Higher management was not good. Should not have been placed in her position ,they lost a very good manager because of it. When you have a bad manager it makes all the difference.

Love the store and the products are high quality but it brings the ugly side of people working under semi commission setting. We constantly had problems with other employees about commission

The upper management is willing to replace anyone in a minute, because all they are looking for is for someone who can sell without a conscience, ,they are looking to only make the sales goal.

This place was a hot joke! No one that worked there ever met the district manager. She was always o “Paid time off.” Always had to buy stuff out of our own pockets to operate efficiently. Never received visit or call from
Our “DM” only nasty emails when we didn’t make plan in a ghost town of a shopping center! Never once did anyone from corporate care when they closed our store and gave us our notice right after thanksgiving so we would all be stuck working there trying to give our families a Christmas and dangle is with this false carrot of a severance package that equals nothing to 90% of the people working for our stores!!

I enjoyed very much working with a team so passionate about growing, learning and WHBM overall. Management was always very helpful and it truly feels like a family working there.

Literally the worst job I’ve ever had. Management is a wreck, “corporate” has no clue what they’re doing, the work life balance is impossible. Almost no inclusivity in the work place. Terrible organization of employees and management. No perks aside from a petty employee discount.

If you end up in a great store with great co-workers and customers it's fun. My store was a ton of fun, but no matter how you slice it, it's still retail and still customer service. Corporate has no clue what they're doing, but if you get a good manager in store, you can deal with it better.

Wonderful place to work. I just needed to make more money and there was no advancement at the time for me. I would have stayed if I could have. DM was awesome and hands on. (Traci) sales staff were fun to work with.

Terrible management, toxic work environment, wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Pay is terrible, bonus is laughable. No place for advancement.
Never any compliments, only complaints about everything that you do wrong.

With the company suffering in performance the last four years, several new training and developmental resources have been provided, but there's simply no time to take advantage of them in a typical work day.

A decent place to work...coddling to customers was the most frustrating part. Scheduling is very strict. Must be very upbeat and perky to enjoy working there.

I felt that the opportunity for growth was lacking. Due to this, I left for better opportunity and better compensation within the same industry type. I felt that similar employers in the same industry offered better compensation and opportunity.

A great environment to work in. Management is very supportive and understanding. No where near the best pay/benefits wise but the atmosphere and management style is amazing and makes it a great place to work.

Brick and mortar retail stores are dying under e-commerce and online returns go against the stores daily numbers, under high pressure from corporate. It's like failing every day and theres little to be done about it.

Working for a company that knows how to be successful and challenged us to be innovator of the business by letting us build a
relationship with our customer which was the foundation.

White House Black market is fun but the dm and RM expect so much from you and you need to like numbers if you are going to be in a managment position.

WHBM is a busy store to work in. If you can't move quickly and have the product knowledge to make your life easier this isn't the place for you. If you'd like to work there and not deal with people apply for a support position.
