    I worked at Vanity Fair Brands part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There wasn't any pros at all.

    Cons

    Their was favoritism everywhere, unprofessional, managers would disrespect you openly infront of anyone whenever they felt like it. Raises and evaluation was never done and pay was always off or late. They also make up random rules and apply them to only the people they don't like and if your a hard worker they'll hate you and I promise they'll show it and laziness is rewarded there and so is sexual harassment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism, stop being bios, stop being racist, stop being sexiest, stop treating people like you own them, stop yelling at people, stop cheating people out of money, and stop enabling horrible workings and putting down people who work hard. Jobs like this is the reason why people hate retail cause nothing is ever properly handled and when someone brings it to your attention then it's there fault for bringing it up but not yours for creating it no that is not how it works. It's also not ok to tell someone they you are sick of seeing there family members face and if you see it again they will fire them. Specially when the person doesn't work for you, they only pick them up, it's a public place and it's very unprofessional. That's type of management is horrible and one day will lead to the failure of your company. Not to mention even after not getting a yearly raise almost to months after the date and no evaluation.

    Pros

    It's a glamorous lifestyle with a lot of fun perks, and you're working with the best of the best

    Cons

    Junior staff are expected to look like you just stepped out of the pages of the magazine-- which is impossible given their salaries

    Advice to Management

    Throw the junior staff a bone once in a while! Help them create professional opportunities outside of assistant tasks

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefit structure, many brands to transfer between.

    Cons

    Don't set you up for new growth opportunities because they're trying to grow and hire from outside

    Advice to Management

    A lot of confusion from corporate to retail chain, alleviates the chance of running a smooth business.

    Pros

    Paid holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Good discounts on merchandise from other stores owned by the company. Usually good hours.

    Cons

    Management where i worked was not very flexible with my schedule. I had to ask off fairly often because of school related things, and I would always get chewed out.

    Advice to Management

    If employees and customers are complaining about something, it usually means that it's a pretty big problem. The stores A/C was broken, and the GM never did anything about it because she never came downstairs. Also, take care of the employees who aren't doing there job. We had one employee who was constantly late to work for no apparent reason. He would be 30-2hrs late, and the entire year I was there he never got chewed out or fired.

    Pros

    The work isn't supremely difficult, you get rewarded for doing well, if you speak Spanish the consumers are really easy to get on with (in Fort Lauderdale, though), and the quality of stuff was pretty great.

    Cons

    If you don't speak Spanish, the consumers continue talking--in Spanish; the undercover security guards are watching you--the company does *not* trust you; sometimes, co-workers are pretty immature
