    I worked at Garage full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    As part of the expansion in the US I was able to travel, train, and share my passion for the business. I made myself available for stretch assignments and therefore was able to grow both personally and professionally. Good insurance.

    Cons

    Recognition is given based on favoritism and politics, not based on actual results. You cannot trust anyone in the US organization, constant backstabbing and shady business by coworkers and district manager/regional manager so they can shine. Regional manager is not straight forward— runs the east coast like she is still in high school. Be prepared to have extremely thick skin— because you will be talked to like absolute...

    Advice to Management

    Look at how the east coast is run now... so many long standing, passionate, and driven employees have left in just the last two years— what’s the common denominator?

    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 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...

    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.

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

    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...

    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

      50% off discount was the only upside

      Cons

      Inconsistent leadership. I was with the company for less than a year and went through 4 District Managers. This should have been a real red flag for me. As an external hire you will be told it takes about 9 month to get into the Garage world, but any misstep you take in those 9 months will be viewed as a failure and not as a learning. Be ready for swearing from company seniors as well. They will expect professionalism...

      Advice to Management

      Care about the internal customer's experience. Care about the balance between work and home. Care about the direction DMs give their SMs. Care about the learning curve. Care about your people's experience.
