Fun workplace, not so productive
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sugar Land, TXJuly 21, 2014
It was always fun to go to work, but sometimes it was just sad. The workplace became a playground, and people started quiting and just walking out.

Fun place to work
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Fresno, CAJuly 18, 2014
Charming Charlie is a newer company, only about 10 years old. The company has recently rapidly expanded and continues to grow. Daily manager tasks include: checking sales, payroll, planning out the day, and on the spot coaching when needed. It is a good place to grow and it is always busy, keeping an employee on her toes.

unprofessional management
assistant manager (Former Employee), bufordJuly 17, 2014
Pros: charmers, customer
Cons: bad management, work hard and no one shows you any appreciation, talked down to by upper management
This job can be great if you are working for the right people. Managers are very childish, step on one another to get to the top, and a lot of favoritism shown. No one shows team work witch is very sad.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brentwood, CAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: fun, girly
Cons: short hours, hired too many people not enough hours.
Charming CHARLIE was a fun place to work. i learned something new everyday about fashion. Everyday was ydifferent which i loved because it always kept you on your toes. The co-workers there were amazing, they were all family. The management was HORRIBLE. They would make the schedule and then write in hours but not call the person to tell them that they – more... got more hours. – less

fun atmosphere and customers, horrible company.
Full Time Assistant Sales Manager/Key Holder (Former Employee), Allen txJuly 4, 2014
Its a great place to work, but upper the company is horrible to work for. The store is a really laid back easy and fun atmosphere, but good luck having a social life. As a manager, you are constantly on call, you are always working late nights, and you are rarely given over time. They tend to cut your hours later on in the week if you have to work a – more... 14 hour shift one day. Over all, i would not recommend this job to anyone. – less

Sale Associate (Current Employee), Maple Grove, MNJuly 1, 2014
Typical day at work is always fun and fast, always ready to work and ask for any work when its really slow at work. I also learn something new at work because my mangers always quiz us on terms that we need to know. For me when I'm working I always plan to do things as quickly as possible so just in case it gets busy, there will be less stuff to be – more... put away. My co-workers are awesome people we always work well with each other, and help each other out when needed, and we always plan a head of who should do what so there won't any miss communication. One thing I love about my job is that its very flexible with me when it comes to going back to school. Another thing I love about my job is that the hours are very good. – less

Very productive during the day but not much to do when the day becomes slow
Charmer- sales associate (Current Employee), Corpus Christi, TXJune 30, 2014
Pros: fun, friendly, clean, safe
Cons: short breaks, no benefits since everybody is part time
A typical day at work requires a whole lot of walking and color coordinating. Everything in the store is sectioned off by color and, withing each color section, all the jewelry is put in place according to their style, so every employee has to be good with, not only color coordinating, but also creativity. The management is really good here and they – more... are actually the type of management who will actually work alongside you instead of stay cooped up in an office all day. The co-workers here are absolutely wonderful and do everything in their power to help you understand everything that this job entails. The hardest part of the job, however, is probably going to have to be keeping up with the dressing rooms and having to put all of the unwanted clothes back - the job is really truly not that hard. – less

Productive and extremely fun workplace
Charmer (Current Employee), Destin, FLJune 25, 2014
A typical day at work would be clocking in, getting a radio, letting your fellow charmers your there and saying the Charming Charlie creed over the walkie talkie. Then seeing were you are going to be on the floor. After that getting out to the floor and start helping customers. Make sure that you provide excellent customer service. The part of the day – more... is going out and helping the awesome customers and the great group of co-workers that have now become your friends. While you are checking out the customers you get to know them and sharing a laugh I would have to say that is one of the many parts of the job. – less

Fun Girly Work Place.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lombard, ILJune 21, 2014
Pros: dicounts
Cons: terrible hours
-A typical day would include opening the store and cleaning around, selling items and just having fun with all the jewelry but also trying to make goals.
-Management was over pretty okay.
-My co-workers were my managers. I never really worked with the other girls but when I did it was a fun time!
-The hardest part was not getting enough hours. 6 hours – more... a week just doesn't cut it.
-Being able to be girly at work was a ton of fun. – less

Lead Cashier/Team Member (Former Employee), Atascocita, TXJune 5, 2014
Pros: the team members
Cons: short shifts, not enough money, no growth
I worked at Charming Charlie for about 3 years. I worked there throughout High School and a little bit afterward. I moved my way up pretty quickly to the lead cashier position. I would tell the girls where they would be stationed for the day over walkie talkies. Customers were our number one priority and I enjoyed working with all of them and helping – more... them pick out something to match them perfectly. I got along great with the managers and the co workers. – less

Fun Place to work due to the People, but slightly unorganized
Temporary Key Holder (Current Employee), Tucson, AZMay 26, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: no breaks, disorganized management team
A typical day includes possible opening the store, completing opening paperwork and counting registers, tending to customers with jewelry options and matches for outfits, maintaining the register drawers, supervising employees on the sales floor, daily management paperwork and hourly sales tracking, shipment processing, upholding visual standards, cleaning – more... the store, possibly closing the store including counting the registers, and finishing closing paperwork and deposit documentation\

I learned a lot on responsibility having a position of leadership, I also learned the importance of structure within the workplace as we have gone without any, I also learned a lot on what it takes to be a good manager and really motivate a team

Management was great when I first arrived, and slowly the management team fell apart, people leaving the company, it left me with the opportunity to step in, but created chaos within the store and dysfunction for the team with no leader

Coworkers are some of my best friends, they are fun, friendly, great at their jobs and respectful people

The hardest part of the job was having to step into a management position with no training, and with no store manager in charge to go to with troubles, having to troubleshoot for myself when I didn't always know the protocol

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with customers to jewelry shop, it's like you're always shopping for jewelry. . .ITS AWESOME! – less
