    Pros

    Discounts are good if you actually like some of their clothes which most people would eventually. A few good coworkers.

    Cons

    Snotty nose environment. Not necessarily the coworkers bit just the way the store is made to be presented. Maybe the visual coordinator was snotty by reflection of how he dressed and posed the mannequins

    I worked at Mexx (More than a year)

    Pros

    They taught me the importance of customer service and that focusing on customers drives sales.

    Cons

    The hours they offered as a part time were not that great.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a better way to come up with whose sale it was, because this was sometimes a problem. (Since we all had a daily goal to meet)

    Pros

    There was a great team in a good working environment whom all worked to meet the daily budgets.

    Cons

    The bonus and commission was taken away. This made it less motivating to sell for the company. Not enough hours for everyone as too many people were hired

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the commission pay and offer more hours

    I worked at Mexx part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. A good stepping stone to other retail positions. Overall, easy tasks to handle and do.

    Cons

    Bad hours - shifts were short but still had to go in multiple times a week. Stat holidays were not always accounted for.

    Advice to Management

    Better store managers might improve employee attitudes. If employees work 15 minutes over their scheduled shift, they should be paid for it.
