    • Comp & Benefits
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Benefits available because they are needed in order to work in the fast paced setting. Can be accommating on certain things. Some of the time you meet the most interesting humble customers.

    Cons

    Difficult to staff. Underpaid for amount of work that is accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    STOP!!THINK about the workers. Growing too fast. Please iconsider OSHA or going for the green will be futile in the short run. For gods sake, pay the 30 min "break". Most of all the new survey thing, survey the employees from within. Factor in that the employees are not robots.

    I worked at Z Gallerie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great bonuses, great interaction with people from all over, great learning experience for the field, room to climb up the corporate ladder, and beautiful work environment.

    Cons

    You may have no days off for two weeks or more. Get called in A LOT if you prove to be reliable. This company does not recognize all holidays. Managers cut corners for themselves and protect each other but use or throw their associates under the bus. A lot of passed judgment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Don't be SO competitive.

    I have been working at Z Gallerie full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They support college/university schedules. 35% off for full-time and 30% off for part-time employees

    Cons

    30 minute break without pay. A lot of merchandise is from China, you can afford the 30 minutes break employees take.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better operating system. Pay your employees the 30 minutes break.

    I worked at Z Gallerie part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management team was awesome and the sales team were a great bunch as well.

    Cons

    Company owners don't seem to have a unified plan for how the store should function. I often witnessed store managers get frustrated at the changes owners would make to the way the store should function...often times changes seemed to create more redundancy and less business sense. Company owners didn't seem to give management the feeling as being approachable.

    Advice to Management

    Get through to the owners or watch the business fade.

    Pros

    Family owned company going to corporate and I think they are doing it in great stride! The company has never been in better shape and there is lots of room for growth and really adding value to the company. I feel like my opinions are value and respected. I enjoy all my co-workers whom are long time Z Gallerie employees - it's not unusual to bump into someone who has been with the company over 10+ years. They celebrate holidays with BBQ's or cupcakes and they try to make the environment fun!

    Cons

    Insurance is a little high and based off your salary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to let your employees add value!

    Pros

    co workers try to do everything to help each other out, and most have the company's and customer well in mind.

    Cons

    higher up treats employees like they are disposable and doesn't acknowledge them when they should be praised for the work that they have put out. Never any inventory, returns take months to process

    Advice to Management

    listen to the workers on the field they know when things should be selling and how to assist customer's as they see them day in and out. also customer service has great ideas on how to do a better job for the company with processing, listen to them.

    Pros

    Nice concept and Co-workers. Fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Upper management not well informed about their employees needs. Cheap products made in China. Everything is a secret. Too much drama.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should be ashamed of the way they treat their employees. No room for advancement. Not really good incentives. Would not recommend this job to the worst of my enemies .

    Pros

    Co-workers become family Fun atmosphere Employee discount Rewarding client relationship building

    Cons

    There is a lot of drama within this company; from corporate to district management to then the stores Lost of gossiping about employees, nationwide Catty behavior in the store between co-workers

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like the matter, not disposable You are always better off hiring within instead of from outside. A lot of great people left your company because you used and abused them without any recognition
