Key Holder (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 20, 2017
Productive work place. Can be a good environment depending on the people you work with. There's opportunity to make decent money for a college student or retire. Not enough workers and hours seems to be an issue.

I was only at DXL for a few months but I was not impressed with this companies corporate culture. Managers lacked retail knowledge and how run their store(s) effectively.

Great guests -- not so great management
Assitant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Westminster, COJuly 9, 2017
Management has its ups and downs but they expect a lot with out a word of encouragement to the employees when they are going above and beyond for the guest and company.

Guest experience is the biggest perk to the job. Having the ability to help the guest achieve the best image of themselves is very rewarding.

A nice place to work
Cashier (Former Employee) –  New York StateMay 21, 2017
It is easy to learn and easy to grow in the company. Co workers become a family away from home. The customers are always nice and willing to work with you.

Great leadership development enviornment
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.

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

I'd reconsider applying..
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
