Co-Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 5, 2016
Every day was different but in an exciting way, though typically I would open the store and count all the registers, walk the store and make sure that all the shops were in tip top shape. I would make sure all the fashion consultants were in there designated zones and that they met our fashion credibility criteria. As a team we would assist all of our shoppers and provide a energetic feel for our store. I learned so much about loss prevention and merchandising, as well as operations. The management were always so inspiring and helpful, they really inspired team building within our store. The hardest part of the job was giving a disciplinary though necessary. The most enjoyable part for me was leading the floor sets, I felt like it gave me the opportunity to explore my creative side while staying within the Agaci guidelines.
Fashion Consultant (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – October 2, 2015
It was all about the sales here, if you were unclear on something, management was very rude about helping you with it. You were basically on your own all the time here. VERY VERY fast pasted. Almost like a compensation type of environment. Very competitive and no sense of team at all. Only plus working here was the employee discounts.
nice employee discounts
Short breaks, management is not supportive or helpful
A typical day would be focusing on your customer and making sales plan on top of 50 other tasks that are ask of you and your staff that would need to be completed in an unrealistic amount of time. I learned the AGACI way which is the culture/way of life at AGACI. It was always talked about but most staff members didn't follow through on on a daily basis. Management, across the board, was nice and we all had the same complaints. The complaints were always about upper management and not being heard by corporate so the cycle never ended. The co-workers were immature at times because AGACI hires at the ripe age of 16 and the pay to get really good people was not acceptable to most. There was no hard part about this job. This company had no structure. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing the staff I hired get promoted.
One hour lunches
No upper management assistance, unrealistic expectations of tasking through payroll, no LP employees in place on a corporate level, not enough payroll given weekly for tasks, no promotions to entice customers to shop new collections, no realist bonus programs, no extra payroll given for new hires to train them
A typical day at work is to get assigned to a part of the store, assist costumers, clean and put back clothes on the racks. I learned customer service and sales with this job. Management at the time was not well and not professional. My co-workers were alright to work with. The hardest part was dealing with black Friday for the first time. The most enjoyable part was assisting the customers and being a fashion consultant to them.
Discount on the items
Not enough hours, poor management, and not a good system
Cashier Lead (Current Employee) – San Ysidro, CA – September 7, 2015
It is a cool environment with a good management staff but I don't love that there is not too much hours. All employees are part-time with no benefits. The best part is the co-workers and the worst part are the short shifts.
A typical day at work was very stressful you needed to do 5 things at once and not mess up. i learned how to be more patient with customers, and to be calm in difficult situations. for the most part the management was great, very easy to get along with and talk to about any work problems. The co workers were good they helped keep the environment fun and they were very helpful when you needed help. The hardest part of the job would be looking for a item a customer wanted that there were only 1 o 2 left. The most enjoyable would be the feeling of satisfaction when you satisfied the customer and helped them with everything they needed.
Lead Co Manager (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 10, 2016
depending how busy it is there is days where you need extra coverage due to the business needs, there is always ongoing everyday learning about how to manage a store. Management is real helpful when needed but some can be unprofessional at times. The hardest part of the job is making sure you are having all your employees stay (retention). Enjoyable you get a great discount & there is always ways to get promoted and moved up within the company!!
A typical day as an associate in this job was clocking in and going with your supervisor to see what were the requirements for the day and what you would be doing. We had too many workers therefore we had very poor hours. You could expect to have very good hours during busy times, typically during the holidays (christmas/new years) and sometimes during the summer. Manager and supervisors were great and very helpful. I loved helping out customers and co-workers made the day pass by smoothly and quick. The pay was not so great.
Fashion Consultant (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – March 11, 2016
Positive, fast-paced environment. Learned about customer service, sales, and stocking and restocking products. Typical day includes greeting customers, selling clothes and informing customers about weekly/monthly promotions.
Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 16, 2016
I started as a sales associate and I was promoted to a management position within 4 months of working for the company. I'm a hardworking person and I enjoyed the things I learned from my supervisors. My coworkers were very understanding and helpful. It was a challenging job sometimes but I always gave my all to my job and I always succeeded.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Concord, CA – May 25, 2016
a typical day at work the supervisor of the day will gather all workers to let us know how the day is going and our goal or the day. i learn a lot and moved my way up slowly always allowed others to learn mostly everything in the store . management was awesome very understanding and listen to others concerns and opinions.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – June 19, 2016
At A'Gaci it is very fast paste and everyone is determined in making there goals of the day, everyone is always caring entergetic and self motivated. The hardest part about this job is letting customers down if we don't have what they are looking for.
One of the worst managent wise/ fun working enviroment
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Massapequa, NY – November 5, 2015
In the begining it was a good place to work. Amazing discount on clothing. We all became a family pretty quickly. 2 out of 3 managers were amazing people. We all got along failry well, even had group outings outside of work. Everyone i started with slowly started leaving the job. Everyone had an issue with management.
Floor Supervisor (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – September 14, 2014
A typical day at work would be getting the store prepared for operations. I can honestly say that this was not a difficult task because everything was cleaned and zoneed the previous work day. There were a couple of managers including myself. The managers were very easy to get along with. We worked torgether as a team. The district manager was very critical of sertain sections of the store and somewhat diminshed the morale of some employees. The most enjoyable part of the job was neeting and assisting the customers
inviting work environement, potential for growth, and great co-workers
