    I have been working at Harry Rosen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have the pleasure of working with this incredible organization. When I joined the Harry Rosen team, my on boarding process was informative and easy to get through. I received amazing training which is always on going. This is a place where you are constantly learning new things and being developed. The management team we have in this organization is great, what amazing leaders and mentors to have.

    Cons

    I cannot comment on any cons for Harry Rosen, as my time here has been exceptional. I believe our management team are doing a great job, and we are always looking for new ways to better ourselves.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I have to management is to continue doing what they have been doing. They are doing a great job, I also love that they are always looking for different areas to improve on and make this a priority.

    I worked at Harry Rosen full-time

    Pros

    Excellent culture and training. On going support at most positions. Many long time employees, 20+ years, speaks to the quality of this firm. Are lower to mid tier payers, have strong benefits package and employee discount. Great customers and a super great learning opportunity in men's wear.

    Cons

    Fairly siloed and hierarchical. Store management can sometimes be a bit negative in their coaching. Seems all the old dogs get the best pickings but a young guy can still do fine.

    Advice to Management

    Get better junior managers in the stor

    Pros

    Great income if you are able to work in a Shark pit! Advisors who have been there longer than 15+ years do very well with their contact lists.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to build a client list to be profitable. If you speak Mandarin you will be covered in $. Management takes all the high end clients but should be managing more.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees more don't make other Advisors do your work for you. New associates should be paid a decent base for several months before total commission after two weeks.

    I worked at Harry Rosen full-time

    Pros

    A lot of good people

    Cons

    There were some older male staff who made very inappropriate comments to the young girls working there. Although upper management was aware of this, they did nothing because those sales people made them a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Store is pretty and a pleasant environment.

    Cons

    Really poor Management. Differing and conflicting management feedback. Lack of training a big problem. Management is selling so they have no incentive to train you as that will infringe on their sales. If one manager doesn't like you for any reason, you're gone. Also, who can work for minimum wage? Outside of holidays and special seasons, you are working for minimum wage. Who can survive on this in a Metropolitan city?

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling and start training. Improve your communication with each other so staff know what is expected of them, then train them as a unit. Your lack of communication is harming people.
