    I worked at Burberry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation is decent for a retail company. 2 week’s vacation, 10 paid sick days and time and a half plus a comp day for working on a holiday is a nice incentive.

    Cons

    There is a major communication disconnect between upper management and sales associates. This particular location does not work well as a team and company policies are not followed on a consistent basis. There are a lot of unprofessional actions that take place on the sales floor by Supervisors and AGM. Also, there is not much of a work/life balance. Yearly raises are minuscule at best.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your Sales Associates with more respect. If it were not for us Burberry wouldn’t exist.
