    I worked at Brooks Brothers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The supervisors and veteran associates are very willing to help
    -Learned about fashion throughout employment
    -Reasonable hours and accommodating for calling days off

    Cons

    -Never know how many customers to expect that day
             -I have worked a shifts only seeing a handful of customers, but I also have
               worked shifts with ~100 customers
    -Learning is done gradually throughout employment during shifts and so I felt lost for the first week or so

    Advice to Management

    Have a comprehensive education on the position before the first shift

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brooks Brothers in June 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was held over the phone and originally was supposed to be about my background and knowledge of marketing. However, the majority of the interview was a discussion about my interests in business and marketing, for example the association between corporate social responsibility and marketing.
