Unprofessional
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Auburn, MAFebruary 12, 2017
Unreliable pay wage. Does not care about employees benefits. Was not giving any new skills to learn from. Was always asked to do the store managers work load.

Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORJanuary 29, 2017
Learned leadership skills to further career.
Transparency between upper management and field associates is exceptional.
Hardest part of the job is working with a small staff and small payroll.

Just a Job
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 2, 2017
It is a retail job that makes bonusing almost impossible with ineffective marketing campaigns and very little room for advancement. Very redundant work that isn't challenging.

This company was a growing family and taught me how to always please the customer through great service. We sold different clothes so selling clothes you are able to build a relationship with the customer .

A company that you can grow with
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Newport News, VAAugust 29, 2016
Destination XL is the one stop shop for the big and tall man. We provide above customer service and do not say "NO" to any quest. We will make sure every guest needs are met through all channels offered by DXL. Destination XL gives every associate the training needed to succeed and grow with the company.
Pros
training
Cons
hours for salaried employees

Keyholder (Current Employee) –  New JerseyAugust 14, 2016
hourly plus commission rate isn't bad if that's all you're doing, but the company expects you to rearrange the store, do stock, clean and even perform as ASM at times without ASM pay. Sexist customers; forget being a woman and working at DXL, and men only get acknowledged for bigger positions. Don't promote employees within the company. You only get a handful of customers daily and are expected to maximize sales from the traffic you do have, but you are forced to show outfits that half the people refuse to buy because of price objections. Btw not everyone wants to buy a sport coat.
Pros
enjoy co-workers, accommodating manager, new location
Cons
not enough associates, not enough training, dress code, music, no growth within the company, work alone most of the time, high expectations, no employee appreciation, starting pay, commission structure

This is a company in that is trying to build a culture but lacks some direction in regards to internal communication and training and promoting from within. Dxl stores are treated very different from casual male stores

The workers there are very cooperative. They all help each other especially in one's weakest area. The job responsibilities were not too overwhelming.

GUEST SERVICE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAJanuary 8, 2016
Awful people. Very sexist team and remarks from said team. Women were treated very lowly. Company as a whole is not bad. Would not work here again. Had team disputes for no reason.

Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 12, 2015
Big and Tall men's clothier where customer service and reading into your guest is key. Great merchandising, wonderful one on one service, custom tailoring, easy rewards program, make this place the best to shop and work. One can succeed with a strong sales background since most of the jobs are commissioned. This company is growing so there are chances for and room for growth in ones career.
Pros
discounts for employees, flexible schedule, chances to move up
Cons
must be in sales to make any money
