Assistant Store Manager in New Zealand
Easy first job but horrible when wanting to advanceWorked here for multiple years, started great with a great in store culture but as time went on management got worse and communication became minimal from head office and regionals to staff. The turnover rate for staff became a joke and you would be alone in the store for sometimes 8+ hours a day 5 days a week and no one from upper management seemed to care. When trying to get help from regionals you would get ignored for hours and be told to figure it out yourself. When trying to get promoted you wouldnt be considered for internal hire.
Casual Sales Assistant in Wellington
The expectation for casuals to be available 24/7Had only just started and was unable to attend a few shifts because I was sick and had other commitments. However, I still completed a lot of shifts and the manager got quite angry and rude because I was unable to attend every single shift despite being called in last minute. The workplace was very competitive and you get constantly compared to the other workers there. Would not recommend it unless you have 24/7 availability and are unable to get sick.
Positive experience and great career growthPositive experience and great career growth. Could be stressful at times but any sales/KPI based position could be. Felt very supported when needed from higher management.
Senior Sales Assistant in Christchurch, Canterbury
UnorganisedReally unorganised and was thrown into the deep end the day I started. Poor communication between management and staff, work place culture is not the best.
