Suggestions for improvement

  • I would have bonuses offered monthly instead of bi monthly and employee reviews twice per year. I would have all store managers and assistants promoted from within instead of hired from outside. More staff would make things run much smoother as well.

What I like about the company

Working in my particular store is like finding a second family. You grow close to the people you spend 8 hours a day together in a small room.

What I dislike about the company

They do not reward loyalty to the company. Very little promotions available in a store unless you have an in with someone above you. Raises are about 15 cents per year and bonuses are scarce. There is no holiday pay and being sick inconveniences everyone else so much you feel guilty for doing it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Upper management that is not as judgmental. More sales needs to happen in the store. Lost a lot of business due to not having sales as other companies do. Think about the staff in the store also instead of just the business and their needs

What I like about the company

It was a fun place to place to work. Great job for college kids, retired individuals, if you have older kids. Positive place to work

What I dislike about the company

Micro managing from upper management and unwillingness to listen and accept other experiences. Upper management would base everything, far as achieving results, from one store and not factor in the different demographics and that every store and the people that come in those store are different and would say mean and hurtful comments to managers in the store if they did not perform to their liking. Upper management wanted "yes men" instead of hearing and accepting the truth. Upper management was not understanding to personal issues such as people being sick, injuries on jobs (some were not reported and witnesses were there to see that they did happened), having childcare issues, deaths in families where manager could not take off to have time with family in fear of getting written up or in trouble with upper management. Upper management only concern is the business, sales and how it looks to the customer and not very much about the employees in store. Upper made employees very uncomfortable every time visits happened and that is not good.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to realize that not all of their retail stores are the same. Every store has a different clientle and an outlet store is not the same as a boutique store. if you are going to have an outlet store there should be more a difference between the outlet and the boutique, not just in pricing but also in employee expectations.

What I like about the company

They provide opportunity for growth within the company

What I dislike about the company

The changes to their employee appearance requirements were more targeted at female employees than male employees. The changes also made certain things unacceptable that were acceptable when the employees were hired and there was no grandfathering in
