Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 15, 2018
It was a cool job to work for the most part. I was in operations so I served as the backbone of the store. I enjoyed it because my nature is very nuturing. but it got to a point where the was enough team spirit going around. People were driven by their own person goals and not the goal of the store as a collective.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2018
A typical day there, especially on weekends, is a high-paced environment focused on the client and KPIs. Goals are given in the beginning of the day and employees had to meet those goals everyday. If the goals weren't met, then one would have to reflect on what happened and what could be done in the future to ensure better numbers.
Some of the clients can be rude so you must have a thick skin and have self control with how you respond.
There could be a better line of communication between higher management and employees as well as more compassion when serious life matters arise. Many times employees didn't feel like they were being listened to.
Less micromanagement could improve the workplace and its effect on employees. It makes working in the environment difficult. However, there are a few managers in place that make the workplace more fun, they really listen to the employees and try to make things better.
SVP of Giorgio Armani Footwear & Accessories (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 11, 2018
Wonderful experience working with Mr. Armani and the teams in both NY and Milan. Brand focused company that promotes from within. I was able to grow and manage new categories of business during my six years there.
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 8, 2018
A typical work day is 9 hour shift consisting of and hour break and 2 15mins breaks. The earliest best 5am and the latest being 3pm shift. I learned how to send and received shipment and packages, organize and multi-task. Management has its ups and downs. They have great managers and then there are the managers who tend to lash out on others because of other reasons. The atmosphere was always great when certain people wasn't around. The hardest part of the job was to always pick up where others lacked and dealing with attitudes. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alone with no there to distract me any time I had the chance.
The job was amazing. Great pay, opportunities to better yourself. my experience was going well; however, there were a few downfalls. Calling the same customers about the same promotions wasn't that great as the promotions never changed. It is important to build your client list.
NA (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 14, 2018
Poor management I would not recommend this company location maybe another location with different management and a different GM would suffice. Save yourself the time and effort and don't work at this location.
Business Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 3, 2018
Giorgio Armani has been around for decades for a reason. The product speaks for itself. The management gets it and they make good decisions with a vision ahead. The office is clean. The senior management is passionate, not always agreeable, but they have the best intentions of the company.
Sales/Merchandising Team (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – April 19, 2018
I enjoyed this company very much! I learned the best clientele techniques here. Management was amazing leaders and mentors. The hardest part of the job was snowed in days. Most enjoyable part was the team potlucks.
Its exactly as you would imagine working in a luxury brand environment would be. Although I will say that some of the management staff was a bit more prude and rigid then necessary, majority of them were very friendly and supportive and open. The open door policy is exceptional and the growth potential is definitely there.
Merchandise Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 26, 2018
The fashion industry especially European brands are more conservative and are reluctant to be more advance in technology, which makes work efficiency being sacrificed. People are very nice , friendly and efficient while the systems are old, slow, or even obsolete. Ecommerce is not being developed properly. work life balance and the teams are great here, but people are constantly frustrated about systems and restrictions.
great people, good work life balance
not a lot of freedom over selections/ no system efficiency.
I had great experiences working for this company. Learned new techniques and product knowledge. Great training experiences such as attending Gorgio Armani Beauty Summit in Los Angeles, California for 4 days. The scheduling through Dillard's was very inconsistent. Unable to provide full time hours as promised most of my time with Dillards.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 30, 2018
I may be biased because I'm a fashion student, but I loved being able to interact with managers and clientele that could appreciate the quality products that Mr. Armani puts out. As a temp worker, I was only paid hourly, but as full time, you'd be able to make commission, which can be a great opportunity.
Inventory Supervisor (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 30, 2018
I enjoyed my time with Armani Jeans. It was a fairly new brand that they had recently introduced at that time. We were one of 2 stores under the Giorgio Armani brand. I learned a great deal about how to appeal to a customer and what indicators to look for in hopes to make an exceptional experience for our clients.
