    I have been working at Parlux Fragrances part-time

    Pros

    Good hourly wage, that is pretty much it.

    Cons

    Unfortunately very unprofessional lacks communication, high goal expectations, inconsistent hours, biased management, no team work, verbal abuse, little to no breaks since you have to meet sales, schedule is never on time, almost every shift is in a different location, hard to find HR to complain to,

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know what they are doing and are not biased. Train new employees and check on their stock. COMMUNICATION!!! Know the legalities!!!

    I have been working at Parlux Fragrances full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - A true 9 - 5 job. You are asked to clock (scan) in and out daily even though you are salaried
    - Small casual office (NY/FL) - Though most come to work dressed business casual, casual tends to work as well. The chairman/owner often comes to work in jeans and sneakers. The meetings aren't as formal or structured as they are with other CPG/ Beauty companies

    Cons

    - Benefits are not so great - Be very clear on what you are getting before you accept any offer. The biggest issue for most is that you're offered very little vacation, which isn't competitive with the industry/ professional level. Do not believe anyone when they say the New York/FL office is different. It isn't. There is no 401K matching and no bonuses below VP level
    - Most people are on a need-to-know basis which doesn't create a positive and open work environment
    - A lot of egos in a small space which contributes to unnecessary drama. One would think that in a small office most people would get along and be friendly toward one another and that isn't the case
    - Senior management turns a blind eye to bad behavior/ unprofessional conduct
    - There is no continuing education, management/ development trainings as you will find with other large corporations
    - No review process (annual or otherwise)

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Parlux Fragrances as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The income is GREAT....if your working...

    Cons

    Since the recent merger and change of management and one AE covering 3 states ALONE!!...Major earners such as myself seem to get lost in the cracks unless you continue to pursue them!!

    Advice to Management

    We are not all just PT workers, some of us could be more of an asset if utilized more than just holidays. Add more AE's to the region!!

    I have been working at Parlux Fragrances part-time

    Pros

    The Pay is good, if you sell allot fragrence raises come fast. Get discounts on fragrence, you get to work on your own schedual.

    Cons

    It can be very busy during the holidays, you work allot and dont get to much free time. Manager can get on you sometimes if your not selling allot. You might deal with rude customers.

    Advice to Management

    Give out bonuses during holidays.

    Pros

    Loved my boss. She was was very supportive with what we needed to sell. Love fragrance. Loved having flexible-ish hours and not being micromanaged.
    Amazing pay

    Cons

    Application process is a little confusing and so is payment and punching in hours and sales.
    NOT ENOUGH HOURS
    No benefits
    Not much growth career-wise

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say. You're doing the best with what you can do. This economy sucks. I'm lucky I still have a good job.
