BR is great when it comes to employee discounts, flexible schedules, & good extra source of income.

Sales Support (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsEmployee discount is 50% of full price items & 10% off sale items. Management requests that you push the credit card on customers but it is more of a team effort than individually based. Depending on the store, there is great flexability on getting days off and your availability. You get extra incentives for opening up a lot of credit cards. The incentive program for meeting top sales quota has been discontinued so the only way to make extra cash is to impose the BRC on customers.

ConsPay and pay increases are not great but it is some form of extra income. Managers are often uneducated, minimal performers, low to mid IQs, but need to be good motivators. Product changes quite often, so does the layout of the store, so keeping track of where things are can be a challenge.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease hourly wages to attract highly qualified individuals and not high school students looking for drinking money. Increase the standards and training so that employees can provide better outfits and styles for customers. Train employees how to measure a customer's tailor measurements. Offer training on pairing colors, material attributes, or how a specific cut fits on different body types.
