Horrible place to work
Store Manager (Former Employee), Lake George, NYMay 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 – more... comfort zones of most people because of how pushy and intrusive you need to be. – less

Great place to work if you're fashion oriented, and love men's clothing.
GENERAL STORE MANAGER (Current Employee), Richmond, VAApril 29, 2014
On a day to day basis as a General Store Manager, life can be interesting, fast-paced, and at times down right enjoyable. I have learned how to keep up with the trends, and completely outfit men of all sizes. My superiors are a team of well trained and knowledgeable motivators who strive on team success. The hardest part about my job is going home, – more... when I still have new looks to create. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing client's faces after you've given them a complete authentic look. – less

Don't work here
3rd key (Current Employee), TexasApril 9, 2014
Pros: works with my school schedule
Cons: short breaks, spend most of the time working alone, hire outside of company and pass up good employees, management sucks
Been trying to escape this company for a while. Company going through reconstruction and demoting people and hiring people outside the company for the position they demote the person for. You get stuck in a position and they consider others before you. Constantly had to train my superior. They just promoted someone that's only been with the company – more... for 2 months while people who have been with the company for years get passed over. They have their picks and won't look your way if you don't fit their vision of the company. No holiday, sick, or vacation days unless you are full time. Even if you work full time hours, you have to do it consistently for more than 6 months to get benefits. They do not care about your well being. – less

Corporate level management needs work.
Assistant Store Manager- Clothing Manager (Former Employee), Glen Burnie, MDJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: new stores and locations
Cons: exceptionally rude customers, poor corporate management
The brand and company itself are solid. Good market with a good product. Unfortunately the company itself is rebranding, again, and it is dealing with growing pains. They are constantly changing pay rates and turning over positions in corporate. This has caused the left hand not to know what the right hand is doing over and over again. They measure – more... you based on numbers but corporate fights against you by offering promotions that make it nearly impossible to reach those numbers (number of units, total dollar amount etc). I interviewed for Assistant Manager, got Key Holder- but still did the ASM job, 3 months later (when the DM was replaced) I got the ASM job. I quit upon discovering I wasnt getting paid the 21$/hr for out of state training that was taking place during a major sales (commission) event, but 12.50$ instead. NOT the company I want to grow with. MANY things could be done better. I recommend any other middle-high end clothing retailer. – less

A great place to work with high standards
Guest Service Associate (Current Employee), Novi, MIOctober 5, 2013
Pros: great products, good co-workers, lots of feedback.
Cons: company standards can seem to be very high.
DXL, formal Causal Male XL, is going through a lot of changes, creating higher quality customer service just being one of them. So they demand a lot for their employees, but it's a great environment to improve your customer and sale skills.

If you want to move up in the company you really have to bring your A-game, work hard, be detailed, learn the – more... behaviors and it doesn't hurt to get to know the various mangers.

Overall I enjoy work for DXL and have learned several new skills that I'll take into any job I get in the future. – less

Great place if you're self motivated & work well alone.
Key Holder (Former Employee), Columbia, MDApril 22, 2013
Pros: decent benefits
Cons: immature management
I have a great & loyal clientele that schedule to come shop with me. There is absolutely no team selling & no supportive staff that encourage your growth here. The hardest part of the job, dealing with other management. The most enjoyable part of the job, giving the most pleasurable shopping experience to every guest.

Great for the most part
Cashier (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYApril 6, 2013
Pros: interacting with customers, pay was above minimum wage
Cons: incompetant mangement, non-challenging, slow business
A typical day at work was slow with not many customers coming in. My co-workers were great. Management was very lenient and incompetent; they barely got anything done. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the few customers that I did come in contact with.
