Sales Associate\Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 15, 2017
Decent place to work but the commission sucks. Doesn't matter how much you sell, you will not get any commission. Management is ok, and the food is good.
Pros
attractive place to work
Cons
no commission percentages.

Not a company you can make a career with
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaOctober 2, 2017
Ok place if you are desperate for a paycheck. If you work in a location with a restaurant you will work later hours than you ever have in retail. Recommend working in a location inside a mall that closes at 6 or 7 pm on weekends or you will miss many family events & time with friends. Check the store hours before you apply, unless you like working late nights. Have to wear their clothes, so you will be dressing like your mom or dad. You will work with some nice people and it is no commission so there is no sharking. Lots of cleaning & folding & steaming- felt like a servant. No holiday pay or sick pay which was a big surprise since the lifestyle is about enjoyment. Worked 4th of July and didn't get any kind of additional paid day off or extra pay.
Pros
no sharking on the floor
Cons
not many benefits financial or otherwise

Poor and stressful work environment
Acting Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Huntington, NYSeptember 26, 2017
I feel management does not pay and or treat their employees fairly. They are also given minimal to no hours having no job consistency or reason for them to be happy/ encouraged at work.

A day in the life of Tommy Bahama
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  5th avenueSeptember 22, 2017
A typical day at work is essentially just making sure the customers receive the best experience possible. The typical day is also serving beverages and appetizers while the customers shop.

Pros
Flexible hours, relaxed environment, part of bigger picture
Cons
Slightly below market on pay, Benefits could be a little better

ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Jupiter, FLAugust 30, 2017
Good people and low stress but not many career opportunities. Very much a top down management style that stifles creativity and out of box thinking. Lots of political maneuvering necessary to move forward,

Great place to work
Hostess and Trainer (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZAugust 28, 2017
I really love this company. The management as well as fellow coworkers have been nothing to kind to me and it is generally a fun place to work. It is a bit unorganized, and I feel the pay is not entirely fair. Other than that, it was a fun and upbeat place to work. Would have worked here long term if hourly was hire. (Hostess)
Pros
50% off all meals, and same discount when you come in to eat with friends and family. Flexible with time off.
Cons
Pay is not ideal

Different Retail Environment
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Naples, FLAugust 7, 2017
Tommy brings about a different retail environment than I had previously experienced. Caught between being a 'place to relax' and taking itself too seriously, management has a hard time putting what it wants out into the field. Company needs a serious upgrade on technology. There seems to be much disconnect between stores and home office.
Pros
free clothes, generous PTO
Cons
Short breaks, confusing management, cliquey

Horrible
Busser/Runner/Jucier (Current Employee) –  Manhattan, NYJuly 30, 2017
The main issue with this working place is that there is never any communication and no room for growth when you feel confident enough as an employee. A good starting point but, not good to get comfortable in.
Pros
None
Cons
Plenty

Great place to work. Fun brand and great leaders!
Corporate Office (Current Employee) –  Seattle WAJuly 21, 2017
I absolutely love working for Tommy Bahama. I work in the corporate office in Seattle and there are many great things about working here. First, the brand is fun. Apparel is high quality and we have a strong following of customers (and bringing new customers in all the time). Restaurants are amazing and bring the lifestyle brand together perfectly. Leadership at corporate are the best in the business. Smart, open-minded and humble from the top down. Work/life balance is important to the culture. They really do walk the talk with work/life balance. It is a key piece of the culture here. Other important elements of the culture include a lot of team-work and collaboration. With an all encompassing lifestyle brand you need to make sure there are no silos. Everyone working together, sharing ideas and working toward the same goal. Not to mention, just a super nice group of people to work with. A++
Pros
culture, work/life balance, retail & restauarnt discounts.
Cons
none that i can think of
