I loved working for DXL. The customers were great, watching someone transform and finding their inner confidence let me know I succeeded with my task. Management were awesome, always willing to train and use your strengths to make the environment more enjoyable for all.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Central – August 12, 2015
Not really an outlet. Same exact product at other local stores for half the price. Store manager was an unorganized, selfish person and higher level managers thought he/she was amazing for some reason. Had to work every weekend. Salary was based a lot on commission which was difficult when only 2-3 people even came in store daily to look. Full time is only 30 hours, not even close to 40. Got behind on my bills after only working there for a month and a half during the holiday season.
Assistant Manager / Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Gulfport, MS – July 20, 2015
Mid-stress sales. Partial commission-based wage. Friendship-based advancement into upper management. Very low upper management to local associate communication, resulting in ideas implemented from upper management that don't take into account information only accessible to associates.

Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 26, 2015
A typical day at work, consist of, auditing daily paperwork. Ensuring sales goals and metrics are communicated and giving feedback on how to execute every customer experience. Everyday is a learning experience, learning how to manage different individuals, personalities and still produce goal driven results. I embrace every challenge that I face so nothing is to hard, if you put forth the effort. I enjoy the most, helping people, having them rely on my professional opinion. Making the customer happy is the most rewarding in my eyes.
Freelance (Former Employee) – Canton, MA – December 1, 2014
I had the opportunity to come on board to help the in-house design team with online marketing design. I created email and web ads and visual designs for web pages within the brand guidelines. I also assisted the senior designers with editing and prepping files to then be sent to the web development for coding. I was responsible for finding and obtaining product images and stock photos for the use of these designs. My biggest challenge was learning to navigate through the servers and file naming conventions other than that I enjoyed working with the small team of designers!
My management and coworkers are some of the greatest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone communicates and works with each other with no problem, for the most part.
My day consists of making sure the store looks up to par, helping customers with their needs and showing them pieces to complement their outfits, whatever the occasion may be. I love making my customers happy with their choices and am always honest with them as to what outfits look good on them. My customers love my friendliness and honesty.
At the end of the day, I clean up after my customers and straighten up what needs to be done. If I'm the closing supervisor, I count down all the registers, prepare the deposit for the next day, and make sure any paperwork is accounted for. I make sure we don't leave until the store looks fresh for the next day, but we do so in a timely manner so that hours aren't affected.
fun work environment, am able to develop my merchandising skills with little supervisation
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Lake George, NY – May 20, 2014
Worst company I have ever worked for. You work most days all alone and have to do everything yourself because they won't allow you enough payroll hours to support your store. You aren't even able to take meal breaks most days or go to the bathroom unless your store is empty and you can lock the door. Their customer service standards...ABE....is overstepping comfort zones of most people because of how pushy and intrusive you need to be.
