I worked at JoS. A. Bank full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Loved the tailoring position and my relationship with the customers

Cons

Corporate put an extreme amount of demands on the tailors and then you have a store manager that is a control freak, there is no way but out. My blood pressure fell 30 points, 3 days after I left.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a hard look at your guidelines concerning tailoring. You are driving your tailors into the ground.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My store was very easy going. It was fun to learn about style and help others look good for some of their most important life moments. Customers were always very nice and the managers let you be independent once you got the training wheels taken off.

    Cons

    Completely unrealistic sales goals. I was there for several months and the entire time only two employees ever hit the goals and they barely hit them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring down the sales goals and your employees will try harder. There were several employees that were disenfranchised because they thought they would never make goal.

    Pros

    NICE CUSTOMERS, a representation of poor management, great networking,okay money at a busy store

    Cons

    long hours, no training, horrible alterations, poor management at store level and regionally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train your staff, pay a little more, stop having sales, promote store level marketing to colleges, law offices, anybody who wears suits. at this point you've trained your customers to only come in when its a sale.
