    Pros

    As a part time job for a High School/College Student, Brooks Brothers was always flexible in scheduling my hours. The other sales associates were always supportive and management was always available to answer any questions.

    Cons

    There is no room for significant advancement in a factory store as there are only three roles: sales associate, assistant manager, and manager. Sometimes other sales associates will do the bare minimum as there is no real incentive to sell. Also there are times when the factory store does not have enough merchandise to sell to the customers (lack of sizes or stock).

    Advice to Management

    While this does differ from a retail store, adding incentives to make sales would decrease laziness and increase revenue. Moreover, make sure to listen to sales associates merchandise needs, as it will ensure that they will be able to sell items to customers.
