    I have been working at Capelli NY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I came across the Glassdoor page for my company while working on a project and I was surprised to see the mixed reviews.
    There are great employees at Capelli and many of us are friends outside of work.
    The majority of the senior management are very professional and have been around for a while with a vast knowledge in the business.
    My supervisor is one of the best managers I have ever come across; very understanding and very professional.

    Cons

    No flexibility in the schedule.
    A couple senior managers are terrible and have a bad reputation.
    I avoid them at all cost
    No matching on the 401k!! ( Otherwise I would have rated the company 5 stars)

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and establish a flexible schedule!!

    I worked at Capelli NY full-time

    Pros

    After many years in the industry, and six months working here, i can honestly say i learned nothing whatsoever. After a small time of working w management, i saw absolutely no POSITIVE attributes and knew immediately i was not going to stick around too long.

    Cons

    As a seasoned sales executive, the first thing the top tier management will do is rationalize how you should not make much money and use fuzzy math behind their irrational logic. No place for advancement or long term achievements. Seasoned and well trained sales professionals are better off anywhere else then here where they promote total negative energy and low self esteem. Watch out for the top dogs who will make you feel diminutive only because they are a psychopathic family unit that hasnt allowed good people to "move up" ever. STAY AWAY! Working with low quality and low class people is no life!

    Advice to Management

    Most industry insiders all agree that after visiting w your company leaders, they feel like taking a long shower. LISTEN instead of knowing everything.

    Pros

    Get a lot of industry experience only reason why I gave 2 stars because what I learned here got me a better job.

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    No overtime
    Cheap raises
    Uptight and snobby environment even though the place is a pigsty
    Get treated like a child
    Upper management sucks. They are very rude and mean and think they are Miranda from Devils Wears Prada.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a robot and learn to treat your employees with the respect they deserve.

    I have been working at Capelli NY full-time

    Pros

    - I genuinely enjoy working at Capelli. Hard work is valued they promote from within. Hours are long but flexible with opportunity of acquiring overtime. I truly feel that I'm part of a big family and have been extremely happy overall. I've been blessed to be working along side great individuals who make the workload not feel overwhelming.

    Cons

    - No 401K match
    - Insurance cost is too high
    - National Holidays off only
    - Workload can be overwhelming at times but it is overall manageable

    Advice to Management

    You will reap what you sow. Continue to invest in your employees and the company will flourish. Take the time to listen and value the opinion of others.

    They sometimes let you have leftover food from big meetings.

    Cons

    Oh boy, where do I start..... there are too many to list. This place is the worst work experience you can possibly have. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this company.

    there are none. zero . leaving would be the only pro
    please believe all the reviews and save yourself from this place

    Cons

    this is one of the most disgusting companies or places any one has ever encountered . they hire people right out of college so they can manipulate them and treat them like crap. this place is full of fashion rejects. if you stay here you become just as abusive mean and miserable. the pay is probably the lowest in the industry. the products are all counterfeit and shouldn't even be considered fashion. you are not allowed to breathe.
    you are talked down to and abused. they want you to work long hours and pay no over time. all the benefits are terrible . the place is dirty and disgusting . all the positive reviews here are lies and written by upper management
