    I worked at Vince as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Vrery exciting time to have be an intern at Vince. The company had just started it's own internship program separate from Kellwood, was moving to a larger office and really expanding their product selection and offering. Employee morale seemed to be very high, the CEO was very friendly, overall great environment.

    Cons

    internship program was new and not as established.

    Be consistent. Help your store employees, as they are the ones selling the product and driving sales for the company as a whole. Knowledge is power.

    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.

    Great Potential - But Disappointing.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Vince part-time (less than an year)

    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

    I worked at Vince full-time (less than an year)

    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.
