    I worked at Icing by Claire's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of hours for a part time job, pretty productive work days, friendly coworkers, and the skills you learn are pretty valuable for future jobs. Some customers that come in the store are also very friendly so it makes the workday enjoyable.

    Cons

    Difficult to meet goals at times, management is super controlling, management usually blames employees for not meeting goals or if something in the store doesn't look right.

    I worked at Icing by Claire's full-time

    Pros

    The discount is pretty good but it isn't worth it in the end.

    Cons

    Often work alone with no breaks. The managers are very petty and break policy. Upper management is also petty and will basically bully you. They will go as far as to edit your time sheet to put in an unpaid break, when you didn't even get a break because you were working alone. They will all lie to you too. Also they are so disorganized, especially with schedules. They will often force you to travel to other stores and not pay you for travel too. It is impossible to call out because there is never anyone else working, and when you do need to call out, they call it a no call/no show.

    I worked at Icing by Claire's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The 50% discount (does not combine with promotions)

    Cons

    Everything else- you have to dress like aol every day, push piercings on people, and you are forced to push things on people that they don’t want.

    I worked at Icing by Claire's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    50% discount (60% on cosmetics)

    Cons

    almost all shifts are by yourself for 6-8 hours with no break. sign changes every. single. night. even if you’re scheduled for a break, you probably won’t get one unless you make a big deal about it. Not enough employees to be able to have coverage if you’re sick, so you have to come in even if you have a fever or are throwing up.
