I've worked at strandbags for over a year and it is the worst company I have ever worked for. The work itself is fine but the company treats the stuff terribly. as a sales assistant, you have a sales target for the day, week, month and year. if you make that target you get nothing but if you are not maligning targets they threaten to cut your hours. You are not paid overtime if you have to work past the closing time for any reason. you have to arrive a minimum of 15 mins before opening to prefer the store but you are not paid for that time. You must also work alone for 4 or more hours in which you get no 15 min break and you can not go to the bathroom. You have a 40% stuff discount on full price items but no one ever uses it because strandbags often has 40% off sales.
Low pay, no benefits, unhealthy competitive culture, not given appropriate breaks.
