    I worked at Ted Baker London part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Ted does have a great company culture, although in the US it can be a bit overwhelming. Managers are always willing to help and they want to see you grow, but only within Ted Baker. If you do not have a great team around you, it can be difficult because Ted is all about the team.

    Cons

    The team based learning can either work in your favor or make your experience miserable. It is hard to balance selling while completing the company workbooks that must be completed. The product can be difficult to sell in the U.S. market.

    Former Employee - Sales Person in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    I worked at Ted Baker London full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The training is like nothing i have encountered before, very informal but taught me lots about my self and my approach to customers. i was constantly encouraged to learn different aspects of the business such as the admin systems, weekly reports and figures, not just sales. This certainly helped when i left to go on university placement, as the training and drive carried through.

    Cons

    there can be a lot of pressure to hit targets, as is the case in many retail positions. being in part of a concession in HOF I often found my self being pestered by store managers to push master cards on customers, this can be very awkward and uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take into consideration the amount of hard work your sales staff put in, and perhaps pay them a wage to match that responsibility.

    I worked at Ted Baker London full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ted Baker took the time to educate me in my role, and learnt me all you need to know to succeed in my role and beyond. Great uniform allowance and staff discount policy. Work as a team in all aspects.

    Cons

    Ted baker were sometimes stuck in their ways with the management side of the business. I felt if the face fits you were given the opportunity regardless of experience i.e if you the perfect person for the job but your face didn't fit there was a problem. Being a homosexual and wanting to express my personality which Ted approved to an extent i was punished for this in several ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improved allowance.

    I worked at Ted Baker London full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Ted are obviously the clothes! Love their stuff and the style.The atmosphere is always great, in house promotions are predominately how they promote people so there is great chance to climb the ladder there.

    Cons

    No commission on sales. Very rigid with policies and sometimes targets can be set that can detract from main work too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whilst I was there, before I was in management myself, in one store, management encouraged you and gave you incentives to complete sales/tasks/targets, whilst another, you would be punished (written warnings etc) for not doing so. I think it would help to keep things fair and consistent.
