    I worked at U.S. Polo Assn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great Staff
    - Great discount
    - High energy
    - Easy shopping experience for customers
    - Ability to streamline own ideas

    Cons

    - Little to no growth beyond store level
    - Condescending feedback from upper management
    - Corporate can't seem to get on the same page about communication to stores.
    - Way too much corporate involvement on the store level.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your leaders to lead. This is why they were hired. Corporate associates who do not have experience in running stores should collaborate rather than dictate on store issues. Also, people should be rewarded for great work consistently by way of promotion or merit increases. You should consider adopting an annual review period, then perhaps retention of store level employees would not be an increased problem. And if that isn't possible, it doesn't hurt once in a while to tell someone they are doing their best. Let's get better at appreciating people just as much as we poke at them when we aren't pleased with their performance. In that case, even if you can't incentivize them monetarily, at least they can come to work sometimes feeling inspired because they feel their leaders care about them.
