    Pros

    Deal with customers all day and have the flexability to sell if you are good at your position

    Pros

    Awesome employee discount (1 free item a month, 5 items at 75% off and the rest 50% off) You do make some commission but its hard to make at times and its not very much to be motivational.

    Cons

    Some of the people are lazy and very often you need to pick up the lazy people's slack. Also, closing time is a pain, the store needs to be completely perfect before you leave. It sometimes took 2-3 hours after closing to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful of lazy employee's, don't just let them get away with it, cause everyone else needs to pick up their slack (especially at closing time)

    I worked at Armani Exchange

    Pros

    Product was great. Awesome discount. A lot of great workers and people in store

    Cons

    I was a manager at the Santa Clara California location I loved the staff but no matter how hard you worked it was never enough. On top of floorsets, operations, running the floor, customer service, making your personal goals (if not you get written up) opening/closing and everything else in retail world you do it all by yourself with little or no support. They have such a high turn over rate. They loose there good managers and associates because you aren't appreciated by the high up management for all the hard work you do. I left on good terms and know I did everything I could but it did burn me out.

    I have been working at Armani Exchange part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is my second retail job so I knew what I was getting into when I accepted the job. The discount is good compared to other retail stores and it's a fun workplace when you have a great staff. Im only part time but I actually get more than 20 hours a week which is a plus. The clothing is trendy and of good quality.

    Cons

    Working retail means you probably won't have any weekends to yourself anymore and working holidays is pretty much a guarantee. Also staying on top of your sales per hour can sometimes be stressful since you are competing with other associates.

    Pros

    Receiving great discounts on clothing and free uniform

    Cons

    Sales goals were intense and they weren't for commission - they determined if you had hours the following week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on managing the store than increasing your sales

    I worked at Armani Exchange part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I only worked in the Paramus mall for the summer before I went back to University. Discounts if you like the clothing. Some managers really cared about the store and their employees.

    Cons

    Some of management are on a power trip, one manager literally screamed at me on the top of my lungs that I was stupid and incompetent in front of a customer. Want to know why? I was waiting for a customer on the phone purchasing an item. When I told the manager he should not speak to his fellow employees that way, he screamed at me to "get the hell out." ( I did receive an apology from another manager the next day but never from him)

    Because the schedule is based on sales, some employees "steal" sales from other coworkers. Therefore if you make a sale you need to walk them up to the register and check them out yourself. This is difficult if it gets busy. I think this just makes for an uncomfortable and unprofessional atmosphere. Furthermore there is sexual harassment that is tolerated as joking. I once had a coworker say to me (in earshot of a manager) that if he didn't have a girl friend he would "destroy" me. EW.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect. Live and breath the Armani Exchange brand. Step up.
