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

    Pros

    Basic retail, no mannequins, no constant window changes, a lot of opportunity to put special touches on your store such as merchandising (depending who your current dm)

    Cons

    You are treated like crap every other day. The company do not know what direction they are going in. One person say everything is good another say the total opposite (corporate visits) guidelines or very loose but somehow you still get chewed out to much. Freight is always heavy but NOOOO hours to support getting it out until a corporate visit is coming then everybody running around like a chicken with no head. No such thing as confidentiality. Training is very very bad. The main problem is the most controllable expense is payroll and the do not give enough at all 2 mill plus store over 12 sqft daily freight 100plus boxes 188 hours...u figure that out. I don't think corporate know what's really going on in the field

    Advice to Management

    To much

    Pros

    Base compensation and bonus is a plus, Great co workers and communication with other stores, new items daily, closed on major Holidays

    Cons

    Communication from home office is changed at district level until a visit, absolutely no support at District level, Job is threatened daily via demands. job recognition is all but non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees and managers fairly and with respect, provide support when needed, do not set employees up for failure.

    Pros

    Great Bonus, You have the ability to run your store as needed. Store changes merchandise based on the ability to purchase items.

    Cons

    Poor communication from corporate. not clear directives from district managers and corporate. Corporate tells you to thing out of the box but when changes are made they come in and slam you for your direction. Corporate should just tell store how to operate and merchandise their product.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of left hand right hand issues, listen more to store managers. Stop taking advantage of store personnel, they are what makes your company.
