    Pros

    Fun working environment! Great employee discount. Developed life long relationships with clients and coworkers. Paul Marciano left great voicemails for the entire staff to listen too!

    Cons

    You have to buy your own clothes (at a discount of course) but with low pay. At times it didn't seem worth it. Wish we made commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More development that leads to actual promotions.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for advancement if you show potential. Fun company to work for especially during events, and long lasting friendships are made.

    Cons

    Work life balance was slim as sales manager. Employees were paid very poorly for the work that was expected of them, and expected to dress in GUESS clothing that was expensive even after the discount. Quality of the clothing went down and the prices went up.

    Pros

    Being a company that's goal-driven, invested in making employees happy, and planning with succession strategies always encourages me to be 100% all the time.

    Cons

    Not specifically the company at but rather very specific co-workers I've worked with (that you would find in any workplace): when people are emotional, it is difficult to stay positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay positive, keep encouraging, always use positive reinforcement, and lead by example. Doing this, and results will come.

    I worked at Guess? part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great discount on quality merchandise
    Competitive environment between co-workers
    Flexible scheduling; Since no one is full time (besides management) you can work as much or as little as you'd like between 4-39 hours weekly.

    Cons

    Black Friday & Holiday scheduling is demanding
    More experienced associates are usually scheduled more hours
    Not commissioned, but you still have to meet sale goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to commission-based pay.

    I worked at Guess?

    Pros

    Nothing whatsoever. Totally unprofessional.

    Cons

    Laid off 11 people, including me, after one day of work which was on Black Friday. We were seasonal hires but we were said to of worked till January. So, apparently, they only hired us for Black Friday (busiest time of the year). On top of that, I had to call them if I had a schedule, but instead they told me "sorry unfortunately...blah blah". Then they told me I got to wait two weeks till I get my pay check. Seriously!? Never going to shop here or apply to work here ever again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better management at the Las Vegas South Outlet Mall Guess? Store.
