    I worked at Benetton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cool clothes, nice discount, cool company, and great experience.

    Cons

    Quality has increasingly declined over the last few years. Seems like the US market does not understand the brand. Music selection was terrible. Store closings through out United States. Low pay structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the quality instead of a million different ways of displaying a bad product.

    Pros

    Good Discount on clothing after a month

    Cons

    -Extremely pushy sales models
    -No key holder can show compassion or even attempt to boost their employees morale.
    -commission is hard and at times not even worth it when it's only 2% of sales IF you make your two week sales goal.
    -no communication to employees
    -I got hired because I was "on brand" and dressed nice. So many girls with qualifications better than mine got turned down based on looks.
    -management is too busy picking out outfits and gossiping than running a store.
    -Management is all too busy giving snide & hurtful comments than helping employees succeed.

    One of the WORST company's I have ever worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you hire someone who knows what they're doing and not some 25 year old who runs around like they know what they're doing.

    Pros

    The company was having great discounts in clothing for the employees.

    Cons

    Zero communication between the Senior Management and the employees. It is impossible to obtain a feedback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to work in communication skills and training better how to work with a professional Finance staff. Some people that hold a very high position don’t know how to work with a professional group.

    Pros

    The product line is high quality and very diverse makes it fun to sell it.

    Cons

    Working for Benetton has been challenging due to the lack of direction passed down from senior management.

    The store discount is the best perk of this job.

    Pros

    Pay is one of the best in this level of retail starting between $11-$13 an hour.
    Good benefits and great bounus and commision rates.
    1/2 off discount for merchandise.

    Cons

    Co-workers are hustling for customers and will steal yours if given the chance.(Alot of Back Stabbing)
    Management does not care about or intrested in new ideas.
    Owner does not even say hi to his employees he will just ask you where is the manager if you greet him he will give you a smile and nod.
    No clarity when it comes to sales and clearance items alot of confusion.
    Parking in Santa Monica is $5.00 a day and you can not eat your luch in the back or out in the promanade unless you buy it from one of the vendors. SO that means eating in you car and half your luch will be spent walking to and from your car no car well eat out everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people are not performing as you like you should give them a warning and advise on how to do better. The owner and upper management should show more of an empowering personality and not be so cold towards your sales team we are the people bringing in the money and should be treated with alot of respect. Discourage gossiping and back stabbing so it is more of an encouraging environment for progression. Empower your sales force with positive feedback instead of only complaints.
