    I have been working at Desigual part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Fun, positive, energetic, free, relaxed, entertaining environment *Meeting international clientele from many differnt cultures and countries *Free uniform pieces every few months from new collections *Opportunity to grow *Really nice, kind and understanding country manager *Promotions and gifts for clientele and occasionally employees *Beautiful, fun and eclectic clothes, purses and patterns with a cultural fusion print *Nice employees and management team *Salary plus commission *You actually create great bonds with customers who will come in ONLY when you're scheduled because they enjoy and love the experience they had with you

    Cons

    Hmm not really any. Occasionally I've had associates/management "steal" a client I was working with. We have a monetary goal to achieve daily so that can cause some friction. However once addressed it was resolved.

    I worked at Desigual

    Pros

    Free uniform that consist of 3-4 pieces that you receive every 3-4 months and have to wear it everyday

    Cons

    Speaking as a sales associate for Desigual soHo, this is the most unprofessional and unsanitary store I have ever worked at, all types of bugs and insects in stock room including bed bugs,roaches,waterbugs and spiders. The higher up’s used to bring all sorts of food to the stock room(same room where all the clothes is kept) and have little meetings within themselves and leave all the lefts overs and crumbs on the table for weeks, they once left left-over donuts on the table with all the mess that was made and nobody bothered to throw it out but me after a month. District manager is pretty much an air head who doesn’t know how to do her job to well, terribly lazy and very unprofessional, forces employees to follow customers around the store and force them to buy stuff wether they want to or not literally. The key holders except for mayja have disgusting attitudes and will make you do all the work plus theirs, than go behind the register and be on their phone ... called out sick one time due to getting sick from the district manager having the door open in 45 degree weather to get people to come in and buy and not thinkin much about the employees complaining that is too cold and was never scheduled to work again, asked her if I still worked their and was told I was removed from the roster even though the last time I went to pick up my uniform she told me I would get it my next shift(that was never scheduled)

    Pros

    Free uniform, that’s about it.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. District manager is lazy. Doesn’t really inspire employees or offer incentives. They want people to strive for high target of sales but don’t motivate employees to do so.

    Fun atmosphere Fun product to sell Working with a great team Meeting international customers Room for growth Nice upper management/corporate (in NY) Free uniforms

    Cons

    Pay could be better “Commission” is basically non existent No set schedule and working late nights and weekends(but that’s the sacrifice you make when working retail) Company is based out of Barcelona, which can make communication difficult if needed.

    Pros

    You get free uniform, it can be a good experience if the store has right leader. Flexible schedule. You get commission every two weeks

    Cons

    The manager was clueless about the job or what is expected from her. There's no room for growth, they always get people for outside, or highly disqualified.

    free uniforms with each season, great discount, fun work environment, commission, average salary, ALOT of room for growth

    Cons

    the company is from Spain and is fairly new to the U.S so they don't recognize certain holidays which mean if you work a holiday they don't pay time and a half like many other retail jobs. since its new they are still perfecting management. it is not perfect.
