    I have been working at Oroton part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The relationships built with coworkers are often close and long-lasting. The company has done a good job of inspiring regional/cluster managers. The staff discount is good, which is normally 50% off and 60% off for limited times. The company has recently become more trusting of your judgement for decisions such as extending time for returns and transferring stock between stores. The new Creative Director,...

    Cons

    Minimum wage, no cash bonus. The company only pays for the hours that the store is open, meaning time taken to open and close are not paid. They are also reluctant to pay overtime even if the extra hours you worked were necessary, sometimes only paying half of the overtime or not at all. All managers have mentioned that their salary is very low in comparison to other similar companies. The incentive is unrewarding,...

    Advice to Management

    Staff incentive should be increased and in the form of a cash bonus. Individual staff performance should be included in the incentive. Sometimes there are "fun" activities to encourage sales performance such as a leather care selling competition. However, these kind of activities shouldn't detract away from the recognition of more significant KPIs like productivity.

    Pros

    Lovely coworkers Supportive upper management Head office are passionate about the brand and heritage Great learning and training system Positive and genuine company culture

    Pros

    - They spare no expense for meetings (food mainly). - Luxury brands means better pay. - 50% discount on all bags except limited edition.

    Cons

    - Regular meetings (all the darn time). - Emails every hour that are full of fake motivational crap, data, and actions that would require quick responses regardless of if you were busy. - The bags aren’t high quality so the return rate is HIGH. - Training for staff needs to be done/updated/monitored using three different sheets that require both the person getting trained and yourself to help fill in, these need to...

    Advice to Management

    If you have a high staff turnover, look up the hierarchy, not down. Every single person I’ve spoken to currently employed with your company, not one has actually enjoyed it.
