    I worked at Melrose full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nope, can't think of any.

    Cons

    If you ever think about working for Melrose to step up in the business, I'd advise against it. Working at the home office was a joke. Management is too old to be working anymore. They don't listen to new ideas and think that using the same techniques over and over again is going to produce different results. It's a shame. Buyers are so burnt out that they just buy the same, old, out-of-style garments that should never be purchased because management only wants to hike up the price in hopes of a high margin. Clothes fall apart so easily that they aren't even worth the $2 they paid for it. Employees that have been there for awhile are only still there because they don't ask for raises and are content with settling. If you are someone who hopes to bring your modern vision and innovative ideas to the company, stay away. Don't even waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and hire competent people who are willing to take risks to improve business.

    I worked at Melrose full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-workers to work with.

    Cons

    The company has a high turn out rate. The sales associates never receive raises, benefits, or holiday pay. The company lacks diversity the videos that are sent to the stores for employees to view that the company is trying to appeal to the "The Hispanic Family" when their customers are very versatile.. Equipment and technology is dated. Corporate often threatens employees that to not use them as reference. They believe that majority of their employees steal from them. When the police wanted to see a copy of a customer shopping he thought it was strange all the cameras were pointed at the employees instead of the sales floor.
