    I worked at Brooks Brothers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Retail Sales Associate here gets paid better than at peer companies

    Cons

    Straight up commision pay at flag ship locations creates a very ugly and unhealthy environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should roate commissioned sales associates among departments as each department has different nich and volume and one has much greater advantage than the other(s). For example, women's and children departments have way smaller nich and lower volume than, say, men's sports wear.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Brooks Brothers.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a new store that had not yet opened. Approximately two months after submitting my resume I was contacted for an interview. The interview process itself took about a month. I was initially contacted by the Talent Acquisition Manager for a phone interview. After this I took an online skill and personality assessment which was around 100 questions, approximately 1/3 of which were mathematical story problems. After passing that I moved to a phone interview with the District Manager, then another phone interview with the Regional HR Supervisor. At this point I was invited to take a standard drug screening, and met with the DM for an informal face to face interview. I then met with the candidate they had offered the Store Manager position to for another informal chat to ensure we would function well as a team. After this meeting I was officially offered the position. Throughout the entire process everyone was incredibly polite and professional. I was told exactly what the process would be during my first interview, and that was reiterated to me at each subsequent interview. They were very accommodating of my schedule and transparent throughout the entire process, answering all my questions with extreme detail. I was very impressed by their attention to detail, thoroughness, professionalism, and respect.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions are behavior based, ie: tell me about a time your team let you down, tell me about the most difficult feedback you've received on a performance review, tell me how you drive business in your store, etc.   Answer Question
