The managers barely work and get the most pay. Bullying/toxic work environment. No confidentiality. No one follows any rules. Very unprofessional place to work. Cons: Awful corporate/awful management/low pay"

London store says"I got a gift of a bag from my partner for my birthday. Was so paranoid about scuffing it or having it stolen, I used it only 8 times in over a year. The leather on the flap is already peeling off!!! Absolutely joke for a bag that cost £1,500. The store refused to give me a new bag and would only agree to send the bag to a local leather handbag specialist and not an YSL one. I was suppose to receieve the bag within 2 weeks. My boyfriend had to contact them, after a month of hearing nothing, to find out where my bag was. They returned it without the original box and bag and I'm not convinced it's the same handbag. My bag was really stiff as I barely used it and the bag is now extremely soft. Dont bother to waste your money on their bags! Spend it elsewhere. It's even more disgraceful that the only comments from YSL on this forum are ones telling customers that the beauty complaint forum is elsewhere. Everyone else is ignored! Their attitude to customer service is shocking!"
Jacqueline Galdamez says"I drove 2 hours to purchase a bag from the Cabazon Ca location. I was greeted warmly and walked around. Went back and fourth between two bags. An associate finally approached me and consulted me on my potential purchase. I asked her is it OK if I put my wallet in it? I have a fairly large wallet and the bag was small. I wanted to make sure it would fit my only wallet. She said "Ok...just don't run away with it". A joke about theft or any asumtion of theft toward a customer that's about to drop a lot of money is not acceptable. I didnt feel good about having purchased a nice bag, I felt guilty for having given a business my hard earned money after feeling insulted."
Amelia says"This is the most unresponsive customer service team I had encountered. I ordered online on July 21 (Order # 2107Z58592016B) and I received order confirmation saying delivery is 4-7 working days and that they will email me once my order is shipped. On July 23, I contacted them through the client service form to cancel my order since it’s still not shipped and order status is still “Processing”. The auto-generated email said they will do their best to reply within one working day. It’s now July 27 and I still haven’t heard from them. I called them as well on July 24 and I’ve been on the line for 10 minutes but nobody answered so I just dropped off the call. And now, I saw the charge came through in my card for the purchase amount but still the order status is “Processing” and I still didn’t get email confirmation that order was shipped! They really have the audacity to charge me when they haven’t even shipped the item yet and when I specifically requested for the order to be cancelled. Technically, I should be able to cancel the order even today because it has not been shipped. Still no response from customer service via email nor callback (they have my number through the form and my online account with them). I really regret not reading the reviews here first before ordering from them."
