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

    Pros

    There was a decent discount and the uniform made it easy to dress in the morning.

    Cons

    The list could go on and on. Upper management was a nightmare to work with HR was worse. There was a major disconnect between G3 , the brand in the US and the brand HQ in FR. I would not recommend this company to anyone

    Advice to Management

    Get trained and treat staff as if you want to be treated

    Pros

    My co-workers were very enjoyable to be around. The customers were all unique and it was a lot of fun helping each customer out. It was exciting to see what the customer picked. The holiday time was a blast with incentives!

    Cons

    * Slow Store
    * The Pay
    * UPPER MANAGEMENT BIG TIME - WAS NOT NICE TO THE STORE WORKERS AT ALL.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to your co workers and pay more.

    I have been working at Vilebrequin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Vilebrequin is a company that allows you to run your business like it's your own. The product is great and clients who know the brand stand behind it 100%. The teams are very small but you definitely feel like a family. The corporate team has been very supportive on a business level as well as a personal level.

    Cons

    There is a lot of downtime so be sure to find ways to stay productive.

    Advice to Management

    I like the new initiatives that you are putting in to place. Every small win counts as we continue to grown on a store and business level.

    Pros

    Ok pay for a manager. I really don't have anything else I could add. Difficult company. Stressful! I believe the product is way too much!!!

    Cons

    Let me count the ways... you can't get a day off or vacation requested. Upper management is neurotic. All they want is more and more work. Products are always faded- wrong fit-and high maintenance customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and get rid of the neurotic people...

    I worked at Vilebrequin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will have a lot of stories to tell friends of absolutely outrageous requests and poor business practices. Most of the customers were pretty happy.

    Cons

    The in-store music is awful, it's very irritating and, for a brand that considers itself luxury, it's pretty tacky. The store itself is designed in a really corny, cheap way that isn't conducive to actual merchandising, not that the retail director (who has absolute control over the placement of every piece in the store) would approve anything other than her cheap, Hollister-inspired concept. Literally every word that you use in your email communications has already been chosen for you, including formatting. You're not allowed to wear clothing purchased in-store, even if it falls into the bland uniform. The reason for this is that upper management doesn't want you to wear I'll-fitting clothes, or clothes in poor repair. Of course, this is a reflection of their ability to find quality talent, but they'll make you feel like it's because you are a slob.

    Advice to Management

    Close the retail division. You're an embarrassment.

    Pros

    Easy Workload. Generally slower than normal retail.Discounts on bathing suits and other apparel

    Cons

    It's retail, so everything you don't like about retail is there. Dealing with high end clients can be more frustrating than normal.

    Advice to Management

    Just continue to understand your staff's needs. Listen to associates if there are any issues, or even ask if they have any issues. Turnover rate is high in retail, so listening to staff will greatly reduce that.
