Pros

Great incentive to make money, fabulous discounts on designer merchandise, senior staff are great motivators, diverse group of employees, creative people sharing ideas and knowledge of merchandise, and a great opportunity to grow with the company. There are affordable medical benefits, 401K plans, dental, and insurances. Getting recognized for a good dob done well.

Cons

Not all employees do their fair share of work leaving others to pick up the brunt of cleaning and straightening of merchandise. Long hours of standing and bending throughout the work day. Commission plus hourly salary is calculated against a formula based on your pay per hour and FT or PT status. Very hard daily goals to obtain but they are attainable if your motivated to give expert customer service. Employees who are not as dedicated as yourself leave a bad impression on the consumer making it difficult for others who are there to earn a living.

Advice to Management

More reviews are needed on employees and the input and complaints of fellow workers should be considered during the review process. More education from vendors is greatly needed about their products new and old. Keep up the great work and keep us motivated, the morning meetings and rallies really do help.

    Have to be ok with a corporate environment and boring retail, but potentially rewarding.
