The 10 Best Retailers to Work For

Retailers With the Highest Employee Ratings

Working in retail may not be your idea of a dream job, but some companies do a better job than others of creating a positive atmosphere where employees actually don’t dread showing up to work each day. Glassdoor, an online career community, analyzed nearly 20,000 employee reviews on the site for more than 100 retail companies to find out which businesses people enjoy working for the most. The ratings, which go from one to five (the higher, the better), incorporate a wide range of factors including work/life balance, compensation, the quality of the management team and more. The data was collected during the 12-month period ending Nov. 2. Glassdoor’s results are as interesting for the businesses that do rank high as for those that don’t make the cut. Some of the biggest names in retail like Wal-Mart, Toys R Us and Target fail to crack the top 10, suggesting that the businesses most popular among customers aren’t always the most popular among employees. For those who are looking to get a holiday retail job or a full-time position, the retailers at the top of Glassdoor’s list may just be your best bet. Here are the top 10 retailers with the best employee ratings, from lowest score to highest. If you or someone you know has worked at one of these chains, we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section about your work experience at the company! Photo Credit: Getty Images
