Great Place to Work
Merchandise Associate (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 13, 2017
Great company to grow at, since it's a start-up and you are able to test the waters in different departments. They expect you to live and breathe the company, so life outside of work doesn't always exist.

Fun, young, sales oriented workplace
Stylist (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 8, 2017
Fun job, but difficult to find work/life balance. Guaranteed salary and commission. Flexible hours, depending on manager. Normal hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily with additional appointment times on weekends, nights, etc.

Low Moral
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 23, 2017
If you are not a stylist, photographer, or upper management consider yourself nothing to this company or the CEO. Anyone working in the warehouse doing the real grunt work they don't pay you anything in Chicago.
Pros
free alcohol
Cons
40% off clothing

Terrible job and terrible hours for terrible pay

STYLIST/SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 12, 2017
A typical day at work included prospecting new business and in-house appointments. Management at this location was not necessarily bad, but they could use a few relationship-building improvements.Workplace culture was a challenge, as it was not very diverse and sometimes seemed a tad bit fake. Most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with clients! Whether they were prospected or brought in, it was always a pleasure to delight the customer. Hardest part: meeting nearly impossible goals in a bad retail season. Would definitely recommend to the salesperson who just so happens to like clothing, but doesn't like traditional retail.

productive workplace
wearhouse worker (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 2, 2017
There was music that played throughout the workplace which made it a relaxed environment. We had events where we would compete with the other departments like spirit week the winning department received a pizza party. We had our annual company BBQ which allowed bonding outside of work hours with games and prizes. This company tried different ways to build team building as well as company goals I have to say after working with them for so long it was an excellent company and i am proud to have worked for them.
Cons
There was a little bit of favoritism in the company

Overall fun place to work with more drawbacks than perks
Stylist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 21, 2017
Trunk Club's pitch is stellar but actually working at the company is much less fun than they make it seem. Ridiculous sales goals make it difficult to get comfortable at the job and the help you're given to ease you into the workflow is lacking. You meet some great people during the struggle, and unlimited free wine is always nice, but those things don't mean much when you're working 13 hour days and weekends trying to make ends meet.
Pros
Free liquor
Cons
poor work life balance, ridiculous sales goals, questionable leadership, petty in office squabbles, little to no job security

Bad invironment to work it (DC)
Stylist (Client Relations Representative) (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 1, 2017
They look down on you if you leave work "on time". There is no such thing as work/life balance. You are expected to work night/day before work & after work.

Managers are constantly playing favoritism and the rules don't apply for all

Its basically a Sorority. You are in or out.

Very hostile environment to work in.

We all understand its a sales job and are all here to make money not friends. It gets difficult when the person managing you makes it even harder to meet your goals by making up new rules on the spot that does not apply to ALL employees .

They appreciate employees that kiss managements behind more than the people that work hard to make their goals.

They don't pay you enough for what you are expected to do.

The turnover is unbelievable. You are always expecting to get let go for whatever reason they want to come up with.

Once a person leaves, Quality leads are distributed between managers and their favorite employees.

ALL THIS DRAMA for MINIMUM WAGE? Absolutely not worth it.
Pros
Brand awearness, company carries unique designers for challanging body types, awesome clients, Only "high-end" fashion stylist job you could find in the area unless you start your own business
Cons
Sorority drama 24/7 for Minimum wage

Returns Lead 2 (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 29, 2016
Setting up the days workload. Ensuring associates are scheduled correctly in order to hit daily, weekly and monthly goals. Coaching and developing associates to advance.

Working at Trunk Club I have really polished time management and leadership skills. Learning how to motivate each and every one of my associates to set them up for success.

Management is very transparent and always willing to lend a hand. Subsequently, my coworkers are really what make it fun to come into work everyday.

It can get difficult dealing with so many different personalities, but that is what makes the job fun. It teaches you a lot about yourself as well.
