    Former Employee - Internal Auditor in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    Pros

    Overall, it's the people you end up working with because no matter what, a job in corporate is a job in corporate. Guess had an amazing audit staff and everyone was always so willing to help out and answer any questions you may have had. The hours were pretty great and flexible except during the end of the month.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up or change positions unless someone decides to leave. Don't offer any plan or help for achieving your CPA so you're on your own for that one. Otherwise, everything was great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider providing more intensive training for people at lower levels

    Pros

    Small shifts, entry level experience. Great brand awareness. Only a specific type of person will fit well here.

    Drama, management changing time sheets, bullying, mafia-like behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at who you are hiring and make sure they are more than qualified not just available.

    Pros

    The medical benefits are great. You also get good basic benefits 401K, ESPP and additional restricted stocks or stock options for management.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not the best. The work culture measures a good worker based on the number of hours he/she works. In addition some of the management does not like opinions that question the way things are done.

    Pros

    Good Discount on clothes. While working here, you get 40% everything in the store. On one weekend a month, that discount gets raised to 50% a month. This discount applies to any of the Guess stores. Fun work environment. Most people working there were very nice to one another. High variety of foreign clientele visit this branch, and it is interesting to interact with people of so many cultures.

    Cons

    Pretty mundane and boring work... All you do is fold clothes all day until someone asks you to look for something in the back. Lunch breaks are only 15 minutes long, every 4 hours for part- time employees. 15 minutes is hardly enough time to get food anywhere if you forget to bring your own. Employees of the higher end branches can be very snobby. Hardly got any hours working as part-time, even though I was out-selling the full-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan hours for part-time employees more efficiently.

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, On-site gym, on-site cafe, on-site car wash.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Raises are rarely given, even when performing beyond expectations. Boring. Don't feel like you are working in fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people before everyone leaves. Change product! Workload is overwhelming. there's only a few people in each department where other companies have an entire team dedicated.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great work team, amazing environment, and mind blowing discounts!

    Cons

    Little low on the pay, huge selling expectations, hours for associates depend on the amount of selling they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always be straight up and honest about whatever it is you're doing; don't try to take shortcuts because you will be caught. & always talk to HR or you store manager if there is anything out of the normal going on.
