    I worked at Frederick's of Hollywood full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours available for those who want them, average pay rates. You get to build a nice relationship with your staff and co-workers.

    Cons

    Corporate has no sense of the market needs, pay is not competitive at all, part-time and lower level employees are often left to handle more than their share due to huge turnover rates. They prefer to hire from outside than promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Frederick's is in desperate need of a current and young voice in the company who has worked in lingerie. Hiring people who so fragrance, ready to wear or hair isn't helping.

    Pros

    Every time a promotion occur the staff was able to receive merchandise as samples.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't all that great. As an As an Assistant Manager I believe I should have been paid more. Unfortunately when I requested a raise after probation period I was denied; I was then told that the company had put a freeze on raises. Which was the reason I left after 8 months.

    Pros

    A passion for the product and the customers made this my favorite job ever. I had fun everyday at work and I got to be creative in my visual merchandising.

    Mismanagement of the company led to a decline in performance causing the company to file for bankruptcy but everything at the store level was nothing but awesome.

    Pros

    my store manager and assistant managers were all amazing. i felt so lucky to be in a company who valued their employees, lead us instead of bossing us around, and just an overall positive environment to be. shout out to our store manager at the lakewood store, lilian. of just my mere 3 ish years of working retail, she has been the best and will always be in my opinion. that store had a great team of employees that had the potential to invest in the improvement of the company, but corporate was whack and unprecedented with the status of any of the stores. we received the same shipment, many of the same styles that weren't selling. like, duh, why perpetually restock the items that don't sell. the styles were outdated. the merchandise was overpriced for the quality. i get better quality panties at forever21.

    pros: my coworkers, managers, discount, not too fast paced

    Cons

    corporate and the morons running it.

    Advice to Management

    to corporate: always know that if you take care of your employees, they will take care of your business. obviously you failed at that.

    I worked at Frederick's of Hollywood full-time

    Pros

    I worked with great people. It was a fun environment. They had a fantastic employee discount and were willing to work with you if you wanted to grow within the company.

    Cons

    For most positions they underpay. Many stores were closing. They didn't know how to keep up with current trends. No product development team and the buyers were awful.

    Advice to Management

    Get up to date merchandise. The same product season after season after season in just different colors is not good business strategy.
