A great place for men to shop for nice attire
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 2, 2017
Working at Jos A Banks; a great experience to work with a professional staff that tailored to customer's needs. I enjoyed interacting with many different customers and personalities. IT was never a dull moment helping people select the right clothing for all types of events.

Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Washington/Metro, DCMay 25, 2016
working at Jos A Bank has been very interesting so far. We get paid on commission but the store is hardly ever busy, so it is a hit or miss with the sales.

Low commission
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 17, 2016
Management is late with info to employees and commission sucks at Jos. A Banks. You have to sell like triple to get a check where in other places you just have to sell double . Ridiculous sales every week where the customer and the salesman cant keep up. If your looking to make hourly then its ok.. Plus the Jos. A Bank suit is not that great for the price.
Pros
Nice shirts and ties and discounts
Cons
Low Commision and the store is like a ghost town.

Minimal opportunity for growth and advancement
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Washington DCApril 14, 2015
My time at Joseph A. Bank was under inconsistent and ineffective management. During the time, JAB was in a bidding war with Men's Wearhouse which affected management in the store I worked in and also regional management. I had 3 different store managers within a year. JAB was eventually purchased by Men's Wearhouse. The pay was not enough to live on and the commission incentives were also very minimal.

Worst company ever.
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 16, 2014
A terrible company. Jos A bank only cares about shareholders, Sales associates are treated very unfair. So high turnover in this company since the base pay is so low and there are so many sales associates in every location. Jos A bank C level people might be good bussinessmen with no leadership knowledge. Jos A bank is exaclty an example of a businessman started his retail bussiness wit some freinds, the business grew up, so that business man took care of all the people that stood by him from the start. Anyone new will join, will not have a chance to get in any advanced position.

Overall environment, fast pasted, multi tasked ,highly productive,inadequate compensation
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Washington DcOctober 18, 2012
The work place was very competive rewards were not compatible with company requirements.My day consisted of balancing cash drawers,filling customer orders,assisting and training associates in handling customer problems as well as any other isssues in resetting store.I worked in the Washington ,DC location and felt although the company had good quality great visibilty they didn't value there employees. The manor in they made changes in the schedule, they lack of space provided for personal space and other issues related to pay raise , commission. and promotions all show little effort by the company to achieve employee fair practice.The staff moral was low most of the time because the wanted alot but wasn't willing to compensate or reaward you.They seem more interested in divide and concur company relaions.My rating would be 5 out 10 with lots of room for improvement.It probably won't happen without a union .
Pros
reduced clothing price on quality mens clothes
Cons
short breaks inadequate compensation, inadequate raises and promotions
