    I worked at Guess? part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff, great fashionable merchandise, fun environment.

    Cons

    The main reason I left my location in Florida was because I was making just almost a dollar over minimum wage yet the pressure and intensity of having to sell such high numbers with no commission at all was not worth it. I also had to mop and broom the entire store by myself in the mornings, and dust and clean all mirrors.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to CEO and owners of Guess, you should have commission at ALL locations considering what you expect the employees to sell on a daily basis and what you pay them. You should pay employees better period, considering how expensive and successful your brand is, be fair.

    I have been working at Guess? full-time

    Pros

    Paid out for vacation and sick pay once you leave.

    Cons

    Old computer systems. Low compensation. No commission or bonuses besides an "incentive card" which is basically a gift card for hitting a sales goal, but they do not compensate enough.
    Always hiring due to lack of being able to keep associates and managers.
    When you are short staffed managers they just expect the managers to work open to close shifts to make up for the shortage.

    Nothing I can really think of
