    Advice to Management

    It’s interesting to read some of the reviews by sales associates. It is very simple to be a success at Burberry. Do your job, trust in your leaders and take accountability for your actions. So many times, I have witnessed associates make mistakes and get so upset because they are held accountable. That is a leaders job, to manage people and the business. Burberry is a place you can make mistakes, as long as you learn from them and don’t let a write up hold you back. Move forward and learn from the mistake. If you can’t take development and direction, Burberry is not for you.

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive pay

    Cons

    Terrible management, horrible environment to work in it felt like high school. Constant cycling of team members because no one is willing to stick around in that mess of a store. Very strict rules that seem to only apply to certain employees.

    Your management team in your Orlando fl outlet store is an absolute disaster
