I work 6 and a half hour shifts in the Newcastle store and get half hour break but I work on menswear so it takes 5 mins to get up to the lockers 10 mins to go get dinner and 10 mins to get back leaving only 5 mins to eat and be back on the shop floor. I would much prefer to work a 7 hour shift for a 1 hour break

Not great: if part -time, they spread your shifts accross the entire week with only tiny 4 hour shifts.

If full-time, you're looking at a 9 hour day.

Its all about them, not you! Very bully type management, load of knobs full of themselves. Anything you say/suggest is forgotten in 5 minutes!

For me they were good because I had set times to be in and did not work on a rota. I can't comment for the employees on a rota basis.
