Good people but retail is usually drama filled and Guess is no different. Also I personally do not like retail as I cannot sell a product I don't believe in and some of Guess' clothes I don't mess with.
Very competitive environment. Associates would be neck to neck with each other when it comes to sales.
Management was supportive. They care enough about their employees to have workshops for them to educate them on products and such.
Theres chances someone could grow within the company depending on the skills you posses as an associate.
Would not go back. Asked me to do management task while I was a sales associate, but refused to promote me, even though I consistently made targets, worked extra time, and trained new employees. The people are nice, but the upper management left a lot to be desired.
Management worked you like a dog without keeping in mind that you were a student. IMPOSSIBLE to call in sick or have an emergency, they tell you to come in any ways. Absolutely no compassion, management cares more about making comp. The only enjoyable part about my expense working there, was my co-workers.
Main manager was completely unprofessional with co-workers giving them attitude and talking down on them completely ruining the friendly work environment! If you had a problem with the managers and you asked for the Human Resources number for the company you’d be threatened to be fired as they take the question as a threat to themselves! Little to no hours, no consideration for employees when it came to calling in sick or requesting a day off. Do not recommend! They ask for a lot but don’t pay you enough!
Working at Guess has its ups and downs. The in store managers are usually really good, the regional managers and head office staff for Canada are often tough even though they are friendly it’s a different feel. Working every position there but management gives a the benefit of knowing how retail works from the back house to the front. Stock is where 90% of the work is done then sales and cashiers.
