"High-class" hostility and back-stabbing

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Beverly Hills, CA

ProsName on resume, and very flexible scheduling, thats all.

ConsImage of company is deceiving! Brown-nosing coworkers and managers, no trust amongst anyone, HR enforces hostility and complaints against employees for no reason, draw pay structure = basically commissions only....and had to pay $80 a month in parking fees!

Here's the bonus: this company is so cheap, they served a bag of 99 cent hersheys kisses for employee appreciation week.....I could write a book about how misleading this company is for future fashion and sales / marketing professionals

Advice to Senior ManagementPay salary and commission, stop enforing hostile competition, train your managers to know how to use (or at least open) the registers. This was an embarassment of a company to work for.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
