DKNY is not a professional place to work. Management is unprofessional and disorganized. They don't give you the proper training when you are hired. Zero product information. Get ready to find out by yourself what's the name of whichever style of jeans because they won't explain. The store is always messy and they won't really fix it unless a district manager is coming to visit the store. They won't let you fix it either because your role is to be there to sell and just sell. At the end of the day before closing, that's when they send someone to fold.
As any other store, they force you to buy their clothes. You gotta wear the brand. You get 75% off (just for 8 pieces) FROM THE REGULAR PRICE, and 30% off for whatever else you'd like to purchase. Not convenient at all. In other stores you get discounts over discounted prices.
Scheduling: Opens schedules from 9.30 am toll whatever time. Closing is at 9 pm but you stay until 10 or whatever time the manager on duty takes to finish.
Be aware that YOU need to remind them that you need a break. While 15 minutes is what any other company gives you for shifts of 4 hours or less, DKNY won't. They are gonna make you work WITHOUT any short break unless you work more than 6 hours. Then you get 30 m.
The Store Manager is hard working and sales focused. Really flexible at scheduling. Still he seems to be a little impatient and unable to see that the other two managers are Just not doing their job as it should be done. They have zero idea of how to train people or being a leader. The visual manager is terrible. Just goplus... to the store and see by yourself. Things are not placed where they should be and she doesn't want to be told or helped by anyone. If you move something, be ready to get in trouble. No space for professional growth. Really slow pace environment.moins

I worked part time at DKNY and it was extremely stressful as a part time job, considering i was in school while working but the management doesn’t take that into consideration and expects you to work 20+ hours a week and make all your targets. I was pressured to make my goal on my second shift, while i was still training and learning more about the job and products, which was very unfair.
Long hours, stressful job, unreasonable pressure to make sales
