Great start for a career in sales
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – September 6, 2018
Brooks Brothers sales associate position is great for those who wish to get a head start in the luxury market. As America's oldest and continuous standing retailer, the brand has cemented its image into American prep and business culture. They will prepare you to deal with clientele that maintain higher standards, and how to sell to them. They will also show you how build sales from the smallest of items, such as a pair of socks, into a much bigger sale. Career advancement is not the easiest, as they are big on promoting from the outside rather than within. I worked for hourly pay only, non commission, with a bonus paid monthly if the store hit its target goal. The bonus was split among associates with higher percentages going to those who work more hours.
Discount is unbeatable, on some great product nonetheless
Advancement is very difficult, bonus system is a little unfair
