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.
Customer service orientated job with opportunity to advance
Manager (Former Employee) – Walker, MI – September 5, 2016
Working here is never boring; there's always an opportunity to meet a new customer and tailor your sales approach to their individual needs. a sense of current fashion trends is a must as well as a positive attitude.
Flexible schedule, great benefits, employee discount
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Lakewood, WA – August 11, 2016
I loved working for a company who really focused on making women feel good about themselves. I grew the most in my management strengths here. I worked in 5 different stores around western WA, even ran a store for 3 months with no store manager. Due to a significant knee injury/surgeries, I was unable to continue the physical aspect of visual merchandising.
Typical retail job, customers are what makes your day depending on their attitude. New store "leader" doesnt do much leading. Cut hours down to half of what they used to be, so payday isn't very exciting anymore. Espeically when you're trying to get your stuff together to be on your own. Co-workers and assisstant managers are awesome! Super nice, and make you feel very welcome. Really an easy place to work, great company to work for, good environment overall.
Associate (Current Employee) – Champaign, IL – July 31, 2016
Good company to work for. Love the people and the discount. The work flow is good. I like to keep busy and if we don't have customers I find things to do to keep me busy. I feel everyone should work as a team.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – July 19, 2016
I loved working at Dressbarn because I worked with a team that was very friendly and helpfully directive. It was my first sales associate job, and my coworkers were very helpful in helping me learn what to do. My manager was always very kind, when I was faced with a problem, she would never get upset, but rather offer suggestions or solutions as how to resolve the issue. The only thing that I thought could be better about the job was that because we had so small of a staff. that the hours were not very flexible.
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Tulalip, WA – July 17, 2016
My managers worked with me to help me break out of my shell and excel at customer service. I gained confidence making sales and getting feedback for continuing to do good work. I loved the fast paced environment on busy days and that there's always something to do. The hardest part is just juggling serving customers with other tasks related to the job, but there's not an excessive amount of pressure put on associates. My managers were always sensitive and checked in to make sure I wasn't getting overwhelmed. Hearing feedback from customers is the best part of the job. I loved the culture and I'm sad to go.
A very fun and upbeat workplace atmosphere. Management is fair and positive. My most enjoyable part of my job there is helping customers find what they want and leaving the store satified with their shopping experience.
very flexible, understanding, and let's you give your artist visuals or fashion tastes
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Janesville, WI 53546 – July 16, 2016
I truly enjoy and see my self in a career in Dressbarn, they are very flexible, enjoyable, creative, bonding, and they want to see you blossom. Helping customers find a perfect dress for their date or a special occasion knowing that you were the one to boost their confidence in wearing that specific dress/clothing. My manager treats me like one of her daughters, they are truly caring and understanding when you need time off or need specific shifts. The hardest part of the job is trying not to buy all the clothes in the store or when a new set of clothes come in. My coworkers are part of my life and family, they are fun, mature, professional and once again understanding.
they pay for your gas, lunch or hotel if you volunteer to help at another store, discounts in about 5+ sister stores, very flexible
Part Time Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – July 14, 2016
Management sucks! Once I get there the two managers take off to the back and stay back there ALL shift until one needs to leave, yes i understand we are NEVER BUSY but still when we do get busy its just me working.
