Productive and Fun working environment
Key Holder/Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TNMay 29, 2015
Pros: Great working Environment
Cons: Short Breaks and Healthcare
Opening the store and being able to help customers fine great new outfits for either casual or evening. Management is great to be with on a daily basis all team players and work well together. Love the new styles that come with every floor set and being able to refresh the floor is one of my favorite things about retail. The hardest thing is being able to not have free expression, in merchandising, which isn't all that bad since we have teams that go out of the way to appeal to all of our customers.

Lead Retail Management (Current Employee), Spotsylvania, VirginiaApril 9, 2015
Pros: Great Inviroment
Cons: No room for advancement
Love my job because of the people. I love helping them feel better about them selves. I love being a personal shopper for them.
Managment is caring and understands that life and family is important and they are flexible when we need time to spend with them. Again, the most enjoyable part of my job are the customers. They are so much fun.

Sales Associate / part time (Current Employee), Broomfield, COOctober 22, 2014
Pros: discount on clothing
Cons: limited to what we can purchase
Love working at J.Jill as it is a positive environment, great team and quality of clothing that makes it easy to sell to customers. The management is flexible with your schedule and the management has been there for a long time, that it makes it difficult to move up in the stores in Denver.

Looking good
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Boston, MADecember 24, 2013
Pros: the job was up the street from where i lived
Cons: being sent home if it was not busy which effected the amount i had on my check.
I would normally check the schedule to see if I wuld be on the floor, cash register or dressing room. I learned how to pick out clothes for different body shapes and how to put a smile on a lady's face if she was feeling down. The management was okay, she was a nice lady. The co-workers were not really abut being a team player, but we all got along great in other ways. The hardest part of the job was stading in one spot for hours. The most enjoyable part, honestly, was practically shopping for the customers. I felt like a personal shopper !

Sales Associate - Low Volume Retail
Sales Associate (Current Employee), GeorgiaNovember 9, 2013
Pros: management at my store is wonderful, sales associates very friendly, warm, very supportive staff
Cons: scheduling all over the place, pay and discount not high enough to afford to "project the j. jill image".
This is not a very busy store - you are catering to a certain type of clientele. Typically there is one manager and one sales associate on a shift. On the weekends there may be two associates and a manager, but there will only ever be one closing associate and one closing manager on weekend schedules.

If you open, you will likely be straightening and cleaning the store, working on "product knowledge", – more... opening new shipments (and there is almost always replenishment or new product) and steaming the clothes that have come in. Most customers (in my area), come in during the afternoon or after dinner, which is when you have the most time to be productive.

If you close, you'll be cleaning the store and straightening, possibly - if you get chosen for this, doing a new floor set, which is done 2-3 times a month. It can get confusing if you aren't chosen for a floor set, because things get moved quite fast, and you have to learn it in order to be able to direct customers to where they want to go, what they want to see, and if you don't know where it is, customers can get impatient.

Working with customers is mostly enjoyable. A lot of it is repeat business due to personal attention, so you get to know a lot of them quite well. You really do become like a personal stylist. The clothes are high quality, fit is pretty great, and women feel good in them.

Store managers are pressured to push their associates to meet credit card goals, individual item goals (scarves, sweaters, jeans, etc), and the stores get docked if they don't sell a certain amount in a certain amount of time. Sales associates can lose hours if they don't meet credit card goals or sell the whole package (shirt, pants, scarves or jewelry, etc).

If people window shop and the sales associates can't make the sale, conversion rates go down, and again, schedules can suffer as a result. – less

Cons: no breaks
For this position I work as an seasonal employee couldn't stay because of school schedule. my responsibilities included handling register, cash and credit card transactions, cross selling store credit card and rewards card, stocking inventory on sales floor, assisting customers with any needs such as inquiries about merchandise not on floor and helping them with proper sizes. I loved working with my coworkers there always a good laugh and loves working with the customers the customers we're usually for the most part usually a joy.
