    I have been working at Ted Baker London part-time (more than a 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.

    Pros

    Clothes are cute, interesting customers, unique sense of style

    Cons

    no chance to get promoted. Managers are too buddy buddy. Last time that I worked there the West Coast Area Manager was making inappropriate sexual jokes about the store managers husband. I feel in the next 10 years these people will be weeded out and Ted will be a lot better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Small companies need to work out their flaws. In 10 years or so, with the growth of this company, it will be much better. You have to wait for time to pass.

    I worked at Ted Baker London full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere in store, combining rigarous training to ensure you are at the top of your game. Great enthusiasm from other staff and management and brilliant staff benefits and perks. There are opportunities to move around as I moved from the Portsmouth to Richmond stores and both were very enjoyable. Team training and knowledge about the brand was exciting to learn about and inform customers about every day.

    Cons

    Challenges included retaining the large amount of information that was expected by management in order to be well versed in both the product and company history.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember that your staff are new and it takes time to be well versed in the company history and procedures. This can even be the case when moving between different stores as there are differences between outlets and full price stores. It is a learning process and takes time and repetition before these skills become second nature.

    Former Employee - Sales Person in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    I worked at Ted Baker London full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The training is like nothing i have encountered before, very informal but taught me lots about my self and my approach to customers. i was constantly encouraged to learn different aspects of the business such as the admin systems, weekly reports and figures, not just sales. This certainly helped when i left to go on university placement, as the training and drive carried through.

    Cons

    there can be a lot of pressure to hit targets, as is the case in many retail positions. being in part of a concession in HOF I often found my self being pestered by store managers to push master cards on customers, this can be very awkward and uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take into consideration the amount of hard work your sales staff put in, and perhaps pay them a wage to match that responsibility.

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Ted is the sense of community, I love the working environment and the 'banter' (for lack of a better word) is really good. I also love the friendships you can build within the company. Meeting Ray when I worked at the Bicester store was also a really cool thing to happen.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are the stress, working in the stockroom sometimes people don't appreciate your hard work as much as you think they should. I also find it hard sometimes to stay focused when I'm working a long day, but I find it's easier to set myself targets and milestones - which I then complete throughout the day and it helps it go quicker and I get more jobs done that way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication amongst each other and other members of staff.
