    I worked at Kate Spade New York part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - in my personal experience, really nice staff, friendly upper management - great discounts on product - very socially conscious - easy shifts, fun product to work with

    Cons

    - a bit hard to move up in the company unless you’re extremely vocal about wanting to do so - clienteling is very important, almost too focused upon, gives us unrealistic goals for that

    I worked at Kate Spade New York part-time

    Pros

    people working there are very nice and helpful when starting new, good amount of hours sometimes too much, discount on merchandise is nice

    Cons

    Managment picks favourites and if you are not that person it is hard to work with them because they show that you are not their favourite. The policy surrounding the "customer is always right" is unfair to employees in some situations, even if the customers are completly wrong, they will always get what they're asking for and company expects an apology from staff to cusotmers even if they are not to blame.

    Everyone on the team is friendly and it is your basic retail sales associate position so tasks are easy to pick up on.

    Since it is a bigger company they are more strict on meeting sales quotas and following dress code.

    I worked at Kate Spade New York part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    wardrobing (but you had to pay tax) fun store to be in, you dont have to wear a uniform, just kate spade clothing discount

    Cons

    When the company was purchased by Coach in 2017, that's when KS started to close a lot of stores and break into different districts. The district manager that I had to work for was an absolute wreck. She had no idea what she was doing. There was fat shaming between employees and petty drama. Promotions are given out left and right to people who do not deserve them. Someone will seem like they gave you the promotion, but they decide to give it to the new girl that just started instead. Horrible managers who just want to social climb and they also only think of themselves. There is no commission, low wages for part time people. And this company is all about empowerment and feminism? They claim that they care about these issues, yet the stores culture is the opposite.
