One fast fashion retailer seems to be missing the mark, at least when it comes to employee happiness.
Hundreds of Stitch Fix employees are quitting the company after receiving an email saying flexible scheduling was no longer offered, Mediaite.com reports. Employees responded by taking to social media to air their frustrations and ultimately flood a corporate Twitter page.
“Here at Stitch Fix, we prioritize helping clients spend less time in front of the screen and more time on the things that matter most,” the email read. “In the spirit of doing more with less, our flexible scheduling options are no longer available to our team. Please know that we will continue to provide the same high level of service our clients have come to expect.”

Employees who refused to comment on the matter blamed the company’s model for low wages and plenty of work, according to Mediaite.
While these staffers left Stitch Fix, the online retailer said it plans to improve the quality of its employees and provide them with more flexibility.
“We recognize the importance of offering flexible schedules to our team members,” the company said in a statement. “We are continuing to explore ways to provide our team members with more choices.”
The employee revolt comes just days after it was revealed that a group of staffers were suing Stitch Fix because of workers’ lack of access to parental leave.
