Nice place and staff, over emphasis on sales.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 24 April 2017
The shift would start 10 minutes before it scheduled to in order to be given your shift sales target and how you were going to do that. Shop floor only busy during sale periods, so a lot of shop floor cleanliness, stock room tidiness. When part time, 4 hour shifts were allocated, for example 3-7pm which in reality was 2:50-7:45. This is because after the shop had closed, general cleaning of the shop floor had to be completed then a shift review with your sales, multi sales, positive and negative things about your shift had to be signed by the manager on duty. If you do not like highly pressurized environments with lots of importance on amount of sales you do then this job is not worth the money you are paid. However, this job is mentally rewarding when sales are hit but no commision or bonuses so hard to stay motivated when on minimum wage.
Good location. Nice staff.
Highly pressurized sales culture.minimum wage. no bonuses.
