Driving tailored goods in central London
The commuting was a struggle. Working Saturdays seemed unnecessary and meant I was below minimum wage. I had to work bank holidays. The work was easy with plenty of down time. The staff at the tailors in Battersea and at Burberry in Bond street with very good. But I was not paid at the end of the month by whoever the subcontractor was. I did not go in one day the next week in response and was sacked by email. I was left overdrawn and maxed out on my credit card, no food, and no one to turn to. I managed to increase my credit card limit and emigrated to Ireland overnight in disgust with the state of England. The sub contractor went bust and sent me a massive document to claim the £1800 owed through their liquidation process. I had no expectation of recovering the money and needed it immediately so did not bother. The payment issues were probably nothing to do with Burberry, but I was of being robbed and bullied in England. Nice clothes, shoes and bags and the staff were fabulous though.

Has to be the worst place ive ever worked. Bullying culture and heavy handed management. So many promises made and never fulfilled. Would never recommend them to anyone

Burberry, blyth
Absolutely awful place to work full of idiots and people off their faces on coke, unfair towards temps and its all about who you know not what you know, have to be an a*** licker to get anywhere, they get rid of hard workers and keep those who they class as drinking buddys, place is like a school and those who work there permanently don't deserve to be there as they leave all the work for the temps to do

Not recommended
I didn’t like to work for this company. My first manager didn’t have any idea about a manager is. The second manager was amazing but when she left I had another manager who useless.
Most of the people were fake. No really a nice place where to work with. I don’t recommend.

The management in BBS Leeds is poorly, no management skills completely unaware of what you are doing on daily basis.
Their style is very aggressive trying to cover their lack of management skills .

I do not reccomend RTR dept, the finance area with the highest people turnover .

Instead to motivate their resources are happy to pay fortune in external


consultants when people leave.

Great team and benefits, management needs reassessing.
The culture at Burberry was very relaxed and inclusive, however, the salaries did not reflect the work output from employees. Attrition was very high which made the working environment uneasy.

Free lunches once a month and great sample sales & benefits.
Pros
Sample sales, package - pension, Summer Fridays
Cons
Lack of progression, poor management styles

Toxic atmosphere / abusive managers
Everything was perfect before hitting the floor. Training is lengthy but excellent and the company is very organised (however, they over complicate ever procedure which is maddening). I’ve worked in luxury retail for years and the Burberry sales floor is the most toxic environment I’ve ever encountered. They talked a great deal about mental health during my induction which I thought was amazing. I found out immediately they did that because they know the pressure they put on sales staff and the resulting stress is insane and hugely disproportionate for a junior sales role. The pay is very competitive but it’s at a price. The store managers were lovely but the department managers talk to their staff in the most appalling way. As a point of fact, the top 5 rudest people I encountered in my life were Burberry managers. Being nasty is the default mode of communication to your junior which I wasn’t used to. Would not recommend, especially if you have mental health issues. It’s toxic and 80% of staff are miserable

Productive and Collaborative
Every member works together as team, my time in Burberry I never felt secluded as I felt everybody was a family. The rewards and benefits are also good.

Production fast paced
Working in a factory with a fast paced production line a certain of targets have to be met were your monitored daily and dont know if your going to be in work the following day because of the lack of work that comes in. I was told there was 13 weeks work I was there for about 3 and laid off because the products were all shipped out.

Fashion Focus
Very customer focused and very luxury working life.
Difficult to manage some teams

Difficult to manage customer facing and customer contacting together in the days.

Shift work was very difficult but had its benefits.

Loved my team.

Great team, optimistic, fun, sociable
Areas definitely needed improvement. But on the whole, a fairly paid Job with lots of benefits and opportunities. Opinions could occasionally get lost in the ether, so it is best to make fewer more relevant points with regards to feedback, and always try to stay optimistic and realistic.

Rewarding but frantic
A great place to work in the heart of London with glamour, luxury and creativity at the centre of all you do. Leadership tend to sit in ivory towers and can be very frustrating with the drip feeding of communication to the ranks but it is accepted.
