    Pros

    Easy retail job - good for seasonal work ... maybe.

    Cons

    This company is terribly disorganized. There is no room for advancement, because they are not looking to develope good staff they just want to push product Welcome to the 1970s - communication is primary through fax and customer orders are processed on paper.

    Pros

    Great work environment the regional supervisor is the best boss I've had. Really easy to talk to, helpful when you need it and always working with a positive vibe. great schedule, great pricing for rentals and retails which makes it really easy to sale (commission)

    Cons

    Updating to computer systems would really help this company to get to the next level.

    Black and Lee Retail Sales Associate review

    Pros

    The people that I worked with at Black & Lee were all really great. My manager was not only fun, kind and a good leader, but made sure that all the staff was well trained before putting us on the floor. The upper management are helpful and encouraging, and it seemed like the whole organization wanted to make sure their employees were happy. The job itself was simple enough once you understood, and I got to meet a lot of really nice people that came in to purchase or rent suits. Commissions were a plus too!

    Cons

    The only real downsides of the job was that it got slow in the winter, working weekends is usually necessary. Other than that, the time I worked there was really good.

    Best Possible Situation for a Student

    Pros

    The wage/work ratio is top notch. In all honesty we don't do a whole lot and have a ton of time to study. Only during wedding and grad season do things really pick up and when i say pick up I mean it's a little crazy. The regional manager is a pretty great guy and honestly cares about his employees, something most employers don't seem to do. He takes a lot of time to teach and train them and would rather work with the employee than see them leave. There's a reason most of his managers stay a few years.

    Cons

    All paper and fax communications. Things get lost this way or can be misread. The old man who owns the company is a beget, who only cares about the bottom line making the regional managers live hectic. It takes a long time if ever to get a raise. Sometimes it's lonely. In the off season it's normally just you in the store, maybe someone else if you live in a bigger town. For students this is awesome, but it can get a little trying being alone all the time.
