    Pros

    Ability to stay on top of luxury trends. Built long term friendships with other team members.

    Cons

    No growth. Promotions are given based primarily on physical appearance. This creates key management personnel who don 't really know what they are doing - and leads to high turnover when they fail themselves and their team. Little to no support from upper management. No training on how to manage people. Any training is based on auditing and operations. Many in upper management have a bad approach and lack respect and tact when speaking to their direct reports. Issues become very black and white as creative thinkers and problem solvers continue to leave the company in droves. The influence from the parent company Gap Inc. has created a rigid and corporate environment in what used to be a cutting edge, fun and exciting place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When key employees are leaving at an alarming rate it's time for a "come to Jesus" moment. Revisit the original culture the company was built on.

    Pros

    Great clothes and brands, opportunity to gain access into the luxury space, and somewhat flexible work hours

    Cons

    Hard to advance your career. Promotions do not come easy or fast. Rather higher above you that advance you.

    I have been working at Intermix part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Intermix has some great products, good clientele, and benefits for full-time employees.

    Cons

    There is a lack of structure throughout the company and it's daily operations. Local state meal break laws are seldom followed. Employees with real talent in selling, styling, and merchandising are not celebrated and usually leave out of frustration. Stores aren't always stocked in such a way where sales employees can make their commission. There is never enough product or the wrong type for that demographic. Upper management has no real respect for the people who work below them. The general attitude in many stores is snarky and petty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create systems for every little thing that goes on during the day in a store. The buying team needs to rethink their strategies for stores which cater to older demographics. Don't be threatened by new team members below you who may be smarter, more talented, etc. No one is going to steal your job. Treat everyone with respect and dignity.

    A Great Place to get Fashion Retail Experience, but Not Much Else

    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Intermix

    Pros

    Intermix is one of the best places in New York to get fashion retail experience -- it beats working at larger higher-end chain stores like Club Monaco or even smaller boutiques. You get to work with high-end clientele on luxury goods.

    Cons

    Sometimes the clients who come into the Intermix stores can be a bit haughty and unfriendly, making the workplace sometimes an unenjoyable place. There doesn't seem to be a lot of opportunities for promotion or long-term careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd recommend instituting a more clear system of promotion, and I'd also want more clear guidelines for interns in your New York offices.
