Worked here for 8 months after my travels abroad. It was okay to begin with, but I soon realised that any hard work you put in wasn't given back.
I was offered a supervisor role after my 3 month probation period, but it was only for 20hrs a week and the pay rise was only 30p extra an hour from £7.50.
So I really didn't see the point or responsibility in it.
For an outdoor retailer that has branches all across the country and abroad it doesn't add up that they can't pay any hard working staff commission or any kind of bonus scheme. No matter how many rucksacks, boots, jackets you sell you won't be given anything extra. The most you'll be given is ONE set of free uniform when you arrive and 50% Staff Discount, but that's literally it. Half of the gear in the store is of poor quality and doesn't last very long either.
Part of me wishes I hadn't worked here for this long, but sometimes finding new work can be difficult, especially in certain areas of the country. Unless you are desperate or a student looking for casual hours then this might do, but otherwise I would strongly advise looking further a field.
Head office needs a rethink!
Minium wages, no commission, no real career progression
