Great Workplace with some downsides.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Tilton, NH – May 23, 2018
Brooks Brothers is a wonderful company and I have enjoyed working there. I would recommend it as a great starter job for a college student or a retirement job for older people.
I have gained valuable experience in retail work, customer service, and sales during my time there.
The product is high-quality and excellent in style, although sometimes over priced. The promotions are generally pretty good.
The workplace culture is (for the most part) great - the supervisors are amazing and my coworkers are now my friends.
However, while the supervisors are hard-working and dependable, there is sometimes lackluster management and often a lack of responsibility among the higher-ups.
Customers are 50/50. They can be either wonderful people with whom it is a real joy to work, or entitled rich people who treat you like dirt.
Hours are hard. You have to work late nights or short shifts (4-5 hours). The schedule is flexible, making it easier to get time off, but there is not much consistency in the hours worked from one week to the next.
In all, great place to work for a summer or temporary job. Greatest part of it is amazing coworkers and a great environment.
scheduling, breaks, great coworkers, good enviroment
Low pay, no career advancement, no bonuses/incentives
