    I worked at Brooks Brothers full-time

    Pros

    I loved working at this store. The ppl who came in at the Detroit airport was great. My boss was the best. The clothes are top of the line, and store is always super clean.

    Cons

    Some how the union come in and changed everything with all the employees every 6 months. Good luck keeping ppl . Just annoying. Really chatty employees too don't mind there own.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to get rid of the bad ones there are tones that will take there place.

    I have been working at Brooks Brothers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent suits and dress shirts, as well as contracted brands such as Allen Edmonds and Peale that are top-notch products.

    Cons

    District management doesn't listen to local employees. Store managers are strong advocates for local retail stores, but rarely have their suggestions implemented

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales associates. We do the work.
