Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – July 5, 2016
Limited opportunity at the time so accepted new position. The starting pay was low, but received raises every year even in the down economy. Great benefits for health insurance, if opportunity arose would consider returning.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Slidell, LA – May 19, 2018
I come in and greeted nicely by all the workers and start with a meeting on how the day has been going and where we can improve. I love dealing with the customers because I like seeing them leave happy after I have helped them pick out a new outfit.
Employees were nice, but rather stressful environment.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Rochester Hills, MI – April 30, 2018
A typical day at Dressbarn was rather stressful, it felt like management was going to jump on you as soon as you walked in. overall the days there are fine, you get the occasional rude customer or two, but that's retail. The management was ok, I would like to say more but they were always behind with schedules, and didn't work around school hours. They were very picky with emergencies, which did not work out well for me. I had gotten into an accident at one point, and quickly texted one of my coworkers to cover my shift. Later on I got a call from one of my managers, who was very angry that I didn't call the store first. I can understand this, but at the time I needed someone to be at the store quickly in my place, and I didn't have time to call the store itself and explain at that moment. The hardest part of the job was the management. The most enjoyable part of the job was making the sales goal of the day/month and getting verbally rewarded for it, and also being praised for a good job on dressing the mannequins well.
Full Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Parma, OH 44134 – April 20, 2018
I felt that Dressbarn was a good place to work. For most years that I worked I was a full time employee with full medical and dental benefits. I also had paid vacation and choice time. Due to a changing corporate structure, full time employees were demoted to part time status. This was a company wide move and benefits were taken away. Additionally, hours were cut so I felt it was not beneficial to me to stay. I went full time to Quality Data Management (where I had previously been part time) and worked daytime hours and approximately 40 hrs per week. I feel I would still be at Dressbarn had they kept me as a full time employee. Because of corporate changes, it became harder to stay at Dressbarn. I enjoy working in retail but it was not feasible for me to remain in my position as Sales Associate at Dressbarn.
Stylist/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – April 14, 2018
All employees I encountered were very helpful and knowledgeable. Slightly slow during weekdays. No breaks, literally, I was told that Dressbarn does not give your average 15 minute breaks, only 30 minute lunches if you work 6 hours or more. Part-time is literally 15-17 hours, nothing more. Pay is decent for a retail job.Enrolling customers in text alerts and credit card apps are important and no you're not on commission. Great job for a retired person.

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Somersworth, NH – April 2, 2018
The job was pretty fast paced when there were new floor sets and new shipments in. I liked the girls that worked with us. I would have liked to have more room for advancement. There are girls that have worked there for years as Asst. Manager, with no hope of advancing unless a store leader leaves.
