    Pros

    Classy and professional place to work, decent sales training

    Cons

    Base pay is less than minimum wage, with 2% comission. Some of the sales people are more agressive. The company wants you to wear a current piece all the time so you will have to buy 1 or 2 items per season. They evaluate you on a grading scale that puts you in competition with everyone else in your store, your sales per hour are compared to the stores average sales per hour and if you are 110% above it you move up a grade and if you are 90% below you move down a grade. If you have a low grade for so many weeks you will be let go

    I have been working at Danier Leather full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *Strong emphasis on growth
    *great support from Upper management and DMs
    * Your input is valued at every stage to help satisfy the customer
    *Strong focus on customer service

    Cons

    *Huge time commitment. You are expected to put in as many hours as required to make your budget with no additional compensation or overtime. You are always "on call"

    Advice to Management

    A Career position, you get out what you put in. I love working for Danier, but mostly because I want to grow. IF you are interested in a Retail MAnagement career as a stepping stone to a larger end, this is not the position for you.

    Discounts were good, fellow employees make the job fun and exciting.

    Cons

    Store management is unorganized, head office is unorganized causing individual stores issues with promotions, not always fair with hours and covering shifts

    Advice to Management

    Be professional


  4. "They give you 5% commission on sales but your salary still won't amount to much because they pay below minimum wage."

    Work was very easy (except during the holidays when it's super busy) and you get employee discount on all store items.

    Number of hours vary and you get sent home early if the store is not busy. Sometimes you get less that 20 hrs a week, especially in the summertime.

    Give more incentives to employees

    Pros

    Beautiful garments, great discounts, friendly team members and good hours.
    Head office staff always aware of what is going on in the stores.

    Cons

    Sometimes counting inventory wasn't safe. Dangerous conditions due to unaccessible garments that were stacked up to the ceiling. Needs to be revised.

    Advice to Management

    There is a clear set of customer return policies, however managers are very lenient and let customers get away with anything.
