    I worked at Fortunoff full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy work;
    Decent pay for being retail;
    Good job if you are in school and need cash.

    Cons

    Super boring. Some days there is nothing at all to do. But once in a while there is a ton of work. There is never an in between. For the most part, just really boring. Definitely not a company to have a career. Not many career opportunities besides being a sales person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop opening up so many stores so soon and so close to each other.

    It isn't the same Fortunoff since the family sold the business!

    I worked at Fortunoff

    Pros

    The enviroment was clean. Co-workers were mostly pleasant. There were incentives durintg the busy holiday seasons as well as rallys and trying to get productivity from employees. You were treated like family for many years when Mr. Fortunoff was alive. Employee benefits were good as well as the discount.

    Cons

    Management was deceptive when it came to promotional opportunities. Salaries were not equal for all employees doing equal jobs. Personal appearance and immage were used for promotion not job knowledge and experience. Long hours were expected during the busy weeks with little regard for personal lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair, honest and let employee know what is and isn't expected.
