    I worked at Ellis Brigham (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great staff: likeminded group of outdoor enthusiasts who are on the whole very knowledgeable and professional
    - Great as a part time job to fit around studies etc...

    Cons

    - Poorly paid
    - Poorly run at the senior level, even shop managers showed little respect for the owners

    Advice to Management

    - Increase salary according to experience. Loads of great sales staff who have been around for years and give much better service than new people who stick around for a couple of months, but this isn't recocgnised
    - Increase staff discount. This would encourage staff to buy more stuff, and if they've used it then they can sell it speaking from personal experience. If not an increase in discount, maybe some kind of rental scheme where you can borrow gear for trips away

    I worked at Ellis Brigham part-time

    Pros

    Really friendly staff and management! They were easy to approach of you needed any help
    Laid back interview, the management made you feel at ease
    Good amount of hours if you want extra

    Cons

    The only downside I really had was due to the time I applied I was let go within a matter of weeks because the store wasn't as busy as expected but the management was very considerate and told me to apply in the winter and they'd hire me again

    Great people to work with, sharing same passion, great training, get to try some products, work trips ...

    Bad salary. The amount of knowledge you share with a customers apparently seems like nothing to the management.

    Advice to Management

    You should appreciate your staff a little bit more for their knowledge, passion and great customer service.

    Into the company fast, lots of training, nice managers, get to try on all the great outdoor clothing/equipment, meet some cool people going on some cool trips (staff and customers)
