Brown Thomas is good place for people who arrived and do not speak English so good. But after two months it starts to be very boring and demotivating because you see that you can not progress there. People work for 6 or more years and still they have same salary like in the beginning.

People working there are lovely! Fair hours, minimum wage but some departments do commission/ bonuses when targets are hit, good discounts especially during sales. Management are very encouraging and approachable.

All the areas, from HR to management or sales are well interconnected so you can have direct contact with any of them. Learning the guts of a great company its very useful and suitable for those who want to grow within it. Also they offered good benefits to the employee.

If there's no customer there's nothing you can do. You must keep pushing the sale to get more commissions. an hour lunchtime with no paid plus 30 mins break.

The work day start times vary due to it being a retail store, based on the 3rd floor there is a large range of products to become familiar with from food to kitchen electrical appliances. Confidence is necessary in order to communicate the benefits and uniqueness of each brand to customers with many being tourists who are looking for gifts. Good manners and tactfulness are necessary too as Brown Thomas is an established name and high quality service is expected from the moment a customer walks through the door. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting different customers from all over Ireland and the world and making them feel welcome and looked after and finding the ideal gift or product that suits their needs.

Enjoyable, good perks if fashion oriented. Very hierarchical management system to be expected. It was a short term job for me and I was happy yo have been kept on for 9/10 months

a good working environment, if you interesting in retail job, it is a good company to work for. you will get staff discount, but with the discount a lot of things are still very expensive.

Menswear has a great management team, who are understanding and reasonable. The hours are typical retail hours, apart from the Christmas period when they become very anti-social. As well as a full hour lunch, there is also a 30 minute break and free lunch every Sunday.
Pros
Free Sunday lunch
Cons
Anti-social Christmas hours
