    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are opportunities for growth and promotion. Men's Wearhouse has two different sides to it's stores, a sales side and a rental consultant side. Sales is commission based in most cases and rental is hourly based. There's a large sense of community.

    Cons

    At a store level you deal with a lot of customers which means customer service issues. Having two separate sides also can create some tension among employees.

    Advice to Management

    It's best to not take customer issues back to the team and let it affect your work day. Create a strong bond on your team and make sure everyone helps each other.

    I worked at Men's Wearhouse full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The employees can be good if you get a good team. The discount is higher than most places.

    Cons

    Upper management starting at the senior store manager levels all the way up to the CEO. They took away all benefits: cash bonus, Christmas party, sabbatical earning.... the next to go will bethe company paid outs for store lunch. Which is low enough that you can only afford pizza once a month.
    Managers have become lazy, if you get a good one dont take it for granted. Management doesnt know how to actually manage a store let alone people. Mentorship is non existant.
    The pay is awful. Without being told so, it feels as though the regionals get a bonus based on unused payroll allowance.
    Operations is a joke these days. Responsible for a division for 12-13$ an hour. The only way to make more is by staying underpaid and earning your yearly raise of 10 cents.....

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for. Keep the pay low amd you will get unloyal, terribly work ethic, pay driven instead of service driven employees. They (we) are unhappy, all corporate benefits have been removed while the executives take pay imcreases.
    Zimmer took a pay cut one year so that employees didnt have such a drastic increase on health premiums. Ewert and his team are greedy and only care about their own circles instead of the company they run.

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time

    Pros

    If you don't like your family it's a great place to work because you won't ever see them

    Cons

    You are married to your job and never get to see your family
    When you resign you loose all your vacation time even though you earned it and it wasn't handed to you
    You loose your sick time even though you never took one day off
    A lot of favorites if your not one forget about it
    No training

    Advice to Management

    Need more training . You are thrown to the wolves and are expected to remember everything you are taught the first time. Managers have their favorites. If you have earned your vacation time and had no chance to take it if you resign you should be paided for it . Should be a balance between work and home. You should not have to make the choice like I was,

    I worked at Men's Wearhouse part-time

    Pros

    Starts off well, company parties and potlucks

    Cons

    Very toxic place, the employees start out great but there is a lot of passive aggressive behavior. There is a lot of division within the stores. If you work on the tuxedo side you are expected to do everything in the store. Examples: clean up after consultants when they leave a pile of clothes on a table, clean the store (consultants typically stand and watch tv while you vacuum or wipe down mirrors), check people out at the register, put looks together for the consultants, and still work the tuxedo department. There is no appreciation for people who are hourly on the tuxedo side, you are pretty much work non-stop while others stand there. Management tends hangs out in the office and lets the consultants do whatever they want as long as they make the sell. Store manager would even allow extra discounts when there is no sale going on. Pay is low and time off is hard to get depending on the location.

    Advice to Management

    Start having a more unified team. If one person is doing all of the work you are more likely to push them out versus keeping a valuable employee. I saw too many loyal people who worked in the tuxedo department quit due to being overworked, underpaid, and not valued.
