Knowledgeable and very full on!
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Lincoln, Lincolnshire – 26 April 2018
I worked at H.Samuel as a Christmas temp, I was employed for a total of 3 months. And in those three months I learned so much! Only being 18 I had worked in admin before and it was a whole new world to me. It is very different to your average retailer. You have targets you MUST reach and you have to act a certain way to customers. You have to greet every customer that walks through the door, and you have to be the biggest brown nose (sorry!) in the world, there’s so much you have to learn about jewellery, management was good but the whole thing was very tedious. If you don’t hit targets you will be in trouble, and the targets were impossible to reach! Pay was ok, 7.50 minimum wage. I’d say this job is good for adults because there’s a lot of responsibility and as far as I’m aware part time is a no no!
Occasional 4 hour shift, lovely atmosphere
Difficult customers, jewellery cleaning
