I worked at Esprit Holdings

Shift Flexibility
Easy tasks
Gain good experience
Very Reputable Company
Good Employee Incentives( Discounts, Commission on high sales)

Cons

Constantly changing management
Bad communication between smaller staff and anyone in head office
I felt that casual employees were not values at all
They are budget orientated and will cut shifts without thought about individual workers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To carefully look at the management you have in the store and to see how they make their casual staff appreciated in all their hard work

    I have been working at Esprit Holdings

    Pros

    Good incentives

    Annual Salary is ok

    Good staff discounts on merchandise

    Good to have on your Resume as they are a Global company

    Sponsor your Visa

    Cons

    They expect you to work major over time and you are not compensated for it. They have major salary budget cut backs which is difficult to complete tasks - hence why they expect you to work over time in your own time to save on salary costs. A typical 38 hour week can turn in to a 50 hour week. The management team is more focused on the $ more so then on their workers. Main managers of the business have too much responsibilities that they neglect who actually are the poor performers in their business. Esprit has the highest staff turnover as a lot of people are worked until they are stressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A reflection on all your current store managers is in need. Also your Area Managers need to focus on their people skills and better their judgement on situations. A lot of people can talk the talk but not walk the walk. I had to leave due to a Manager being so unorganised and was over covering up their mistakes. This i have witnessed in a lot of the stores.

    I have been working at Esprit Holdings

    Pros

    Good place to learn the steps of customer service and balancing cash. This later contributes to other jobs which require a backbone in such areas.

    Cons

    No room for review or advancement. Once you join Esprit, the chances of promotion is slim as a sales associate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more fair distribution of hours and reasonable reviews so that employees feel more in touch. Some managers are great people, but some could do better.
