Alfani Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

Book author, Franz Rivoira talks about the quality of ALFANI in a review written for QUORA: “From what I can see, Alfani is a cheap shot at establishing a wannabe Italian-sounding clothing brand. It is just an exercise in branding. The quality could be good or not, but I mean - the brand has no kind of cultural or historical heritage to communicate apart from an Italian-sounding name attached to clothing which is not Italian at all. As a note, apart from its obvious assonance with “Armani”, it reminds closely of “Alfano” - Angelino Alfano, Italian politician and Minister, recently in the news because of a scandal about his brother getting hired in the State-owned Post Office service as a Director (with a 200k Euro salary and … Ehm … scant qualifications). So, also a poor choice as a reference, too. I suggest Macy’s marketing team do some more research next time”
Marketing (Former Employee) says"This place is a disaster, i'm surprised they're still standing. Not only are they highly unethical, but they also have an extremely toxic work culture and are stuck in the past. The job description listed is complete lies, make sure you know what you're getting into. NoneEverything"
Furniture & Mattress Sales Representative (Former Employee) says"Bad pay, bad benefits, basically bare minimum, best part is the cultural aspect and they try to be diverse. Advancement is to the people who are kiss up to management. If you stick to yourself you won't go anywhere if your numbers look good, as usual it's a business, you aren't what they care about, money is what they care about."
Merchandiser/Sales (Former Employee) says"I worked for Macys for 8 plus years.They use you.Then fire you .I was a lead and during furlough they called me and told me i was laid off.They discriminated against my age when a new manager came..There is no loyalty.Go work some place else.I loved my manager and always thought that he would do everything he could to keep me there..I was wrong.He took my job and gave it to someone else , Depends on your managerLow pay"
Merchandising flex associate (Former Employee) says"Is ok not the best place to work. Management can suck. You can get over worked for what you are getting paid for and then you won’t get no hours at all. There is a lot of favoritism in management on who gets hours. NothingEverything"
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"This is not a good place to work a lot of pettiness to much fighting over sales they expect you to sell when there not customer in the store and when you don't there ready to fire you Free sampleEverything"

Assistant Manager/Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"This company cannot be trusted they promise you the moon and then you get stabbed in the back and they let you go. Allot of Favoritism . Benefits are bad. Not a stable place to work the pay is low. No raises allot of working crazy hour’s around The holidays and then they make to stay for inventory and then let you go!22 years of working with some good peopleThis company cannot be trusted they are going to go bankrupt real soon"
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed the work but Management is useless, corporate controls EVERYTHING from another time zone. Hated how employees wear treated. I would never go back.no on premises HR or any other resources for workers"
Sales Floor Managersalea Floor Lead (Former Employee) says"I would not ever go back to this company. Long hour and unappreciated. No structure and did not enjoy being part of management. The upper management team was not friendly at all but promotes friendliness to its lower level employees at any cost. Do not do itDo not do it"
Shop Captain (Current Employee) says"Many of the managers at Macy’s are very rude & lazy. It shows in how last act looks down to how many people call off a day. Just horrible! I worked so many hrs with little pay. The hrs standing on my feet & helping customers who were so ungrateful."
Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Company didn’t care what kind of sacrifices I did to get to my position and drove the best results ! I was discriminated they lay me off saying my position is cut ans give it to MTM which there position is cut not mine ! So basically I felt like I was sacrificed ! They haven’t even offer me a position those people who work in Macy’s for over 20 years are only looking for them selves and protecting their jobs they can take anyone ok their way if they felt that their job is threatened !! They cut me and which I have seniority and experience and left a new sales manager has no history of any results . It’s a mess . I don’t know who watch over them if they did the right thing ! Who audit their decision"
Digital Merchandise Assistant (Former Employee) says"Management, meetings, lack of time to do anything other than what your manager/ director wants you to do. They have no idea what really goes on but think they do. They do not tell you about an assessment you need to take in order to move up in your career. They do not prepare you either. You're supposed to read their minds on what they think of your progress is for the assessment. Once it comes around they tell you that day that you are not ready for it. Being a DMA you are at the very bottom and have to fight to be in another role. I have goals in my life i wasn't going to let my manager and director dictate my life. Meanwhile the two of them have no actual experience in the industry only with macy's. No fashion schooling either. Just a random degree. Theres no exit interview either. Just a sad measly card. After almost 2 years you're just a body at Macy's nothing more. My manager was a mouth piece and my director thought she knew everything but knew nothing. They want to hold you back because you're a threat to them. It is not run right and it is not fair. Best decision i made leaving that place. It is not the company itself it is the people who run it.Wfh, Summer FridaysManagement, A million and 5 meetings a day, Keeping you in the same position when you're ready to move"
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"They don't appreciate you in that company. They hardly have hours. You kill yourself working and doing the most you can and they still complain that you are not quick enough. You try to tell them that you need help from other associates, they say they don't have any body to send you yet they say you never ask them for help. They expect you to do the job of like 10 different people and the pay sucks. Definitely not worth working with that company."
merchandising/signing associate (Current Employee) says"Macy Is not flexible with shifts and you have to pick up shifts in other departments which you are really familiar with. Sometimes there are no shift available in your department for over a week.Very very low salaryNone"
Business Manager (Former Employee) says"There are good people that care. Some managers that were so great to work for left the company.The corporate structure is very unfriendly. I had manages walk right by me and never say hello and clearly they knew I was an employee by the badge I wore. I met my goals and even exceeded these. Point system, traffic causes unexpected delays, tardiness is strike against employee, several strikes and employee is fired, many great co-workers were fired, no respect for my training as licensed aesthetician."
Customer Service (Former Employee) says"Everything about working for Macy’s was a disaster. The management was extremely rude and disrespectful. Horrible work environment. The pay is not worth the responsibilities you take on.NoneEverything"
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"They only care about corporate. They forget that the sales associates keep the store up and running. They also forget that their associates have a life outside of Macy's. Like children for example. The pay is good, vacation pay, 401 k ect. But the headache is up to you.Good pay, 401k ectNo consideration for their employees"
Macy's Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"No good company to work for I worked there for over 7 yrs and eliminated my position and laid me off. There is no growth there whatsoever! Horrible oh and if your flex and you get laid off or don’t accumulate PTO you can kiss your all your sick safe ca time you had goodbye you don’t get paid out!!!!! Now I wished I would have called out every shift just to get my paid sick time I had over 60 hrs of sick time!!!!! I would never recommend someone work here! Poor management and so on!!!"
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"Pay is not the. Best. Favoritism. Schedule very unbelievable around holiday time. Store open til 1 am. It’s never busy at that time. Employee discount good. GratisHours"
Sales (Current Employee) says"This company is honestly the worst to work for . All their managers are idiots . They don’t know what to do in certain situations when they should know . They don’t care about their workers . Most of the employees are idiots as well as the managers . Never doing anything or helping . Paid weeklyManagement is trash"
