Very fun and productive
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: days off when i needed them.
Cons: 30 minute break and hour lunch.
My day began with steaming and hanging clothes, i learned how to become a multi-tasker and people person, management was great understanding very helpful, co-workers were easy to get along with and drama free, job pining clothes on the maniquin at first when i got the hang of it it was a breeze and that was what i enjoyed the most.

Helping Women Dress for Success
Style Advisor (Current Employee), Greenville, NCSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: customer relationship and being a walking model for dress barn.
Cons: not enough hours.
One of the best things about Dress Barn is when you succeed in helping a customer find that perfect dress/top that they were looking for to wear to their special occasion. While interacting with these ladies you build a relationship that keeps them coming back in for repeat business. I have some of the best co-workers that have really pulled together – more... through our changes in management. An intergral part to any successful company is having everyone work together as a team, where everyone pulls their weight. I love being a part of my Dress Barn team. – less

Sometimes I miss working here
Part-Time Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee), Mechanicsville, VASeptember 6, 2014
Pros: clothes, helping people
Cons: benefits
Even though I didn't stay long at dress barn(about 3 years and was my first job), I learned plenty. I learned how to treat a customer right,re shopping the clothes was fun and a challenge. Red lines were a challenge but fun to do as well . I loved to do the stock/ boxes to see what new items came in! I wish I didn't live to far away, I would have stayed – more... longer perhaps. – less

Wonderful ladies fashion store with great work environment.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Opry Mills Mall Nashville TennesseeSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: great working environment lots of advancement opportunities.
Cons: long drive, no breakroom, and not very competitive pay.
When opening the store I would arrive an hour early in order to take the previous days deposit to the bank and count the registers. I would also check the daily sales goal and assign goals to the employees working that day based on how many hours they would be there, myself included. Then I would do a store walk through and with the opening salesgirls – more... tidy up anything that was missed the previous evening. After this it was time to open up and greet our customers. As the day went in I would keep tabs on sales, call in numbers to our district manager, and make any changes needed to the sales floor or front widows per directive from the corporate office. I learned how to handle employee issues very effectively, as well as make schedules, to interview and spot good employees as well as train them. The hardest part of the job was the transit. It took anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to get to work everyday. The most enjoyable part was being able to help customers find exactly what they were looking for. My coworkers were very pleasant and hardworking. The management was excellent. Overall a very wonderful working environment. – less

An upbeat, fun place to work; close relations with co-workers
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VAAugust 25, 2014
Pros: close family feeling work environment, loved it there as a first job, succeeded at my goals
Cons: no benefits due to my age
Once the store was opened for the day, my manager would give each employee working (opening shift just one associate & one manager; afternoon shift 2 associates & 2 managers - during shift change; closing shift one associate & one manager after shift change) some tasks to complete i.e. wall displays to set up, re stock racks, put table displays together, – more... sensor clothing; while helping customers as they needed.

I learned to multi-task better, customer relations skills, better focused my team work skills, different ways to make bold fashion statements.

My managers and co-workers were all very close with each other, we formed a sort of family. Helping out when one couldn't work due to family emergencies or babysitting issues, etc. My manager and asst. managers were very goal oriented and helped us to achieve our sales goals in all ways possible.

The hardest part of working at Dress Barn was being the youngest there and trying to cater to an older clientele, I was always fashionable and had positive feedback from customers but it was hard being a younger woman trying to help focus on mid 30 to 60 year old customers.

I feel the most enjoyable part of my job was building those relationships with the customers and having them happy with the outfits or pieces they walked out of the store with, all while maybe up-selling and making my quota. – less

Good place to work
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Oxford, ALAugust 8, 2014
My co-workers consist of only four other people so we are a tightly knitted work group. They are great people and would give you the shirt off their backs. I've learned a lot about style and fashion and how to handle money a little more. The most enjoyable part of the job is satisfying hard to please customers... gives me a sense of accomplishment. – more... The hardest part would have to be during a store flip and everyone isn't the happiest of campers. Even though I work part time I get a lot of hours and a good paycheck. – less

Great place to work BUT...
Assistant Buyer (Current Employee), Mahwah, NJAugust 6, 2014
Pros: non stressful work environment
Cons: little room for advancement
Company has an amazing history with the founding family still working there. Just moved into a state of the art, beautiful and inspiring building. Corporate culture gravitates to helping employees, especially in their time of need. Its such a good company to work for that people never leave.....which is why promotion or advancement is far and few.
