Pros: the benefits
Cons: difficult obtaining position promotions
1) A typical day at Jones:
-Communicated with garment mills on a daily basis to ensure fabric productivity is completed in a timely manner.
-Issued comments to mills for quality adjustments
-Pitched out colors with in prints for production
-Assisted the fabric R&D manager on a daily basis
-My manager was extremely eager for our department – more... to grow and learn as much as possible. She would sign our department up for work related classes outside of Jones to strengthen our ability to grow professionally in our field.
-Maintained a close professional relationship with co-workers despite it's high volume & fast paced environment.
4) The hardest part of working for Jones:
-position advancement is one downside to working at Jones. Working for a major company has it's perks, but unfortunately promotions are not easily handed to it's employees. I was hired as an assistant a couple of years ago & unfortunately I would not be promoted for quite some time. If you are patient & want a corporate atmosphere, Jones is right for you.
5) Most enjoyable part of the job:
-The most enjoyable part of working for Jones were the benefits that were offered. Even though the compensation wasn't to my liking, the benefits made up for everything in the end. Such benefits included great health & dental benefits, 401k program, pre-tax transit programs, 40% off apparel & shoes from Ninewest, Rachel Roy, Easy Spirit, Anne Klein, & Jones New York, discount tickets to concerts, shows, travel, free educational programs with in Jones, bi-monthly sample sales, & much more. – less
