    I worked at Icing by Claire's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They had flexible hours and quick training. The management was easy and great to work with. The employee discount was very generous.

    Cons

    Having to pierce children's ears was very difficult. Keeping up with the back stock room was stressful. The organization of the store was difficult to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Please organize the back stock room more effectively. Limit how young children can be when getting there ears pierced, as well.

    Pros

    Company offers fair pay, good benefits and work balance. Great store discount on employee purchases. Young fun environment.

    Cons

    The only draw back is low payroll hours and you work alone much of the time. You have to be able to pierce someones ears.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job for a first time manager or sales associate just starting out. You must like kids and dressing in fashion accessories.

    Pros

    i liked my coworkers other than my manager.

    Cons

    my manager would take as much time off as she wanted leaving me (first third key) in charge of the store. was not paid nearly enough to be running that store the way i was. felt like i was the store manager there.

    Advice to Management

    dont take every single weekend off, dont overwork your people, appreciate those who work hard.
