    I worked at Fortunoff full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working environment or people that work for this company are main reason people stay and work for this company for a long time, it almost seems like you have second family

    Cons

    Looks like you have to be at good place at good time so you get to advance within company. Also at times it may seem like it depends on who you know

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with people running departments

    I worked at Fortunoff full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work;
    Decent pay for being retail;
    Good job if you are in school and need cash.

    Cons

    Super boring. Some days there is nothing at all to do. But once in a while there is a ton of work. There is never an in between. For the most part, just really boring. Definitely not a company to have a career. Not many career opportunities besides being a sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Stop opening up so many stores so soon and so close to each other.

    Pros

    The enviroment was clean. Co-workers were mostly pleasant. There were incentives durintg the busy holiday seasons as well as rallys and trying to get productivity from employees. You were treated like family for many years when Mr. Fortunoff was alive. Employee benefits were good as well as the discount.

    Cons

    Management was deceptive when it came to promotional opportunities. Salaries were not equal for all employees doing equal jobs. Personal appearance and immage were used for promotion not job knowledge and experience. Long hours were expected during the busy weeks with little regard for personal lives.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, honest and let employee know what is and isn't expected.

  8. "Customer Service"

    Pros

    Good people in the company, steady wage

    Cons

    The higher ups under value employees. They would rather have mediocre people than pay great people accordingly.
