many Yeezy employees are calling Kanye West For their allegedly toxic workplace environment!

A new report published by Rolling stone Wednesday elaborated on what it was like for the 45-year-old artist to work under his fashion brand Yeezy, What may have seemed like a dream job to some fans, was a nightmare to others, so many former employees claim that there was an “abusive” workplace environment and a “cult-like atmosphere” at the company. As one adidas Yeezy senior team member explained:

“The amount of chaos, the amount of tension and nothing compares to it” [the amount of] Worry you’re working for Yeezy.”

One designer also told the publication:

“His anger at us in everyday conversation was unwarranted, and honestly an HR nightmare.”

another pair:

“How he is on social media is exactly how he is with employees.”

Well, if you’ve seen what’s gone down on his social media over the past year, you can probably get a clearer picture of how he was driving Yeezy…

Reportedly, staff members were expected to work long hours—typically between 12 and 15-hour days—and to deal with Kanye’s eccentricities and sudden demands, including sudden packing up and making the office a little longer. Moving with caveats will involve. A former employee who worked for the brand in 2020 shared:

“He thrives from chaos. He needs everything else to keep him hungry and motivated.”

One ex-contractor said that everyone thinks Kanye “expects him to act like he works,” adding:

“There was no room for life. Therefore, you are always, always, always at work.”

While that type of hustle culture was considered inspirational years ago, people these days are more aware of the importance of work-life balance and its impact on overall health. Someone else mentioned:

“We [didn’t] Leave it until Kanye is gone. Nobody wanted anything to go wrong when Kanye was there because if there’s a mega-superstar and the printer doesn’t work your job could definitely be in jeopardy. ,

Adding to the high demands, Rolling stone noted that random layoffs and “sudden firings in the office were the norm”, leading many to feel that their jobs were always at risk because someone could be fired for something as harmless as wearing the wrong color. A Yeezy executive alleged that Kanye told a top creative person who wore a yellow sweater to the office that he had to “dress for the palette or you were dressed in black.” After this the company fired the person from the job.

And this is not the only example of baseless firing. A few weeks before the fashion designer’s first collection, he was working with other designers and had his own music playing in the background. When someone asked if he turned on anything else, you asked someone else in the room for suggestions. He turned to a random staff member who preferred punk and rock music:

“I thought, ‘Oh, he’s a rapper, I should probably mention some rap.'”

He mentioned Fly, And as you know, she and Kanye haven’t always been on good terms, so the employee was reportedly fired over:

“Big mistake – I was fired the next day.”

Part of the issue of devastation in the office, the employees explained, had to do with the fact that Kanye never had a reliable inner circle because the place was always a revolving door of people who had no separate role in the business. :

“It was just pure chaos. There was no structure; no one but Kanye knew who the boss was.”

One contractor described how Kanye tried to run the company as he produced an album, worked with a group of collaborators to make the music, and then parted ways after it was completed — some One that doesn’t translate well to a successful business:

“The biggest issue is that they don’t have high-level operational people they trust. Without an operational backbone, no company can really exist for long. You can’t build a multi-billion dollar brand without an operations director who stays in the job for more than six months. …he needs professionals who don’t give the fuck that he’s Kanye West. ,

Apart from the continuous firing, payment to his employees was also an issue. Several staff members reportedly went to MONTHS without seeing their salaries deposited in their bank accounts and had to ask for money from the family until they got paid. At one point, he “mini-strike” until he received his money – but still had people waiting to receive their checks. A former Yeezy member further claimed that Kanye would withhold payment approval as “revenge” against Adidas’ demands:

“I’m not sure she ever realized that the people in her class weren’t being paid. I think she just thought, ‘I’m not taking this stuff for granted because I’m so angry for XYZ. so I’ll stop whatever I’m doing [Adidas] bring[s] us to pay.’ I really don’t know that he ever looked deeply enough to know that it was affecting his own people. ,

While some employees had positive things to say about working with Kanye, most had a lot of negative things to say about it, including a contractor working at Yeezy in 2019 who Said that it was “the worst job I’ve ever had and the best job I’ve ever had, as well.” he explained:

“When you work for someone who has so much vision and so much money, you can make a really incredible change… All he does is make a huge mess of freeing up all of the people’s time. The bus consumes its entire life and then the output is simply left on the side of the road.”

Elsewhere in the report, Kanye – who has come under criticism for himself anti-semitic remarks – Reportedly remarked to employees that “Skinheads and Nazis were their biggest inspiration” when they were going through a bunch of clothes Paris Fashion Week In your El Le showroom.

Remember how his recent controversies started when he decided to wear a “White Lives Matter” shirt? Well, a source said he told employees he wanted to push the “We’re n*****ish” message.

,

When Kanye stepped out on the show in a problematic shirt Candace OwensOne employee said that many in the office felt “very uncomfortable”:

“It was like, ‘What the fuck?’ It was definitely a topic of conversation amongst everyone. A lot of us were very uncomfortable with it. It was frustrating professionally for everyone who worked really hard and then to talk shirts the whole thing “

Two recent ex-workers believe Kanye’s recent stunts were part of a plan to ensure Adidas and gap Pulling his contracts with him, others noted that he thought he would be “in complete control of his designs.” Well, the father of four only partially fulfilled his wish, as many brands, including Adidas and balenciaspassed break up with him Following their anti-Semitic comments, Adidas recently stated that they still “owned” the designs.
