    Pros

    You get 50% off with the employee discount which is pretty awesome, and the company does have really great giveaways to win for the employees.

    Cons

    The company makes you do an additional and unnecessary work for things that can be done quicker and easier. They have very unrealistic sales goals considering most people shop online nowadays. This may be different from other stores but management is petty, childish, unorganized, and there is a lot of favoritism. Sales associates are constantly told they are not doing enough and management wonders why people constantly...

    Advice to Management

    Just throw the whole team away and start over. Stop talking about one another and start talking TO one another to improve sales and communication within the team.

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

    Pros

    The employee discount is awesome especially if you actually like the clothing! Now that the dress code has changed and you are able to wear any Garage product. I also felt that the training videos were informative. The pay is decent and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Company doesn't really want you to grow in your role or use any of your management skills. You're very constrained in what you can do. The brand is less known in the states, so the stores make very little money and you're often bored. My DM was also the most abrasive, harsh, un-enjoyable human that I think I have ever met. My coworkers were mostly unmotivated and weren't given the proper tools to care about their jobs...

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

    Pros

    This was my first retail job and I loved it here. I was looking for a summer job and I just happened to walk in since the website to apply in-store. I asked the manager if they were hiring and she said she was going to ask me if I wanted to work there. So I filled out the application turned it in and the next day I had a interview and by the end of the week I had a job. This job was a great to getting me into the door...

    Cons

    Training was probably the most boring part of the job. I felt as thought the pay wasn't good enough for all that they expected us too do. Sometimes the managers would get upset and pushy if the store wasn't doing good on sales which was frustrating because we cant make people buy stuff they don't want no matter how good you sell it. Other than those cons it was a great job.

    Pros

    The employee discount is great.

    Cons

    Alot of pressure to sell, and meet personal goals but no commission. The employees are all really catty and will jump on each other's sales.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more consistent hours, less pressure on the team to sell.
