I have been working at Duty Free Americas full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good exposure to meet people from different places, nothing else

Cons

Head managers are afraid of the owners and treat employees really bad, they dont care about employess at all. Schedules are insane! very long hours...salaries are low in comparison with expectations. Zero tolerance for mistakes.

Advice to Management

Definetely management needs to update their policies, promotions, happy employees produce more than miserable ones. Reviewieng company policies is a must.

    I worked at Duty Free Americas full-time

    Pros

    Meeting people from all around the world, The Airport it's self is great.

    Cons

    Management admitted they no longer care about the employees. Cutting hours, way to much managers and supervisors. The push us into sales that are hard to obtain when there are no passengers to sell to. They don't realize that with happy employees, you get happy customers and with happy customers you get good sales. But by telling us not to talk, socialize and stand in your assigned area, and never ever being told you are doing any kind of good makes for very poor sales. Won't work with scheduling issues such as kids, school and another job. They don't care. Period, end of subject! They yell at you and degrade you on the sales floor in front of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Care a bit more about your employees, your have happy employees you get better sales. Encourage growth, tell people once in a while that they are doing a good job. Thank them!

    I worked at Duty Free Americas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment (airport; boutique), luxury vendors, great customers

    Cons

    too much micromanaging, it was like the managers were obsessed with the employees. Very early or Very late shift hours; it was hard to balance life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    They hire within first, and it was very easy to move up. A lot of social promotion was going on at the time I was there.
