    Pros

    Excellent luxury selling environment. High quality clothing for various budgets means that one is able to sell to various levels clientele without much push back because of pricing

    Cons

    The People that are placed in management lacked the selling skills necessary to push to brand to new levels. The sales reps were responsible for bringing in most of the business while management received all of the accolades

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way the retail business was operated years ago when the customer was the first priority. That's when RL was RL. No one or no luxury retail company was close to our level

    Pros

    flexible work hours during the holidays

    Cons

    wages were low and not enough hours, too may part time employees, instead of full time employees to work more hours, some of us are trying to make a living, you had a bunch of kids working that didn't care about anything but the employee discount

    Advice to Management

    remember your employees names
