I worked at Barneys (Less than a year)
good hourly pay but that's because the minimum wage is already $15.
a few amazing individuals as coworkers
not a hard job at all-- just don't take anything personally.
chill environment, mostly not intense or competitive.
high turnover but only because associates leave for something bigger and better.
standing for 8 hours on cement floor.
coworkers between departments and sometimes within can be very childish, petty, and entitled.
rarely, there can be entitled clients.
sometimes the week can be very slow, so lower paycheck.
having to use personal phones to text clients.
everyone loves to gossip.
petty coworkers can try to stir the pot on purpose just because, sadly, that's all they have going on in their lives.
those who gossip are considered favorites among management.
Advice to Management
it is so not professional to gossip about everyone. if it's negative, no need to pass on your false assumptions to other managers/associates. keep it to yourself.
very two faced.
I applied online. I interviewed at Barneys in July 2017.
Relaxed, comfortable it consisted of questions regarding product knowledge, retail experience .they were friendly , honest and gave me some expectations that they like from their sales associates .
