This is all for Men’s Wearhouse.
Most of the employees are under 25, so there is a lot of immaturity. It’s difficult to talk people into spending $1000 on a suit when other employees are sitting around playing on their phones or talking about their drinking escapades.
Lots of crazy rental customers. The worst ones know they will get discounts or free stuff for being awful so that is frustrating.
Training is absent. They will have salesmen training but not teach them the very basics.
Lots of micromanaging from the district manager. Wanting to be in charge of everything but doesn’t get around to actually doing anything about it. Also extremely frustrating.
Sales are commission based so that often brings up issues with salesmen fighting, refusing to return items from customers (hence loosing commission), etc.
It is not a liveable wage for a career. Bonuses are never paid out at the end of the year. There is always an (made up) excuse, but they still don’t get paid.
Extremely high turnover. After a couple months I had the highest seniority in my store. You may be forced to go help at another store hours away.
Prom time is the worst. You can make good money on sales but Prom mothers/fathers are a whole other level of crazy.
Overall it’s not a bad job, but not something to look at as long term.
Relaxed atmosphere. Employee discount. Learn about clothing and tailoring.
Crazy customers, lack of advancement, low pay, Prom
