    I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees are extremely knowledgeable in their respective areas of expertise. Also, there are many opportunities to go to sample sales held by different divisions within the company.

    Cons

    Don't expect to make crazy amounts of money or get many raises. Sometimes run like a "mom and pop" business which results in unfair pay for employees low on the totem pole.
