Co-Manager (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – February 26, 2014
Pros: employee discount
A'Gaci management is always on top of whats important and care about their returning customers. Our customers are always number one priority and making sure they get exactly what they came for. The most enjoyable part of this job was getting to work with a wonderful outgoing group of people.
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – February 19, 2014
Pros: great employee discount
Cons: seems to always be short staffed
A typical day at Agaci, very busy with customer's a lot of tasking with shipment processing , visuals, keeping up with store cleaning, managing employees delegating tasks to them lunches , making sure we are hitting are number's for the day as well as for the month. Cash handling in the morning/night and threw out the day. I've learned a lot working – more... there I first started off as a fashion consultant and know I'm a Floor Supervisor. I've been there for 3 years and I've lost count of how many managers we've had. The manager that I have now has taught me a lot . She taught me not to be scared of making mistakes. She noticed that I would always second guess myself, she saw potential in me that I couldn't see. My co-workers are the best they are like my second family. I think that in a company like Agaci or any company we should get along as if its a family but still of course be professionals about it. The hardest part of the job would be when having to do mark downs for the store , because then you see how much money the store is loosing . The most enjoyable part would be when helping a customer and seeing a smile on their face cause we just helped them with great customer service and them going home with an outfit that makes them feel like a million bucks. I would have to add the team that I have makes the job much more easy and enjoyable . – less
Shoe Consultant (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – January 20, 2014
Typical day at work, very easy going and some days very hectic, I enjoyed the fast paced environment because it makes your job and your day go by faster. What I learned working for A'gaci was making sure your customers are your #1 priority and that's at any job you apply, but at A'gaci I learned that when your selling to your customers, you have to – more... conversate with them as if you were throwing a party, because you want them to buy your mercandise,especially in shoes. That's your only department were you have to reach your sales goal. In management, they were great, they pushed for sales to meet goals, talked to employees when they think we needed a little push to make us provide better customer service to our customers. The co-workers were awesome, we worked together as a team to make sure to work hard to reach our goal, when one employee needed to get something else done, than the others made sure that the other things were done as well. The hardest part of the job was some days not meeting our sales because we either didn't have a merchandise a customer was looking for in stock or either having customers only taking one item but trying so hard to sell. The most enjoyable part was making sure the customer left the store happy and working with my team mates. – less
Retail Supervisor (Former Employee), Gurnee, IL – January 4, 2014
Working with A'gaci set the standards high for any other job I consider working for. As a supervisor I ran the store, opening and closing procedures, and trained many other employees to take a position just as well as me. All of the co-workers worked close and encouraged each other as a family. I loved going into work everyday, because we all were serious – more... about making sure goals were made, and the customers were satisfied, I was in management, and we all respected each other, and put forth great ideas so the store was number one in our district – less
Fashion Consultant (Former Employee), MN – December 11, 2013
Pros: pay based on experience
Cons: poor management, not enough staff, overworking employees
This is probably one of the companies that you NEED to stay away from. The only good thing about this company is that pay is based on experience and starts off pretty well. Other than that, AGACI will overwork you, schedule you for almost all your days of availability, occasionally STILL schedule you for days that you are not available, not have sufficient – more... coverage on the floor, not have any/sufficient training, and I can't stress this enough, POOR management and ridiculous policies. – less
Fashion Consultant (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – September 20, 2013
Co-workers are supportive of each other and their needs. Some management are easy too discussion problems and concerns, while others are dazed and confused to say the least. At any retail setting you become educated on how to deal with various modes of people, which is always a great learning lesson.
Fashion consultant (Former Employee), Miami, FL – September 11, 2013
A'gaci is a great place to work, the management is fair and understandable. A typical day at work would be, 100% customer service, and organizing clothing. I enjoyed working there, i was giving the opportunity to work in stock doing overnights in which i enjoyed . Sometimes A'gaci does not get as much traffic ( customers) as we would like, so we have – more... to always make sure we help every single person that walks in the door. – less
A fun place to work. It's always a party at A'gaci
Security Officer (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – September 4, 2013
Pros: i work with really nice people
Cons: no over time and not much room for growth within the company.
Eight hours of standing and greeting customers. I've learned how to identify potential shoplifter. Management is unorganized and sometimes unprofessional. The co-workers are hard working and under paid. The hardest part of my job is getting the shoplifters to leave the store without them putting up a fight. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing – more... the shrink numbers go down. – less
providing excellent customer service, handling transactions on the cash register,boosting sales, constructing displays, utilizing creativity and interpersonal skills to assist customers, and cooperating as an individual to aid team effort towards accomplishing objectives.
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee), Murfreesboro, TN – March 3, 2013
I love my job here. I am constantly adapting to the needs of various customers. The perpetual flow of customers and store activity keeps me on my toes and is throughly enjoyable. I get to work directly, face to face with customers and assist them every step of their way for their complete shopping experience. Tasking around the store is very well balanced – more... with each days specific needs. Every employee there is very much always on the same page and we all work great together. – less
Fashion Consultant (Current Employee), Austin, Texas – January 28, 2013
Pros: amazing discount
Cons: sucky pay and hours.
A'GACI is a rather good company to work for if you are in school and are seeking part-time. The pay isn't good and for what you do, it isn't worth it. Management is all over the place and is VERY dis-organized. Co-workers are great! You don't have drama, especially working with nothing but girls. You are held responsible for making major sells within – more... a day. Your sales will base off your hours you work. I would only recommend this job to those that are very outgoing and are rather persuasive, nonetheless. – less
Co-Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TX – January 16, 2013
I have been in retail for many years, and have never dealt with so many unprofessional superiors. They offer little to no training, and then when you try to figure something out on your own, they reprimand you for not doing it correctly, although you were never trained. The store manager I was under had no idea what or how to run a large staff, which – more... can be very frustrating for someone like me. – less
