Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Allen Park, MI – March 14, 2014
Dressbarn was a really fun job. What I liked the most was that this company hires from within, so I always knew if I continued to work hard, I would be able to advance. I learned how to be a team player, and also how to handle difficult customers. The hardest part of the job was when I could not get through to the customer, or help them enough.

Dress Barn was a very team oriented workplace. My team made it very fun for me to work there and I always looked forward to coming into work. It's very customer focused which helps you develop a connection with the customers.

My favorite part of my job their is to help Woman Look and feel beautiful. Just because they are a plus size doesn't mean they cant look great and feel powerful. I want them to have a great shopping experience.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Layton, UT – October 5, 2016
Expect to be on the floor for hours in heels, climbing ladders to change signage. Floor set are done almost monthly. which means caring tables around that weigh over 40 pounds. to new areas in the store 12 of them .You also have the job of cleaning the public restroom, vacuuming and washing windows at close. Also with heels and nice clothes on. Your expected to wear necklace, earrings bangles and always have on lipstick. Store branding. I loved the manager I had and the ladies I worked with. But they can choose to do what ever they want and put new managers in and send other managers (For there growth) Even if they don't want to leave. Higher Management can play with peoples lives to their own desires. Worked there several years, loved the customers, and the team. But don't ever get settled in thinking that the hard work will pay off.
Sales Associate and Customer Service (Current Employee) – Round Rock, TX – September 27, 2016
I would stay with this job forever....if I could afford to. Sadly, 8.95 an hour won't keep anyone living long, especially a part-timer. The benefits are wonderful....if you're full-time....sadly, i am not...and they aren't hiring full-time for anything. The associates are all wonderful individuals who are delightfully unique and quirky in their own ways.
Customer service orientated job with opportunity to advance

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.
