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

    Pros

    great discount, flexible hours, quality clothes, friendly customers, team oriented atmosphere

    Cons

    management doesn't have enough support from corporate, management shares too much personal information with other employees, there are only 2 registers and customers can get irritable if the lines are long, management sometimes takes unpacking new shipment or setting up displays as priority over customers.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure ALL customers come first and that ALL customers are being helped; don't spend too much time on one customer to the detriment of other customers. Don't share so much of your personal life details with your employees, don't talk about employees with other employees
