Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 8, 2015
I was with DKNY for almost six years. It allowed me to explore my creative side while learning the business end of the company. At the time it was a smaller company and everyone was very supportive and always fun to work with. Donna Karan herself would leave personal voice mails to employees that accomplished something great. The team I worked for was fun and very successful at the same time. I will always have wonderful memories of my time with DKNY.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 4, 2015
Due to the structure of the building each day was different, it presented something new and different each day. One day could mean coming in to a flooded basement or current of live electricity on the shop floor. I learned to trust my instincts and think quickly. I worked with a wonderful group of people.
I liked to juggled with multiple task and always prevail, while not losing focus on priorities.
Shipping and Receiving Supervisor (Former Employee) – Carlstadt, NJ – April 16, 2013
Responsible for shipping and receiving, the hardest part was that the company was separated 2 director's same co. I can excel at most highest levels in a fast paste distribution center, very good under pressure and excellent time management. My co-workers will remembered me as being the most complete supervisor/manager they ever seen in a warehouse,i done it all in the operations with extremely high energy levels at all times.The employees had too much leverage because the contract the company had with the union, that was the hardest part of working there.
Design Intern Fall 2012 (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 21, 2012
The first thing I noticed about the company is that they are so organized. Everything falls in place, and everyone who is working there are really nice people and they seem to really enjoy being there. I learned a lot from DKNYC team, and had a great time interning there. It's a very good experience for either working or interning.
A typical day at work consists of customer service, customer captures, customer conversion, registers, and making sure the customer leaves with a smile and visits us again. I've learned how to approach people, convince people, and satisfy all my customers as needed. I also learned how to use the registers and about Donna Karan herself as well as her company. Management is good and fun to work with. My co-workers are also fun and easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job is when it is dead and there are no customers because without any money coming in there are no hours for the us. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I can speak to people from different cultures and country's. They are really fun to talk to and you learn a lot about their countries.
10 minute break, the co-workers, great pay.
no benefits, short shifts, and no hours when dead.
