    Pros

    The team I worked with at my store. Great workers and people.

    Cons

    The company and district managers need to work on being considerate toward employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to listen to employee's needs and be flexible with them. Make the opportunity for a raise at least a POSSIBLE thing.

    I have been working at Tween Brands part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's pretty fun to go to work and help out little girls choose what to wear. Shifts aren't more than 8 hours and part time girls usually get about 4 hour shifts.

    Cons

    Terrible customers
    They think work is your life and always want you to come in last minute
    Low hourly pay
    Sometimes you don't get a break

    Advice to Management

    Stop gossiping so much about your coworkers. There's no trust

    Pros

    Allows you to perform and develop leadership skills, customer service, time management skills, and ability to manage a staff.

    Cons

    A lot of procedures and handbooks to follow. They're always changing their procedures so once you get comfortable and master the current processes, then it changes.

    I worked at Tween Brands part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and everyone always seemed to want to lend a hand and work as a team.

    Cons

    When I worked there the coupons and sales were VERY confusing to customers and it often made them angry. "call-in shifts" were awful and as a part time employee you are expected to keep full time hours available to work, although often never utilized. I was offered promotions but the raise in pay did not match the increase of responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    the brand reps always seemed to be treated as disposable, they are the ones dealing with the customers. if they were treated like more valuable members on the team I am sure customer service would improve.

    I worked at Tween Brands part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff can be fun, decent discounts, encouraged to wear cute trendy clothes

    Cons

    Corporate had annoying pushy sales tactics. This ended up driving away potential customers, upper management was always miserable and condescending.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to your employees. Don't play favorites when scheduling and promote within.

    I have been working at Tween Brands part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being around people
    Love kids
    Love shopping
    Need a job
    Love looking at clothes and choosing which style they fit into
    I love making and outfit out of something random. I do that with my nieces clothes all the time
    Picking and outfit is the most important thing of the day. It's what everyone will see you in. It's what you think looks good, and what you're comfortable and happy in.

    Cons

    Feeling like I am failing
    Won't be able to do anything right
    Won't be able to help in a way that the others can

    Advice to Management

    Tell me what to do and I will try my best to do it
