From Illinois — 09/06/2010

The Oak Brook location has THE most polite managers on Planet Earth. The very best sales people should apply at that store location, because they will just love it it.

Pay is above average for retail (it's luxury selling!), and full-timers get benefits.

Negatives: All black dress code (3 "colors" for blouses if not doing black is limiting; they let you wear white, light blue or cream, and no, I'm not kidding).

Also, managers need to be more up on the meal break laws so they are present to relieve people who are pushing beyond the first 5 hours of a seven and a half hour shift (this is NOT OPTIONAL, but is required under Illinois law).

Other than the dress code and some people not being clued in on some of the labor issues, it really isn't a bad place to bide your time while in school and just needing flexible hours. Full-timers get benefits and are eligible for commission from both the store and vendor (for specialists), and that's on top of your hourly base pay rate. You'll work for the extra, but it's doable.

If you are fabulously professional and love nice managers, you'll love Oak Brook!
