lots of standing up management was okay not very helpful sometimes co-workers were the best part of the job. co-workers were like my family. hardest part of the job was dealing with the unnecessary drama and stress.

it a good place to work , if you in too suits and nice garments. I love their traveler shirt non wrinkle , iron free. typical day consist of calling customer to let them knows their tuxedo is ready for pick up
A typical day at Jos a Bank consist on trying to find the best suit or separate for the customers take measures to have it sent to the tailor. I learned a great deal about customer service and satisfaction, how to become a great salesman, the managers are super down to earth best people you will ever meet will help you every step along the way co-workers are smart and friendly. the hardest part about the job is trying to make the sale but at the same time is the most enjoyable since you have to help the customer notice what is the right choice of style for the occasion.

Beginning with the purchase of Jos A Bank by The Mens Wearhouse in 2014 the company has shifted its focus away from Customer Service in favor of getting the highest average dollar trasaction per customer.
Sales Associate and Key Holder (Former Employee) – Foley, AL – April 13, 2016
It was rewarding to make customers happy by helping them find the right products. There was opportunity for advancement. Managers were understanding, and easy to work for. However, they did not always posses the best managing skills in dealing with problems. Everyone was a pleasure to work with, and had the same goal of achieving high sales for the store. The turn over rate was high, and it was difficult to find quality employees. The pay was not great, and some of the procedures in place by the company made the job harder than it should have been.
Customer service experience, Rewarding job, Learning experience
Low pay for high job expectations, Not an overall great corporation
Seamstress (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – April 8, 2016
Management just cared to get their work done, always pushed, I could not take breaks sometimes and they were still not happy. Always did more then they asked, always changed what they wanted. Management got changed all the time.
I'm just gonna list everything I feel is a joke about this company. And I hope somehow their corporate HQ reads this.
First off when I started working here it was great, I had management helping me, and the customers were awesome to work with.
I soon switched to a store located in Naples, FL. Worst mistake ever. Management was a joke. I was interviewed by the new regional for a full time position. The regional claimed that he "never hires anyone full time" until they prove them self otherwise... That was the first problem. Second problem was that somehow someway it took them over a week to get me into their computer system to be able to ring people out. A friend of mine worked at another location and went back to Banks around the same time and it took him a day to get his log in. So with no number, I had to work a week at $5 an hr with absolutely no commission or any reimbursement for the sales that I had lost. Not to mention, during that time, my so called "store manager" told me that he would be the one to help throw me some sales to make up for the lost money that first initial week back. Which he didn't. He never threw me a sale. He would take sales, knowing that he makes about 70K a year, but continued to take his 3% commission instead of helping me or anyone else in the store.
That was just the beginning. As time went on I started to learn that he didn't know his job one bit. He would have other managers close on certain days so he could have them do his paperwork. He would harass me about the other location I worked at, asking questions that did not pertainmore... to his store or way of working. He would make you do uncomfortable things in the store with customers because that's how he felt it needed to be done. The best part was, he claimed and claimed that he was the reason that the store had turned around. Sadly every employee he has hired (that didn't work there before he came) has either walked out or quit. Before he came the store was doing about 1.8M a year, and about a 150% on travelers crease. Since then the store volume has dropped to about 1-1.2M a year and the travelers crease is at about 50%.
The one thing I found most interesting about this company though, is the lack of knowledge of their employee's at corporate. No background checks are done. NONE. No drug screenings are done. Absolutely nothing is done, and this is a corporate company! One of my managers was a child offender... HOW DO YOU LET SOMEONE LIKE THAT WORK IN A STORE? And let them work there for at least 2-3years none the less.
Ever since men's wear house bought them, things are a night mare. Terrible pay, and unhappy customers, with absolutely no way to make good money (unless you are working by yourself) and absolutely no room to grow and move up in the company.less
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – March 15, 2016
Jos A Bank in in the process of liquidating almost 100 stores and closing their doors. EVERYONE at Jos Bank is looking for a new job or just retiring. The Jos A Bank name and reputation is through. It is a horrible work environment so don't even bother working there...but do wait for liquidation sales coming soon!
It is an easy and comfortable place to work in, however, the salary is not very competitive and you either get paid your hour salary or the commission not both. There is also not a lot of room for overtime or many growth potential within the store
Great leadership, team work, and very organized. I learned how to do different task in a warehouse. Management was very professional. Co-Workers was the Best team members. The hardest part of the job was the traveling around the warehouse.
