    Good entry level job for customer service. Flexible hours within store hours of operations and enjoyable staff. Overall fun experience.

    Not much room for growth within the company. They need to stop hiring random people into management positions and need to start hiring people who are committed to the company. UNDER PAID.

    Actually be at your store and hire the right people.

    Pros

    In control of sales. Get out early. Always opportunity for over time.

    Cons

    Condescending. Poor training. Empty promises. Deceiving managers. Investment in wardrobe to start. Pmda are high to keep up with attire requirement. No sales associates, not enough staff. No support from team members. If you're passive you have to step it up. If you're agressive or sales driven you need to step it down" because everyone needs to make a living". They don't focus on tuxedo revenues but complain that store numbers are low. They want a sales Executive to fill positions and do sales associate work as well as focusing on numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire sales support.

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Getting to know new customers, and selling good product to them is great. Why does this make me write more pros there are none !!!

    Cons

    Jos A Bank was better off before the takeover, MW is like the little brother who wants what the older brother has and cause they're family he thinks he can do what he wants to achieve it. MW middle management is nothing short of a joke, they come to the JAB side and want to tell you everything you have done is wrong we are right do it our way or we will fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what made JAB great not focusing on the faults and changing everything , there's something to be said for a company that has been around for 100+ years and continually making quarterly profits for at least the six years I was there before you took over and as soon as you take over we haven't had a positive quarter in two years. You made a mistake now just don't destroy what's left of JAB

    Pros

    Make friends. Clearance stuff can be good when extra discount applied.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Assistant manager takes you away from sales while making same sales percent commission as all employees just 1 dollar higher hourly pay while doing extra not worth it. Horrible discount structure now. If you sell good you can wear miniskirts which make you able to sell more by being a prostitute. Sales associates battle for customers. So slow.

    Advice to Management

    Need better pay for assistant managers. Treat all employees equally. Same dress code for all. No short stuff where we can see your undies.
