    Pros

    I can't think of any pros here.

    Cons

    Short shifts
    Expect you to constantly be in the customers face
    Other employee's can be very competitive when it comes to meeting sales goals
    Very short staffed, will have you working all week with no days off

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employee's and stop over-working the few that you have.

    I have been working at Groupe Dynamite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Cloths, any girl of any style, shape and size can find something to wear.

    Fun Brand, the cloths are trendy and versatile.

    Opportunity for growth, company is growing with in the next two years!
    Love the people I work with. Garage is very selective with who they hire, and so far i love everyone I come into contact with.

    Corporate is very nice! Karen (Lead over the US & Canada stores) and Danielle (CEO) are

    Pay is pretty decent. Garage pays higher than most retail stores.

    Great values, this is one thing that caught my eye. They really have great outlooks on what customer service and sales should be. the upbringing of the stores history is also very cool.

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Needs stronger organized leadership

    Management thinks they can get away with not having enough management. (taking away the stock room manager, visual manager, and taking their time hiring additional assistants and keys). They don't realize that when they do that, they are not only over loading managers, and associates. They are also letting things get out of hand! They aren't pushing out product on the floor fast enough, leading to less sales numbers. The stock rooms, and fitting rooms are becoming a mess. The store doesn't get cleaned or dusted. Since its dirty product can get damaged. On top of that a dirty unorganized environment leads to un-happy workers and clients.

    I feel like certain management could use a little more training , including ALL of management. (Keys, Asst. Store Man., Store management, District management.)

    this brand has huge potential to grow but I feel like they are getting sloppy.

    allowing too much drama between associates

    Advice to Management

    Get organized!! Hire the management that you need!

    I worked at Groupe Dynamite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro in this company was that the clothing was really cute and the pay was competitive.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, no work home life balance, rude bullies as upper management, tons of gossip, no support for new employees, really old operating systems, little to no training, budgets are way to high. Senior management plays favorites, unrealistic goals are set for part time empolyees who only get 1-2 shifts per week.

    Advice to Management

    Support your new employees.

    I have been working at Groupe Dynamite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is pretty good, as long as you don't take into account the ridiculous number of hours that you're going to have to work.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance at all. I'm a store manager and regularly work 50-60 hours per week, yet I'm salaried so no OT.

    Advice to Management

    Working for this company is the worst job I have had in over 15 years of retail management. I regret the decision to take this job.
