    I have been working at Guess? full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Guess over 6 years and have found amazing opportunities for growth and development. Senior management is always open to allowing a person to spread their wings, try new things and truly own their career trajectory. I've found that if you're able to rise to the challenges before you, then you will be rewarded for your efforts. But, in the day to day, the best thing about the company is the strong sense of community among the teams. We're all so passionate about what we do every day, and are real partners, working together to make great product.

    Cons

    The fashion industry as a whole is facing challenges in the current retail space, and Guess is no different. But, the leadership is nimble and creative in facing those challenges head on and will come out stronger for it in the end.

    Advice to Management

    There is a big issue with brand perception which needs to be addressed. I wish our current social media presence and advertising highlighted the new, more fashion forward aesthetic of the line, rather than just the sexy vibe that we've always been known for.

    I have been working at Guess? part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - starting pay is higher than other retail jobs
    - due to the lack of staff, holiday season associate hours were increased

    Cons

    - top management puts way too much pressure on retail managers and associates
    - assigns too many high priority tasks that need to be accompished while fulfilling selling goals
    - sets unrealistic goals
    - less likely to promote within

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to assign more tasks to lower managements and teams, show greater appreciation for the work they do.

    I have been working at Guess? (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good discount. Love the ad campaigns. That's is obviously where the money goes. Joe Jonas and Hailey Baldwin are both amazing and liked celebrities.

    Cons

    Heavy workload, customers call you racist because the company expects you to use recovery statements when people steal. They want you to follow customers around and make sure they don't steal.

    Advice to Management

    If DMs and regionals expect employees to "service customers" to avoid theft, they should lead by example.

    Pros

    -It's based in favoritism (So get along with managers)
    -Good platform
    -decent discount

    Cons

    -Pay sucks
    -hours are extremely long at times
    -everybody ends up quitting (including me)
    -If you don't make sales goal, you stay open longer...
    -Very stressful when it comes to making sales goal
    -The more you sell the more hours you get...again it comes down to favoritism
    -No commission

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage store better, already at my location everything was a mess and became really stressful to work. Also employees need to be paid more
