Store Manager (Former Employee) – Concord, NC – July 17, 2018
Give a 100% and you will be recognized. TB wants to promote within. The company has gone through many transformations. Most impressive is they are making sure that the teams are trained and that policies are now followed and reviewed by all stores. No grey areas and district managers that are there to help and be more proactive. The atmosphere is beautiful and the majority of the guests are happy like the clothing they choose to purchase. Its the best part of the job to have fun with your guests. Life is one long weekend! The hardest part is probably when you have a slower day and your not achieving your goal. We all want to make out bonus at the end of the month.

I have been working at Tommy Bahamas for around 3 years now, and it has been the most reliable, family orientated job I've worked at. The managers care about your personal life, and try their best to work with you. Guests build connections with all team members. And all staff members turn into family.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Palm Desert, CA – May 27, 2018
They paid me way less than the young boys they hired after me with no work experience at all. I was told to quit and come back if I wanted a pay raise. Spoke to the district manager who did nothing about it. I had top sales repeatedly even as a part time associate which really did not mean anything as they do not pay commission anyway. Eventually found a better paying job with full benefits. Still love Tommy Bahamas anyway.
Working in college or high school, this is a good job. There is not much advancement within a single store. However, if you're willing to relocate, you can advance fairly quickly. The work environment is nice. It can be a little competitive, though.
I really enjoyed my time with Tommy Bahama. Would have preferred more corporate structure, and the support team is definitely more familiar with retail than restaurant applications, but the energy was always positive, and I felt valued.

Tommy Bahama is over priced, the only cool part of the job was you got free clothes. I hated how much you had to kiss butt to people & keep bugging costumers. Where I worked was super boring and majority of the time id show up to work and 2 hours later let me leave. worked for over a year and still never got a pay raise. employees would steal sales so they could reach their own sales goals which was pointless. Only pro I liked about this job was that we made bonus every month. Clothes are for an older crowd and you have to wear only tommy Bahamas to work.
a productive work place you are almost always in the mix of things
Director of Operations Outlet Division (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 5, 2018
I love to build things and the chance to create a new Outlet Division was what I wanted to do. Tommy is not afraid to throw you in the mix to see what you got. My growth from those experiences in building the Outlet Division and what I learned was unbelievable and very exciting. The people I met there; in the office or in the field are one of the best teams I've ever worked with. So, if you get the chance to work there...don't pass it up.
Most of the Teams are great to be involved with good ideas come from the people.
some use Passive Aggression as the preferred sarcasm
