    I worked at Prada full-time

    Pros

    Great team in my department Management team was very supportive Located on 5th Avenue

    Cons

    Some shifts end after 7pm. There's always one or two people who isn't the most pleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moral in mind when identifying who's right for the management team. Floor managers should be leaders like coaches, not bosses. Selling is a personal activity, low moral will negatively affect that ability.

    I have been working at Prada (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation , decent quality , paid time off paid sick time , provided uniform one hour lunch . Company provided holiday party. If your manager doesn't spend the holiday budget.

    Cons

    Terrible structure , worst manager I have ever worked for in 9+ plus years of retail experience and never had such a short sighted, ignorant, micro managing boss. Was completely shocked that someone with such a lacking skill set in sales and a feel for sales would be given a general manager position in a store

    I worked at Prada (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was under Prada Japan and USA. When we were under USA the sales incentives and commissions were great! The benefits and hours were flexible and the management worked around my school schedule.

    Cons

    It was very boring at times. I felt a bit uninspired and the sales staff is under a lot of pressure to perform but with little support from mnagement.

    Advice to Management

    the upper corporate management needs to not put so much pressure on the sales staff, but support them as some of their most valuable team members!

    Cons

    Holiday schedule and demands on making your goal for the month with no traffic

    Advice to Management

    It can't always be about numbers. Clients first will come back for the service and for the brand itself

    Pros

    Pay scale is higher than most other companies.

    Cons

    Not enough support from corporate. Most people do not want to help you as they feel it it is forbidden to help out. Which leaves you always wondering of you are doing your job correclty. There was also too much turn over. If you did build a relationship it would not last long as usually people leave with in two years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people not the product.

    Pros

    Make your money and leave. Decent money.

    Cons

    Management cares only about numbers. Fail to make numbers and you are fired. Promotions aren't normal from within unless within management. Sales to management promotions don't really exist. Cashiers to sales associates have happened.

    Advice to Management

    Be straight up with how the company is run so associates know what they're getting into.

    Pros

    great pay good benefits sometimes laid back

    Cons

    lack of respect towards the employees and management issues go unresolved management doesn't know how to manage unprofessional employees hours are exhausting

    Advice to Management

    Help build up the morale in the store. Create a more professional environment. Please start resolving issues, do not just have sit downs with the parties. Issues need to be resolved not just addressed.
