    I worked at Desigual full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None! Except that most of the sales associates and assistant managers are great people

    Cons

    Filthy. MICRO-MANAGEMENT BEYOND!!! Nothing is correct, they change things every day. Operationally nothing works in stores. POS System fails daily. They expect you to work later than your shift to prove you can do your job. There’s bug infestation. Theres no sanitation you have to manually do it. The bug infestation and sanitation issue is where the break room is. None of the nyc locations have had appropriate store managers for months. There’s no PR done right, nothing for marketing. There are no security guards so items are robbed weekly. The CEO listed here is not the current although the current gets a horrible rating as well since all operation issues come from upper management. Members that are of African American descent feel that they are discriminated...... Desiree is a nightmare so beware. I worked for years until she came on board changing everything with nonsense and micromanaging EVERYTHING YOU DO INCLUDING BREATHING

    Upper management is not involved with the leased Desigual shops which is why the shops closed .

    I have been working at Desigual

    Pros

    I was thrilled at the opportunity to work at a new European designer. They only have a handful of stores in the USA, but I see them becoming the next big trend. They have really funky clothing! Its also very exciting that Christian Lacroix is their new Creative Designer. I imagine that the fall collection will be absolutely AMAZING.

    Cons

    Communication is horrible between upper management and retail shopkeepers. Although we are expected to adapt to constant changes in the company/market etc., they REFUSE to adapt to the necessary differences in our country. This is not BARCELONA. This is NOT Europe. There are different practices--there are different LAWS. Somethings are just unacceptable and it can often times we very demotivating.
