    Pros

    You get to wardrobe shoes and clothes, discount is good

    Everyone is clique and catty, management sucks, still have to pay table fringe on wardrobe, not a shot you'll get a raise or move up within, you end up doing everything and anything and not any recognition

    Advice to Management

    get WHOLE new management

    I have been working at Michael Kors part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Getting to wear current apparel and getting it (almost) for free. We just have to pay the taxes on the "wardrobe" we receive each month.

    Cons

    The commission structure kinda makes it hard to make decent commission during the slow season of retail since you have the opportunity of making 1-5% on the products you sell.

    Advice to Management

    The DM needs to hire a store manager and assistant manager. Sales supervisors are stuck doing all this extra work that they are not compensated for.

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment everyone is friendly and is willing to help you learn to get acclimated to the store

    Cons
