    Loved it.

    Sales Stylist (Current Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsDiesel is an awesome brand. I love the high quality denim and edgy lifestyle. I loved working for the company, the music in the store is great as well. I met a lot of cool customers as well as good friends from working for this company. Diesel loves to consider there workers as "family" which makes for a nice sense of community. They also spend a lot of time training their employees which shows how much they care about the success of there company. Seriously my favorite job atmosphere thus far.

    ConsConsidering the traffic of certain retail stores the pay isn't that great. They do give you a nice clothing allowance and discount.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is to senior management, INCREASE YOUR PAY! $6/hr is weak, and business is getting slower in areas so the commission doesn't cut it...

    Chickens with their heads cut off.

    Sales Stylist (Current Employee)
    Tinton Falls, NJ

    ProsNice people to work with.
    Flexible schedule.

    ConsI have been working in the outlet division of NJ.

    Incredibly unfair compensation
    -For $8.50, it simply is not worth it (at least at the store I worked). The company is thinking about doing commission for the outlet realm, but I feel it will not be a major improvement especially if it is a low volume store.

    Very mediocre management team
    -There are only 7 people for the entire store but for some reason communication is still very difficult and disorganized.
    -The expectations and demands for corporate are unrealistic especially when not given the proper training or tools in order to perform.

    Very cliquey/ unprofessional
    -The people who have worked there the longest are the greatest of friends which is fine but when it comes to doing work, it can be very unprofessional when involving friendships in the workplace and also when trying to work.
    -One time someone came in high into work and actually admitted it, but there were no punishments or repercussions.

    Very uncomfortable/ cramped working conditions
    -The stockroom is an accident waiting to happen. There are heaping piles of clothes to the ceiling and very wobbly shelves.

    Low Quality clothing
    -Because we are an outlet, we don't get the best clothes that you would see in a retailer. A lot of the times we get clothes that are produced for the outlet division which is low quality and high price

    Annoying Customers
    -In the outlet there are a lot of foreign customers who are very demanding and needy. They will always try to get you to change the price or demand for extra discounts.

    Very poor POS systems
    -The cash registers and computers are very slow and unreliable. Many times we had to turn customers down because our system simply can not take their international card (but other stores in the mall can).

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on employee culture and improving working conditions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
