I worked at Alex and Ani part-time for less than a year

Pros

Good discounts on the jewelry.
Fellow Sales Associates were fun to work with.

Cons

Managers had a negative attitude. I never felt comfortable asking them questions and they always messed up the work schedule so you never knew when you would be on shift. Also, the positive energy of the bracelets is completely made up and hard to stand behind when selling to customers. Much of the jewelry is made out of basic materials that wear out easily.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reinforce positive energy in the managers. So many of them hated their job and were negative role models.

    I worked at Alex and Ani full-time

    Pros

    It is a Hip, young atmosphere

    Cons

    Management, the owner micromanages, for a company that's about self expression, the employees are forced into "stepford" workers, not daring to question any decisions or policies. You can lose your job in a heartbeat without cause or frankly, justification.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually Be the management you claim to be.

    I worked at Alex and Ani for less than a year

    Pros

    Generous discount on their faulty jewelry.
    Taught me how to peddle things that really mean nothing.

    Cons

    Management is immature, unprofessional, and power-hungry. The refuse to let any employees grow within the company and take on any added responsibility that may make them a threat to current management.
    Work-life balance is impossible. I was pressured to hang out with my coworkers outside of work, which I was not comfortable with.
    No room for growth within this company. They will offer you an opportunity then take it away like it means nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your employees grow.
