Not a bad company to work for at all, the only thing I think would need work is to screen how many younger people work here - being an older member of staff I found it difficult to get the younger team members to listen to anything at all. Company as a whole are great to work for and good company benefits too. Good prospects to develop yourself within the fashion industry,

a typical day at work at Footasylum is always full of new activities and tasks to do, and I learned a lot about costumer service, standards of the store, and how important is focus on making the store interesting for costumers, dressing mannequins and merchandise the store for the best performances

Just average work place, mostly suitable for young people getting into employment.
They have good discounts for trainer/clothing. Management have good team and we work well together but the environment was a poor environment and payment was not encouraging.
Pros
Employee discount

I was a Security Guard here, through a now defunct security company but all my problems were with the store, not the guarding company. A paranoid customer telephoned the store to say I was following her and she left without buying anything because of me. In reality, the first I knew about this was when the manager lady spoke to me, I had not really followed anyone and had no recollection of the incident. The manager decided to believe the paranoid customer and blamed me for losing them a sale. Then the supervisor who took over after the manager went home throught it was OK that I stay while they tidy up after store closing, without pay and it took a ten minute long argument to get him to unlock the door.

Worked at this company for going on 6 years, this was my first job and I feel like it is a great environment to work in. It has a family feel to the company and you feel supported to move up in the company to higher positions. Hardest part of the job would be peak season such as back to school and especially Christmas as it gets really busy and demanding. However, if everything is organised and everyone works as a team in the store its a breeze.

Very good and fast paced. All staff are helpful and will always give you what you need in order to develop in the real world. I was just there for work experience but it was worth it.

no review to give, i left the job due to poor management but as i am unable to move forward until there has been a review written. A typical day at work would be busy, the management were no help and i dont think they knew how to deal with customers properly.

My management was amazing they were always so helpful with everything and all the staff members got on very well, the most enjoyable part of my day is interacting with all the customers. I cant even begin to say what a typical day was like because it was always different and that's what made it so enjoyable.

The colleagues i was working with were extremely good, i didn't have a toxic working environment but for my first job they pressured us alot.

I would have 5 shoes in my hand then my manger will give me 5 more and the first shoe i ordered wouldn't come or the walkie talkie wont be working.

salary wasn't enough, working hours was not great as they changed drastically every week, management wasn't great, having got people to take in deliveries so when you come to work looking presentable they make you get dirty by carrying the delivery in, they should employ people specifically for that.

In this store, the communication between management and staff is very poor. The rota is also brought out the day before the new week starts which means you can't plan your social life until the very last minute.
Furthermore, the rota is always edited but they will never warm you of shift changes which means you may receive a call half an hour before you're meant to start. Managers are always sat in the office on their mobile phones.
Pros
easy job
Cons
poor management
