It’s minimum wage and very limited hours, unless you’re management. They never reno their stores. Old and outdated. If they want a younger crowd of shoppers they need to get out of the older lady styles.

Your typical day includes sign and prices changes, sales, customer service and cleaning. Every new season has a fashion day where employees either choose or have outfits chosen to showcase the new line where customers are able to sit down and be taken through the line with open question and answer period.

I found it unsatisfying to work here because it was very mundane and monotonous.
Pros
half price clothing
Cons
evening shifts seem long as there are fewer clientelle

Extremely poor wages - no matter what your seniority is! You never do enough.
Your raise is 10 cents/h . I am curious what should I do with it!? Ask Lalonie.
Pros
Nice management
Cons
No hours whatever if 3h/ week means anything

Strongest emphasis was on customer service. Responsibility for oversight of marketing, merchandising, and visual presentation were also an integral part of the management position.
Customer demographic is wide and varied and very pleasant to deal with.

Fun place to work!

Great people and company to work for. I just need more constant hours. Would stay if I had steady hours, but they change every week and that is not enough for me.

A typical day starts with review of promos and interacting with clients, finishing with tidying the store. I learned how up-sell things and put together outfits. Management is great, I hear about her, but have never met her. Workplace culture is great, I can't complain. The hardest part of the job is finding things to do. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the clients.

It was an okay place to work. Most people friendly to work with. Most of work didn’t hurt your back. Always got your required breaks. Not enough training for cash.

the managers know what they're doing or who they are sending where you're constantly. Everyone is friendly and enjoys working together. It is very hard though.
