    I have been working at Perfumania Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Work with fun, energetic people. Develope a good relationship with coworkers. Always smellin good on the job.

    Cons

    Company has no marketing skills, no logic towards the promotions, always urging employees to sell everything including garbage that kills your ADS and then wonders why your numbers are weak. DM does not lead by example, the RM just sends emails. You'll be frustrating with how the company functions...because its authority figures have no education towards selling.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees who actually work in the stores and interact with customers all day and nearly everyday. We know how it goes...not you!

    .....You get 15% off clearance items

    Make your employees happy and in return, they will make your Customers happy.
