    I have been working at Diesel (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great products, quality denim/leather/shoes/timeframes, edgy marketing and social media presence, 3% commission on all sales, $40 bonus for transactions $1200+ pre-tax, 50% employee discount + twice a year employee appreciation (50% off sale price), 30-60 min meal break, vacation/sick/personal days that escalate with tenure, 401k, great medical/dental benefits, OK visual benefits, company match a small % for 401k

    Cons

    # of vacation days and rate of day increase not very fair, vacation days do not begin until first January of being full time (I started as part-time in 2011), $20 bonuses for sales $650-1199 pre-tax were taken away January 2017, staffs were cut members to cover Budget projections (for example, my store lost our visual merchandiser and two full time sales stylist roles, cancelled our store's remodel promises, vision benefits are poor/limiting

    Advice to Management

    Value store employees more from the top, visiting corporate heads could/should interact more with sellers and supervisors to strengthen morale and inspire business practices, more realistic (with the economy) nation-wide contests among sellers and management, change plan of action for inspiring store management to lead/inspire rest of team

    Pros

    Health insurance is the best. Also, the vacation policy is pretty good if you've been here for a long time.

    Cons

    Every two years there's a change in management which comes with massive layoffs. Seriously, there's no job security even for top performers. Bonuses don't get paid out regardless of how well your annual review has gone. Some people here haven't gotten raises in the entire time they've been here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing course every two years. Also, pay people what they're owed in bonus!
