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

    Pros

    Beautiful clothing, co workers, nice salary for starting.

    Corporate Managers are not as efficient as they think.
    Supplies to the store were almost always denied and shipment was crazy.
    No opportunity to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. We need supplies and we are not going pay out of pocket for bags and toilet paper.

    I have been working at Monsoon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The children clothing is nice.

    Cons

    Inconsistency from corporate management about policy and operations. The rules apply to some but not all. They make you use your phone for work related purposes without paying for it. Bully's and shames everyone at the store level when sales are not being made, in front of peers and subordinates, definitely a hostile working environment. Labor laws are being violated on a consistent basis. Almost no room for advancement within the company if you want something beyond a Store management position. Little to no training when hired. You could go months with out receiving supplies such as toilet paper, trash bags, receipt tape, bags etc and would have to pay out of pocket for them and at times would not be reimbursed. I had to bring paper, trash bags, pens and cleaning supplies from home because they would not approve for you to be reimbursed. Unless you are homeless and starving stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in advertising, hire people with relevant background experience, listening to your employee they are at the front lines and understand the customer base and needs in detail more so than corporate. Abide by the law before a class action lawsuit is filed for violation of labor laws.
