    I have been working at Randa Accessories full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Despite other reviews I have read, Randa is a company that values creativity and invests in its employees. The company has tuition reimbursement, leadership development, internship rotations, and more. Randa has a broad range of jobs, brands, customers, products (from Dickies belts at Walmart to Cole Haan ties at Bloomingdales, from Weatherproof slippers at Costco to Tommy Hilfiger wallets on Amazon.com, etc.)

    Cons

    The company outgrew its internal structure and announced, last year, a organizational restructuring. (Randa grew from $100 million to over $700 million in less than 10 years). Change can be scary and the transition to new divisions, new warehouses, new management software and new reporting relationships had ups and downs. Seems to have settled down. Randa has a performance driven culture, expect to work hard and speak up to be recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employees informed, increase feedback and interaction. Randa has many new projects and opportunities, it would be good to communicate these better.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Randa Accessories.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter will call you, who is unfriendly and talks back to the person they are trying to recruit over. He does not work directly for the company, but he reflects badly on the company. I then met with the manager and a top senior manager, both who were friendly and efficient.
