Looking for a list of top retail companies to work for? These are the best retail companies to work for as ranked by retail employees themselves. If you're looking for a new retail job and wondering, "what retail company should I work for?", there are many things to consider, like available hours, flexibility of schedule, and benefits plans offered to employees. The top retail stores to work for tend the be the ones that offer a mix of these options while allowing employees room for upward mobility and job promotion.

Not everyone has the same opinions about what makes a company one of the best retailers to work for. The best place to work for one person might be the company that offers the most paid time off. Others would seek available jobs with retail companies that have the best benefits packages (including health and wealth packages). Others still look for a retail job with flexible hours for school. There are many factors that contribute to the makings of a great retail job (like a chance to be promoted to management and locations in multiple cities), but every person has their own opinions to share on this list of the best retail companies to work for.

What are the best retail companies to work for? Who are the top retail employers? What is the best retail company to get a job with? What retail company offers the best benefits for employees? Many of these factors contribute to choosing the top retail company to work for. If you have worked for one of these places and have an opinion on which retail treats its employees best with regards to salary, management, and time off, vote for them here (up or down).

If you're of the belief that a happy employee gives the best customer service, you might want to augment your decision about the top retail company to work for with the lists of the companies with the best customer service and the companies with the worst customer service.
