    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.

    Pros

    Empowering women to feel and dress their best. Introducing the power of product details that flatter no matter what size can brighten up faces with a smile. Positively impact her day.

    Cons

    Obviously retail positions require working nights, weekends and holidays. Also internet shopping is on tbe rise creating issue of job security.

    Advice to Management

    Share your talents, skills, and knowledge to maintain a high team moral that stimulates positive growth personally and financially for both individual and company.

    Pros

    You work in small teams, so you get to really know your co-workers and makes work more enjoyable. Most of our customers are regulars who come in often, we get the chance to know them and help them find clothes they love. There is an incentive program to make daily sales goals. If you want, you can move up the latter from stylist to management.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best. It is not possible to live on the salary unless you are full time. Policy's are constantly changing, so you must stay up to date om them.


  5. "Good Company"

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

    Pros

    You get a 40% discount on regular price items and a 20% discount on clearance.
    Everyone I've worked with has been lovely. Good environment to be in, flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Don't hire often enough. My store has been losing employees thanks to school and professional job offers. We haven't hired anyone else since, and it's difficult to find people to cover your shift when everyone has limited availability.

    I worked at dressbarn part-time

    Pros

    The pay was good enough to stick around for several months. And they worked around my other job and full time school schedule.

    Cons

    Policies changed constantly. Employees were negative people. Had to be all over customers, even when customers clearly wanted to be left alone. Had to fill out ridiculous surveys all the time. The entire store was rearranged at least once a month.
    Expected way too much for a part time asst. Manager job.

    Pros

    Wonderful store with training on product information and how to creat stylish outfits with the Power of 3. Dressbarn has a well designed plan to help Stylists be successful in sales and in developing loyal customers. Stylists become an important part of customer decision making.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than any other boutique type shop. Even store leaders are not paid competitive hourly wage.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and offer partial benefits to part time staff after they complete 90 day’s. This incentive would help Dressbarn keep the best and brightest employees.
