I worked in retail for over 3 yrs. I felt very comfortable in retail until working here at the Palm Springs location.
My store manager was very picky about how things were done & she was very judgmental. My whole experience there was about how she wanted me to speak, & dress. She basically wanted to shape me into what she wanted. Which was very disturbing to me.

If you like to work and don't mind tasking to pass the time when needed, this is such a fun place to work. The management team is amazing in Austin, and I have really enjoyed my time here. The pay is so-so but there are benefits and definite perks. They really believe in work-life-balance and provide great training. One of the best retailers I've ever worked for.

not a good place to work unless you like being put on the spot and treated like you have 2 heads. Not a happy place. Very corporate. You can only take a 5 min break. It's hard to eat in that amount of time. Plus there is no place in the store to eat except in a tiny corner.

A cruel and hostile work environment with a narcissistic manager who goes through staff swiftly. Worst workplace ever. Favoritism and a mean girl mentality. Non supportive regional and area managers. No HR department for a company that is of the size one is needed. Many illegal practices.
Pros
Nice clothing
Cons
Store manager

My love for color and fabric love seeing new product every month but much of the fit and some quality fell short for me.
Tog have little to no say about the store you work,in and pay is for folks who work for a hobby.
Pros
Generous discount
Cons
No place for employees to put purse, lunch etc. And no comfortable place to have breaks or eat.

Do not waste your time with this company, unless you would like to be treated terribly. The clothing is cute but not worth the price point the visual merchandising was a headache. The paperwork was stupid and we had to constantly fulfill other orders. I will never set foot in a store again.

Easiest job i've ever had. They want you to be more like a friend helping someone shop, instead of a sales person. A regular day is serving champagne and chatting up customers. Hardest part of the job was probably looking for certain clothes customers wanted that were rare. The best part was the friendly atmosphere.
Pros
Easygoing atmosphere
Cons
if you don't make your goal in 3 months your job is threatened

Great company. I was Market Help and helped them during the busiest time and got to learn a lot about the boutique retail world. The management was wonderful to their seasonal part time help.

slow paced but easy to learn if you have been in retail. recently alot has changed, you are expected to meet a weekly/monthly goal that is possible to achieve if clients come in

Love the brand, dislike the management that represents it. The amount of work you put into the company is never recognized. Benefits are lackluster. You're just a cog in the system.
