    Pros

    Great company to work for, benefits and compensation are rewarding if you work hard to achieve them. The company is large for a luxury retailer but still invests and cares about their employees.

    Cons

    the company does not always have patience when it comes to meeting goals and building a strong business. the process of building a strong business may take a little bit of time, but any amount of time may be too long.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan to build a team and client business well in advance if you decide to work for this employer. They will reward your hard work if you exceed the goals, planning is key.

    Pros

    Fair and competitive base pay, commission rate is generous. Upward mobility and opportunities to grow within the company are definitely present.

    Cons

    Company changes often and requires quick adaptation to new expectations and standards. Inventory and ops system are outdated.

    Advice to Management

    The company should be more uniform when it comes to working hours and policies in regards to flagship stores and leased departments.

    Pros

    Guaranteed full time hours, great discount. Good holiday bonuses with realistic goals for it.

    Cons

    misplanned monthly goals, makes it possible to may some months and impossible to make others. Management thinks they're way more entitled than the rest when they are hardly there.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at your management and what they do for the store.

    Pros

    Great clothing allowance & healthy discount. Benefits package was generous.

    Cons

    It was literally like being in the movie - "Devil Wears Prada". Suggesting I loose weight ( 5 pounds) while reviewing my meal selections. Being barked at like a dog & working very long hours without a shred of appreciation or acknowledgment. Don't expect to have a personal life, as upper management didn't care or have one themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip! It's F'n retail - selling over priced goods that NOBODY needs!!!! HONESTLY!!!!

    Pros

    Great product great discount good people to work with. Company has many good qualities at another location that follow the rules and abide bye what they are supposed to do and the company expectations. In my current location we weren't allowed to have weekends off and our store is open every single day so we were wired to work most holidays if not all.

    Cons

    Speaking to HR would normally be considered confidential, but with this company that's not the case.


  10. A company that will return a favor if they really want to keep you

    Pros

    One is able to be independent. Having connections within only helps guarantee your success. Those who don't speak up, will typically end up leaving on a bad note. If you want to get a promotion, you cannot be afraid to reach out and speak with upper level management. Typically store level management is too afraid to promote from within.

    Cons

    Very time demanding. Say goodbye to spending the week of christmas with family, especially if they are out of state.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage positions, while ignoring future prospects from within. A company can only grow from the inside. Thats where the knowledge and experience really is when pertaining to organizational culture.

    Pros

    Not much. Because there is high turnover, there is opportunity to move up, but you have to be pretty dedicated and thick-skinned to stick it out here.

    Cons

    Poorly maintained office, terrible supervisor, no work-life balance, poor pay, outdated systems and technology and catty, gossiping, shallow coworkers. Just awful. The hours are grueling, there is no personal space, the interns and merchandise assistants are treated like slaves. The teams are run inefficiently.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to begin...
