    I worked at Le Mystère part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Contracted so made my own hours. I learned about working in wholesale and communicating/working with accounts. Put some b2b experience under my belt.

    Cons

    Contracted (1099) so paid heavy taxes on my own, no health insurance, and received no compensation for miles driven. In the end, what I was keeping after all that wasn't even enough to pay for my health insurance. Job was almost a wash in pay. For one trip to the meeting, the consultants had to bunk four to a room. Also the company had only temporarily become hugely successful because Oprah said she was wearing their bra on her show once. Once that excitement died down, so did the sales. The quality of the garments was good, but the fit wasn't the best. The lingerie market is highly competitive. The company was sold recently so maybe the direction will change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication was poor between the consultants and corporate, and the compensation wasn't going to retain top talent.

    The pay is decent. The flexibility is great, especially if you have kids. You make your own hours.

    Job instability. Outrageous quotas and low mileage pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to problem solve vs. lets just fire everyone.

    Pros

    The people there are friendly and warm.
    The job was not overly difficult.
    Very supportive coworkers.

    Cons

    Work became repetitive.
    At times, expectations were a bit unclear. (could be a positive)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laying down some concrete guidelines would be helpful.
    It was a pleasure to work with the staff, keep up the friendly atmosphere.

    I worked at Le Mystère

    Pros

    Met a few nice people that I still keep in touch with today, but like myself they are no longer working there...surprise, surprise.

    Cons

    Dictatorship, no room for advancement unless you're willing to be a suck up. Little or no benefits to working here. Bad reputation in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you tell your people that you want their input you should actually mean it. You had some very loyal, dedicated people who ended up being tossed aside like yesterday's news. You should treat people better.
