    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? full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had some great like-minded teammates. Our cafe was very good. Spin, Yoga, and a fitness room was added benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely structured. Everyone worked from 7-6pm where we had 2 scheduled breaks. I couldn't get coffee at a random time unless it was on a scheduled break. Work-Life balance was not ideal. Exec team had a few great members, but one was very intimidating and could be downright mean. It would make your job very stressful and ALWAYS doubting your work. Overall atmosphere made me very unhappy. Long hours, the room we worked in had no windows, LOTS of pressure.

    Pros

    Is nice to work in GUESS? Factory, you have 40% employee discount for regular price items and the markdowns are really good.

    Cons

    Depends on the store (mine is a slow-paced store) you can have from 15hrs/weekkly to maybe 20-25hrs/week (shifts are 5hrs shifts). Just for an extra income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentives...
