    I have been working at Hugo Boss full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working in a multinational high end brand , constantly changing challenging environment, for those with the right attributes an amazing opportunity to progess and develop particularly abroad. Not for the faint hearted as the title says massive pressure on managers and senior staff to hit targets and and achieve success(we are a business after all) but great perks and opportunities to travel on the company! The pressure dictates that you have a massive work ethic, commitment and the ability to think on your feet, you won't be treated like a child or micro managed if your preforming and competent as some of the other reviews have suggested , this job isn't for everyone hence the massive turn over but for those capable they'll find a supportive and encouring envirmonet that allows then to grow and develop their skills.

    Cons

    Entry level wage is below par, this is supplemented by 1% commission which adds up nicely if your a strong sales person. Be prepared to work, the hours can be long around sale and your work is not always verbally noted but it is noted none the less. Commission is considerably better in English stores due to larger portion or the population being able to afford Boss. Progression in Ireland is harder bit still easy for those with the competencies, there are far fewer spots to move up into, so you really have to shine. Between this and the entry level wage I've given the company 4 stars , if it was based on England I'd have given 5, as the above are not issues there.

    Advice to Management

    Bring entry level wage up to a level that accomadates the Irish eccenomic climate.
