    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Irene’s Story part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule Coworkers are looked at as a close knit family In love with main office workers- all so nice and professional and very hard working Jenna, the manager at Mission Viejo mall, is one of the most professional workers I have come across; always with a positive attitude and made me so excited to come into work everyday

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about my experience here at Irene's Story. Whenever a customer had an issue or something was wrong in the store, the managers and sales associates worked with each other as well as main office to fix the problem immediately.

  6. "Meh"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Manager 

    I worked at Irene’s Story part-time

    Pros

    I can't find any. Maybe they open the store 10 minutes earlier mall opens which means you can go to work not that early.

    Cons

    no benefits at all, never cheering employees, even employee discount is like nothing

    I have been working at Irene’s Story part-time

    Pros

    There’s nothing really expect maybe my coworkers.

    Cons

    Management sucks, they expect you to reach the sales goal with no clothing in the store and asks what are you doing wrong. If you’re white or Korean you’re automatically hired. Language barrier is very unfortunate/annoying they hardly speak any English so you have to play the guessing game and they get mad when you don’t understand them. One girl was almost fired because there was a miscommunication and the manager was not saying what she wanted in the right way. No room for growth or raises, they only hire Korean managers because of the language barrier and the company is going downhill.

    I worked at Irene’s Story full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They provide catered lunch and parking.

    Cons

    Worked for a parent company but same owners as Irene's Story. They encouraged creativity and new ideas and tell you they like what you're doing but then they criticize your work after they let you go. No sensitivity to their employees and the owner is cold hearted. No communication or constructive criticism which is necessary in a creative position. They have you work on things you aren't hired for. I asked for a job description for me to sign and she told me to "write my own job description" ...
