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

    Pros

    Easy training and quick to make commission. The teams are a very close knit family and all stores work well together

    Cons

    There is a huge focus on only selling Travalos, Spa, and Manager Specials. Your performance is mainly based off your ability to sell only those three items. Very little consideration is taken for UPT or ADS. They let it slide for so long and then all of a sudden, they are saying get the numbers up or "action will be taken".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change up what we are supposed to push, understand that 32oz of lotion doesn't need to be sold to every single person that walks in the door. Also, consider what you're doing to store moral when you constantly cut the amount of commission or number of items we get commission on. 50 cents isn't worth lying to a customer to try to get them to buy Snooki Couture instead of Light Blue.

    Pros

    Gained knowledge, great atmosphere, customer service was the number one priority, management was the best.

    Cons

    It's retail so the hours are never the same, and sometimes the customers weren't always the most pleasant.

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

    Pros

    Lively atmosphere, great staff, loyal customer base and perfume - what's not to love?

    Cons

    2 year salary freeze, complicated promos, medical insurance rates nearly doubled, inattentive upper management,outdated POS system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff when they have issues and follow up from time to time. Ignoring the problem is a sign that you just don't care.
