    I have been working at Maurices full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Maurices offers a great discount and a fun environment to work in! I love getting to know customers and feeling empowered and encouraged by the company to go above and beyond for every customer that walks through the door. The clothes are so cute and getting paid to shop with customers is a dream job!

    Cons

    The company's return policy makes it very easy for customers to bully employees and to take advantage of the company. Often times this has extremely negative affects sales for the day, which does not seem to be an acceptable reason for failing to hit goals. There is also an extreme oversight when it comes to ensuring store managers are meeting standards. Constant changes in company structure make it difficult for DM's to truly have a feel for what is going on in stores and often times huge red flags are missed for far too long. I have now worked with a great team and also very toxic, drama queens. Your experience will truly depend on what kind of team and culture that particular store has.

    Advice to Management

    Find a company structure that works and stick with it. DM's take the time to really listen to employees, not just SM's, but everyone in the store to ensure the environment is truly healthy. Please look into updating the return policy.

    I have been working at Maurices part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment is very positive and allows for plenty of growth and development in sales skills as well as personal.

    Cons

    It is difficult to go from part-time to full-time, as the turn over is not quick and there are often too many employees for the pay roll.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay would be ideal. The starting wages for management are very low, and barely meet living expenses.
