    I have been working at Nine West full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team of people. Most workers have been employed longer than 10 years, so hassle free, drama free and everyone knows each other. Thrived on the chance to move up or move around. Quite a few managers/supervisors/leads started as machine operators or warehouse associates and continued were able to gradually move into higher paying, higher responsibility roles. Great benefits, health, dental and eye, vacation and over 40 hours of paid sick/anytime time.

    Cons

    The only con is the 2017/2018 downsizing and uncertainty of the future of the company. Many layoffs in 2017 and retail stores that were past customers have shrunk the company. Typically raises run off of a percentages, so the less you make the less your raise will be.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are very knowledgeable and willing to share knowledge with their employees to keep things running smooth. Any advice to for the company is really out the managements hands.
