    Current Employee - Production Coordinator in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I have been working at HauteLook as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Feel appreciated, nice people, cool employee perks

    Cons

    very mundane working system. They have it set up and organized where you do the same exact thing everyday. Also I don't know why it's necessary to get the whole departments emails. It makes it harder to stay on top of my emails when I get 800 a day. They hire a lot of employees so you have a lot of help, but that contributes to the low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, maybe people would stay there longer.

    Pros

    Great work environment, good vibe, young professional coworkers. Good atmosphere. Workload is always challenging but never boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to involve your employees a little more, they would be more than happy to help.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I worked at HauteLook full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nordstrom owned, great benefits, great working environment. Everyone works hard and the company is always sponsoring fun activities to balance out the fast paced work. They promote growth opportunity within the company and want to help you grow with the company.

    Cons

    Poor communication between the different departments. Although every dept constantly works with one another, there is a sense of hierarchy. One dept thinking they are priority than the other which often cause tension. There is also long hours especially Fridays or before holidays, which can be understandable but just mentioning as a heads up.

    Pros

    You can wear whatever you want? Discount of course...free parking.

    Cons

    Everyone is attracted to HauteLook now because they see "Nordstrom", but internally HL is a mess. Turnover is insane, there is no growth opportunity even though you're led to believe that in the interview process (among many other false promises), and everyone is paid SO far below market rate it's a joke. Everyone openly talks about how dissatisfied they are and that they are looking for new jobs, but no one in management or HR notices or cares. If you slack off and are incompetent, chances are you'll get promoted, while 30 intelligent employees will walk out the door in one week to better jobs with better pay, and their managers are left scratching their heads wondering why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and do something about all of the problems instead of thinking they are going to disappear. If you treat your employees like they are disposable, they'll leave. Earn the respect of your coworkers and direct reports by working hard to actually live up to the title and inflated compensation you're given. You can't blame your problems on being a "start-up" 8 years after your inception, 800 employees, and a Nordstrom acquisition later... take responsibility.

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities to move in the company, and it's a good place to learn the ropes of the e-commerce fashion industry.

    Cons

    There is a lot of young people there, so not a lot of maturity. The pay is well below industry rates. They will tell you one thing and do another. There is very little communication, though they like to pretend like your opinion makes a difference. It's very clique-y.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to the people under you. Trust them to do their job.
