    I have been working at PVH Corp.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a lot of company perks - holidays, parties, discounts, great kitchen with tons of drinks and free drinks / coffee.

    Cons

    Being an older established company, any type of change in any area - whether processes or policies or computer systems takes years until things change. When they are officially changed, it always goes back to the way it was. The good managers are great and you can see how quickly their staff is promoted. But there are more bad managers that may know how to do their "jobs", but are not necessarily good managers to the staff. Being that is such a huge corporation; you become slightly pigeon-holed in a position; that does not really transfer to other companies so it is difficult to find a similar job outside of PVH.

    Pros

    Great employee discounts to PVH stores. There is some opportunity to grow within the company if they like you.

    Cons

    Too political. There was a lot of change the last year I worked there. They switched to a site manager because the stores were not doing as well as intended. They let go of our store manager and didn't let anyone know what was going for days. Lack of communication between upper management and employees. New management talked a lot trash on old employees/ management. Not enough hours to go around. I worked there over two years and they never set up my direct deposit, and they use adp card which is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate what's really going on with the company. Be fair with everybody and be more open to letting go of associates who don't show up for their shifts. Get your administrative team on the same page, and hold them accountable to get stuff done.

    Disorganized with unrealistic expectations

    I have been working at PVH Corp. part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Because I am already dressed formally with a dress shirt, slacks, loafers and a tie, it is easy for me to provide customers with informed fashion tips when they are looking to build their own outfits. Our store is located in an outlet mall, which makes selling our competitive prices on merchandise (almost) a breeze. Additionally, I receive an incredible employee discount of 50% on work-related attire and 40% off of other merchandise (e.g. polos, jeans and sunglasses).

    Cons

    A majority of our customers are foreign tourists who speak limited English, making it difficult for me to not only communicate with shoppers, but also to follow all five steps of the S.A.L.E.S. method (Say hello, Approach the customer, Listen to their wants, Evaluate their needs, Say thank you). Also, the company does not offer any commission, which is unfortunate considering there are times when fellow associates and I spend extensive time with a single customer helping him or her find everything he or she acquires in a purchase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close on time. Don't allow 15 people to walk into the store two minutes before closing time and let them take all the time they want to make a purchase decision. We once had customers nearly 30 minutes past closing time with only 2 people slated to recover that night; we wound up staying two hours longer than normal straightening the merchandise and closing the registers. I have a life, too, and I don't want to spend all of it cleaning up other people's mess.

    Pros

    My manager is really awesome!

    Cons

    As a sales associate, there is a cap on how much you can make hourly. You don't get any PTO or health insurance. This is a job that you work at while you are in school, etc to make pocket change.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fantastic perks, and good opportunity for career growth.

    Cons

    Inefficient, old-fashioned and laden with red-tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to improve business processes - look to improve and innovate, rather than continue doing the same outdated things that you have always done.

    I have been working at PVH Corp. part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Guaranteed hours as a management associate, significant dress code discount.

    Cons

    There are heavy payroll constraints wherein little to no payroll is given to complete heavy tasking, the workload is extremely heavy week after week with no adjustment to the amount manpower allotted to complete the work, the wages are complete nonsense, etc.. In fact, PVH is the lowest paying company in the large outlet mall at which I work. Temporary workers at some retailers in the mall make three dollars more than I do per hour, and that's just one example. The benefits and perks are provided only to full-time employees at an excess. There is little to no opportunity for promotion, but truthfully, who in their right mind would want to work in retail as a career? Corporate has the money to spend on perks and benefits for full-time employees left and right, but cannot provide higher wages to their dedicated employees or more payroll to stores. It's a travesty to say the absolute least. Despite all the grievances I have with my current position, I feel worse for the sales associates. The pay is so much worse, hours are never guaranteed and are always being cut, and the workload is one that merits far higher compensation. Time and time again, sales associates are hired only to be let down by the miserable provision of hours and the equally abysmal hourly payment. The company attempts to assuage their wrongs by offering a sizable discount on dress code merchandise (50% off) and non-dress code merchandise (40% off), but this is nonsense. Providing a discount is a benefit that can only be reaped if the associate is willing to spend their measly paychecks on clothing. It's completely ludicrous that this is considered an upside to working for the company. At most, it's designed to lure employees into accepting a job offer for a position that will undoubtedly be incredibly underfunded. The organization of corporate resources, or lack thereof, is abhorrent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reapportion your resources to provide just wages for your employees and the appropriate payroll hours necessary to execute the weekly tasks you provide ad nauseam. Moreover, stop providing all of the benefits to only your full-time employees. Offer now opportunities to lower ranks in the store to increase morale and your reputation. For example, allow floor supervisors and sales associates to participate in the HealthMatters walking challenges. I'm betting that our pedometers would read much higher than those of our "superiors" because we're the ones doing all of the leg work while upper management does little more to contribute to the physical labor than point at what their drones should complete next.

    I have been a part-time sales associate for a few years.

    I have been working at PVH Corp. part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you just want a part-time retail job, this place is fine. There isn't a store credit card and you don't have to hound customers. For the most part, I really liked the people that I worked with. The discount was also really great.

    Cons

    I didn't get a raise until after over 2 years of working there. Even in our high volume store, there ware barely enough payroll hours for floor coverage and to complete tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give stores a lot more payroll hours so that your employees actually have time to provide real customer service.
