I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time

Pros

The company is flexible, giving key employees who are ambitious the freedom and scope to go out and get things done, with very little red tape. G-III operates like a small business, although there are public group with over $1 billion in annual sales.

Cons

Lack of structure and policy often leads to confusion about who is responsible when things do not go as well as planned.

    Pros

    - designers (other than the head of design) are cool - ended up commiserating with them

    Cons

    - terrible hours
    - sociopathic head of design
    - you are guilted if you don't stay late hours to finish up the mountains of work that exist because the design team is understaffed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you would have a lot less turnover if your head of design treated her employees better

    I worked at G-III Apparel

    Pros

    The people within the stores were great. My inability to work during parts of the weekend was respected (but I had also been with Bass for 8 years). The discount is 40% and you get it at Wilsons Leather and PVH stores.

    Cons

    The company had just taken over Bass that year and they clearly didn't know what they were doing. Hiring good, experienced candidates was not a priority, neither is training them. My store when weeks without a store manager and when they hired someone, they trained for only 2 weeks. Don't work on commission but they keep track of individual sales and there are warnings and repercussion if you don't consistently make goals. Very limited schedule hours but they still expect you to do everything as if you were staffed appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it a day at a time and try to maintain a relatively upbeat environment. If you've never worked for PVH (the company that owned Bass prior to AM retail) you should be fine because you may not be aware of what it was before.
