Get real.
