    I worked at DvF as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    worked directly with the designers who were very nice, got to make samples that were went to china, clothing allowance, and $20 stipend.

    Cons

    a lot of running arround, sometimes disorganized, long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't hold onto the interns for no reason. If there is only a little bit of work that can be done the next day let them do it the next day.

    Pros

    Great, friendly and approachable employees
    Good employee perks especially for sample sales
    Good facilities in the Meatpacking office

    The midtown design office was very cramped and old but the worst part was that interns were put on an entirely different level in a work room type area.

    Former Employee - Merchandising Assistant in New York, NY

    I worked at DvF full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DVF herself is something to behold, she's a character that you can't take your eyes off of. I had the opportunity to learn from a few very smart women who graduated from Cornell, UCLA and Stanford Business School.

    Cons

    Very unorganized and no structure. There wasn't enough work for the Merchandising team and often times we would just sit there without any tasks to complete. Communication between departments is difficult because no one seems to know who is accountable for what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring people because you think they are pretty, hire competent people with experience. Solidify the structure and encourage communication between departments.
