I have been working at Ted Baker London full-time

Pros

concessions are in luxury department stores (good for CV), friendly colleagues, high staff turnover (always jobs available), employee discount

Cons

bad management, high staff turnover (always dealing with newbies who don't know the ropes), have to pay for expensive uniform, bad pay (we are the lowest paid workers in the luxury department stores), not paid overtime (paid in holidays instead which is a hassle)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

3 items of uniform should be given to full-time staff for free, 1 item should be given to part-timers, up pay packet by at least a euro an hour, stop nonsense with paying in holidays, pay bonuses in such a way that we are not taxed on them, restructure your management, organise rotas one month in advance, don't allow staff to "cover" in another store(as I have been doing for the past while)

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in New York, NY

    I have been working at Ted Baker London part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros were meeting very interesting people, corporate offices located upstairs, press events, top sales in the nation, high foot traffic, exclusive lines, beautiful store, top-performing team, sales incentives and bonuses. Bonuses were often hit because of the high foot traffic and location.

    Cons

    Architecture separates team. Stressful work environment because of foot traffic, LP issues, etc. Store is opened longer than other locations in city. Incredibly difficult to get requested days off verified and accepted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LP problems should not be directly blamed on sales associates. Schedule more associates throughout the day. Respect employee's need for certain days off.
