STYLIST (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2017
At the most part I enjoy working at TED BAKER (LONDON). A typical day just requires keeping the floor neat & assisting customers while clientele. The hardest part working here is just dealing with management due to the fact that they are demanding but you learn to deal with it, but most of the time i enjoy it working here is because of my co workers we are basically a family majority of times.
Former sales associate (Former Employee) – Central Valley, NY – June 1, 2017
Management has no clue how to run the store or properly manage staff. Everyone is more concerned with gossip than working as a team. After working with your own customer, assisting them with sizes, and setting up a fitting room for them, management forces you to give your sale to someone else just because you made your goal for the day and the other person didn't. REALLY!! Everyone should be responsible for their own goals!!!
The employee discount
Terrible work environment, less than competent management and unfair/ unethical practices
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Central Valley, NY – April 3, 2017
Ted Baker has a great outlook on today’s business. Positive work place, creative and fun environment. Quality product and fashion forward design. Detailed orientated. Good compensation and bonus structure. Upper Management was difficult to work with.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – January 14, 2017
I really like working here. They make every effort to work around my schedule. There's always a lot to do, so I'm never bored. They really encourage clienteling, instead of just pushing stuff on people. It's more about a team effort than everyone being out for themselves. The discount is really awesome- just wish I could spend more. Everyone is really helpful. I like coming to work. You definitely get out what you put in. They really try to promote from within, instead of going outside when there are plenty of good people trying to get promoted. Lots of higher ups have been promoted from stores.
clothing discount, managers/team
Sometimes the customers get upset about the 2 week return policy
I worked at a Ted Baker leased mat within a Bloomingdale's for approx several months. Although I've heard that the experience is more impactful working at a Ted Baker standalone store, I had a overall good experience working at Ted within Bloomingdale's.
I was treated fairly and with respect by management at Ted. It can be tricky to navigate the rules and standards of both Ted and Bloomingdale's at the same.
I did see opportunity for growth within the company, but could not devote the amount of time needed to do so.
I was concerned about job security within Bloomingdale's as business appears to be bad.
I would have probably preferred working in standalone store, and would recommend doing so over a leased space.
Opportunities for growth, nice coworkers
Minimal perks, non competitive pay, Bloomingdale's dress code
Floor Manager (Current Employee) – Glendale, CA – September 15, 2016
Good company to work for if you like sales. They definitely like to have fun and they treat their full-time employees great! Sales all in all can be a tough gig to work, but if you actually like people, you will enjoy this brand. The product is actually quality product and management practices what the brand mission preaches. The only reason I left my full-time position was to go back to school and work a little bit less. I don't like sales enough because I am more introverted, and I cannot invest that much time and energy while also giving time and energy to further my education.
quality product, quirky and fun environment, respectful associates/managers
low to moderate work/life balance, lots of energy to invest, MUST like people
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 29, 2016
I love the product. There is nothing more exciting about wearing and selling Ted Baker Product all customers love it and will pay the price for quality product. Corporate and Management are so focused on the tasking vs selling. They also tend to say hold their employees to unrealistic goals and standards.
Great discount and awesome pay and Health coverage is amazing
Horrible Upper Managerment, not a selling culture, horrible operations, doesn't know how to hold people accountable
Men's Store Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 21, 2016
I love the product! But I feel like they are too operationally focused. I am a manager that thrives on a selling culture. I tend to get frustrated in a culture where filling out forms and submitting reports are more important than being on the selling floor and running your business.
Shop Manager (Current Employee) – Chestnuthill – May 17, 2014
This brand has an amazing company culture. Everyone that works in Ted Baker is very passionate and supportive. Anyone can gain a lot of management and business experience just by working in a store. Ted Baker encourages there teams to "own there business" so you get hands on training about buying, merchandizing, visuals ect. It definitely takes the right type of outgoing and motivated person to enjoy this company. But if you are the right fit, you will love it!
Shop Manager (Current Employee) – Roosevelt, NY – March 18, 2013
A typical day involves reviewing our business plan and the sales analysis report, to strategize how we will increase sales from last year. I hold touch bases with each associate about their action plans and development. Clienteling drives our business, coaching and training each associate on becoming a clientele specialist. Merchandise moves, visual changes, product seminars, etc. The hardest part of my job is staying on top of time management, due to having a very small team. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new clients, fashion shows, and the wonderful team I work with.
