Fun place to work if certain people are there
Sales associate (Former Employee) –  Sunrise, FLAugust 15, 2018
The hardest part of the job is to close because the place would be a mess and you can start cleaning up until it’s closing time. And if the store is packed you’re supposed to move super fast and help every single customer there

Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Monroe, NYAugust 14, 2018
Guess was a quality company. Working in their factory outlet stores was a very competitive culture. Guess was a global name brand, which required a global approach in all aspects of the retail world.
Quality brand name demanded, top quality customer service, detailed merchandising strategies, and top performing operrtional systems.
Pros
Fun, youthful work culture. International brand, competitive salary, adequate benefits.
Cons
Limited locations, ineffective logistics.

okay
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Cabazon, CAAugust 13, 2018
This place was fun to work at. Scheduling isn't that great. Shifts were always 4 hours. A lot of favoritism going on here. All girls so very competitive environment. But overall good.

Management reflects the cheerleader cliche
Sales Associate / September (Former Employee) –  Riverhead, NYAugust 9, 2018
Management doesn't accommodate for their sales associates and cares for these human beings only for sales floor coverage. They have a lack of maturity by spreading lies and rumors about current and former employees. Management also very often schedule associates to where they aren't "allowed" to take a break. They will throw other employees under the bus for the sake of covering their own behinds.

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Commerce, CAAugust 5, 2018
The workplace was great and i would definitely apply again if they gave me the chance to work with them again. The pay could have been a little better, but since I don't work there anymore. I'm not sure if they raised it.

Quick Paced Environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 4, 2018
The Soho District brings a lot of tourism from young trendsetters all over the world. Though the Soho location is smaller than the flagship located on 5th ave, the traffic do not stop. Be prepared to constantly be moving around the store.
Pros
Teamwork
Cons
Not many food choices in the area

A competitive work environment that is slightly catty, but very classy.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 31, 2018
Maybe this was just my experience working in NY on 5th avenue, but it can be very competitive against yourself as well as your coworkers to better your sales, and to look the best/sell the best. They are a bit more traditional(sexist) about dress code (i.e. heels and makeup but guys can pretty much wear whatever) but overall it was an interesting environment to work in, and I learned a low about more upscale selling.
Pros
Employee discounts, learning, fun managers/coworkers
Cons
catty managers/coworkers, rude customers

Guess?
Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 29, 2018
Guess was not a bad place to work. Decent pay rate and co workers were cool. However management was very disappointing. Lots of drama in work in managers about other associates. Management would treat associates better than others based on if they liked you or not. They like you? 40+ hours. They dont like you? Maybe 12 hours a week if your lucky.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 24, 2018
Guess is a popular brand with usually a high volume of customer traffic during peak hours, causing it to be a more stressful retail job. My typical day consisted of our daily chat-in about our sales goals, helping customers, organizing the store, styling the fitting room doors, and watching out for potential theft.

Web Photo Studio Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 20, 2018
The photo studio was great! Worked with many creative individuals, management in my department was amazing, other departments not so much. There was no room for growth in company, there was a lack in communication in many areas.

Fun workplace with a great location to work at.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 18, 2018
A great location on 5th ave New York City. A goal driven aggressive sales environment from associate and managers. $30,000 sales days every Friday and Saturday are the norms. $20,000 every other day however if we don't meet or exceed goals we stay open feels like being hostages at times. Long closing nights sometimes due to the lack of associates closing or inexperienced associates. Motivate me to succeed in life and move up in the company.Cut hours when it's a slow day and for someone who lives on their own that is not ideal.
Pros
Great location, good discounts, fun management at times
Cons
long closes, sometimes not enough hours are given. cut hours

High stress retail job, but still allows room for fun and creativity
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 15, 2018
Guess is a popular brand with usually a high volume of customer traffic during peak hours, causing it to be a more stressful retail job. My typical day consisted of our daily chat-in about our sales goals, helping customers, organizing the store, styling the fitting room doors, and watching out for potential theft. The management varied, where some managers were easier to work with and other managers weren't. Some managers simply watch over you to make sure you are doing okay while other managers tend to micromanage, making the job much more stressful to deal with. The hardest part of the job was closing shifts, where employees would have to close the store from 12am until about 1:30 - 3am, and occasionally we would have to work in heels when special guests would arrive. The workplace culture was okay. There were times when it would be stressful and demanding, but also times when it would be fun because sometimes Guess would throw parties and have a DJ come to play some music to promote sales that were going on. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely trying on clothes and dressing up customers.
Pros
opportunity for creativity
Cons
have to stay up until late at night to close the store, have to wear heels sometimes, the time between one's first shift and the next shift would not always meet government regulations

Guess Factory Outlet (Former Employee) –  Central Valley, NYJuly 11, 2018
a typical day at Guess will just be going in and start cleaning the cash-wrap so we wont have to stay there that late. And ring out people as fast as we can while getting loyalties so they can come back to shop with us again. What i learned at Guess is that you have to move fast and have patients with the customer. Management was ok, that's all i have to say. The hardest part of Guess was having to stay there so late and then coming back that same day to open or to do it all over again with little to sleep. The most enjoyable part of Guess is the connection you make with the co-workers everyone there is older enough to act like an adult and the treat you like one.
Pros
get payed for vaction once you stay there for a year.
Cons
no full time
