    Pros

    Having a great manager, and friendly environment; makes working here a nice a fun place. The clothes are unique, European style.

    Cons

    Be persistent on making goals, be willing to help your coworkers all the time. Success is not about one person, it's about a Team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I started as an sales associate, now I am the assistant manager. There's chances to grow in this company.

    Pros

    It's an average job in retail. It doesn't require much brain power nor experience. They teach as you go and even then it varies by store. Since it's a "high end" clothing store with the experience gained from here you can move onto a better company. You're allowed up to 8 items to buy at the store with your 70% retail priced clothes.

    Cons

    No raises unless promoted and even then it's difficult to be promoted. Unless you're bffs with the boss and the DM don't expect to get anywhere. Salary is basic. $9.50 in california for starting and the commission is lousy. 15$ per every $1k you sell and you won't see a dime of it unless you meet your goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change policies for commission and change the discount to something more competitive.

    Pros

    - great discount
    - great clothes
    - teamwork emphasis
    - commission

    Cons

    - diva store manager
    - you will not be promoted
    - your hrs will be cut ( called every other week to say "we're shaving hrs, don't come today")
    - bad behavior by management, co-workers alike
    - favoritism, narcissism, gossip, intimidation ect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - conduct background checks on management (false resume incidents). This results in ex-cons working in positions they are not qualified for.
    - give promotion opportunities
    - outlet is not boutique so give up the vision. Your backroom is not designed to fit all of your product. Renovate or Go back to the basics.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Sales Associate in New York, NY

    Pros

    Kind of a flexible schedule, if you need an off the manager will accommodate. I worked with some amazing people and kept friendships. If it weren't for them I wouldn't have stayed this long.

    Cons

    Many many cons but i will keep this short.
    You will be promised many things a the interviewing process but none will be completed.
    You will not be promoted or get any raise at any time, even if you worked there for 4 years.
    If you were hired as a part timer you will stay that way until you leave, they will promise you full time positions but that will not happen.
    Pay is terrible, commission is worse, they don't offer allowances but 70% off of everything as an employee discount.
    Clothes are over prices and are bad quality.
    Some people I worked with are just plain terrible and get away with things from management.
    Very high turn over.
    Over worked and under paid.
    Cheapest company I ever worked for.
    Upper and regional management are pure evil- do not care for the well being of staff only sales goals. (some are at least)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your company policies and culture, you hire terrible people and the sales associates get stuck with them. You have terrible branding, expect too much from employees and you are not willing to hear us or accommodate our needs. Stop lying and deceiving.
