Sales Associate (Current Employee) – East texas district – October 18, 2017
Started as a second pt job and at first it was great, after proving myself as a top sales producer my hrs started to go down. The last two months I can barly make ends meet so had to seek another job. I'm still the top producer becuase I believe in myself and overall the company. After being passed over twice for a supervisor job another co wants to hire me as a supervisor. Like any job if you have good managment and apply youself you will do great. I wanted to move forard with this co but I've got bills to pay and minimum hrs to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – California – October 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.
Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 4, 2017
Working here really did feel like working with family, it was small and it felt like we all rose and fell together. It was nice to be treated like an adult with core hours, and flexible arrival and departure times for your day. We worked hard building the lifestyle brand and we had fun!
Flexible hours, relaxed environment, part of bigger picture
Slightly below market on pay, Benefits could be a little better
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,
Hostess and Trainer (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – August 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)
50% off all meals, and same discount when you come in to eat with friends and family. Flexible with time off.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Naples, FL – August 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.
Busser/Runner/Jucier (Current Employee) – Manhattan, NY – July 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.
Corporate Office (Current Employee) – Seattle WA – July 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++
