Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Bicester Village – 13 November 2017
A typical day at work consists of tidying up and serving customers. Till work, product knowledge and communication skills are mostly the best experience gained. Management are considerate but can also change and therefore provide less of a good experience at work. Very sociable place to work at, but hours can be long and tedious especially when it is busy.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Dorset – 13 October 2017
Everything from the people to atmosphere, decent pay and good vibe all around. Uniform allowance is decent, management is pretty good, holiday can be hard to get off but I hear in different shops its more laid back.
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) – Bromley, Greater London – 30 August 2017
Bully management style with extremely poor organisation from head office. I was told my position was no longer required after 2 years employment because I wouldn't fraudulently create HR documents to allow other staff members to be fired.
expected to work for free after being verbully abused by seniors
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 10 August 2017
SuperGroup was a fun environment for a person to work. That being said however, the lack of advancement opportunities Killed the drive I had to work there. It bred a friendly atmosphere and the ability to gain friendships. There was a lack of training to help further a career, which would often see the staff remain in a stagnant case of going nowhere.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Windsor, Berkshire – 20 July 2017
I worked for Supergroup for just under 4 years and progressed from part time sales assistant to Supervisor in just over 1 year. They train you and give you any possible opportunity. The company's ethics and views are unlike any other company I've seen. They reward their staff well and will support you no matter what. I found the hardest part of my job was working far away from home and having to travel. If it was not for this, I would have more than likely stayed with them. Because of them, when I left, I did not want to go to another retail company as I did not feel like I would find another company like them.
SuperDry comes with great corporation benefits. Such as, great clothing allowance and good salary and holiday allowance. But management is terrible and nonetheless bias. I was dismissed on what I would consider bias grounds and they failed to reimburse me on my sustained holiday pay.
I think this may be subjective to the Milton Keynes branch. The corporation in general is well-organised, a good mix of work / social activities and a very generous clothing allowance. However, the management in Milton Keynes and the types of individuals nonetheless correspond with lazy, unenthusiastic and bias attributes, ruining the experience I sustained there.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Canterbury, Kent – 26 June 2017
I have worked at two different stores and both have always encouraged me to be myself and be original. A typical day in the workplace is assisting customers, maintaining standards and indulging yourself into the brand and new trends. Management have always been friendly and reliable with shift swifts and holiday requests. They will always try their hardest to please everyone, no matter how long or new you are to the company. The hardest part of the job is during Christmas when customers are at their peak and the company are at their busiest. The company always try to make the holiday season fun by have daily Christmas related tasks (which include prizes) and incentives for the stores as a whole. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get two uniform allowances per year (spring and summer) and (autumn and winter). The amount of allowance you get is dependent on how many hours you work, but who cares, it's free clothes! You get 50% off clothes all year round and lunch breaks are always decent but unpaid, which is fair enough.
Uniform allowance, 50% off clothes all year round, no constant pressure to beat targets
Random shift changes at times without notice, shifts can seem long and boring
very enjoyable work environment and fun job culture
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Regent street – 20 June 2017
An environment that allows you to flourish through your natural abilities, also enabling you to be challenged at the same time. Overall, a fun and enjoyable brand that celebrates individuality at its core.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Manchester – 15 June 2017
great staff and management, always room for gaining more skills and having advances such as rewards for doing well. Work feels fun and less like a chore, and meeting new people every day in work is also great fun.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Belfast, County Antrim – 31 May 2017
Typical day would be 10hrs long with 1hr lunch break. First day is tutorial and talk about the company, their payment scheme and how to progress to higher positions. Management is alright, the manager I saw was quite pleasant. Cannot comment on the workplace culture. Hardest part of the job is convincing potential customers, most enjoyable are the coworkers, as the atmosphere is always pretty laid back
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 23 May 2017
If you weren't allocated shifts on the weekend, then be prepared to have a slow day at work, consistently facing up and replenishing stock. However the staff were very friendly and fun working colleagues.
There are many benefits for working with Supergroup, including discounts and uniform allowance. Everyone is really friendly and ready to help out other team members. Management make you feel like you can turn to them if need be, and try to ensure everyone is happy.
