    Great people, very sales driven, helps you learn a lot about retail. The company really values promoting current employees so there's room to grow

    I worked at 2 tilly's locations, the first location was amazing! The second had a lot of management turnover, which was frustrating.

    I have been working at Tillys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, light workload

    Cons

    Schedule isn't very flexible, lots of blackout dates for PTO, you are micromanaged on minute details of day to day operations

    Advice to Management

    Pay ASMs more, pay sales associates time and a half for holidays, trust your SMs to make small decisions for their own stores

    I worked at Tillys part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was an easy job. You fold clothes, keep everything looking nice, restock items, clean the dressing rooms, and help customers. Not a hard job in the slightest.

    Cons

    The training was lacking. My "training" was watching 3 videos in the back of the storage room and that was that. No one trained me on the floor and I had to figure out everything on my own. It was easy to figure out, but still would have been nice to have been actually trained so I could have the skill set I needed for success.

    Advice to Management

    Train your seasonal employees better. Make sure training is paid. My training session took way too long to be unpaid, especially since the videos I was shown were awfully outdated.
