    I worked at Brown Thomas part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good discounts, time and a half on Sundays, Bank holidays, Christmas Eve, St Stephens day and New years day. Also potential to earn great commission on top of decent hourly wage.

    Cons

    A lot of older members of staff like to micromanage new members of staff. Staff can also act competitively against each other to earn a higher commission.
