Most of my co-workers were kind of fun to work with.
Management is very immature-- it is almost like being in high school again. Pay is terrible, minimum wage. Hours are long and schedule is not flexible

Discount Nice clothing : ) Good corporate ( free candy on holidays)
Have to buddy up with managers to get promotions Favoritism All the mangers walk all over you they nit pick on your attire and physic (chipped nails, wet hair) Managers and other associates steal your sales Have to give your sales away via 'rotating sales' on the weekends (the most volume days) Won't work with school or family life Cuts your hours if your not 'preforming' the way you want to Will cut hours due to stats but complain about how your not making stats (YOU HAVE NO HOURS TO MAKE THEM! ) Expects you to wear Maurices like clothing but will say something if managers don't think its very MauriceS Ran by teenagers (my one manager was 17) Never expect to get anything that is promised (compensation rates and such) Managers think they are better than you (and treat you that way when they work at a lady's clothing store!) Store managers hire new people and cut everyone elses hours (bad) to train them Holds meetings at 10:30 at night on weekdays when school is in session and expects you to be there Store managers make you complete worksheets Manager cant handle the store on her own POOR COMPENSATION RATES FOR ANYONE WHO ISN'T A MANAGER (sales associates and sales support) They 'prefer' associates to have the charge card Must be a mindless teenager to work there5

I learned a lot while working here and it was perfect management experience.
Retail hours and as a manager I was only paid $9.00 even with my 4 year degree in Consumer Affairs. Left and got a job paying $20 an hour with my qualifications1

It is in Forbes top retail companies to work for. All positions are equally treated. Always room for growth.
limited hours for sales associates (that's with the majority of retail because of payroll)

The store is bright and open, has various "shops" with everything from casual to dressy and in between. Co-workers are like a second family and really make the difference from good to great in terms of teamwork and support. For me, my co-workers are why I stayed as long as I did. The discount is great at 40% (additional 20% off sale merch) and there are clothes for most personal styles and occupations. The company's bottom line is great and they also like to promote from within. There are rewards for making goals and depending on your team the atmosphere is usually bustling and happy, even on slower days. Your experience will vary greatly depending on your team and the way in which the store manager runs the show.
- This company is flat-out ridiculous when it comes to pushing their store credit card. Employees, associates and managers alike, are punished by upper management for not meeting credit card goals, which is about 30 new applications a week (this is impossible to reach, especially in smaller towns with a lot of regular customers.) You can be written up for not reaching your individual credit card goal (three write-ups and you're fired.) - While the company does like to promote from within, this takes a very long time. Also, depending on the size of your store, moving from part-time employment to full-time can be non-existent, and transfering stores is also quite the process and not very time efficient. - The pay is lacking for associates at around $8 - 8.50 an hour and you're only eligible for a raise once a year in the spring/summer; these can be good or bad (they're based on your sales numbers - for a low seller the raise can be nothing to about 10 cents.) Always ask for a quarter more when you're given the job. - The return policy is also ridiculous; the company is only hurting itself here. For example, I had a customer that returned a pair of jeans that she bought more than a YEAR ago, returning them because they 'wore out.' My manager said I had to do it. There are plenty of fraudulent returns as well, ones without receipts and from other stores, and you can be punished if you're the employee doing that return transaction. - The company's anti-shoplifting policies are also terrible - they basically make it impossible to apprehend shoplifters, and this can make for a stressful work enviroment during busier times. There can also be terrible communication (as was the case for me) between associates and upper management, and also bad communication between store managers and district managers. - While the company has an anti-gossiping policy, this is still a major issue that goes unaddressed (I heard many, many unprofessional comments made by both the store manager and DM) and can encourage cattiness in some situations. Cattiness also ensues if your store has individual sales goals and 'games' to get larger sales. - Full timers are expected to make several thousand a week, which can be hard, and even part-time associates are expected to make up to $1200 individually, sometimes even on week days! Hours are drastically cut if sales numbers are not being made; sometimes I'd get cut after two hours of being on my shift. - Our DM would tell our store manager that some of our girls were 'sloppy' and 'unfashionable' for not wearing all Maurices and not wearing 'enough' makeup. - Company policy is against telling customers the store is closed, so you can be there up to two to three hours after closing time. This wasn't as hard for me (single, no kiddos) but one of our girls was a mother of three and this was really hard for her to stay after hours (as late as 11 pm.) The worst part of this is the company then turns around and says you went over on hours so due to being open for customers after closing your hours are then cut the following week. This is contradictory and unfair. - If you are a 'positive net producer' your hours are increased, but if you're a 'negative net producer' your hours are drastically cut (sometimes down to four hours a week!) and you will be lectured by the managers on what you're doing wrong. My experience with Maurices is that they focus way too much on what you DIDN'T do, what sales you DIDN'T get and are constantly lecturing and punishing their employees. A little deserved praise and positivity would do wonders for employee morale.1

Great clothing discount and the quality of clothing is well above average. Fun environment and good team to work with. Perfect job to supplement income, increase your connections, update your wardrobe or get you out of your normal 8-5 grind with your regular job. Lots of opportunities for advancement being they have over 800 stores in the US & Canada.
Constantly having to update the wardrobe to what is on the sales floor negates the incoming paycheck at times. Scheduling conflicts can occur when already working a 40 hour full time job & taking educational courses.

Get a raise every year, so long as you are meeting your stats. Get paid hourly, but are expected to service customers like a commissionable job. Hours aren't bad at all, until holidays roll around. People and bosses can be fun to work with. Great vacations hours and medical insurance if you are full-time.
Can be VERY stressful with all the expectations they have, on top of your regular job duties. Not enough payroll hours for the stores to successfully fulfill all requirements from week to week. Discount hasn't risen, but most prices have gone up. Will not allow anyone in school to become full-time.

They seem to care about their people and have an excellent leadership training program that can be utilized by all employees.
Retail hours and if you don’t have the right store lead work life balance can be hard.

Flexible hours, competitive pay for this type of job, the company allows sales associates to move up if they want. The company seems to be pretty stable, new stores open frequently, and they update the look of the stores to stay on trend and desirable to shoppers. I had fun working for this company.
Very busy store at the location I worked but a busy shift makes time go by faster! It was hard to get full time hours so benefits were not an option for me.
