When I started working at Dressbarn, I had no experience in clothing retail sales, and was not aware of what I was getting into. I joined as an Associate, and not even a full year later was allowed to be promoted to an Assistant Manager upon my request.
It handles as any clothing store would, with the targeted audience being in their 50's. It promotes a culture of making people look and feel beautiful. Customers come 50/50, either wonderful to work with and you are truly able to make a difference in their day, or others who do not want/require assistance. A large pool of regulars contribute to sales.
Definite two days off a week, flexible hours
Minimum wage, no benefits for PT, every store managed slightly different
