a typical day at work we learned all the time, we would always be helping our clients be happy and leave successful from our store. Our teammates were really helpful to each other and we were willing to help each other in case we were having a hard time with something. The hardest part of the job was having to manage to keep the store clean and at the expectation of the management due that it was a busy store and time of season. The management were good, until it got to a point that they were having problems with everyone.
Pros
good discounts, nice clothing
Cons
short breaks, management, and low pay

Middle mgmt. turns over frequently. I’ve been there 18 months, had a great annual review and make about the same as a brand new hire which is very disappointing. NO breaks are given unless shift is 5 hours or more! Training is lacking! Requested, flexible hours are a great benefit. Mgmt. & coworkers are friendly/welcoming!

I really appreciated the culture with Ann Inc. They are all about the client experience, and allow the employees a lot of flexibility to make it the best environment for shoppers, based on location. Upper management was great - I had amazing supervisors. My typical day at work really varied because I worked in a small location with a lot of new talent and a lot of regular shoppers, but each shift did include a review of business and sales goals, merchandising and flexing product for sell-through, and coaching associates.

If you are someone in school seeking some extra money, then this is the job for you. The brand itself is great but the work dynamic and compensation differs widely, especially between the sales associates and managers. An associate for example could be compensated hourly for $11/hr while a Co-manger gets paid $19-$20/hr. It’s unfair. Besides keeping up to date with scheduling, business strategy et al, mangers perform the same tasks and duties as associates. I can say this because I was promoted to a Sales Lead and have seen both sides of the spectrum.

When I worked at LOFT I felt very welcome with my crew and I was actually impressed on how my co-workers took their jobs very seriously. Being at LOFT I learned how to be more organized, focused, and made me become more social.

There can be hectic days at work but usually with some strong leadership and time management days go by smoothly. hours can be too much for part time.

I worked here part time while I was going to school which was good, because I needed late hours to work. Many of the other employees were part time students and parents and I would imagine it was also because of the flexible schedule.

as a man working in a woman dominated field it was amazing working there. if management puts people where their strengths are and is wiling to schedule as such, the day doesnt feel like work.

It's exactly what you would expect in retail. High turnover for folks that work there. There are absurdly high expectations for how little they paid. The people I worked with were darling, except that there were a few incidents of people stealing out of lockers. As always the client made it difficult to enjoy the day.
Pros
good discount on clothes
Cons
the customer is usually rude

Everyone sucks and aren't effective, very gossipy. Only will promote you if the store is severely understaffed or if you're best friends with SM, or DM. Very cliquey wants to go out for drinks with you.

If there were no special promotions and it was a weekday, the work day would typically be relaxed. If we had a special sale, then the day was rather busy but totally tolerable. The management was helpful and very understanding. The hardest part of the job was usually dealing with difficult customers and the most enjoyable part was helping and spending time with coworkers
Pros
discounts
Cons
short breaks

Experiences differ depending on the store and the management. In general the staff is awesome but culture depends on the management and if you do not have a good manager its hard to get a directions and get tasks done. Also needs to be better communications from corporate to the stores. Fast pace environment but can be very rewarding when you get things done.
