    Pros

    25% off employee discount and associate appreciation sales

    Cons

    I could not wait to leave this company. I worked at the Auburn, CA location and absolutely hated it. The manager claims to hate drama and yet creates all of it. Working with all girls, you're bound to have some sort of drama but there was always so much EXTRA drama because of her. She harasses her employees and makes your life miserable. You can't go home and relax without always worrying about work. I would go over every single step of the night laying in bed knowing I did everything right but scared the manager would find something to yell about. The company is ridiculous. The rules and the pressure is unreal. If you don't sell enough VIP cards and fragrances you will get terminated and to me that is so terrible. You can be doing everything about your job the right way and even go above and beyond but you will still get hounded for not forcing people to buy things they don't want. Pay is terrible especially for all of the work you have to do. I do not recommend this job and I especially do not reccomend the Auburn location.

    Pros

    discount only 25% sales are sometimes better than employee discount

    Cons

    Crappy pay for managers, they want you to drop everything and cover a shift no matter what is happening in your life. And they will talk down to you with no respect. They like to hire young cause they usually dont fight back with things. HR is horrible, they always lose things and blame you for it. If you are white, or african american, dont expect any respect.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the team. and back up your team. thats a sign of a good manager.

    I worked at Styles for Less (More than a year)

    Pros

    great discounts and a flexible work schedule but thats because it was retail and can be done anywhere in the industry..

    Cons

    There is no work life balance at all and they want to hold you accountable when they don't even hold upper management accountable for poor planning and lack of support to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    try to actually listen to your employees and don't threaten to just fire anyone because you don't like them personally. This create s negative work culture.

    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to learn about a industry I was interested in. The training I received gave me the confidence I needed to help people find the best deals and help them shop for what they wanted. Greeting the customers and advertising the VIP program and fragrances were very important and taught me how to stay on my A game.

    Cons

    The company did not give me enough hours

    I want to further my career as a Fashion Designer, and i think this job would best suit me for that. I also love shopping at Styles, so i would be in a great working environment. I am also a fresh high school graduate and i believe this job would be a great start for me,.

    Cons

    I honestly do not find any cons. I would find everything about this job to be a pro.
