    I worked at dressbarn part-time

    Pros

    Discount on pretty clothes. Wonderful customers

    Cons

    This is not every dressbarn. These are experiences I had. Lots of gossip, no training but expected to know everything, no matter how hard you work or how possitive you are they find a way to knock you down. It does no good to call corporate because they always take the store managers side even if she lies through her teeth. And even with other people in the building unhappy as well. When you snap they act like you're the crazy one.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your phone, do some real training and nuturing. Not only for the people you want to help but everyone. Especially when they are giving you 100%. The CSTAT numbers don't lie
