I worked at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques

Pros

Easiest retail experience I've ever had, the most fun too. The company encourages you to essentially throw a party and invite the customer. Managing inventory is a breeze, you try on designer sunglasses all day and you'll be the first mall employees out the door 5 minutes after you close. Also, very competitive pay for mall sales jobs. Pretty great discount too and many promotions that could land you free eyewear and swag! An easy foray into luxury sales.

Cons

Associates must take their own initiative in learning the product which is essential to selling. I was offered no training what so ever on product knowledge, had to hunt down and read vendor literature to educate myself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to emphasize product knowledge and training. Some kind of more formal onboarding would do a lot of good instead of just throwing people on the floor to sell. TIghter management of inventory is definitely needed.

    I worked at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent discount, great incentives, contests. RMs and DMs care about all employees and are always available to talk to you if you need to. Great training on product knowledge. Promote from within.

    Cons

    This is only for the hawaii store, all other store managers are awesome (asked employees from ofher stores). Boss was a total douche! Throws employees under the bus. Doesn't give recognition to those who deserve it. Favortism. Very unorganized and miss run. Doesn't work hours a store manager should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what employees are saying about this particular manager. He is the reason why workers keep quitting. The store is a $3m store because of location not because of him.

    Corporate is great. People are amazing, and it feels like a family environment

    Cons

    Company needs to invest more hours into there part time employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great with support, but they should invest more money into their employees to get maximum gain (more hours available to all employees)
