There are plenty of tasks to complete with the friendly staff members. Sometimes fast-paced but can also be quite a relaxing place to work. Friendly team.
Pros
Free 20 minute break

The management was quite poor and needs to be trained on matters regarding HR, People, Culture, ER and Management. But overall the other departments were quite friendly and helpful were needed. But a structure is needed in the HR department.

Ensuring a lot of engagement with all customers at all times, giving them the right styling advice to suit their size shape and occasion.
Team work for key and ensuring all staff were reaching their target.

Visual merchandising was vital, so that customers would view at the right time.

Never had any trouble, the pay was always on time and correct. The bonus was pretty easy to get.

You worked as a team.


A typical day included serving customers, replenishing the shop floor, checking for sizes, sorting out delivery, working on the fitting rooms.


The hardest part of the job was when customers didn't know the return policy as it was an outlet you can't get a refund.

Was a lovely shop to work in, staff were really nice and customers loved help and support. It was a well organised shop and worked good with presentation and stories of their fashion lines.

The hardest part of my job was when we were short staffed and low on stock. The enjoyment of my job was helping customers if they needed help picking a outfit for themselves or wanted advice because they were buying for someone else seeing how happy they are when they leave the shop makes you feel good.

Worst place to work. No progression. Heads of departments/ managers/ directors look down on you if you aren’t on their level in the hierarchy. Avoid for your own mental health

I worked at French Connection in festival place. Good location & good staff.
Wasn't keen on working weekends and late nights which influenced my decision to leave.

From the outside people would assume that such an expensive brand would be a secure and highly paid job, however it is the most toxic place to work for. Absolute minimum wage for all positions and the company treats anyone who doesn't work in head office or management as a worthless slave including the customers. No job security, no sick pay, little to no bonuses, miserable and unhelpful staff and the rudest area managers and owners you'd ever come across. No wonder the business is failing. AVOID

At first you’ll be happy, after a while they don’t treat you well and you don’t have a say. For example, I wanted my holiday for personal reasons but they denied it. They don’t respect you as a person who does most of the work within the store
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Staff, hours
