    I have been working at dressbarn part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a fun place where you can explore how your personality can inspire women to look and feel beautiful through sales. The management is very fun and you feel like you’re apart of a team and family when you work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to keep your hours down when you’re part time with the company. There’s not much growth in the company either.

    I have been working at dressbarn part-time

    Pros

    As a part-time assistant manager I can tell you that I ADORE my staff! However, upper management has no sense of work-life balance and each week they just pile on new crap. The expectations are WAY TOO HIGH and they pay very unfairly. I make a cashiers salary as an assistant manager!!! I also get no benefits! I've been here 3 years and I am frantically looking for a new job that will invest in me and give something back in return for my hard effort. It was fun at first but when you see all the time you invest in your work and have nothing to show for it and can't pay your bills or afford to go on an unpaid vacation you begin to hate it.

    Cons

    No benefits for part-time, heavy work load for very little pay. Keep looking!

    Advice to Management

    Chill out, we are not Nordstrom!

    Pros

    Decent starting pay. Great customers. Quick advancement.

    Cons

    No breaks. Literally, no breaks except a 30 minute lunch for any shift over 6 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Why aren't breaks given? is this against the law?

    I worked at dressbarn part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really liked the management in my store, liked how they were very understanding of scheduling and personal issues. My store leader was great at giving advice. Learned a lot about fashion and met some great appreciative customers!

    Cons

    Too much standing and running around, feet start hurting after awhile, have to dress nice but at the same time you want to be comfortable cause you are moving around so much. Some of the management gets a little lazy sometimes so that was annoying at times. Assigned tasks and wanted us to help customers at the same time which was frustrating. I’m really good at helping customers when I don’t have a task to worry about.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t assign tasks and expect us to help customers at the same time and don’t be surprised when tasking doesn’t get done.
