The opportunity to help customer realise there dream interiors
Amazing workplace, Chance to learn loads of new skills (IE flower arranging) Friendly and supportive management, felt personally cared forGood holiday flexibility Relaxed atmosphere on the most partA fair bit of heavy lifting (no lift ensures that you get your steps in!)
The company were upfront about the length of my temp role, and gave no false illusions. They even gave me another month after this ended, a kindness from them. The atmosphere is quite collaborative, with supervisors resolving issues as they spot them, bucking the stereotypes one assumes of this line of work, though there are one or two walking around. Generous breaks and the chance to work on the Sale (a massive event on the calendar) made it a rather fun assignment. The only downside were the agency who sent us, but OKA more than made up for that unpleasantness.
The company is striving to go forward and elevate however it has little structure in place and plan how to develop. The roles are not very clear and expectations are sky-high. Pressure is placed on management to achieve aims without clear instruction or guidance on how and minimal support - and that is the hardest part of the job. There are many changes in the structure at Head Office level and job security is minimal. The systems/procedures in place are over-dated and in urgent need of update or replacement. The product is great however and there are good professional people within the company to cooperate with.
Not a nice experience. Long hours. No recognition for going the extra mile. Naff salary. Senior managed literallycouldn'tcare less if you're injured or struggling to move the heavy items. Very little in way of lifting aids for warehouse staff and the delivery drivers. As long as the job is done they really don't give a toss about anything that the employees have to say in regards safety.
Condescending management and visual merchandisers talked down to new staff . Made to feel like you had no value and were inferior to them when highly educated . Deliveries ,staff expected to carry stock into shop as the stock came in lorry with drivers employed to just drive. Having worked for other retail companies they need to get many things organised in a different manner , expanded without proper organisation
