If you are in the job market for a seasonal position, DO NOT work at Ann Taylor on Madison Avenue. This place is ***!!! PLEASE! Do save yourself now and and avoid this cess pit! The management is the worst, they yell at you! They treat you like dirt, like you're lower than dirt! The managers all talk about each other, they even talk about managers at other stores. There is no loyalty amongst them, but then they expect YOU to have loyalty to THEM!!! After you just witnessed one manager dog the next one out!!! They act like a bunch of spoiled kids!! Professionalism does not exist in this place!! One of the managers can't even speak decent English! She routinely adds extra syllables and consonants to simple everyday words! And then she brags about how she is working on here MBA! Her handwriting looks like that of a 4 year old and she throws tantrums when the other managers are not around, and then she smiles real big when the DM shows up!
OMG! Don't get me started on the GM! I don't even want to repeat the things that I have heard her say about other GMs and former managers. Professionalism does not exist in this building! I feel like I'm working at Target or WalMart! Don't even get me started on how the effeminate manager calls other woman "***" regularly, especially the former GM!! They don't like the last GM and its obvious how they are always dogging her out, they have plenty to say about her! But yet they smile all up in her face when she comes in for meetings! They are such a disgrace and poor examples of leaders!
And the way that they talk about the associates???? So sad! SO SAD! I just listen, I don't say anything! But please believe it that I have all of this mess written down because this place will one day go down! I don't know WHERE they got these people from to manage this place, but with their level of unprofessionalism TRUST ME everything that is coming to them will catch up to them! It always does! You can't expect to mistreat other human beings, good people, and think that the law of Karma wont eventually sweep through!
