    Pros

    Great clothes at decent prices. Decent employee discount.

    Cons

    The manager at the 8th st location...her name is Trish. Not only is she incredibly unprofessional and outright terrible for the job, but simply a terrible person. I was their top sales associate. I took a weekend off to visit my boy friend. Turned out I missed a "staff meeting" and was fired over the phone right on the spot.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Trish. Hire people who truly love fashion and want to be on their feet for 8 hours at a time.

    Pros

    The hours were super flexible. Management was great at what they did. Everyone was nice and helped me when I had a problem with something. Sometimes we would have a dressup day where we tried on new clothing so that everyone could learn about the clothing. which helped us sell the clothing and accessories better.

    Cons

    Sometimes you would be stuck with a friday and saturday closing shift every week. Schedules were made too far in advance. I never knew what days I needed off. We needed to sell to get shifts. High sellers got more hours. Pay is near minimum wage. New management took over when I was working there. They ended up letting everyone go without reason. What use to be 4 4 great stores, there are now only 2 left. I guess management is doing great!!!

    Advice to Management

    Do not let go your best employees who sell the most. Your pricing is too expensive. Your sales do not attract people into the store. Learn how to run your business better. Learn how to communicate. Changing store huors will not help your bankruptcy problems.

    Pros

    Perfect job for a hardworking teen, Awesome if interested in part time, Great feedback is given by management if a job is well done, extremely flexible schedule and employees willing to cover a shift last minute.

    Cons

    Don't expect to pay the bills with the paycheck, must be good at sales- hours are given based on sales, must be efficient at problem solving.

    Pros

    The Middle management is excellent and the clothes sell themselves. They are usually very accommodating to employees schedule.

    Cons

    The pay is very low compared to the amount of responsibilities expected from the position.
    Employees are constantly secret-shopped by management.There is a weird passive-aggressive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need better compensation in order to make up for all the responsibilities expected of them
