Alex & Ani is a growing jewelry company. They boast positive energy, eco-consciousness and handmade product. While all of this is true about the environment, Alex & Ani also has many negative aspects.
Working will often require educating the clients on the brand and often times they are guarded against the typical retail associate and being sold on product. Day to day work is monotonous and not challenging. Product knowledge is extensive and necessary. Truly, your image as an employee will either assist or hinder your success with sales and clients.
Management is often very critical, negative, not supportive and displays hypocrisy at every turn. Alex & Ani is an environment for growth for those that are well connected, favorited by management and able to display the brand while secretly stepping on others to get to the top.
It is difficult to make personal goals and store goals as it is often dependent on the traffic and environment. Even so, benefits are on the generous side for those that are eligible.
