Pros

The experience that I received at Godiva enabled me to land the wonderful job that I have now.

Cons

Even though you are micromanaged to the point that you wonder why they even CALL you a store manager, you still take the fall if 1. Your goals are not met, 2. You're over in payroll, 3. You have fruit flies. 4. Name it. You will have an insulting DM, a demeaning RM, and underpaid associates. You will be mystery shopped and if all the criteria is not met, you will be written up. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. In a nutshell: don't do it.

Advice to Management

If you remotely care about the future of this company, read the Glass Door reviews.

    Stable work, relatively easy, mostly fun to do, generous chocolate discount

    Cons

    poor management, poor staffing, little room for growth, low pay

    Advice to Management

    If workers are happy, customers are happy and business will prosper...however, if workers are not happy, business will suffer


  2. Good overall experience, mostly because of good co-worker relationships.

    Pros

    Relatively stress free job, no commission based selling. Small group of employees so you get to know everyone and can make life long friends. Great part time job for students.

    Cons

    Hours for associates are scarce and shifts are short, don't try and make a living here unless you are part of the management team. They hire management from outside the company, so you will be lucky to go from associate to management.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within to avoid confict between store management and associates. Invest in your employees and in turn, they will be more invested in the company.
