Good management and team staff. Good allowance to spend in the shop and wear at work plus good staff discounts. Nice environment to work and good commissions. The most enjoyable part of the job is building relationship with clients .

I worked here part time whilst at university. The people I worked with were lovely, management was so friendly and treated you like a human being not just an employee. You get so much for your work uniform and major discounts so my wardrobe is full. I cannot recommend Paul Smith as a job enough! I have learnt so much and if my parents weren’t forcing me to get a full time job then I’d be staying here.
Pros
Uniform allowance, great management
Cons
Had to leave

After a decade at Paul Smith, I left with the impression that the company was in decline. Bureaucracy had increased tenfold and perks were being pulled one by one. A number of my colleagues had left citing similar concerns.

Working here was fun because the clients who shop he come from a music or art background so for me there was a lot of interest in common so it was easy to talk to clients and focus on CRM.
I mainly focused on the formal wear however because this store sold a lot of interiors i would be involved in those sales.

The visual merchandising of the store was always very fun and contemporary which added a really great vibe to the store.

Retail. Who would want to work in retail. I would wake up every single day wishing I hadn't when I worked here. It was constant complaining, digs, bad work, it was awful
Pros
Free uniform and good discount.
Cons
Mind numbing
