    I have been working at Garage full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Bonus pay to managers and sales associates when goal is reached for the month. 50% off Clothing Promotes within company Offers to pay $300 for education Health insurance for full time employees

    Cons

    Company expects you to run around and do everything with only 2 people working. They care about profit and wage cost more than exhausting their employees. Very little pay for managers who run around and do everything. Minimum wage went up $2 in my county sales associates got a raise and management didn’t. Resulting in management only making $2 more than them vs $5-7 more for all our hard work. The district manager,...

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to talk to their employees and get rid of the cruel district managers that are in charge. If a survey was taken every employee would agree on how they are being treated.

    I worked at Garage part-time

    Pros

    pto, free clothes, loved my coworkers/managers, 50% discount

    Cons

    $9 an hour, extremely boring when no one comes in, company expects associates to make goals each day and it is hard to make the goals when the store is dry

    I have been working at Garage part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Bonuses and discount are great at 50%. Can’t use it on sale or outerwear. Having a great store makes the day more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Pay isn’t great and they are really hard on the employees. You have to meet unrealistic goals and there are a lot of rules and regulations that have to be followed. Don’t get a break unless you work over 6 hours which isn’t always easy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing rules and setting unrealistic expectations!!!

    Pros

    SM & DM’s are all so positive and motivating, they are there to support you and help you grow within

    Cons

    Working at the mall as a part time sales you don’t get a lot of hours but maybe that depends on who your manager is

    I worked at Garage part-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were amazing and discount was great

    Cons

    a lot of pressure to sell a certain amount each day and a lot of pressure to make certain amount of sales as individuals because had to help as many people as possible and gif they said your name at the register you got credit for it because there was a specific number you had to hit each shift but no one got paid commission.

    Advice to Management

    less stressful and cheaper your audience is young girls who are broke and bring $30 to the mall and don't want to spend it all on one shirt

    I worked at Garage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sadly can't think of much.

    Cons

    The company misrepresents both its financial health (red flags everywhere) and their willingness to support the growth and promotion of employees. Promises are made and not kept. The sales goals are individualized and come with warnings about job security if you don't meet the goals. The clothing style and quality has changed and the consumer is not happy so this makes it difficult to sell. The individual goals also...

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to reevaluate thE individual sales goal approach asap and look for ways to team build... If the company truly expects to grow then they also need to put together a comprehensive succession plan and help their employees grow with them.
