Executive Assistant to GM Cotton On Asia (Current Employee) – Somerset – October 2, 2015
Learned to be really flexible and to be independent when doing tasks. To be prompt and accurate in task delivery. Able to withstand high pressure and a lot of last minute changes. To think out of the box and be resourceful. I was exposed to many high strategy meetings which gave me insight on how mass retail is planned and executed. Enjoyable part of the job is when I have successfully solved people's problems e.g. getting vendors paid , organizing big events and conferences.
A typical day at Cotton On is Laid-back and cool. I learned great customer service skills. Management and coworkers were fun to hang around. The most enjoyable part of this job was the laid-back atmosphere I was in.
at this job place i basically gave customer service to the guest. I open the fitting room, re-stock, cashier, and closed. this job was pretty easy and i met alot of people due the store being in the mall.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – La Mirada, CA – September 20, 2015
Great working environment if you are looking to hone your skills in developing a business with little direction. Decision making and best practices are left store to store allowing for a lot of trial and error and allowing your business to be specific to your market. Very little follow up or recognition from senior management, and because of the entrepreneurial environment, policies and procedures are constantly changing. In management, don't expect to work less than 50 hours per week.
Management (Former Employee) – Maryland/Virginia District – June 2, 2015
Overall, a good brand. Probably moreso outside of the U.S. U.S. has poor corporate organization. Upper Management does not care about employees. A lot of work for low pay. Constant changes and re-changes. Area-management poor. Unrealistic expectations. Lack of support for front-line workers. Most enjoyable part of the job is the clothing and customers. Worst part of customer service is constant complaints due to unrealistic return/exchange policies.
Great employee discount
Poor area management, expectations, poor benefits and pay
Retail sales associate (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – April 27, 2015
It was a temporary job, for the holidays. It was my first real job, and it showed me the ropes. I set up displays, and kept the store organized for my time there. I enjoyed my time there, the managers were helpful and the coworkers were nice.

Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – March 17, 2015
Work didn't feel like work. I had fun working with my co-workers and the key holders and managers were fun to work with as well. I liked helping people look for clothes that matched their style and helping them in general.
Cashier, Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – February 10, 2015
- A typical day at work was productive and fast -I learned a lot about P.O.S ( point of sale ) system - My co-workers were for the most part great - The hardest part of the job was maintaining the store by yourself at times, especially on busy days! - The most enjoyable part of the job was making customers happy.
I had two very different experiences with different managers. My first manager was more experienced, an excellent multi-tasker, friendly, and knowledgeable. Which made a typical day very scheduled and easy to follow. I did not have the same experience with the latter manager.
