Competitive with who you know
Store Manager/Stock Coordinator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 24, 2014
I worked for the company for 5+ years, one of my favorite places to work, under management. It was always fun to go to work dressed well, representing who I was and who I worked for. You were part of a club, is how I would put it. The coworkers I had were amazing people, willing to work for me and with me, to ensure productivity and high sales. The hardest part of my job was the location I worked at, which was located in the warehouse district of LA. The other hard part of working there were upper management. Very competitive with who you knew, and your lifestyle outside of work, making it quite difficult to move up within the company. The pay was not good, because I was expected to work 24/7. They said do not work from home, however I was constantly answering emails, phone calls, and making sure my store was running properly while I was not there, or else I would be judged on my management skills. I do not mind that type of management, but I would like to be paid like a manager. My overall experience was good, my only advice would be to build a better management team, fully train those who you promote to management, and really believe in those you promote. The company is very flexible with their ideas, but they need to hire people who believe in their company, AND fit their look (since they are strict with that). You can have the brains and the beauty, they just need to train properly.
