    I have been working at Perfumania Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I always smell good, I loved my co workers, and I loved satisfying customers. I was able to work on my Spanish speaking skills, and work learn more about the paper work side of jobs.

    Cons

    Because perfume is more of a luxury than a need, sometime it is really slow, and making sure everything constantly looks good can be trying at times.

    I worked at Perfumania Holdings (More than a year)

    Pros

    Commission
    Hourly pay is decent if your a student
    Roughly 15 hours a week for sales associate
    Key holder 15 to 20 a week

    Cons

    Unless its the holidays then hours for the week sucks
    First manager was cool , the new one is greedy and takes all the sales and hours.

    Advice to Management

    Check on how many hour managers are getting compared to the workers

    Pros

    Customers , learning new fragrances, commission , making sales goal and encouraging your staff to be better and see it happen

    Cons

    As long as you work hard and follow rules there are no cons. Well working over 45 hours a week can sometimes be a con if staff calls of and the mall is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Pay managers more .
