Valentino Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Valentino S.p.A. is an Italian clothing company founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani and part of Valentino Fashion Group, which in turn is owned by the State of Qatar through Mayhoola for Investments S.P.C. Since October 2008, the creative director is Pier Paolo Piccioli. Alessandra Facchinetti was Valentino's creative designer from 2007 to 2008. Valentino is headquartered in Milan, while the creative direction is in Rome.
One angry customer shared this in a review "It’s hard to believe such a brand could be a scammer.. but sad to see that they have turned in to a scammer. Do not order anything from Valentino online, they don’t send you receipts, phone number is wrong, you emailed them everyday without getting a reply, once they get your money end of it story. They don’t send you the product you paid for.So shame, I would have never thought this would happen with such brand, but I don’t think they will last too long. PLEASE PLEASE don’t order anything online, if you want to buy something buy it Directly from the shop."
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) says"Disgusting company for work , terrible pay, don’t care about staff at all. The uniform is totally uncomfortable. The client in Australia are Chinese and don’t understand how he Valentino concept. Cons: Everything"
Manejo y supervision de caja (Former Employee) says"Valentino es una empresa donde carecen la seriedad y estabilidad por parte de sus administradores."
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) says"Ambiente de trabajo estresante. Mala gestión del manager y RRHH. Formación nula. MAL AMBIENTE DE TRABAJO. Ninguna posibilidad de desarrollar una carrera en la empresa en esta zona. Cons: Mal ambiente"
atencion al cliente (Former Employee) says"Estoy agredecida de haber trabajo en valentino fui azafata atencia muy bien a mis clientes siempre,recibiendolos com una sonrisa al llegar y un gracias al finalizar.pero por falta de.personal pq se llenaba demasiado aveces tenia que atender 20 mesas sola y por motivos de no tener ayudante me retire."
Camarera (Former Employee) says"Las dificultades de cada puesto son algo natural aunque no siempre sea fácil todo es posible."
mesero vendedor (Former Employee) says"la realización de actividades antes de la apertura la limpieza del salón y sin dejar atras la atencion al cliente bebidas, cocteleria y un cierre de cuentas"
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"A good place to work, privately owned so there is a difficulty advancing. Beautiful things, people who want to spend money and the brand drives itself."
Former Employee - Sales Associate says"I worked at Valentino part-time for more than a year Cons: Zero training for sales employees. Weak and unprofessional management. Managers did not understand how to positively reinforce their employees. Company only cares about the bottom line. Management sought to make sure that employees knew they were expandable. No motivation from management. Poor management. Lack of structure. Managers did not understand how to maximize the businesses potential. Employees were threatened with loss of employment had they not meet their goals, yet the store itself was having difficulty to produce."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Valentino full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Corporate office is a terrible place to work. Department managers are there only so self promote and foster an environment based on fear and self blame. Avoid at all costs. Sales are suffering because of it."
Former Employee - Account Manager says"I worked at Valentino full-time Cons: no room to grow. the company has atrocious middle management. people are leaving like crazy."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Valentino full-time Cons: superior is biased and not professional"
Operation Manager says"I worked at Valentino for less than a year Cons: Does not value their employees unless you are skinny, young, and don't really need a job. Instead of constructive feedback with possible solution to difficulties, it's all very discouraging with no options as a solution except open threats to employees losing their position... Sad"
says"I have been working at Valentino Cons: Let's just say if someone from a corporate level knew what went on in stores, they would be highly disappointed. It was shocking to see the employees have no clue about the simplest things (like providing good customer service to EVERYONE). Highly disappointed in the creditability from such a well known and established luxury brand."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Valentino full-time Cons: No HR. High level executives have no email etiquette. Work is not appreciated and constant hounding from executives. No teamwork and proper collaboration with other departments. Learn on your own mentality. Benefits are the bare minimum. CEO is a micro manager and nothing can be said against her even when she is wrong."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Valentino full-time Cons: Zero teamwork, lack of team collaboration Poor management across the board Zero on-boarding, performance reviews, or regular feedback People are not the focus, only bottom line sales Read into how your interview goes...if that person is not paying attention to you (checking email, talking on the phone and texting) that is a strong gauge as to how they are going to future "manage.""
Former Employee - Retail says"I worked at Valentino full-time for more than a year Cons: Poor management and no support from corporate. They do not value their retail employees, treat them like numbers, and practice negative lectures during meetings. They also like to keep everyone on their toes by constantly threatening employees position, and at times making condescending remarks."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Valentino full-time Cons: Management, team, hq and culture"

This was way back last year and until now I have not received it. They claimed it was because of covid and sent a new one, but even that did not come."
Mel says"It’s a scam!!! Do not buy from here! I wish I had done my research about the website before buying."
Casper says"I bought a pair of shoes in December 2019.
January 2020 they were already broken.
I contact them in february to tell them about this problem, but no answer.
It took me 29 mails before their costumer service finally answered me in August 2020.
They told me i could send my shoes back, and they would repair them.
I send them back, and 8 weeks later they tells me that it's my own fault, and they couldn't do anything about it.
I had weared the shoes carefully like 15 times.
kimona tolbert says"I paid for my order but NEVER received it. It's been 7 months and no follow-up from the company. Save your money and time. STAY AWAY!!"
Nene Hall says"I ordered 5 watches £10@ it di arrived butnot as adverized. I emailed them and got response acknowledging the problem but few more emails and i was blocked. so nowhere to contact them. I want a refund for the crap useless piece of rubbish watches they sent me. whed can we go to make a complaint against this company for fraud and deceiving costumers."
sara rahimi says"I hate this company and I can’t believe they treat their customer like this the customer service is awful I bought this sneakers and after one week one stone fall out and they didn’t return because I wan not happy whit that and they didn’t give me another pair just fix it that they last 6 weeks
It means winter and I can not use it any more"
Noémi Rongits says"A T-shirt from Valentino needed to be sent back for reparation two times and it lasted 10 weeks to get the T-shirt back. How can a brand like this afford something like this? I am really unsatisfied!"
DO NOT TRUST !!!!!
These Horrible people (if you can call them people) stole 50 pounds from me !!! I never Received my items, never received my money back, never heard back...
so painful!! :’("
Halima Ramzan says"Ordered 3 watches back in June and they haven't arrived and have been sending emails back and forth to today where there email has stopped working, scammers"
Leigh Balfour says"I’d give it 0 if I could. I ordered 3 watches back in June and every week I’ve been emailed saying they are resolving it as the products never arrived. Well today I sent an email and it got sent back saying there is no such email so there my money gone!"
Irina MLC says"waiting for my money back for return already 2months!bed custumer service,I really don't know what else to do!was my forst time when I order something from them and will be the last one!I hope I will get my money back"
aliya butt says"Recieved shoes that I didn’t even order, I returned for a refund and it’s been over 5 weeks no refund. Worst customer service who never ever reply to email properly. It’s the worse company I have ever dealt with."
Michele Tibbitt says"I ordered 3 dresses, 2 of the 3 were not the same. They sent similar products but not what I ordered and not what was advertised. Material super cheap and delivery took over a month. I had to send numerous emails before they actually shipped the products."
Natasha Kaur says"Can I give negative stars? Poor customer service returned shoes over a month ago every day customer service Acknowledged return saying I will get my refund and wait a few days a month later still no refund crooks!!! Please don’t buy from them. Will now need to report to credit card company no option! I recommend everyone waiting for refund to do the same.
Update received refund last week nearly 5 months after original request."
JULIA LAIRD says"The worst customer after care I have ever received... The sandals purchased I was pleased with but no dust bag provided. Once I checked and was advised they should have one included they would not send me one. The best they could offer for something I had already paid for was a free shipping for my next purchase!!! Like I will shop with them again!!!! Absolutely NOT and I strongly advise others not to either. For such a large business and particularly in times of Covid you would have thought with distance selling they should be going above and beyond to keep their customers happy. Very Disappointed ☹️"
Boulis says"advice: a very bad product with very bad dishes and too expensive. I bought a clean one for 6 weeks now that it is broken. I came back with complaints! they want to dissolve again with glue. really very bad (Amsterdam)"
Kim Desjarlais says"Actually zero stars. I ordered a ring in December 2019. It is a few days before August 2020. Every time I email they give the same spiel, or shall I say Same LIE. It’s on its way...
Always an excuse. This is A SCAM!!!
As another commenter stated it is not the money, it is the principal. I was hoping for New Years I would have the ring to give to my daughter. Then I was hoping Valentine’s Day, then Easter haha you get the point. They Are a SCAM!!"
H Lib says"I wouldn't even give them a 1 star! I really wished that I read these reviews before placing an order from Valentino. The worst decision of my life. I ordered an item which I returned, I have yet to receive even an acknowledgement let alone my refund. Absolutely disgusting customer service for such a big brand. I will never buy from this brand again! Stay clear, do not order from them or you will regret it."
Victor Marin says"Ordered a bag in late June and never received it because UPS lost the package. They won't assume responsability and refund my money back. I keep calling their horrible customer service and they always tell me they will have an answer for me by the next day. Of course the answer never comes. I'm writing this on the 27th of July, after almost a month of ordering the product..."
Adriana Hernandez says"I order the Rockstud wedge Sandal to pick up in store I went to Rodeo drive to pick up I asked for a bag because I was carrying more stuff, she said I cannot give you a bag “store policy” I asked if I was able to try them on she said “ No” do to COVID-19 I can understand that but she was super rude! She also said the store has nothing to do with online orders ! I spend $815 and you can’t even give me a bag. Lol Balenciaga offered me water bottle. They need to hire people that loves working there same thing with your customer service over the phone !!!! They’re so rude and don’t help at all."
