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

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities to advance, incentives for performance. Above average hourly pay rate.

    Cons

    Some store level mangers don't provide sufficient training and support, corporate is sadly out of touch with store level challenges, not enough oversight of store managers. If sales numbers are good, they can get away with poor behavior and policy violations.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate level personnel should spend at least a week in stores to better understand the challenges. Consider associates POV, more oversight of store manager performance and efficacy.

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

    Pros

    Small corporate structure enabling access you wouldnt normally have with larger retailers. Competetive pay structure

    Cons

    Where to start...zero opportunity for advancement beyond Store Manager. Poor training structure with very outdated material. No room for learning from mistakes and no assistance available when it comes to unfamiliar issues. High pressure atmosphere. President of the outlet retail division micro manages everything and has zero people skills...elitist with the wrong background to be heading up a retail division of an organization.

    Advice to Management

    Steal shamelessly from other successful retail companies in order to improve on people relations.

    I worked at Movado Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive hourly pay, decent benefits, mediocre sales training, some recognition and perks like nice dinners if you're "in" with the upper management and not on the short list. Good experience to add to a resume.

    Cons

    VERY high-pressured, uncomfortable sales environment. Horrible commission structure- it's an absolute joke. 1% of sales for low volume stores, if you're lucky you'll make 2% around holiday season. Only employees that bank on commission capping out at 4% are the ones who work in high volume stores. Upper management is very cliquey and you are either "in" or "out" and you know it. There is little-to-no support from upper management when it comes to mentoring and training new and junior management. They would rather support their favorites in the high volume stores that are making them money. Upper management abides by the "carrot and stick" approach being stingy with the carrot and very heavy with the stick.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns and take action before you lose them. Take a look at your turnover and evaluate!
