Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lexington, KYSeptember 17, 2014
A typical day consists of working the cash register, processing freight, answering phone calls, greeting and helping customers. Love my co-workers and managers. Most enjoyable part of my job is making a customer feel good about themselves when trying on clothes.

internship-Jr. Graphic Designer (Current Employee), Suffern, NYSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: green cafe in the building, free fitness center, atrium, beautiful architecture, family culture
Cons: nonfrequent promotions
Dressbarn was the first corporate job i've had since graduating Rutgers University. Coming from an elementary school as a computer teacher the transition to junior graphic designer intern wasn't much of a transition as the culture i experienced along with it. Fellow coworkers showed true compassion and interest in each person that worked there and there – more... was more of a solidarity quality in the office among departments rather then competition. We all worked towards a common goal, while being understanding and eager to have a work/ home life balance that would only be truly reflective of the hard work and dedication to this historic brand of dress barn. The company was founded by a trailblazing woman and her husband and grew into a billion dollar business which alone is truly inspiring. The transparency among the executive team to every position throughout this company made me proud to work for such an impressive roster of inspiring individuals. – less

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
