    I worked at Brooks Brothers full-time

    Pros

    The name and the brands they own are prestigious.

    Cons

    The new management is awful. They're laying off people, morale is horrible, they toss people aside and it's only gotten worse.

    Advice to Management

    Take the silver spoon out of your mouth and your preference of a certain nationality and appreciate people.

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

    Pros

    -Working one-on-one with customers is enjoyable and rewarding.
    -At the end of every month you receive a commission check that, in my experience, is equal to at least one week's pay.

    Cons

    -Because the company is not growing there is no opportunity for promotions or salary increases, even if you perform well and are consistently going above and beyond for the company

    Advice to Management

    -My manager is great, so keep doing what you're doing!
