    I have been working at Michael Kors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Learning Experience; various deadlines, must be punctual.
    -In depth training.

    Cons

    -8 am conference calls on your day off. Paper work deadlines on your day off in the morning before the conference call.
    -Too much office hour paper work!
    -micromanagement x 1,000

    Advice to Management

    Let the managers work on the floor and actually make sales verses completing all these unnecessary documents that no one is reading. We understand the purpose but can we focus more on the sale floor activity and really building a strong dominant team? Where's the time for that in a day?

    I worked at Michael Kors part-time

    Pros

    Employee discount, commission, clothing allowance.

    Cons

    When I first started in 2012 the company was doing really well. Fantastic managers were jumping on board and once the company began to decline all of the good employees began leaving. Management's turn over rate increased significantly with people that had no clue as to what they were doing.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management like DM's and RM's need to train store managers appropriately.
