Net A Porter Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
YOOX NET-A-PORTER Group is an Italian online fashion retailer created on 5 October 2015 after the merger between Yoox Group and Net-a-porter Group (NAP). Yoox was originally founded by Federico Marchetti in Milan in 2000, and Net-a-Porter was founded by Natalie Massenet in London in 2000. Beginning in 2003, Richemont invested in NAP. In 2015, Yoox purchased NAP shares from Richemont and established the Yoox-Net-a-Porter Group. In May 2018, Richemont acquired YNAP by purchasing 95% of the company's available shares. The combined company has become a global e-commerce player that serves more than 180 countries worldwide.
A former employee of Net A Porter wrote this on indeed.com: Net A Porter is the worst place to work and if I had another place to work this is the last option. Management has a serious case of favoritism and I clearly wasn't on the favorite list. The coworkers there are extremely not genuine and extremely rude. I don't recommend this place.
Packer/Picker (Former Employee) says"This is a god awful company that exploits migrant workers. They offer zero hour contract which means you have no job security. They will treat you like a donkey. Cons: Exploitative"
Adetta al controllo qualità (Former Employee) says"Stipendio non combacia con le ore di lavoro e ne con il tipo di lavoro stesso"
operaia (Former Employee) says"Il posto peggiore dove abbia mai lavorato. Attenzione al lavoratore pari a zero, responsabili incapaci e stressate. Luogo sporco e malsano, possibilità di crescita nulla, unico interesse il totale di pezzi da imballare. Stipendio da fame, si lavora per otto ore in piedi e guai ad appoggiarsi nei pochi attimi in cui le macchine sono ferme. 50 gradi in estate è 0 in inverno."
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) says"This company is terrible. The compensation is terrible and the managers do nothing but micromanage you. I would rather be unemployed then work there. k"
Prelievo, imballaggio (Former Employee) says"Ho lavorato all' imballaggio e prelievo. Le colleghe che avevano iniziato con me erano simpatiche e le tutor brave. Purtroppo il lavoro è pesante perché stai in piedi sempre con delle scarpe anti infortunistiche che ti spaccano i piedi e dal punto di vista psicologico è alienante. Fin dal primo giorno ti incitano ad esaltarti per il numero di pezzi che fai, richiedono un minimo di 50 pezzi prelevati ed imballati all ora cioè ritmi da paura senza climatizzazione, già dopo 10 minuti di lavoro abbiamo le magliette bagnate dal sudore. La cosa che non capisco è come la maggior parte delle colleghe siano gratificate dal numero di pezzi che fanno, perché non è un lavoro creativo e non vieni pagata in base ai pezzi. Molte caporeparto sono rumene e parlano con le colleghe rumene nella loro lingua cosa che trovo maleducata e non prefessionale cioè se siamo in tre e io sono italiana non puoi parlare con l altra in rumeno e davanti a me che non capisco, siamo i italia e le istruzioni me le dovresti dare in italiano Cons: Esaltazione per il numero dei pezzi, ritmi assurdi senza aria condizionata"
Express Temp (Former Employee) says"This job was absolutely the worst place to work and if I had another place to work this is the last option. Management has a serious case of favoritism and I clearly wasn't on the favorite list. The coworkers there are extremely not genuine and extremely rude. I don't recommend this place."
Imbustaggio, confezionamento (Former Employee) says"Orari pesanti su turni con occasionali notturni, dal lunedì al venerdì anche se chiedono spesso di fare i sabati, magari dopo il turno della sera senza possibilità di recupero. In alcuni periodi dell'anno sono obbligatori. Hanno la banca ore, quindi non tutto è pagato come straordinario. Ambiente pesante, non tanto fisicamente (diversamente non può essere, è quasi una fabbrica), ma psicologicamente. Troppa pressione sui pezzi che devono essere raggiunti senza avere adeguata formazione e strumentazione, che è vecchia e poco funzionante. Se fossimo pagati anche in base ai pezzi, magari sarebbe più stimolante... non si è persone ma numeri che fanno pezzi. Tutor e responsabili, anche se non tutti, messi lì sono a fare terrorismo e ansia. Non sanno fare i leader. Team inesistente, troppe persone ostili che fanno dispetti e cattiveria gratuita agli altri. Le pause sarebbero utili se non si perdesse tempo per uscire e passare i controlli, e se ci fosse una zona ristoro per i dipendenti. C'è una saletta chiamata mensa ma di mensa non ha nulla se non 2 frigo e qualche microonde, qualche tovagliolo magari. I bagni spesso sporchi e fetidi. Forniscono scarpe anti infortunistiche scomodissime che torturano piedi e schiena, quindi tutti se le comprano di tasca propria. Temperature elevate in quanto assente aria condizionata in più zone, c'è solo qualche ventilatore, ma si tende a rubare pure quello. Lavorateci solo se ne avete strettamente bisogno e appena avete modo, andate via per qualcosa di migliore. C'è tantissimo lavoro da fare per migliorare le cose, spero che se ne occupino. Non è"
Sales and Customer Care Consultant (Former Employee) says"Constantly having to apologize for things out of your control since the quality control for this company is abysmal. Customers are always upset about the delivery methods as the cheapest methods are often used. The managers have their favorites and it is very obvious who they prefer regardless of their performance."
Porter group (Former Employee) says"Ti fanno fare solo una cosa e non ti permottono d'imparare altro, sei per 8 ore in piedi anche senza fare niente perchè lavoro non c'è e se parli 2 secondi col tuo vicino ti stanno sgridando!,"
Finance (Former Employee) says"Truly awful place to work. Management is incompetent both in terms of managing the policies& processes as well as people. The department I worked in was extremely unorganized which created a lot of chaos and anxiety for the staff. I would definetely not recommend this workplace. Cons: Management"
Quality & Repair (Current Employee) says"not a great environment overall. Needs to pay warehouse employees more money. People from the office feel more superior then people from the warehouse. Cons: envoironment"
Ex-Facchina (Former Employee) says"Questa azienda forgia e tempra: in molti entrano e in pochi rimangono. Quei pochi hanno la mia ammirazione e il mio rispetto. Cons: Innumerevoli"
Addetta reparto automazioni fotografiche (Former Employee) says"Ambiente molto competitivo, ritmi serrati da fabbrica bengalese, lavoro alienante, stesse azioni, stessi movimenti per 8 ore, orari su turni, retribuzione molto bassa, nessuna possibilità di crescita né professionale, né umana. Cons: Nessuna crescita professionale, lavoro meccanico e ripetitivo"
Creative (Former Employee) says"They pay $15 an hour for a creative job and then think $600 is a good annual raise. Also remember they are hourly and a person in Saudi Arabia just bought 40% of the company so most likely will out source all jobs in USA. Bad salary, and don't promote, just dangle it in front of you so you work hard. Only apply and accept a job here if you are desperate. Cons: Bad salary, bad raises, won't promote, not a place to work long term"
Fullfillment Associate (Former Employee) says"This company is all about Management. All they are concerned about is themselves. The actual workers are petty pawns. The raises for maximum work is via cents. So this is not the place to retire at. This company allows for employees to express themselves in a racial format to each other. There is a lot of favoritism with the company. Basically the hire then fire so they don't have to give you a raise. Which is not much as I have mentioned. The training is way different once you start actually working. The pay schedule sucks. Every other month you only get paid for 30 hours but work 4 days. Cons: Management, Racist, Pay, Unsophisticated"
E-Commerce Associate/Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) says"wasnt the best experience, bosses are rude, HR dept doesnt work in your best interest. A lot of micro managing. Management is not qualified to over see people."
Data Entry (Former Employee) says"Considerato il ruolo per cui ero stata convocata non mi aspettavo granché ma neppure di essere trattata alla stregua di una deportata."
Manutentore (Former Employee) says"Sono stato assunto a tempo determinato con la possibilità di assunzione a tempo indeterminato, una cosa che mi hanno specificato era che non assumevano parenti, amici e così via, peccato che conoscendo pian piano tutti i dipedenti, per la maggior parte fossero tutti imparentati, ovviamente a tempo indeterminato e amici/conoscenti. Sono stato spostato in vari settori a svolgere varie mansioni, per poi essere spostato a svolgere la mansione di manutentore (per via della mia esperienza in informatica/elettronica), mi dissero che mi avrebbero insegnato a sistemare vari problemi. Ovviamente così non è stato, sono stato utilizzato come tappa buchi e alla fine sono stato lasciato a casa. L'azienda in sè non è male, ma è gestita veramente male, tra orari e settimane lavorative improponibili (in un mese mi è capitato di lavorare 10 giorni di fila fino allo sfinimento), vietatissimo parlare con i colleghi, anche se di lavoro non se ne trovava manco cercandolo, però intanto i capi reparto passavano il tempo a parlare tra di loro. Se volete farvi un favore, non prendeteli neanche in considerazione per un impiego. Cercate altro, in giro si trova di meglio. Cons: Stipendio, orari lavorativi, gestione dell'azienda."
Customer Care Consultant (Former Employee) says"They make you go through many interviews and once they are satisfied they call you with the congratulations talk. Then they push you to hand in your notice before they give you a 2 week training. They expect you to get 85% in your training, this result changes every year."
Packer associate (Former Employee) says"Great place to shop! But again treats the workers like no-bodies no comparison, no room to grow, rude, ridiculous bunch of miserable individuals!! You would think they were doctors or doing a service something important!! Cons: Not a great place to work at time, rethink it t would b a waste of time!!"
Sveta Is says"I am referring to the order n. 11682685 I made on December, 10th, of a very expensive Naturae Sacra bag. The item arrived to me damaged, with a visible wrinkle on the body and signs and a hole on the handle. Such quality is absolutely not acceptable for the price I paid (440,55 euro) I requested the return, but the currier refused to pick up the parcel with the return label that I received in the package with the item. It took another week to receive the correct label. Finally on December, 29th the currier picked up the return parcel and from that moment I haven't received any update about the return and I haven't received the refund, even if the term of 10 working days according to the return policy had already passed. I wrote to the customer service, but - no answer and no refund, and this is not acceptable. This is the first time in my on-line shopping experience to be treated so badly by the seller, without receiving any feedback from the customer service and without knowing if I will ever receive my refund, and I am really upset about that."
Oana says"Starting 01.01.2021 the shopping experience is way to difficult as NAP works ONLY with DHL - the biggest delivery company - which leave the entire customs clearance procedure to the client. This normally should be assigned to the Delivery company (it's their job to deliver I guess). It is ok for me to pay taxes and duties, but with DHL it is more than that. There are some documents I didn't know how to obtain. In case of returning I faced the same unfriendly procedure. I won't buy from NAP again as long as DHL will be their only delivery option. There are too many on-line luxury companies to choose from. I understand that it is not their fault for all this bureaucracy coming from DHL. However they are responsible to take into consideration other delivery companies knowing all these delivery issues. Until then "1 star shopping experience"."
Valentina Moresco says"All the recent orders had issues with the deliveries and with the latest one I am facing issues with the customer service due to the fact they do not want to refund me taxes while on their website they state that the refund is complete with taxes."
Suzanne Schon says"Do not spend your money here. Bought a Christmas gift for my Mum and on the 12th Jan I still don’t have it. They ship with DHL who have lost my parcel and I competely understand that is out of Net-a-porters hands but I’ve let Net-a-Porter know I don’t have the parcel and they have done nothing. I have been chasing DHL for answers because they won’t resend the item (out of stock) or issue a refund. DHL tell me they have communicated with Net-a-Porter on the status of my delivery but they are not responding to my emails. Really frustrated and disappointed."
Lilly says"I would give them 0! Customer service not answering at all. My calls are rejected and no answer in emails and messages. I made a purchase 8 days ago, not dispatched yet. Was ordering from Marchesfashion and MyTheresa in high season and never had an issue. Never again!"
Francesca Angrisani says"I received an already used product but the worst experience I had with this purchase was discovering the deodorant was expired and if I did not had the knowledge on how to read the batch number, I would have never known that. I had the opportunity to get a brand new deodorant (not received yet) but I would have expected a better feedback/resolution of this very unfortunate situation. The customer service experience has been very poor/disappointing."
Sasalia Setiono says"My order was undelivered to me and it has been 6 weeks now and I still havent gotten a refund or any resolution. I contact them everyday asking and no responses or whatsoever regarding my case. Now my shoes are all soldout, and they still havent given me my money back."
Anna says"The website doesnt work properly, customer service not helpful..no explanation..."
Jolita R says"This horrible company hasn’t refunded me. I placed an order in NOVEMBER (!!!!!!!) and still waiting to get my money back for my lost parcel!!! I wrote many letters to NAP’s customer service and didn’t get an answer. For sure, never again shopping on NAP!!!"
Daria Zie says"I have been waiting for a return for over a month. Customer services is unable to provide the return date. I will never buy anything else there. Regular customer"
Ian O’Shea says"I was very disappointed, my express delivery did not turn up at all. And I was not notified, this was supposed to of been a Christmas present for my daughter, which was a huge blow. I will definitely not be recommending or using you in the future, I will stick with Harrods or selfridges for my future orders, whom have never let me down before!"
Carmel bullivant says"Lucky cherry lipstick was a little waxy . It stayed on well even thru my shower and didn’t get the usual cakey ring around my lips when lipstick wears off! Smelt like coconut! Loved it! Carmel bullivant"
Vessi says"I’ve got mixed feelings about Net-a-Porter. Pros: 1. Delivery was quick. I opted for the standard (£5) delivery option and my scarf came in 2 working days. Quite efficient. 2. Packaging was nice. Beautiful box with ribbon and matching paper to keep the item well protected. Cons: 1. Their app and website need improvements. I got a couple of errors with no explanation whatsoever. An example - discount codes don’t work with all brands (understandable), but you won’t be given a message what went wrong. Instead you’ll be taken back to the payment page as if the card number was wrong. I had to figure this out by myself by going through the entire FAQ. 2. I don’t think that the item I received was new. It was a bit wrinkled. This is not how Gucci ships their stuff. Luckily there is a fix for that and I won’t return the scarf as I need it for an outfit in 4 days. Overall I’m not sure if I’d give Net-a-Porter another chance."
