Very fun and competitive environment
Working for Harrods Ltd on full time assignments is a great way to get your foot in the door at a business. A lot of the jobs will hire you on full-time if you prove yourself an asset, which then gives you the potential to work your way from the bottom up inside that company.
Strongly recommended company.

Could be better
Management were decent at the beginning but after restructuring the staff around, this caused a little more discomfort and seemed discouraging to staff. Pay is below what you would expect for such a prestigious department store.
Advancement opportunities are slow and do not pay enough, overall a good working experience but cons would be that they do not value you enough to offer better incentives.

unpredictable
Every day was unpredictable, i would learn to drive new and different types of cars, management was ok but can always be better, workplace culture was very diverse, hardest part was not damaging any cars and dealing with awkward customers, best part was getting to drive luxury and sport cars and interacting with different types of people including celebrities.
Pros
discounts, holidays
Cons
shifts work, working on weekends, wages, no promotions, unhealthy environment.

Great place to work for fun/if you don’t need the money
A social and collaborative atmosphere. Can be very clicky and gossipy. Generally not much career growth, unless your very committed to becoming friends with those that will decide your fate.


However
Pros
Salary, hours, late shifts/weekends, always have to be on
Cons
Staff discount/business allowance, if you’re a shopping addict you’ll love it!!!

Felt it was not the best
Felt very uncomfortable working here at one point and when I had tried to make it a point of how it had made me feel I was the one that ended up being made to feel like I made the problem.

not bad
I have worked there only for the Christmas sales period, it was a good experience for me. It may be a bit hard at times as you're supposed to stand on your feet all the time. In the department where I worked, we didn't get commission because we were not allowed to process payments, so permanent employees got that commission.

Good
I have no real complaints. I work a zero hour contract so its good for what I need. But the environment can be intense at times, but I imagine any job can get like this.
