    Pros

    Forty per cent discount on Guess clothing and accessories which is okay if you like that kind of thing.

    Cons

    Very little training at any level with no support from managers, district managers or head office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop placing such high importance on enforcing ridiculous guidelines forcing your staff to look sexy and concentrate on providing training for your teams.

    Pros

    Discount, more advanced skills needed to be successful therefore helps to make you a better employee /manager. Good people.

    Cons

    Blurred company vision, lack of communication from top to bottom, weak training and developmental implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be leaders, not just operational managers. Know your business and be confident in the people you've hired to run it.

    I worked at Guess?

    Pros

    Where I was, 80% of the customers spoke another language, and it was invaluable to practice conversationally without having to leave the country; there were many employee appreciation days, 40% off most items, bonuses for working most holidays, there is a strong sense of brand pride, there were opportunities to be promoted

    Cons

    There are inconsiderate customers on a daily basis, you are required to work holidays, for a while transgender people were suspected as shoplifters and associates were supposed to "keep an eye" on them and I think that's ignorant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more lgbt friendly, have the product be made in the USA.
