    shop managers should have a larger day in regards to the product the need versus what they receive. paying the right people more will keep them happier in the long run.

    Pros

    GREAT discount... unless you work in a Bloomingdale's concession

    Cons

    Terrible middle management, no direction or stock control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what your doing with the Bloomingdale's concessions because it was not possible making the daily sales goals set for us

    I worked at Ted Baker London full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -great working atmosphere
    -I became very good friends with most of the people I worked with
    -really fun trainings (in the mornings, few times a week- I am not sure they still do it)
    -good discount for clothes plus twice a year clothing allowance for sales staff
    -staff parties

    Cons

    -our manager was really petty and loved some people while literally hating others. She made my day really horrible, silly comments and stuff, didn't allow the clothes we wanted for uniform, changed dates and hours without telling us and later blamed people for being late.
    NOT A GOOD MANAGEMENT STYLE overall.
    -not many opportunities to get some experience in HO (once you work in a store)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make it easier for employees to change stores they work in

    Current Employee - Sales Associate

    I have been working at Ted Baker London full-time

    Pros

    concessions are in luxury department stores (good for CV), friendly colleagues, high staff turnover (always jobs available), employee discount

    Cons

    bad management, high staff turnover (always dealing with newbies who don't know the ropes), have to pay for expensive uniform, bad pay (we are the lowest paid workers in the luxury department stores), not paid overtime (paid in holidays instead which is a hassle)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    3 items of uniform should be given to full-time staff for free, 1 item should be given to part-timers, up pay packet by at least a euro an hour, stop nonsense with paying in holidays, pay bonuses in such a way that we are not taxed on them, restructure your management, organise rotas one month in advance, don't allow staff to "cover" in another store(as I have been doing for the past while)
