  4. "Fun Atmosphere, Upper Management Issues"

    I worked at B.J. Vines full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment, great brand identity, like-minded coworkers, clothing discount, decent pay

    Cons

    After replacing a lot of the upper management and selling to Steve Madden, the product was not what it used to be and there were ALWAYS sales. This meant that regular customers knew they should never pay full price and just wait it out. Meanwhile, all the pressure was put upon the salespeople to keep numbers unreasonably high. Sad they went out of business, but the people on the sales floor saw it coming a mile away.

    I worked at B.J. Vines (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment to work in. Great team of like minded people. Great team spirit that truly represented the brand.

    Cons

    Very disorganized at times. Sometimes felt like a revolving door with constant hirings and firings going on. Crazy hours at times. Sometimes double the hours you were paid for.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of the lower level people understand that a work/life balance can benifit everyone.

    I worked at B.J. Vines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful and fun environment to work in. Great coworkers who love fashion and working with others. Great clothing allowance and vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Limited upper management which leads to little direction. This can be good if you are self directed and think on your feet. Management must work weekends and holidays. This was retail so peak seasons can be demanding.

    Advice to Management

    I found management easy to approach but they were often busy due to constant travel and excessive job responsibilities.

    Great work enviornment, very fun doesn't feel like work.

    Cons

    The only down side is people don't leave, which limits growth opportunities.
