Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – March 17, 2017
Working with Hugo Boss is not the typical retail experience. As the clothing, the entire company is held with the utmost quality and service to both the customers and employees. The wages are constructed with a set rate of 10/hr with commission. During the holiday rush and summer hype business with busy and profitable. However during the slow seasons, which is unfortunately the majority of the year, if you are relying on the commission, not much money will be coming into your wallet.
Aside from that, the company is very accommodating, health conscious, and very specific and efficient in the training process.

My work for HUGO BOSS was very nice.The management can make work productive without stressful situations. The time was friendly and supporting in everything. I had an opportunity to work with double face fabric and use different kind of sewing equipment.

The Hugo Boss brand culture is amazing, I definitely agreed with many of the core values that the brand portrays. During my time at Hugo Boss, it had some ups but a lot of downs. For management you are pressured to meet last minute deadlines and there is inconsistency with communication. I'm sure it depends on your Store Manager, but mine had an interesting way of handling things, and not interesting in a good way. My store manager hired my assistant, and she was terrible. I voiced my concerns and he pretended to 'listen' but for some miracle she still kept her job even though she was late every single day, and for some reason couldn't handle herself professionally. The pay for the assistant store manager was very poor (13.50$) and 'commission based' as well, but that's ridiculous because upper management didn't want you to be selling if you were a manager.
Paid time off/sick days/employee discount is 60%off

This position has good benefits and was flexible with scheduling. It provided a uniform allowance many years ago in order to provide live marketing to customers. Unfortunately, now it is a standard uniform for all employees.

I really liked working for a big company like Hugo Boss not only I learned a lot but I got to work at a place where I wanted. Fashion is my statement and everyone at the management treats you like family.

It was a good place just don't go through the temp agency because they lay you off for 2 or 3 weeks then call you back that is so aggravating because if you're going to work someone temp at least do it for a month or so straight not start them one week and lay them off the next

Perfect place if you like Fashion!!!! Getting to meet lot's of interesting people and help them to change their style image. Management is not bad, it depence of the manager in charge. Overall the company culture is great, always stand by employees rights.
I work as a sales associate for Hugo Boss in an outlet mall. Currently however, I do not find the job as enjoyable as it could be due to certain management level employee's playing favoritism and being hypocritical. The job is a great experience if you like helping people as I enjoy not only being able to provide service to people, but also helping people through intimate times of their life: such as when someone comes in to buy a suit for a wedding, It is one of the most flattering and endearing experiences I have had while working in retail and is something that will stick with me for the rest of my life. Management where I am currently located has ethical issues with discrimination against employees and also being stuck up as in having an attitude of "I'm better than you" without showing it directly. The co-workers can sometimes be competitive as it is a commission based atmosphere, but over all the experience is great and once you build a clientele who come to see you personally, the tension eases up a little. I would most definitely recommend the job if you enjoy helping people and being a part of other people's lives, but do not stick around too long unless you plan on moving up quickly which can involve some brown nosing and late shifts.
Typical day at Hugo Boss clock in at 6:30 am. Get to your zone sign in on your gun. Clear your zone and go to another zone. 8:15 -8:30 break. 11-11:30 lunch. 1:15-1:30. 3:00 we are off unless it's mandatory overtime. Which next break will be 3:15-3:30 and off at 5 pm. I've learned that team work can get a job done. We need more communication within management. Co-workers for the most part work very hard. the hardest part is when employees are not trained properly. The most enjoyable part of the job is putting a smile on someone face when they are having a bad day.
