Fun and girly

Sales Associate (Former Employee)

ProsDouble discount was great. Mostly offered toward shoes and not the handbags. Found that odd since it started with handbags. Wouldn't you want your employees using the brand's bags? Fun environment to work (as long as you like your co-workers) because of the wall paper and colors. Instantly puts you in a great mood to work.

ConsCommission structure only started one month before I left, pay raises were not given. Company just wanted to open more stores and not reward it's hard working employees. Keeps employees besides management in the dark about upcoming product and company changes. Not very clear on the steps to move up in the company. Did not receive proper coaching to have an advancing career in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a better way to keep employees in the loop and ensure coaching is given to all staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
