    Former Employee - Store Sales Manager in Rehoboth Beach, DE

    I worked at Perfumania Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great relationship with District Managers, they go above and beyond for their workers. The pay is partial commission, so if you are motivated by sales, the sky is the limit in the commission you can earn. Offer bonuses and incentives

    Cons

    Corporate is so far removed from the stores. They request that Store Managers work a minimum of 44 hrs/week during the regular season, and 48-50 hrs/week during the holiday season on a salaried pay. They go out of their way to figure out how to not pay their employees. Many weeks where payroll made a "mistake" and our earnings would be incorrect, or not paid out. Bonuses were paid out sometimes 6 months after promised. After leaving the company, it took 3 months to get my final earnings paid out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work one week in your stores and see all the hard work that goes on even after you mess up their pay checks.

    I have been working at Perfumania Holdings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Manager bonuses, Loss prevention bonuses, yearly meetings, fair commission rate on top of base salary. District and regional managers are very helpful in training you to be the best sales person you can be.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement once you hit store manager. Long work hours. 44 hrs a week not including breaks...so you're at 48hrs a week now.
