I presently manage a team of 15 associates, including 2 assistant managers. The number one priority of Dressbarn is customer service, which I flourish in. "Inspiring Women to Look and Feel Beautiful" is the company mission statement and I truly feel like I am able to show up and achieve this daily. I have grown considerably with this company by being given the resources and tools to successfully develop many associates in leadership roles, and by being provided with the support and opportunity to expand my knowledge and develop my personal skills. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I am able to invest my time in people; associates, coworkers and customers alike, and I am able to work one on one with my customers and build relationships with them.

Wonderful place to work with enjoyable co-workers. Management cares about its employees. Room for advancement. I went from part-time associate to full time assistant manager. I learned a lot in this role and there are many avenues for learning. Excellent benefits and training. Fast paced environment at times. Very nice customers. Able to express creativity in this environment also.

We had a good management team and crew so it was a nice place to work. Got employee discounts and a good one when first hired. Employees were pushed for sales of course and for signing up customers on the DB credit card.
I really like to work at Dressbarn because it has been a really good experience working with clientele. A good customer service is my priority. I learned and I'm still learning how to help the clienteles with their needs, when it comes to help to pick the right clothes when they don't know how to choose them. Let them know about discounts and how to manage to safe money. The hardest part of the job is when someone really need help, but they don't want any. I really enjoy to work at Dressbarn. I'm really happy to work there.
, A typical day at work , first thing look at the schedule and see whose working,make out your goals for each person, do your daily walk though and move merchandise around if needed.I have learned to do at lot of outreach by working with Dress Barn. The hardest part of the job was being consist with making your credit card goal.I enjoy working with the staff.
The job is very slow so if looking for something to make time fly this isn't for you . Customers are older and some can be grouchy but just keep a positive attitude and it'll be over with sooner or later .
I loved being an employee at Dressbarn, especially working with the great management and team at the Basset location!

The management were great leaders, with a great positive attitude to motivate you throughout your shift and help you reach daily sales goals. Not only were they positive but they helped you out if you needed flexibility due to school or other daily life activities.
Part Time Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Seaside, OR – August 28, 2017
Dressbarn is going downhill. I worked at one location for a year, and then was promised a promotion and raise if I transferred to another location. I accepted, and after 6 months of waiting I finally gave my 2 weeks because I did not get the promotion I was promised (full time) or the pay that I was promised. My fault for not getting it in writing. The company doesn't care about their employees if you stay long enough to find out.
Schedules are changed after being posted without notification. No break unless you work six hours or more. Low pay. Pleasant work environment, customers appreciate assistance with clothing choices. Management doesn't help employees to succeed or advance, only use you to meet their own needs.
Flexible hours, time off requests usually granted
No breaks if you work less than six hours, schedule changes after being posted, no room for growth.
Good friendly coworkers. Gap between top management and managers of departments. Lots of reports and meeting. and still no information regarding company goals and motions. Lots of layoff every 2-3 months. Ability to work from home.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – New Hampshire – August 16, 2017
Low paying even for retail the hours are difficult. They preach work life balance but when push comes to shove your expected to just work it. There are times that are insanely busy and times when there's absolutely nothing to do. Great discount, ultimately not rocket science but there's a lot to juggle.
