      Great Benefits

      Pros

      The company has great pay and good benefits. Sometimes you also may make a bonus if you are a department manager and your department makes its monthly goal. The company is very big on promoting within. You get paid vacation days and sick days.

      Cons

      All the locations are always typically under staffed which leads to working long hours. The job is physically and mentally draining. There is no work/ life balance here, Burberry is your life. We also have secret shoppers who demand a lot of information which is difficult to give to many typical shoppers. If you don't get over an 85, you fail and get written up. You also must contact clients and clientele constantly. The job is very stressful.

      Pros

      Good amount of paid time off, good training, no dress code, free food

      Cons

      Long hours, overwhelming number of calls and emails, system crashed all the time making very hard to keep up with the demand, many programs needed to accomplish the job barely worked, micro management and some rude wannabe managers. Overall they ask for way too much compared with what they pay you.

      Pros

      Discount, insurance, pay is decent and commission okay. You learn a lot about merchandizing because you basically have to do everything.

      Cons

      Management looks the other way when it comes to employees working long hours with no breaks. Constantly understaffed. All the tools needed at work need to be fixed. No training of new hire.
