Company Overview

Men’s Wearhouse has been offering quality and personalized service for more than 35 years. George Zimmer first appeared in Men’s Wearhouse commercials in 1985, demonstrating the authenticity of the brand. Everyone knows his famous line: “You’re going to like the way you look. I guarantee it.”

The company operates under the names Men’s Wearhouse, K&G Superstores (an off-price retail chain featuring discontinued items), Moores Clothing for Men (a Canadian chain of men’s clothing stores), Twin Hill Corporate clothing and MW Cleaners in the Houston Area. According to Business Week, Men’s Wearhouse targets the common man, with “the neatly displayed clothes in Zimmer’s stores [being] designed to cater to the unpretentious guy who wants to do as little as possible to maintain his wardrobe.”

On November 17, 2006, Men’s Wearhouse acquired After Hours Formalwear, a clothier specializing in black tie formalwear, from Federated Department Stores, the parent company of department store giant Macy’s. After Hours Formalwear was originally rebranded MW Tux, but has now been rolled up under the Men’s Wearhouse brand. The formalwear group within Men’s Wearhouse specializes in tuxedo rentals for men and boys for black tie events.

In August 2010, Men’s Wearhouse acquired the trade and assets of Alexandra plc, which was in administration and Dimensions Corporatewear to develop its presence in Europe. As of 4 February 2013, Men’s Wearhouse employs 15,261 people.

Who Makes Hiring Decisions

The Best Way To Secure A Position

Applying at your local Men’s Wearhouse location and convincing the management or local ownership to hire you is your best bet to secure a position. It is typically much easier to convince a local manager to give you a chance than a corporate human resources representative.

Applying in person and explaining your conviction face-to-face generally is much better than simply filling out an application.

If you can get a referral from another employee at that location you will also be helping yourself out tremendously.
