Work hard and get nothing.
You get no recognition for your efforts.
Part timers do full time hours and don't get the full time perks. Overall, the warehouse people are the ones that make the company worthwhile. A mix of cultures, hard workers and full of humour.
Did not really like how some of the staff treat you, long hours and sometimes if you work 10 hours you will have to take your break all at once instead of taking two or three breaks throughout the day/evening.
Customer service experience
Random long hours, on call, some staff members are rude.
Cares little about their employees. Is happy to have part-timers managing shifts and other part-timers for the same salary. Used to have a time and a quarter wage on Sundays, but suddenly after years revoked that. Company is extremely unorganised especially in its delegation of tasks. No employee not on salary can expect to get a consistent number of hours because the company hires more staff than hours they have to give, in order to have backup staff, who most of the time only get 3 hours a fortnight. A true example of maximising company profits, minimising employee benefits. The only benefit is the 50% off merchandise discount, limited to 20 items a month for part-timers, however this is not given without some benefit to the company, the discount means that employees will buy the products, putting money in their pockets and wear the clothes to work therefore promoting the brand to customers. The company attempts to promote a series of values to its employees, none of which are actually demonstrated by the brand.
My pay was under minimum wage for the total of three years I worked there. Was made to work for free some nights due to messy store, doing Visual Merchandising and having to clean up till early mornings not getting paid.
5 bad things 1) no respect from the managment - treat you like a child 2) work overtime but giving you like a 10 minute notice 3) threatning you to work - they tell you its part of your contract to do as they say 4) give you hardly no hours 5) never listen to you 3 good things 1) good pay / benefits 2)zitch 3)zitch only 1 good part of the job. they teach you the basics of retail but never take you to the next step.
