    I worked at Guess? full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for growth if you butter them up.

    Cons

    Total High School environment and cut throat! CEO Victor Herrero one had a meeting for one hour telling us we are not working hard enough to make sales to meeting sales as Europe is not having this many issues. I think he forgot that we live in America. You also aren't allowed to even wave at Paul Marciano. If you see him you are told to walk faster, move out of his way, or walk the other way.

    I have been working at Guess? part-time

    Pros

    40% discount sometimes 50%
    Not too hard

    Cons

    Constant changes in management
    Lack of hours
    Sales to get hours wasn't always fair. I would ask for any hours they could give me and I was always top three in sales. I would only get 8-15 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Have an unbias scheduling system
