No opinion of CEO

Pros

It was an extremely easy hiring process. I was hired on the spot with simply describing myself. The items there were cheap with a modest employee discount.

Cons

The hours given were horrible and the manager always remained in the backroom. I do not think my manager even remembered my team during the tenure I worked there.

Advice to Management

The leadership is horrible with my experience with the manager. She never seemed positive and always changed the appearance of the store for no reason.

    Pros

    Steve & Barry's District managers were all store managers at one time. The company believes in having experience at the DM level, but settled for a lack of experience at the Corp. executive level. Opportunity for advancement, wages, work/life balance is great compared to other retailers

    Cons

    Financial stability, Poor Communication from corp office, last minute planning for major events

    Advice to Management

    Start recruiting experienced Managers for the critical roles at Steve & Barry's; Implement cost controls at store level, and communicate company directives effectively.
