Pros

Loved the tailoring position and my relationship with the customers

Cons

Corporate put an extreme amount of demands on the tailors and then you have a store manager that is a control freak, there is no way but out. My blood pressure fell 30 points, 3 days after I left.

Advice to Management

Take a hard look at your guidelines concerning tailoring. You are driving your tailors into the ground.

    Pros

    The clothes are nice. No one pays full price, so at 60% off or more, it's the best quality for the money.

    Cons

    The pay is awful, many employees make minimum wage vs. commission, not plus as they are intentionally led to believe when applying to the job. Only a few months out of the year will most salespeople make enough sales to beat their commission rate, with 80% of sales staff making less than $20,000 per year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living wage to employees if they are expected to promote an upscale image. Attempt to make a positive contribution to the store environment.

    Pros

    Relaxing environment, superb suits offered

    Cons

    company structure on commissions is out of date and pathetic, so many mundane tasks that are not necessary to the company, senior management lives in the dark ages dealing employees and customers

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up dealing with people,do not allow personal feelings to persuade your decision making process, be honest with employees at hiring/interview not disclose misinformation
