    I worked at Perfumania Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and great work environment made Perfumania the ideal place to work. I enjoyed every moment at work helping customers finding that perfect sent for them.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of room for advancement although I wish I still worked for the company, financially they couldn't pay the salary that I needed and deserved. Although I left the company for a better salary, I am proud to say that I'm an executive for another successful company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your managers a higher base salary. In order to be the best you must first pay for the best.

    Pros

    Absolutely wonderful people working at the store level!

    Cons

    Poor corporate culture.
    Poor pay and benefits.
    No consistent annual review system in place. Pay increases non existent or below standard.
    In everything they do managment shows they care very little about the individuals that drive the sales.

    Advice to Management

    Pay individuals fairly, stop takeaways!
    Stop blaming the stores when sales decline due to poor marketing, lack of product customers want, and increasing online competition.
    Stop focus on sales metrics and concentrate on developing customer relationships to improve repeat business.
