Claire's Inc. was my very first job. My manager, Debbie Felden, was one in a million and taught me that right and correct way to do the job. Luckily, I was able to begin as a sales associate, then to a 3rd key, and then an assistant manager. I was also offered a management position, but it wasn't the right time for me. I had a great manager, this a great experience.

Pros and Cons
You get a small discount, it's a bright and friendly atmosphere
Bad food quality (the malls food court)

I love working at Claire’s. However, I have had a horrible time with indecisive and drama-prone management. It’s stressful being put in a position where you have to clean up after everyone’s mess and take the blame for everything. I have watched four employees quit in 4 months. The store manager always talks about employees behind their backs along with the district manager. The district manager micromanages the store very bad. The environment at Claire’s does not benefit personal growth. I have become stressed and it has caused me to perform horribly in my college classes. I go above and beyond and nothing ever gets recognized. I constantly feel belittled at the store and have watched the 4 previous employees complain about the same thing. I stay because this job best suits my availability with college and the pay is what I am looking for. But it is costing me my mental health and wish some changes could be made. Wonderful place to work if under different management.

Pros and Cons
Good hours. Decent pay. Cool experience.
Bad management. Little food options for breaks. Hardly any requested days off unless you’re military

I enjoyed every second working for this company. The employees I worked with were like a family, we were very involved in helping and understanding the customers. I loved helping children abs adults shop for their needs and gaining a connection.

Pros and Cons
The friendships you gain, the charity we involved ourselves in.
The pay wasn’t good enough to continue
