    Pros

    You learn how to dress. You meet important people. Employees work together. You help people that have no idea on how to dress up and make them look sharp!

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage. Not enough traffic to realistically meet the quota to then earn a commision check. The class of the store and products has an extremely big gap from the pay!

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your associates more!!

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission potential is huge.

    Cons

    Terrible hours (retail). Not really any work/life balance. Poor upper management. No one really has a clue what they are doing. No guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Build people up rather than bring them down. Praise your employees for all they have done rather than treat them like crap.

    Pros

    Great Insurance Benefits along with low stress work goals and flexible hours work great for someone going through some health changes.

    Cons

    Low wages and the seasonal nature of the job make it hard to make ends meet if this is your main source of income.

    Pros

    Good experience I had when I first worked there. It was a good step to get all the experience as a keyholder and go somewhere to get a higher position.

    Cons

    When I got transfer, the manager I had last was the worst. He gives the company a bad name.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to district manager. Listen to your employees below store manager.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There might still be a few good people left

    Cons

    It was a rough company to work for before the men's wearhouse buy out. At least decisions made by management were to help grow the business and they did. After the merger, new management promised "best practices". Previous jab management had a lot of efficiencies that were very profitable. Mens wearhouse chose to follow only their practices, and working for both companies, the difference was clear.

    Advice to Management

    I witnessed top quality professionals tossed away. They were real assets to business growth. management continuously chose mw method over "best practices". Jab was successful for many years due to cost effective business decisions. We watched new management waste time, budget, talent, and efficiencies that they had in the jab team. You've destroyed that which made jab work and what the customers loved. Clear difference in professionalism between the jab team and mw team.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to network

    Cons

    Absolutely impossible to use vacation time.
    The expectations on what you should be able to accomplish vs how many payroll hours the store is given to use is laughable.
    Doesn't pay out unused vacation time upon departure anymore. Since it's almost impossible to use, it's basically stealing from employees.
    Upper management has absolutely no clue or care about the challenges we face at the store level.
    Forced to work when by my doctor said I couldn't work.
    It's impossible to find good employees because of the well known issues within the company.
    They close locations with very little notice given to the employees. That's a process that requires a lot of planning. I will never be convinced that more than 2 week notice couldn't be given to the staff so they can find a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of advice, they wouldn't listen so it's pointless.
