Third Key / Salesperson

Third Key (Former Employee)
Central Valley, NY (US)

I worked at Movado Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMeeting new people through sales,

ConsCommission was not too good and base pay was too low. For commission you start off at 1% for every sale then goes up to 4% by the time you hit 350k for the year, but by then its December. January you start at 1% again. Even with being top sales person in company, you take home maybe 35k a year, hard to make a living on.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo complaints.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good for a job, but forget about making a career!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Movado Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery interesting industry, nice products, reasonable pay, good working environment, good colleagues.

ConsStill very much Mom & Pop HR management. They will hire you for your competences to do a job, but they will only offer a career to those who are part of what can be described as "the extended family",

Advice to Senior ManagementCome on, enter the 21st century already, and give the dinosaurs some well earned R&R!

Great Place to work to learn retail sales

Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Movado Group

Pros- Fair Pay
- Great opportunity to gain some experience in retail sales
- Free watch for employees
- A relaxed environment in most locations

Cons- Low commission percentages on sales
- Customers are usually pretty snobby
- Little room for growth
- Can be boring at times

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvance from within the company as opposed to hiring from the outside. This will give employees a sense of direction while working.
