positive

Prosin response to the review from the corporate person: much of what is written is accurate and senior management is aware of the lack of opportunity from within. However the reviewer is not correct about no movement from the field to the corporate area. There have been several employees who moved from the field to the corporate NYC location and there has been 1 employee who successfully moved from a store manager position to a Safilo Product Manager posiion. It is fully recognized that opportunities from a store manager to a district manager have been limited. In 2012 substanital monies have been dedicated to the creation of area managers and co manager positions exactly designed as succession to the position of District Manager. We look forward to adding these positions starting immediately and continuing throughout 2012 and beyond

Consno more downsides than any other company

Great company

Sales Specialist (Former Employee)
Hawaii (Guatemala)

I worked at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques full-time for more than a year

ProsDecent discount, great incentives, contests. RMs and DMs care about all employees and are always available to talk to you if you need to. Great training on product knowledge. Promote from within.

ConsThis is only for the hawaii store, all other store managers are awesome (asked employees from ofher stores). Boss was a total douche! Throws employees under the bus. Doesn't give recognition to those who deserve it. Favortism. Very unorganized and miss run. Doesn't work hours a store manager should.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to what employees are saying about this particular manager. He is the reason why workers keep quitting. The store is a $3m store because of location not because of him.

A good part time job

Key Holder (Current Employee)

I have been working at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques part-time

Prospretty good pay, work on an hourly basis vs. commission, very quick opening and closing process

Consextremely high turn over, never an opportunity to move up in the company

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on the employees you do have who know how the company works instead of constantly trying to recruit people "outside of the company"

Best Retail Company I've ever worked for, but slowly declining..

Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques

ProsVery good company communication, good pay, benefits and paid time off. Nice environment to work in. One weekend off a month and flexible schedule. In store contests always going on, bonuses avail. to everyone.

ConsThings are always changing and recently things haven't been changing for the better. They used to be concerned about the employees but now they seem like they are getting money hungry. ( my opinion in what I see going on in the company) Bonuses getting worse and very hard to obtain because of so many different aspects that need to be met. Lots of reports that need to be completed that take hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop changing things when they are working just fine how they are.

All Is Great Except For The Pay

Store Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques

Proseverything about this company is great, the DMs are very supportive so are the Regional managers and Jan, the VP is the best there is!!! this is a growing company and changes are made for the better

Consthere is lots of computer forms due daily, weekly, and monthly but nothing extremley hard. the pay is low for the job you do

Advice to Senior Managementkeep improving the company, so far so good, however, better bonuses and pay would be very motivating!!!
