    A pretty amazing place to work

    Internal Auditor (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA (US)

    ProsOverall, it's the people you end up working with because no matter what, a job in corporate is a job in corporate. Guess had an amazing audit staff and everyone was always so willing to help out and answer any questions you may have had. The hours were pretty great and flexible except during the end of the month.

    ConsDifficult to move up or change positions unless someone decides to leave. Don't offer any plan or help for achieving your CPA so you're on your own for that one. Otherwise, everything was great

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider providing more intensive training for people at lower levels

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company, Slow Growth

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI like the people that I work with and the way they lay out everything for you. You are also able to switch a few things up when it is not working for your specific store.

    ConsHaving to work weekends, but also 2 closing shifts. Whenever corporate are supposed to come visit the always bail on us. We are the factory store so we do get treated worse than all others. They do a lot for the retail stores and we just kind of hang in the background.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBust your butt so that you can move up faster. Do not stop trying because once you do they will find a way to let you go.

    Flexible, but outgrew my duties.

    Visuals (Current Employee) Arcadia, CA (US)

    ProsWonderful job when I was younger. Did not have to work weekends, I worked early in the morning and enjoyed not being a sales associate per my work personality.

    ConsMore hours should be allocated to visual workers and stock associates so that they can keep par with company standard. I constantly found myself doing work and projects that would take 20 hours/week to complete yet I would only have two 4-hour shifts to complete. (8hrs). Not store management's fault, it's the district manager's.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is good.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
