Great place to work
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), El Paso, TXJuly 18, 2014
Pros: wonderful place to grow
I have nothing but great things to say about Dressbarn. I started off as an associate an in less than I year I was promoted to assistant manager. Dressbarn is great place to grow and offers great opportunities for advancement for those who really want it and work hard for it. What I enjoyed the most was the one-on-one relationships we create with our – more... customers. – less

A great company to work full-time for, with very few full-time positions
Sales Clerk (Former Employee), VermontJuly 18, 2014
Pros: discounts on clothing
Cons: short breaks, no benefits for the part-time staff
A typical day of work is a mix of store tidying, clothes processing, and customer service and retail.

I learned how to keep a smile no matter what, to work with diverse clientele and a variety of selling techniques.

Management is in the individual, quite nice. Writ large, the company is very supportive of employees.

My co-workers were all lovely – more... ladies with great smiles and a desire to help, not hard sell, customers.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with disrespectful customers.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping a customer find clothing for a joyous occasion, like her daughter's wedding. – less

Expected to be a janitor too in dress clothes, low pay
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Sarasota County, FlJuly 16, 2014
Pros: customers are nice
Cons: pick one.....management, pay, all around dirty job to be done dressed up?
Let's see, low pay, managers clocking you out then you have to wait on them at end of day to lock up. Cleaning toilets in work clothes, after being on your feet all day! Management favor certain people. We have more managers then workers. 4 managers 3 workers. Constantly changing the store around, and never good enough. So putting clothes back is a – more... puzzle. You are supposed to get half hour break, but if there is just two of you, your lucky to get 10 minutes! Not to leave the building! You don't get a schedule until maybe 1-3 days before, so don't make plans! Always asked to stay over your scheduled hours and are bugged about it till you leave. And don't get me started on the gossip! – less

Pros: inspiring women to look and feel beautiful. great health benefits
My day to day at DressBarn was inspiring. Not only did I get to lead and coach a group of talented sales associates, but the company recognized my behaviors and achievements and rewarded me as such. DressBarn was inspiring because everyday I was able to make difference in each customers experience by providing them with the best service and knowledge – more... and advice I had to give. – less

Keep store clean,dress mannequins in new out fits, sale items to every customer that comes through the door. – more... close store, clean and vacuum, close registers. – less

Okay job
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), in PaJuly 9, 2014
Pros: people
Cons: location
This was the worst working experience I have ever had towards the end. All of management high and low are petty in the way that they do business. This was like going to a all girls high school where if you are like you do not have to work. When I first started I loved the people I worked with and their moral. The manager was a very smart business women – more... who know how to motivate us to get our goals. I can only hope that things get back to what they once were : ) – less

Inspiring company to work for
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Estero, FLJuly 8, 2014
The history and culture behind this company is something that started with the founder Mrs. Jaffe. With the simple mission of "making women look and feel beautiful" every day I knew I was going to make a difference. Day after day, there is one great experience after another that makes everything you do during the day, whether it is shipment, changing – more... visual standards or simple daily operations worthwhile. The team is committed to helping women feel beautiful and are constantly wanting to learn the best fits for different body types as well as styles. The hardest part is when as hard as you try, you are unable to find that perfect item to make her feel beautiful. You still try to make it a great and memorable experience for her though. The best is when you find that perfect dress that she feels great in and the memories that will come with wearing that dress- whether it is a wedding or some other special occasion. – less

Pretty good place to work
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Bristol, CTJuly 5, 2014
Pros: wonderful coworkers
Cons: hours and pay
The company itself is going in a really great direction. For someone who wants a normal kind of life ( i.e. a monday - friday 9-5 ) retail is not for you.

It's Retail
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Township of Howell, NJJune 25, 2014
A typical day is cash handling, customer service, cleaning the store, my assistant managers are great but the store manager isn't that great. My co-workers are really great we all make a great team. The hardest part of my job is that I am not paid enough and I don't get treated very well.

working at dressbarn is based on how you make it
Cashier Sales Associate (Current Employee), Upper Marlboro, MDJune 12, 2014
I've been in the retail industry for 5 years, and working at Dressbarn for 5 years have shown me how to deal with customers and different personalities. Usually Dressbarn is a calm and un active place. but for me I have to make my job at Dressbarn fun by having a positive attitude and finding something interesting to talk about to my co-workers but – more... also the customers. For example if im helping the customer with an outfit i will bring up topics about style by showing them Dress-barn catalogs or other magazines to bring up more interest of what the customer want to wear. The hardest part of the job is to get customers to open up dressbarn credit cards. This task is very hard to do because this is dealing with people's credit and most customers are trying to improve their credit. But regardless i still manage to get customers to open a Dressbarn credit card. however the most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and working with older people. You'll learn alot from working with older people like their personal experiences or dealing with work. – less

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Anonymous, NJJune 2, 2014
Pros: pleasant work environment and good employee discounts
Cons: pay wasn't great
Overall really nice group of women I worked with and for. The hours weren't very good though. Unfair scheduling practices. The pay should have been better considering expectations. Truly challenging to accomplish the myriad number of things that had to be accomplished daily.
