    Pros

    Good discount, great products that last and look great, good people that treat others with respect. Well trained staff at stores.

    Cons

    Small company with few opportunities for upward mobility. Technology somewhat antiquated. Little stale on fashion side. Need more locations throughout USA.

    I worked at Jaeger part-time

    Pros

    Company offers employees a great discount on clothes. They really know how to respect the customer with great customer service.

    Cons

    Can be stodgy in the styling. The prices are high and when they expect you to were a current season of clothes, it is hard to afford, even with the discount.

    I worked at Jaeger (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close to home,good team, good discount.

    Cons

    No thanks for hard work. Long opening hours. Really bad money for a premium brand, you earn more in a supermarket.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending on things that don't matter! Product and people need investment. Jaeger is an old fashioned, overpriced store.

    Pros

    Great people, lovely customers, many long lasting relationships formed. Good products on the whole. Good working conditions most of the time.

    Cons

    Lack of direction. Tried to make too many changes and ended up making bad management decisions. Salary ceased to become competitive and strong employees left.

    Listen to your teams

    I worked at Jaeger full-time

    Pros

    Established company with a great history. Lifestyle brand and quality clothes.

    Constant change of CEO and to many changes with the branding. They have lost there identity.

    I worked at Jaeger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    looking back I honestly can't think of any. Just an out-of-touch company on a downward spiral full of empty promises.

    Cons

    People - pushy, arrogant and condescending towards part-time workers like myself.

    Brand - has had it's day now and is trying desperately to cling onto the reputation it once had. Really can't see it being around for much longer.

    Pay - was told there would be commission in the interview but this was not mentioned once after that and turned out to be false.

    HR - extremely unprofessional. When I quit I wrote a lengthy email to the HR department stating how I felt bullied by the store manager which is what lead me to quit. I also told them that other members of staff have complained about the same person and they should look into the matter. HR didn't even have the decency to acknowledge my complaint, they instead replied 'We have sent you a letter in the post - regards...' I opened the letter to find out they had dismissed me (2 days after I notified my manager I was leaving) due to 'failings in my attitude.'

    I foolishly ignored the poor reviews on here before I joined Jaeger and my advice to you would be to read them and avoid this company at all costs.

    I've never had the misfortune of being bullied until my time at Jaeger and the fact they didn't even have the decency to reply to a matter of that magnitude speaks volumes about the way they treat their staff.

    Advice to Management

    treat your staff with some respect instead of tormenting and bullying them until they quit.
