Silver Service Waitressing (Former Employee) – Leeds – 20 May 2018
It was very disappointing coming from a place of experience. I was made to start from the bottom lowest servicing waitress, with little perks and unfriendly hours. I quickly learned it wasn't a friendly place, very mean and nasty however i kept my head down and learnt quickly to just do my time and left without a fuss!
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 16 May 2018
Harvey Nichols is a great place to work people and staff are great Only down side is the security manager who treats staff poorly doesn’t listen to advice and works by his own rules and ruins staff moral
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 8 April 2018
Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh used to be amazing. Sadly it’s nothing conspired to what it was. Customers are leaving to shop else where. Managers are patronising and generally weak. A regular customer who has spend thousands in this shop recently parted company because a manager refused to issue a refund on a faulty product...totally pointless and there have no doubt been others.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 23 March 2018
Whilst working at Harvey Nichols, we would start the day off with a team brief, followed by cleaning our concessions and making sure everything on our concession was stocked up (in my case, sunglasses). Throughout the day my jobs included replenishment on my department if any stock was sold, assisting customers with Christmas gifts and also personal shopping. Breaks were 1 hour long and security was excellent.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Knightsbridge, Greater London – 17 November 2017
ok to work for but life balance and social life wasnt very good as management was quite poor. Hardest part of the job is knowing what to do as the commincation between staff and management wasnt very good
Waiter (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 12 November 2017
Company provides contracted hours and good income. Learned more about food and wines in depth. Managed well at most part. Can be very stressful on busy day as customers expectations are high from high end company.
Development Analyst (Current Employee) – Chiswick, Greater London – 27 August 2017
After a lot of thrilling new project with the new CEO, currently HN is experiencing a slow down phase, where the priority is on the stabilisation and maintenance of all what has been delivered in the past 3 years.
Stylist (Current Employee) – Knightsbridge London – 3 July 2017
Harvey Nichols provides great benefits i.e monthly Oyster card. I learned how to manage a VIP client list and how to deal with different types of customers, including online customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is the clientele and managing social media/photo shooting.
BRAND CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – London – 26 June 2017
I would make sure the shop floor was tidy and check stocks. Sometimes i would have to rearrange the shop floor. The management were nice. The hardest part of the job was when customers would come in and i didn't have what they needed, they would get angry and frustrated, however i always gave them an alternative, if they didn't like the alternative i would call the flagship store to see if they had what they were looking for in stock.
