On an average day at Justice, I'd make sure the clothes were folded and in their proper place, greet customers, and assist customers with any questions. Justice taught me a to always be on my feet and ready to go once i clocked into work. The hardest part about my job was to be able to remember where each item was when a customer asked for its location. – more... The most enjoyable part of my job was having a productive environment. – less
Great for a first job but not an awesome place to work.
Brand Representative (Former Employee), Clifton Park, NY – February 19, 2014
Pros: good pay, if you like working in retail this is an awesome job
Cons: not enough hours, co workers talk behind your back, always gets slow, most days are boring, music
This job taught me how to do freight which I learned to love. I love sensoring and de sensoring things. When I first started working there I got great hours and the training was helpful and fun. It's a really easy place to get the hang of. But after about 3 weeks I stopped working at register. It seemed like they were doing everything they could to – more... keep me off register, freight, but mostly greet which is the most boring thing on the planet. After that, I just stopped getting hours all together. I worked there for about 1-2 months after that and in all of those 2 months I worked once, and thats only because someone called me and wanted me to take their shift. The store has odd hours because no parent comes in with their child at 9 so we just sit there at the register if theres no replenishing or cleaning to do. Its like this on slow days too, like sunday or monday. If I was doing something wrong in the workplace, they didn't tell me they just stopped giving me hours so I eventually quit. – less
Was a cool place to work and very fashionable which i liked.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Riverside, CA – February 13, 2014
Pros: we all got along great, we worked as a team, and it was fun to go to work.
Cons: no benifites, really short breaks, and not alot of hours were given periodically
A typical day working at Justice would consist of costumer service, suggestive saling, and interacting with my co-workrs. Being that it was my first job i learned a lot about the working world alone. I learned how to comunicate better with people, more about the fashion world and also how to be more of a professional individual. Management was great – more... at Justice, very patient and informative with each of the employees. I can only remember us switching store managers one time which was also great. I had good relationships with all of my coworkers, some more personal than others but we all got along great. The hardest part about working at this job was meeting our sale goals on days when it was not busy at all. Our store and hours would suffer because of that which meant very little hours. The most enjoyable part of this job is when our sale goals would be sky high and we would be rewarded for it, also making the costumers experience a great one. – less
Justice, Cashier and Customer Assistance (Former Employee), Greenville, SC – February 11, 2014
I loved helping our customers pick out clothes for their daughters, granddaughters or any other little girls in their family. The looks on the girls faces were priceless, they absolutely loved the store.
Brand Representative (Former Employee), Waterford, CT – February 6, 2014
The six months I spent at Justice were great for my first job in retail. This is a company that caters to Tween girls every day life. I was hired a short time after I had my daughter, and being thrown into a world that I knew would once be my own was very exciting. I learned how to talk to my customers, from little girls to mothers and grandmothers. – more... I learned a lot about each specific customer and their needs, how to approach and finalize a sale, and most importantly how to serve customers with speed and efficiency. My responsibilities were not large- register, figure eight cleaning, and floor resets. At first I enjoyed the little responsibility, but after learning so much so fast, I was really eager to move up. Unfortunately, there was not a higher position available at that time, but the experience was an awesome "first", and I would highly recommend it to anyone in search of a fast-paced, colorful, and fun position. – less
Assistant Sales Leader (Current Employee), Colorado – February 1, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: bad pay
Not my favorite place in the view of the way the company is run. Associates are WAY underpaid and the company doesn't appreciate their associates enough - makes it hard to come to work happy and motivated when you don't feel appreciated.
Brand Rep (Former Employee), Boardman, OH – January 30, 2014
Pros: organized, rewards and a great team to work with
On a day to day basis you walk into a fun and exciting atmosphere. The music is always pumping and they associates are nice and helpful. The store is very clean and organized and the management is excellent.
loved answering phones it was a fun fast paced job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hurst, TX – January 30, 2014
Pros: got paid lunches which was nice and got to sit down and work on computers
Cons: had to sit down would have been nice to be able to get up and stretch more often.
sat in a cubicle there was no getting tired. some days it was busy some days it wasn't. management was wonderful at this job. the enjoyable part was getting the funny people on the phone the least fun was when you got an irate customer on the phone.
Can Be Great Place to work if they make some minor changes!
Store Manager (Current Employee), New Jersey – January 21, 2014
Pros: great health benefits
Cons: overworked and no balance for work/home life
Justice is a company that has come a long way as far as improving the work environment and I honestly would probably not have anything negative to say if it was not for some critical changes that I feel needs to be made. My issues are turnover with management. As a store manager for Justice I am responsible for a lot and when I lose a manager I lose – more... the assistance that I would usually get with that manager on board. However, Justice expects you to go out and recruit and network and find candidates to fill these positions. No problem, but it gets hard to find the time to do this while staying within payroll and not affecting the coverage level for the day along with completing the days tasks. Another issue I have is unrealistic expectations when it comes to visits from corporate and even sales goals at time. You are expected to be prepared 100% for a visit from corporate during the busiest times of the year and the payroll overage that comes with the prep for these visits still count against you when you are reviewed at the end of the fiscal year. Also having 2 justices 10 mins away from each other makes it really hard to maintain sales when the customer base is spread out. I work in Jersey and there are so many Justices. The money is being spread thin. Grateful for the opportunity I received from Justice but really wish that I did not have to feel like I need to be there 24 hrs to accomplish a lot. – less
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Riverside, CA – January 16, 2014
after 3 months of being employed with this company i became a manager. everyday we meet a different type of girl, no two are the same. I've learned how to become a strong leader with this company. the hardest part of my job is keeping everyone and everything in balance, which is normal for any management position. between training, customer service, – more... time management and tasking, the time flies, which is also one of the enjoyable parts. my favorite part about working for a company geared to little girls is that i do get to make a difference to every girl who walks through that door. watching them light up as they walk in. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Woodbridge, VA – January 16, 2014
The manager at justice is barely ever there! There's two assistance managers and one of them is very hard to deal with. Throughout the month I worked there, I've had to count to 10 numerous of times because if not, I would've lost my job and went to jail because of how irritable the assistant manager is.
They have favorites as well. If you're new, – more... expect to be sent home when it's a slow day, also be prepared to not have more than 4-5 hour shifts every 3-4 days.
It isn't a welcoming place to work, they don't make you feel "at home". There is no training involved either. Once you're hired and go through orientation, your first day, you're on your own. Good luck. – less
Supervisor (Current Employee), Miami, FL – January 13, 2014
Justice is a place where little girls go and shop. Our mission statement is to increase the self esteem and for the little girl to have a nice experience. I've learned a lot of things while working here, and continue to learn day by day. It truly is a pleasure to work with everyone here. Positioning merchandise was the big challenge at first, but like – more... everything in life practice makes perfect. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Freehold, NJ – December 30, 2013
Cons: bad schedules, terrible management
My experience working at Justice was a complete nightmare! The way the managers treat you is terrible, and unless you were apart of a small group of girls who the manager favored, your hours were maybe a day(4 hours) a week, you were worked harder then other girls, and you were not treated the same.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Monroe, LA – December 7, 2013
Pros: discounts of products
Cons: short breaks
My typical day at work was pretty easy . I learned how to do freight and give great customer service. My co-workers were helpful whenever I needed them. The hardest part of the job was freight. The most enjoyable part of the was being able to put a smile on a customers face.
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Current Employee), Medford, MN – December 2, 2013
Pros: were all like a family we get along great and keep work with work and at home with at home.
Cons: short breaks, long stretches before a manager gets a day off.
I assign all of our brand reps that are scheduled that day a task for the day. Whether it is doing freight or being a cashier or doing tasks on the side. I also let all of our employees know what are goals and promotions are for the day. How we can do customer add-ons and make sure that all of our customers go home happy. I've learned how to be a quick – more... decision maker whether its with a customer being unhappy or where we are going to put out our new product. The hardest part of my job is having to work 7-9 day stretches before we get a day off. The most enjoyable part of my jobs is when we can make our team goals for the day and our employees and customers go home happy. Being in a management positions you tend to make a lot of sacrifices so you keep your company running correctly. Having to come in our your day off because someone did not show up. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJ – November 20, 2013
Justice is a little girls clothing store, I basically was a cashier and sales associate. I greeted customers that came in and helped them find whatever it was theyre were looking for. Best part of my job was watching the little kids leave with a smile on theyre face because I helped them pick out their outfit.
