      Pros

      Face paced, lots of responsibility and opportunities to solve problems

      Cons

      No support and no rewards or positive feedback for a job well done. Loved my team but the managers are the problem. I was regularly left alone for a whole day to run four departments whilst the managers sat in their office doing paperwork and training. Managers barely did anything when they were on the floor and didn't know what they were doing. When I left I got no words of thanks or anything like that even though I worked there almost five years. Very stressful. Is more about who you are friends with then how well you can do the job when it gets to management levels. If you are committed to your job and a hard worker they will take advantage of you. So many staff in my store took time off with mental health issues due to the stress of the job and the lack of appreciation from managers.

      Standard retail job

      Jan 19, 2022 - Sales Assistant

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Standard retail job, very accessible tills - great staff room - 10% staff discount during selected times - always available overtime - good pay - nice team - senior management were always approachable and friendly

      Cons

      - you are treated like a number, some of the department managers really made me feel replaceable - overtime is expected, so you are usually pressured into more, which isnt pleasant. I shouldnt have to have an excuse other than i dont want to - mind numbing work, even if it is standard retail -a little unfulfilling, as the place is constantly messy you find it hard to leave and not be stressed after your efforts of trying to tidy
