Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 15 November 2017
While working at Clarks I did feel like the staff were intimidating and demanding of the temporary staff which made the working environment very uncomfortable.
Also my timetable would constantly get changed before I had a chance to check meaning my hours were constantly muddled up and would result in me having to go home and then come back later in the day quite often.
Trained Fitter (Current Employee) – Metrocentre, Tyne and Wear – 2 November 2017
Working at Clarks can become very intensive and fast paced, especially when working on the Childrens department, during the 'Back to School' period. However this role is extremely rewarding and can be very fun if you are positive about working with members of the public and children.
33% discount, £7.5/hour even for junior sales assistants
very competitive with targets, working with small children

SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 1 October 2017
Worked at Clarks during the back to school period and absolutely loved my time there. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. They provide incredible training for new starts on how to measure feet. Overall great place to work
Sales Assistant Team Member (Former Employee) – Southport – 27 September 2017
All the staff are very friendly. You have to have had previous experience in retail before working here as it is very sales driven. Sometimes you are told to try and sell an extra pair of shoes to customers so you have to have good customer and product knowledge.
This is an ideal job for students as the hours are flexible and generous where you need them to be. You need to be friendly and have good communication skills as most customers value that as part of your service. Clarks send you on a trained fitter course once you start working there, which allows you to pretty much work at any of their branches once you're fully trained. Your work shoes are free and you are required to change them seasonally, which is a great perk.
My only 'con' is that it gets incredibly busy during the back to school period so that can be a daunting time to start your employment with Clarks.
Friendly staff, Fantastic Discount, Ideal for Students
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Merry Hill, West Midlands – 25 September 2017
The job requires so much patience, change of tactics and in general through communication but staff are friendly and happy to help always. I simply started as a stock assistant and now I am a multi skilled individual who can work whatever role is required of me
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Oxfordshire – 24 September 2017
Worst company I have ever worked for the only benefit is free shoes, all management stick together so if one is in the wrong another will back it up. No point in even trying to complain about the lack of or no management.
