    I have been working at Randa Accessories part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    none, this company is horrible, stay away

    Cons

    micromanaged, underpaid, store module is not manageable because stores dont put out product between store visits allowing backstock to accumulate to the point where it is not manageable. Impossible expectations from ditzy managers. , management is a clique of cackling hyenas, Dont apply here if you are looking for stable supplemental income, and the income is laughable by industry standards and can only be considered supplemental and you will be treated like a surf from the middle ages. only apply if you are looking for a couple of months of work and enjoy demeaning and unprofessional atmosphere.

    I worked at Randa Accessories full-time

    Pros

    The fellow employees were super. Very hard working and dedicated.

    Cons

    Long hours are the norm with no reward. Management very unprofessional and has unrealistic expectations. Just mean. Never have I ever been treated so unprofessionally in the many years I have worked in the corporate world. It was shocking!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe your managers need some people training. It is as if they are dictators!

    Pros

    Growth potential is very high, benefits are affordable. Hard working hourly associates.

    Cons

    Lack of support from management. Unknown schedules. Job security no matter how hard you work, you never know if your next to be walked out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your supervisors and leads. When they need help give it to them and stand behind their decisions. Don't give them more departments they what they can handle. It is overwhelming and can causing shipping problems and deadlines to be missed.

    I have been working at Randa Accessories full-time

    Pros

    The only true positive quality of this company are the employees who work under extremely dysfunctional management.

    Cons

    Extremely controlling management, who treat employees as objects that can be push aside and abused. Owner Jeff Spiegel has a little man's complex and walks around the office only choosing to say hello to random employees. He and his motley management crew and truly the B team, and in any other corporate environment these fools would be fired for acting so poorly. They have absolutely no clue how to manage people or build a true positive space for people to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I know Jeff's goal is to build this company to a billion dollar company, he'll never make it with this current tactics. There were several large Retailers during June market that said they have stopped doing business with Randa due to the lies and deception. Too much lost business on the retail side. People are becoming wise to the lies and poor partnership from Randa with retailers, and aren't putting up with it any longer.

    I worked at Randa Accessories full-time

    Pros

    Worked with some great people

    Cons

    poor leadership at the executive level - poor planning and zero communication - it is as if every aspect of the corporation's direction is a secret. Continued growth is great but there seem to be no plans to sustain it and no management structure to support it - control of the company is very centralized and held by only a few top executives who seem to have no ability to delegate responsibility so that multiple strategies can be executed simultaneously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a class - develop people - delegate - understand the details of the business operations better - have some understanding of what you are asking people to do - be concerned with efficiencies - create a management structure and allow VP's to handle some of the projects that are currently controlled by only the few top exec's. there is a hole in the organizational chart that is affecting the company's ability to grow along with the pace of aquisitions

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable portfolio, family owned business for over 80 years,

    Cons

    Extremely low wages, mean supervisors. Expect employees to work overtime and not get paid. Very low employee morale. No room for advancement or growth. Company spends a lot of money acquiring other companies but do not give decent raises to employees to live on to support families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should recognize how dissatisfied employees are. This company has a reputation for treating employees bad.

    Pay your employees for their dedication and services to the overall company
