Pros

This company is very laid back. It is a fairly small, hometown-like retailer. The customer service experience is rewarding and helpful.

Cons

Compared to other jobs that I have had, the pay is quite low. Raises are quite rare. I know other larger retailers pay better.

    Pros

    There are incentives to doing your job well. Employees with high numbers in charge card approvals are rewarded monetarily and may earn other recognition within the company. If you do well within the company, you may be promoted due to their desire to promote from within. The employee discounts and vacation time is competitive to other companies in their field, as well as the pay rate.

    Cons

    As with most retail work, some nights and weekends are required. It is preferred that you do not ask for time off around major holidays/special promotions, especially if you are in a management position. You must be a motivated multi-tasker, there are many more tasks to accomplish in addition to ringing sales, which may overwhelm some associates.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed my experience working with Peebles. My only advice would be to have more definite lines drawn between the various management positions. In my experience, the department managers and assistant managers shared the same tasks and responsibilities but for lesser pay and a lesser title. I believe that this could cause unnecessary friction in some situations. I do realize that this system is in place to prepare the department managers for future promotions and appreciate that you promote from within and have a great management training program in place.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - you do get a nice employee discount
    -I f you like only getting a few hours a week, then this would be the perfect job for you

    Cons

    -policies are always changing and you probably won't be told about it until weeks later.
    -Management pushes you to get new charges and magazine orders every time you work

    Advice to Management

    -Because we may one work a few times a week, you need to update us more on changes and current promotions when we start.(its suppose to happen but never does)
