    I worked at Elie Tahari part-time

    Pros

    Clothing Allowance for Work Clothes and a great discount for employees

    Cons

    6% commission on sales after monthly goal was reached but my goal as a part time employee and student was as much as the full time associated and Unachievable for me all but one month during my 9 months there; bad communication with the higher ups of the company; forced to wear heels although I informed them of my bad problems with scoliosis and edema. Also was urged to full face of makeup- given a bad review by boss regarding my dress for"not wearing heels once or twice and that I should wear lipstick"

    Advice to Management

    Ones most vital assets are their employees, be more realistic and considerate of their health needs

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Elie Tahari (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online, and was contacted a week later. My first interview I met with a production manager, who then passed me off to a Director. After having a great conversation with the director, I met with the interim VP, who's first question to me was "Are you willing to work late nights and weekends". My second interview was set for the next day with Human Resources. A huge red flag went off, when the HR manager told me one of her least favorite things about the company was the way Elie spoke to all of his employees, all the time. Regardless, I was scheduled to meet with Elie a couple days later. As always, I arrived 15 minutes early to my interview, and continued to wait for over an hour, before Elie's assistant came into the room and said, "We need to reschedule, he's about 3 hours behind". There was no apology for having to cancel, after making me wait an hour. Almost 4 weeks later, I received a call from the VP, who had just started back with the company. She wanted to know if I was still interested in the position and if I'd be willing to come in to meet with her. I told her I was still interested and went to meet with her the next day. The interview lasted 7 minutes, exactly 7 minutes. During that time, I was asked my desire salary, in which I was told that I may have to be negotiable, as this was such a great opportunity (my salary requirements are not even high for this position). Another interview with Elie was set up the following week. I arrived 15 minutes early and 2 minutes before the scheduled time, I was informed that Elie had to cancel the interview again. Again the VP contacted me to see if I could come in again to meet with Elie. I stated that although this was not something I would bring up at this stage, I needed to make sure the salary was in the ballpark of my desired salary, because if not, it was not worth it to continue this process. I never heard back from her again.

    It was the most disorganized and disrespectful interview process I have ever been on. I'm glad it didn't pan out, because I've never heard a good thing about working for this company.
