    Great place to work if you are in the right selling area, but corporate strategy only supports NY, BH and the web.

    I have been working at Barneys full-time (more than 3 years)


    Good pay, good benefits. The team works well together and supports each other more than at other retail environments I've worked in.


    Management is constantly turing over, the chaos and lack of support from corporate tends to burn out even the best candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline your offerings and pay more attention to what your small locations are offering.

She said that she would share my application with different department managers and see what they say. She said i wpuld hear back in a week. I waited and got a phone call to come in to a second interview with department manager. The department manager was warm friendly and engaging asked me a lot of questions about my skills and professional experience. Then thanked me for coming in and said i should hear a decision within a week onc e my references check out. It took a little while because they had difficulty getting a hold of one of my references but i provided another reference waited another week.
