Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Bournemouth – 19 June 2018
Terrible management, would be called into shift last minute and then sent home as was not needed. Management hardly ever in store. Working environment uncomfortable, negative culture. Not paid for hours worked.
great staff always offering opportunities to grow. a typical day at work would be clocking in and then finding your team leader who will give you a run down of what's going on and where you slot in for the day
Busy, Enjoyable place to work with friendly staff.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Solihull – 15 September 2017
A typical day at the company, for me during the busy "back to school" period, would include helping and guided customers by fitting shoes for children and young people. From this experience, I learnt the importance of communication skills with the customer and the whole team and also learnt how to manage my time during shifts in order to ensure I was being productive. Everyone in the company were very welcoming and helped me understand what the job role "trained fitter" entailed. The job was a very enjoyable experience and I really enjoyed my period of work for the company.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Rotherham, South Yorkshire – 15 September 2017
i only worked here for a few weeks as i was on a placement but it was a really enjoyable experience the staff were easy to get along with any problems all you have to do is ask and they would help with any issues
In a typical day I help customers in any way I can by measuring and fitting children's shoes. I have also learnt lots of product knowledge so help customers make an informed decision. The hardest part of the job is dealing with awkward customers (as like any job in retail.)
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – N. Ireland – 13 June 2017
Worst employment ever. It says somehtin I feel when the customers present as less troublesome than the management. A bullying culture cloaked the entire shop and previous manager was too intimidated to act on it.
Customers were largely nice though.
Very belittling job, have to get tha manger to sign you KPI every day was embarrassing and humilliating, was like being back in primary school.

Sales Adviser (Former Employee) – Crawley, ENG – 5 March 2015
At Clarks a typical day would be to start my shift by being told by management which department I would be working in for the day. once told I start meeting and greeting customers straight away and asking if any of them needs any help. Seeing the sale through right to the end is one of the key points I really enjoy about this job. Making sure my customers are satisfied with the service I have offered them always makes me strive to do even better than before. The management are very organised and are easy to get along with, I felt that if I ever did have a problem then I would of been at ease to discuss with any one of the managers. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that all the store employees feel like a close knit family and are able to get along with one another.
Clarks was the Sale Advisor and 'Trained fitter (Former Employee) – hertfordshire – 12 September 2014
good place to work albeit a little bit stressful during the 'back to school period'. management at times lack the insight to allocate more workers to particular sections when it was at its busiest. because of this, we were constantly getting out of work late.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Longwell Green, ENG – 11 February 2014
I worked in Clarks in Longwell Green. My responsibilities were being a sales assistant, duties included cash handling, fitting children's shoes correctly( I was on the children's department). Whilst I was there I completed an Clarks fitting service training course. I really enjoyed communicating with the customers and their children. I have learnt how to communicate with various age groups which helps me carry out a good customer service.
A typical day at work involves socialising with people from all walks of life. Often helping families find their baby's first shoes and helping them to gain knowledge about growing feet. I have been professionally trained to fit children's and adults' shoes.
Within this job I have learned how to build a positive rapport with customers in a very short space of time. I've also learnt how to engage with children and adults in order to discover their requirements and satisfy both parents and children.
I have worked in Clarks for five year and get on incredibly well with each member of staff I work with. Team work is very important to me, I feel I click well as a member of the team.
The management in my store have been working in partnership for around twenty years. The manager and assistant manager know each other very well and work well together, while providing a positive atmosphere for workers and customers.
The hardest part of my job is during the back to school season within the summer holidays. Within this period it is essential to meet all criteria while being under pressure to serve large numbers of customers in a small amount of time.
The part about my job I enjoy most is helping families to find their baby's first shoes. This is a once in a lifetime experience, which I feel privileged to be a part of.
