Pros: easy dress code
Cons: everything else
What a special place this used to be to work and shop. With new guy from Abercrombie, it's like working for A&F. Surprised they don't ask for a photo when you apply for a job like they do at AF. You can be hired at AF with NO EXPERIENCE as a manager and getting promoted at TB is pretty much like that now. Due to the lack of leadership experience required and apathy at store level, there are now lots of checklists to keep everyone on track. But if you just sign off, no one really cares if you did anything or not. The teams in field are all looking for new jobs. Shame on CEO for letting this guy run amok on the culture and tarnish TB history. What was his experience that led you to believe he was a valid replacement for our former president? You have exceptional taste and experience from a product standpoint, but good hiring decisions are just as critical and so far, YIKES! Hours are getting cut, not enough people to do all the work, guests are upset, more YIKES! The founders long sold out, but if they knew how company was being run, they would be heartbroken. Take a look at how many "likes" the reviews addressing the "elephant in the room" has vs all the other reviews in past 2 years. These represent agreement from team members who have to work within this fake AF-like environment every day. I heard the store managers were asked to submit positive reviews on Glassdoor in February and everyone did it because they feared IT would trace who did it and who didn't. Integrity? Authentic to our heritage? Maybe not so much. If you are young and photogenic you have a bright future with TB so go for it! You will probably be promoted to a position that never even got posted!
