    I worked at Guess? full-time

    Pros

    Decent money
    Nice clothes

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism
    Very high turn over rate
    Never fully staffed for long
    No weekends or holidays
    The store manager of course gets the best hours & you get stuck closing
    Very stressful environment
    No creative freedom
    Another company that does not care about the employees
    I just would not recommend wasting your time
    If I could give no stars I would

    Advice to Management

    No advice but seek a better opportunity, most people leave the company anyways and I see why.

    I have been working at Guess? part-time

    Pros

    40% discount and we have an awesome staff. I like working at Guess in las Vegas we have a great staff and they really do try to make it easier on everyone. We do NOT have to wear the Guess brand it just has to look similar and we all genuinely like each other. The managers invite us over to parties they are having and vice versa. They let us ask for our breaks and try to get you to them within five to eight minutes of you asking. We DO get an hour for our lunches if you are working a full shift if you're working part time then yes you get a half hour but that's the same at any place I've worked. They give you multiple breaks throughout the day if you aren't working a full shift just so you cab sit and breath. In our store they don't get on you about the sale quota if you don't make it they will give you less hours for obvious reasons but for the most part everyone works pretty much the same hours.

    Cons

    We have to wear the guess sneakers in order to wear sneakers and you can only wear certain clothes which kinda of defeats the purpose of wearing the clothes.

    Advice to Management

    We should be able to wear everything from the store because you want everything to sell. Most of the stuff I've worn has sold in the store simply because I had it on and the clients want what I'm wearing. We should also get a clothing allowance because at 10.50 hr we can't really afford to buy clothes up front and still pay bills. Most of us get jobs to pay bills not buy clothes. We also should be allowed to dress on trend meaning that if it is winter we should be allowed to wear all the winter items give the customer a cgnace to see how to dress it other than whats suggested by guess. Most people stop and see what we're wearing as they walk by and then decide to come in. I am usually up front because management likes to put the girls who look modelish in front so give us a chance to fully represent the brand.

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Most employees are nice and happy to help. There are a lot of Central American tourists so if you don't speak Spanish you will need your coworkers to help you make sales.

    Cons

    Hours are based on how much you sell. It's hard to get better at selling when you don't get hours to practice.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees with low SPH learn good selling techniques.
