    I worked at G-III Apparel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and sample sales but due to so many people lending their passes to past employees , friends & family that it's very hard to get items at the sale.

    Cons

    Management needs to be reevaluated, they are very abusive and upper management knows that this type of treatment is going on but does nothing to change the environment. SVP's are aware of they person with the issue but has yet to act on trying to fix the issues!!!

    Advice to Management

    Relook at your management teams. Some people are in high positions that they clearly are not mature enough to have. The company is aware of it and still allow the belittling of employees by their supervisors.

    I worked at G-III Apparel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the remaining big companies in the industry. Great brands, good location. Benefits were decent, but not the best I have had.

    Cons

    Abusive working environment with Sammy and Marc. My own boss threw me under the bus to them, to disguise her own short-comings. No support staff, and incredibly old systems that are time consuming to work with. Lines were late, and it was very frustrating to have appointments without new product. No innovation to speak of, and when you try to bring new ideas, they were not interested. It was Sammy's way or the highway.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone, treat them with respect, you may find your employees want to work harder for you, feel loyal and motivated. Recognize where the real issues are in your company, and address them, rather than making others scape goats.

    I worked at G-III Apparel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, do not go there. You will regret it.

    Cons

    Horrible place. Ruthless management. They do not care about their employees. Work hours are long and you are expected to stay. It’s impossible to catch up on work. They understaff on purpose. Very cheap. I don’t know how they are a public company. They are shady and I’m sure their accounting is very unorthodox. They should be investigated. High turnover. Horrible benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Leave. This place is run like a sweatshop from the 60s and 70s. Stop bullying your employees. Invest in automation.

    Pros

    The demand for high quality work is a must. Insuring that all you do is produce great product. Everything is well explained.

    Cons

    Limited in few areas. The people can make or break the synergy to good business. Advancing positions becomes difficult even if successful.
