Luxury Specialist (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 2, 2016
Management is messy They hire anybody. They're very unorganized. They make up rules that are not in handbook, and try to punish you for it. This job is for someone fresh out of high school or that may be in desperate need of a job.
Luxury Brand Specialist (Former Employee) – College Park, GA – November 28, 2016
A typical day was stocking and cleaning. The most enjoyable part of the job were some of the coworker. The hardest part was dealing with management and figuring out how to do stuff without any help or trainning. What I've learned were some skills about watches and sunglasses.
I.T Support (Current Employee) – Hollywood, FL – October 24, 2016
A typical day consist of opening and balancing of the stores in the morning in order for operations to run smoothly throughout the day. I have learned that a day without learning is a day wasted. By far the best management team I have had the pleasure to work with. Absolutely no complaints. This goes as well for my fellow co workers, who have been more of a real team. The hardest part of the job is running across a job that may seem at time, impossible. However, I have also learned that no job has been impossible without the support of my team. The most enjoyable part of the job is the knowledge that I acquire and have acquired on a daily basis.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 3, 2016
This company or rather this carnival, has zero redeeming values. Lousy pay (no raises, bonuses, promotions), lousy benefits and a turnover rate that exceeds that of McDonald's. You live under the constant.threat of being fired. Senior management both locally and at the corporate office spend a good part of each day watching cameras to see what minor infractiom they can use to justify termination. Furthermore, they are as insencere as the day is long. Horrible is too soft an adjective. Gross from top to bottom
all you have to do is show up for interview and you're hired.
Sales Support Lead (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – August 20, 2016
Working at DFA I have learned many things, I strongly believe it enhanced my people skills enormously, Due to the fact that DFA and my current job are both placed in JFK airport I have learned to work and service different cultures. I have also learned to work in a very fast pace environment. Management there are very understanding and work with your personal request and find was to meet with your request. The hardest part of the job was trying to sell or explain products to customers who dont speak the same language as me.
STORE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – July 27, 2016
DFA stores are a very busy place all day long serving travelers around the world offering a variety of products at lower prices. Besides the regular daily tasks every day is different according to events set for promotions of international well known brand names of perfume, liquors, tobacco, and luxury items such as watches, handbags, and chocolates. Working for them gives you an opportunity to learn about the products they sell, through events for their employees in order to know all the facts about the products, backing up your acknowledgements that will be an asset for the performance of your duties when assisting customers in their purchases. The environment regarding co-workers play as a team fighting in pro to keep their assigned store as the best. Managment no comment at all. Considering the hard part of the job will depends in how, or what you may consider HARD. And the most enjoyable part was to share the daily operations with co-workers.
Support Associate (Current Employee) – College Park, GA – July 9, 2016
At first the job was okay. Little to no problems but as time went on people (management) starts to become disrespectful. They have little to no regard or respect for their employees. Hey don't know how to talk to people. People have literally hurt themselves and refused to go home for fear of being terminated for the pettiest reasons. They also don't have raises unless you apply for a different job in the company. The only good thing is that you meet new people everyday because you work in the airport. All in all its a terrible and hostile environment to work in.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – May 19, 2016
This job location was at the MIA Airport which make very difficult getting back and from work, my co-worker where very good people to get alone with. This job does not give raises very little to look forward to.
I thrive on learning new techniques and strategizing daily and this company allows me the opportunity to manage large-scale budgets, work cross-functionally across all departments, and be an integral part of the profitability and product offerings in an industry that which I have tremendous passion and motivation to excel and outperform the vast competition.

Store Manager (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – October 11, 2015
the company offers great balance but there is no room to grow at least you are willing to relocate. we have good man power but we have a huge turn over because we do not pay enough for the jobs demands.
