    Pros

    The discounts used to be amazing. They used to give you 75% off and now they just give you 40% off.

    Cons

    The management team and the sales associates are extremely divided. When a manager and an associate are scheduled together whether one is just a key holder or a ASM they will sit in the back and just play on their phones. They talk in different languages to one another so staff doesn't understand what they are saying. It was the most uncomfortable environment. They also under-pay their employees and give unnecessary high pressure. They also expect part time associates to work full time hours- and they are highly unappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enhance leadership skills along with team building exercise.

    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation hours. Communication between company is great! Fairly new company but they are definitely coming up in the retail word since IPO went public last year.

    Cons

    Hard selling techniques, strict dress code, rude clients but company is great overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with better training for new employees.

    Pros

    Small staff-almost family like
    Clothing allowance
    Slow paced
    No commission so no sharking

    Cons

    Because we are a small staffed store, there are always drama.
    Clothing allowance is only used on MFO (because it's an outlet store)
    No bonuses
    No perks or benefits for part time associate

    Pros

    40% Discount, 401k, Health Insurance, People at the Key holder level and down are some of the nicest people I've ever worked with. Clothing allowance is a set list of items but it's free clothes so thats a plus. You will learn a lot here and its a perfect step to gaining retail experience for the next job.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive managers. Constant micromanagement. Poor treatment of product in stock room. Constant expectation to assail 'clients' with thank you notes, emails, during slower hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect your subordinates to be mind readers. Remember this is clothing retail not heart surgery and take it down a notch. Stay professional and don't discuss other employee issues outside of the office.

    Great company

    Current Employee - Sales Associate

    Pros

    It is a very slow-paced store, so this gives you an opportunity to get personal with every client and build relationships. Quality of the clothes are superb! The starting pay is better than most and the employee discount rocks. Must know the pieces by the proper name and the sometimes odd names for the colors (It's not a gray half placket blouse its a DOVE half placket blouse.) A lot of orders over the phone. I enjoy the casual vibe of the store and the clients that are loyal to the brand. Room for growth and relocation if needed. I really enjoy working for Vince.

    Cons

    It is sometimes hard to make your sale goals when there are 4 people working and a single person walks in every so often. Sometimes I feel HR doesn't care about input.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your store associates. I should never be told "I don't want to hear it." when I try to give feedback.

    Pros

    Yea, can't think of any. Maybe the discount but now it's only 40% off retail.

    Cons

    Horrible management, rude co-workers, anti-team atmosphere, negative environment, cramped office, crazy turn over and they value longevity over experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone and start fresh.
