Great Discount, if you have a team that gets along, there can be a great family environment
There is extremley low to no room for growth after the store management position. Not only were a ton of upper field management positions cut, you will not even be considered for a corporate position unless you live in Duluth. Too many things are focused on and changed at once to try to get a steady store environment and team training consistency. Pay is also extremely low for retail management. There is A LOT of pressure put on SM's for little compensation. Had a great relationship with my ASL before they took her away and now the new DM cancels every time she's supposed to visit. The DM has had the store since July and has not come in once.

40% discount , good salary, ok insurance but wait 3 moths for it
the dm supports the sales associates and repremands the store manager if they have an accountability talk. The dm was not supportive, when thats suppose to be a big focus with the company. I got very little training and was held very accountable for knowing everything in 2 months.2

Lots of company enthusiasm for fashion and personalized experiences. cute clothes. 40% discount, plus an occasional additional discount. Lots of opportunity for advancement.
store manager had inadequate training which trickled down throughout the store and resulted in low sales and numbers. instead of 'coaching,' like the company teaches heavily throughout training procedures, the store manager would often get angry, shift blame, resort to petty behavior, bad mouth sales associates and other managers, and make little to no effort to actually work on store wide opportunity areas. I also heard numerous racist comments out of the store managers mouth throughout the few months I worked there.

Maurices offers a great employee discount 40% off, and the work environment is fun. And most stores can work with your schedules. Clothes are great quality and the training is great when you first start.
The discount is great, however when you only work 2-3 days a week making minimum wage it's hard to keep up with the company's standards of clothes. They want you to stay on trend and wear the new clothes of every season. This doesn't leave much left of your paycheck. I'd only recommend to a friend if this job isn't needed for income, because it's hard to bring something home with the clothes they require you to buy. Other than that its a great job.

The other workers were the best part 40% discount with occasional extra 20% It was fun to help people who truly wanted style advice
Training is inconsistent and they don’t care about if you are ready for what they’re asking you. I worked twice before they had me open and close and run the store by myself. I didn’t feel ready. Almost cultish with how they handle customers referring to all of them as “Liv”. My store leader would say “That mannequin is horrendous. Liv wouldn’t want that.” So weird. Almost impossible to get shifts covered and say goodbye to weekends. Evenings will be scheduled until 8:15 but you never get out on time. They focus way too much on credit card sign ups. Have to greet the customer within thirty seconds and make small talk until you either annoy them into leaving or are trapped in awkward conversation.1

They had a great training programs and wanted their employees to excel at their job. They had many opportunities for their employees to advance with the company.
I felt that they were more concerned with making sales and hitting goals than they were about the employees. This could very well just be the district I worked in though.

The company always challenges you to do better through a great training program (the MBA) and incentives. Clothes are amazing and pay is better than other retailers.
It’s hard to keep a good work life balance, but that’s the nature of retail. It’s hard to accomplish all that’s expected without additional hours (training, shipment, visual, etc.). Without adequate hours, traffic per labor hour is higher and it’s difficult to achieve the expected 5% increase in conversion.1

The job pays decently for what it is. There is a good training system in place and their customer service philosophy is very strong.
While corporate wants everyone to work as a team, there are very specific stats that each person has to meet. That means that everyone is trying to essentially "beat" the other associates with sales, charge card sign-ups, etc. Associates are strongly encouraged to wear only current maurices clothing, which gets expensive. Their system for finding internal theft is flawed as well. In any given day, all associates and managers will ring sales on every cash register. This means that, if at the end of the day, a register doesn't balance, someone could be blamed that was not responsible. There is no way to track exactly who may be responsible, so corporate relies on assumptions and finger-pointing. Very unprofessional and disrespectful to those who take their careers seriously.1

Great Benefits, fun work environment, flexible schedule for the most part. good pay
you have to where their clothes and are supposed to be current with the seasons and colors in store, we do get a 40% discount but it still is a hardship on employees at times to constantly have to upgrade wardrobe. I think some managers are more strict on this then others. Also they sweat the small stuff sometimes in their SOPs when it comes to training videos and such.
