Retail, Customer service (Former Employee) – Blenheim, Marlborough – 2 May 2016
Was a good workplace with good work mates. Was a positive place most of the time and learnt a lot. Wasn't quite my type of job and wenrt able to fit it in around my rowing as we went away through weekends which is we=hen I worked.
Hallensteins was a great company, this was my first job in retail and all of my co-workers were so helpful and lovely. My manager was Lovely and did everything in her power to ensure all of the employees were happy in their roles. Only let downs would be in regard to the head office as they wouldn’t let you take time off sometimes even for family events which is a bit disappointing but what you can expect in retail. Also sales targets were unrealistic and hard to reach, they put a lot of pressure on and at points resulted in conflict among the team. Also they pay really low for the amount of money you bring in for them along with the amount of work you are expected to do.
Other than that a 10/10 company who i would recommend to anyone wanting a job in retail.
