    Pros

    Limitless amount of commission to be made, they are super flexible with hours and are open when you need time off.

    Cons

    They are not good at work life balance. They promote people that should not be promoted then even when they crash and burn management refuses to remove them

    Pros

    The promotional sales great to offer customers & we match Perfumania.com prices.

    Cons

    The foot traffic is 1 customer about every 3-4 hours. So trying to offer everything in a sale is unlikely to be sold to a customer who only wants a fragrance.

    Advice to Management

    The store in San Francisco Ca. Is a tourist location, the tourist want high end fragrance not our house brands. Our demographic is different from stores 20 miles out of San Francisco Ca.

    Pros

    Customers , learning new fragrances, commission , making sales goal and encouraging your staff to be better and see it happen

    Cons

    As long as you work hard and follow rules there are no cons. Well working over 45 hours a week can sometimes be a con if staff calls of and the mall is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Pay managers more .

    I worked at Perfumania full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Customers are typically very nice, commission on everything you sell, and spiff on select items and that's it.

    Cons

    ZERO work life balance! Low pay! No clear training in place for anyone! ZERO support from upper management!! No employee hand book to speak of! No operational guidelines for the store!! Very unrealistic scheduling guidelines that store managers have to adhere to!! Outdated systems in the stores! Very little communication between DM and the stores! All in all run run fast in the opposite direction of this company!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Create a training system! Give stores a handbook for the store and for each employee to take home! Communicate with the stores and listen to them!

    I worked at Perfumania part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned to work more efficiently and quickly when the store got busy. I used the cashier more often and am experienced with it. The work life was balanced, everyone worked to reach there goals for the store and help one another when necessary. Some benefits I received were commissions from selling particular fragrances, and employee discount.

    Cons

    training went smoothly , I don't see any cons from this job experience.
