    I worked at Movado Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Annual conference get-away IF you weren't on the bad list that year. 401K matched to 3% and opportunity to purchase stock. Given a stipend towards the purchase of a watch for personal use once probation period ends.

    Cons

    EVERY KPI is measured and if you happen to be low on just one you are ridiculed, spoken down to and reminded that you can be replaced. You are either part of the "clique" or become the victim of interrogation by the National trainer. The style of leadership used can best be described as: "The carrot or the stick"!

    Advice to Management

    There's no advice that they would be open to ...

    Pros

    The benefits and 401k are very competitive. The overall environment and people are lovely. Work life balance is very good. The friends and family sales are a cherry on top.

    Cons

    Transportation is cumbersome for those who live in the city. Management is a little dated and set in their old ways can be a disheartening for new talent to contribute to change.

    I worked at Movado Group part-time

    Pros

    When I started working at Movado, I had no experience in retail but I was hired and the pay start was $12 an hour when at that time minimum wage was $7.50. I was given an amazing opportunity to learn sales and the employees I worked with were very patient and understanding. They always had my back and wanted me to strive.

    Cons

    While working at the store where I was employed, they literally went through 6-7 different managers and assistant managers in a span of 4-5 years. One even had a criminal background. After time, they cut hours and began to let employees go to save money and any new employees hired were paid less. Also, if you are looking to advance in the company, it takes years before they would even consider training you for assistant manager or even key holder. Very few benefits as well. Also, only 2% commission per sale.

    Management living in the 80's.... Things have change and the company is not forward thinking. Hardly new product sadly and dying company. Get out why you can.
