workplace culture is biased. Manager has ADHD and seeks to be praised constantly in order to be able to be brought into the circle. Also, work hours are not fair. management does not encourage educational growth hence would prefer to hire HS drop out so they can work through dead hours of the night. Each leader placed in this position needs to learn what RESPONSIBILITY mean. Stop pretending.

Everything goes smoothly when everyone plays their role and communicate effectively. The store works like a factory/machine. When I started, I don't think I got the sufficient amount of training in order to know how to do certain tasks. I mostly learned along the way.

Day at uniqlo is fast paced but working there is a learning experience with having to work with people who have similar interest and learning how to communicate with a team and customers. Some hard parts are when the store is not consistent and changes week to week making it hard for some team members to understand where products are placed.
Pros
Team members, Long breaks
Cons
Communication, Not consistent

The day-to-day as an associate is typically very busy. Management is thoughtful in assigning you areas of strength during the busiest hours, while assigning you new or other areas during slower periods to help with growth. Uniqlo is all about company growth, and gives you the means, tools and specifications to earn pay raises and promotions.

Overall, the stores I've worked at and assisted (Uniqlo as a whole is close knit - depending on how many stores are in an area, and your rank within the company, you may often have to aid other stores) have a close-knit team. Since everyone is training and learning a new thing, oftentimes the entire team knows how to do something and as such gets very close.


Basics areas include:

Fitting Room Service - where you count customers in and clean/process gobacks

Cashwrap - cash registers

Greeting - Front of the sales floor, greeting customers and providing customer service

Replenishment - unpacking and folding/hanging clothes and pushing them out onto the sales floor


Management varies drastically. Overall, management is nice, but adheres to Japanese ideology of placing customers as the top priority and working as hard as you can - to the point where you're even trained to walk quickly. It can be exhausting at first and good shoes are a must. Dress code is typically all black, but it's the managers discretion on if you can dress in seasonal Uniqlo Clothing.


Hardest Part: Japanese Standards

Most Enjoyable: The diversity of tasks
Pros
Good employee discount, closeknit teams, reimbursed travel to other stores
Cons
High standards, may require (reimbursed) travel or relocation

its sucks because for people that actually worked for Uniqlo when it first opened compared to people that just started working there. If the management team don't like you as a PERSON not as a hard worker then you get promoted. Even if you don't know what you are doing. Isn't that interesting. Basically if your not pretty or interesting your not going to get promoted

Overall, the experience at Uniqlo is not bad. For a college student, this is the job for you (if you are looking for a retail job). The pay is higher than most of the department stores in the more, however there's no commission. There's also opportunities for you to get a raise every 3-4 months depending on the evaluation period. In terms of the management team, they do have favorites, like most places you will be working at. For the tyson corner store (store 76), it is almost like young people managing young people, therefore, sometimes, things do not get done how it is suppose to be.
Pros
good pay, good discount
Cons
management team, favoritism
