    I worked at JoS. A. Bank (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work to get sales experience and learn new techniques on how to sell products. All of my coworkers were great and were willing to help me out when I needed it.

    Cons

    Some days it gets really slow and you wont sell much so the commission varies week to week by a significant amount, but commission is great over the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    give the sales associates more freedom to make deals with customers and help make the sales that the company wants.

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

    Pros

    Making 8% commission from any sale which can help increase your paycheck.

    Cons

    The problem is that because everyone is expected to make commission, include THE MANAGERS and YOUR SUPERVISOR, that there a tendency for abuse in power to make more money.

    Advice to Management

    Make so that the managers are not required to make commission. Everything expect to make commission are set at the playing field. None of this seniority or rank BS.

    Pros

    Atmosphere was always a plus. Everyone was friendly and had a good time selling and earning commission.

    Cons

    The fact that the sales change almost every day makes it impossible as a part time employee to keep up with them. It makes us look like we don't know our product when we have to constantly check the price.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a price for longer than a day

    Pros

    My position was in Rock Hill, SC. A small to medium volume store. it was pretty relaxed with a total of 8 employees on the payroll including the tailor. We were all friendly too each other, and work went smooth. The customers are generally friendly with little problems. They also know the product is good, so if they have the money they are going to buy, its your job to get them to buy more. The Pay goes: minimum wage to 8.50 OR commission which ever is more.

    Cons

    Not many cons it was a nice job if your good at sales.

    Advice to Management

    The management was really good at my store. Robert was a good boss.

    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time

    Pros

    Use to be a great place to work if you live at home but not so much now.

    Cons

    The company has decided to make vailed threats of possible termination to their employees. Just great, all the good trustworthy employees with tenure that give a damn will get fired, while the lazy, call out every other day employees will still be employeed. Employees have been caught stealing money from the till and never fire. Unbelieveable!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Since you can't seem to hire anyone reliable to work at Jos Bank you shouldn't hassle the good ones. Leave us alone.

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

    Pros

    Being able to tell people where you work and be mocked for the company's sales. Brand is unfamiliar to a lot of people, but if someone knows it they know the can buy 1 get 3 free.

    Cons

    Corporate is so disorganized.

    robbing people with poor quality clothing.

    I had the worst manager (have no idea why he was in charge)
