    I worked at Randa Accessories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training was actually pretty decent (though it's a sink or swim environment). I went on two training trips: in Guatemala and New Orleans. There is some travel with this job and I really enjoyed that. I loved the retail industry and being soo hands on when it came to the design and sales. I leaned sooo much how the business works and I really liked working here.

    Cons

    The office is very beige and not inspiring it's also in Rosemont. Most of my coworkers were very basic and also "know it alls" (though I did make great friendships with some) upper management is immature and gossipy. The company went through BIG layoffs and also fire people often and frequently (mostly based if you don't fit in or upper management doesn't like you)

    Advice to Management

    Recognize those who care about their job and give them opportunities. At the end of the day, we are selling belts and wallets, and to have high egos about it is not nessesary.

    Pros

    One of the best companies I've worked for. Employees like coming to work and there is respect and integrity at all levels. It's an exciting industry to be in and there's high energy and creativity in many of the departments. Senior management is easy to talk with and they genuinely care about their employees. New management team has brought many positive changes.

    Cons

    Randa is growing their IT solutions and should continue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage employees.

    Pros

    Lots of events and parties in the company

    Cons

    Draconian HR policies. Advised to work from 8 to 7 in order to retain job. HR will watch work hours down to the second.....if you come in 5 minutes late it leads to a review meeting. Uncomfortable working environment as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Treat full time employees with respect if you wish to retain them.
