    I worked at Calvin Klein part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you love fashion and staying on top on new trends. Lots of hour to around during holiday seasons (good if you want the hours)

    Cons

    Work life balance can be difficult, especially during the holidays and when it is time to prep for cooperate. Expect to work long hours, and stay after closing for prep. Hours will be cut if sales are down

    Advice to Management

    Express to workers the importance of sales and how the impact the amount of hours given. Keep open communication and up dates instead of just cutting hours with out warning or preparation.
