    I worked at JoS. A. Bank part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job was very easy. Hours were consistent. Other than that, I literally can't think of any pros. This was THE WORST job I've ever had. BE WARNED!

    Cons

    I was sexually harassed by my store manager. Reported it to HR who insisted that they would investigate and that it would be anonymous...last I heard HR gave my store manager the names of the employees who defended me during the investigation and then suddenly dropped the case. Pay was awful, my manager never did anything to help us around the store, he was very dishonest and many people sold things to customers that they didn't need just to make money off them. Customers are the rudest, most entitled people I have ever met. I was overqualified and applied for a promotion but was never even considered and instead an employee whose performance was much worse than mine (and who had been there for a month) was promoted because he told the manager what the employees said about him behind his back. Lots of turnover. Products are outdated and don't cater to anyone but old white men. My coworkers regularly made fun of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL employees with respect

    Pros

    Great co workers, flexible hours

    Cons

    Hard work to meet sales goals and management always finds a reason to not pay you commission. Human resources department is totally clueless. They have absolutely no knowledge of the retail industry.

    Advice to Management

    Retail should be mandatory experience for HR employees. Pay your emotes there worth...without a good Sales staff (who gets minimum wage) where would your sales be?

    Pros

    Kinda slack, friendly, nice AC. Free lunch every now and then. I think corporate needs to check in more ( if they even do it the first place) and make sure everything is running smoothly.

    Cons

    Store doesn't follow corporate rules 100% Some with good reason, some with no good reason

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

    Pros

    Commision was good if you sold over a certain ammount, good ammount of down time, you used to get a paycheck every Friday, employee discount day, buy clothes on free credit taken from your paycheck

    Cons

    Alot, don't bother trying to advance, tuxedo rentals come in horrible shape, they smell and are well passed their service life. Most stores are so understaffed you can not take any time off. Upper management doesn't listen much unless it's a customer complaint. Depending on how much you sell is how much they let you get away with. Employee discount is a joke unless you wait for the employee discount days. Don't expect to leave work at work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop seeing your older employees as an expense, stop lowering the quality of the clothes, stop changing the sales every 3 day then get mad when we honor it. Lower staffing numbers don't mean higher profits just means lost revenue.

    Pros

    Decent client base, small on hand inventory

    Cons

    Management actively encourages sexual harassment from clients and customers to boost sales. Upper management does not assist or step in when requested.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to use email instead of faxing 100 pages of corporate updates every single morning. Do not value clients sales over employee safety.

    Customer loyalty, good quality clothing.

    Cons

    Horrible corporate structure, abusive upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employee's like they matter, instead of overworking and underpaying them. You will find people who are appreciated in their jobs will always invest in the company.

    There used to be a lot but since Mens Wearhouse took over it's gone down the toilet.
