    I worked at Salvatore Ferragamo part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and its a luxurious feeling

    Cons

    The company is very stuck in their old ways and for a fashion brand, don't maintain a "fashion forward" feeling with their uniforms or designs. They also did not have a great training program, everyone was stuck in their own jobs and when someone wasn't available for a specific task, no one knew what to do.

    I have been working at Salvatore Ferragamo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great products, extraordinary brand heritage - Excellent store management, associates are actually trusted and treated like human beings! - Outstanding health insurance - Generous paid leave (personal and sick days, vacation) - Good pay when your store makes plan

    Cons

    - Incompetent Regional Management. - Horrible pay, inconsistent with the cost of living for your area. Effective July 2019, there will be an even worst wage and commission structure implemented. I’m looking at my income being cut by more than 15%, and that’s optimistic. It could be more if I don’t maintain my current sales volume (it’s not looking too good). - Hourly wage fluctuates every 6 months depending on your...

    Advice to Management

    Better pay! You’re losing a lot of competent, passionate, loyal employees because they can’t afford to pay their bills. More than two pairs of uniform shoes, so they don’t become so gross and smelly. Do not break down the annual survey by store, perhaps by region, but no further. I’ve noticed certain managers retaliate against stores who rate them less than satisfactory.

    I worked at Salvatore Ferragamo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    When I started, Ferragamo had a great family vibe and experience. The regional manager and Head of US were both friendly and extremely dedicated to the company. People worked hard and it was a great place to work in retail. It wasn't as pressuring as other places like LVMH, but people were motivated to make sales through great culture. Discount was good and you get an uniform to wear. When sales started to decline,...

    Cons

    Eventually, the company started going down a bad path. They started letting people who had worked at the company for years go. This is not just necessary a bad thing, but people who were dedicated to the company and motivated to let the company succeed were let go, because sales were down. I mean how could sales not go down? The product line was going down a terrible path, the designers released nothing special. Ferragamo...

    Pros

    Great product and training tools

    Cons

    Unprofessional corporate, Undervalued, favoritism, underpaid,

    Advice to Management

    The lack of professionalism from upper management and not being transparent with employees is very discouraging. I’ve never worked for a company that does not properly handle complaints with such a lack of interest and integrity as this. Offering guidance through difficult situations is what Management is for and they do not do so with ethics in mind.

    Pros

    Great brand heritage, good customer loyalty.

    Cons

    Impossible to maintain the kpi’s. Difficult work environment and a horrible inconsistent pay structure. System sets you up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Try to change the bi monthly reviews if at all possible. Pay structure will keep you from hiring good, experienced associates.
