    Pros

    The corporate structure leaves so much to be desired that it is easy to form a family mentality with you co-workers (because no one else is going to have your back). Decent discount, good amount of hours and great pay.

    Cons

    Worst internal structure I've ever witnessed. No trust whatsoever on a corporate level, I can see this company going downhill so quickly. Quality of product has dropped noticeably. From the outside, the entire Jones New York group looks like a rapidly sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    In store management: get out now before corporate management sucks you dry

    Pros

    Only working 71/2 hrs a day and getting paid for 8 hrs, Average Salary, Early dismissal on Fridays.

    Cons

    No appriciation of the good work, lack of knowledge at Managerial level. No scope of promotion if you are not on a favorite list of the management.

    Advice to Management

    need to give a chance to associate to prove themselves, need more freedom of work.

    Pros

    the discount is great! You get 40% off, even off of clearance.
    It can be a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Low pay. They were only going to pay me $9 an hour, which is below DC minimum wage!

    Pushy on sales tactics. They pushed their sales tactics which included trying to act like the customer was your friend when in reality most customers don't want to talk to sales people.

    Zero regard for employees. They told us the store was going out of business the day before! One freaking day! They didn't even try to place us in any of the other stores and only would give us a bonus if we helped them clear out the store.

    Poor management- Our store manager never even came to our store most of the time and didn't know what was going on. Well of course the store is going to go out of business then!

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to reevaluate sales tactics and try to hire managers who will do a better job overall and actually know what's going on in the store.
