Unprofesional and disorganized place to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON19 June 2018
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 go
  more... 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.

A Great company that strives to please their employees as well as customers.
Full Time/ Key Holder (Former Employee) –  Halton Hills, ON7 April 2018
DKNY,
Was an amazing start for me to become a key holder, I had such great support as well as the team was very proactive towards building a wonder environment for customers and employees to feel welcomed.
Being a key holder holds a lot of responsibility, but having the discipline to be able to have things done on time, having a great memory as well as being a great role model for employees was something that was natural for me, only because of the training that I had been given.

Its aright
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON26 February 2018
The management is very unproffesional in canada. Filled with gossip and obvious fake behaviour. Sales are mandatory to make but dont even make commision. Uncomfortable environment.

Amazing place to not only work but build a career
Head Sales Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 March 2016
Working at DKNY was an amazing experience. Being able to build personal relationship with influential leaders such the GM and RM, was a priceless opportunity. in addition, DKNY as a company demonstrated an incredible amount care to not only ensuring the happiness of their employees, but also accommodating and supporting them when needed. DKNY is a company that leads by example when it comes to what a retail company should be doing.
Pros
friendly, rewarding, and fun environment
Cons
not all companies are like this

The only DKNY in Montreal
Vendeuse (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC8 February 2016
DKNY is great and very known brand. We had an A-list as costumers but very low traffic. Since is an expensive store we would had to work harder to create a regular list of costumers, and give a very personalize service. The people I work with were great,however the management was a bit out of day and did not had great communication with the head office.
I got to know great people and learn the importance of creating a sort of friendship with costumers.
Pros
great brand
Cons
bad communication between management

if you like fashion and boredom
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  edmonton, ab4 September 2014
traffic in this store was so slow that the days seemed to drag on. the owners of the franchise would do most of the tasks like shipping and receiving, tagging etc. leaving nothing for the employees to do but what ended up being standing around waiting for a customer to come in. the owners did not trust the employees and checked in on us almost daily. I felt very uncomfortable working there.
however they did pay me very well compared to other retailers in the mall.
always off late also. shifts were 10-7 or 12:30-9:30.
Pros
sweet paycheque
Cons
everything else
