Disappointing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsDiscount comparable to other retailers.
Don't have to wear their clothes.
Not really much I can say that is positive. Company seems to not know, or maybe don't care about daily outlet operations

ConsPay is very low in comparison to other companies.
When I thought of Barneys I thought of a great hip place to work...NOT
Upper management constantly changing mind on every issue
Loss prevention a joke. No corporate support.
Inventory not at all what people are expecting at an outlet...basically left over crap from other stores.
Who does the hiring? HR people in charge of hiring need to learn how to read resumes and not hire undesirables to "give them a chance". I'm sure this is done so they don't have to pay.
Corporate bullying in regards to customer name capture. Hello...customers do not.want to give their personal information out. Deal with it.
sales associates are given ridiculous sales goals...no commission ...plus low hourly wage.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together. The Barneys name used the mean something. Corporate people live in their own closed little world with no conception of how a store actually runs. ...seems like each is on their own power trip. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
