    Pros

    Great people, great culture, opportunity to have voice at any level, free fitness classes offered throughout the day at hq along with free gym, beautiful building

    Cons

    Culture and values of company are changing and becoming more like other large corporations - losing that family and small-company feel. Work-life balance is worsening.

    I worked at dressbarn part-time

    Pros

    Discounts
    Not a whole lot else

    Cons

    No opportunity to move up
    Made you skip breaks if busy or they "didn't think they would stay that late tonight"
    Would send employees on errands to get food for others while on the clock

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees actually have a chance to move up, don't just make them work full time hours without paying them for it or calling them a full time associate.

    I have an amazing manager and staff. Dressbarn really cares about you as a person, you get an awesome discount and great perks for working there.

    You don't always have the same schedule week to week, and you work weekends a lot. But hey its retail, thats just how the industry goes.
