Great Company, just long hours
Trainee Manager (Current Employee) – London – 18 June 2018
Working in management at Schuh, especially in London, has its pros and cons. Pros being the salary is good for most retail companies, and the people you work with are usually amazing, I have very little to complain about in terms of my colleagues. Another pro is the level of training you get from Schuh is second to none, it's amazing and well thought out whilst being a leader in the retail sector in providing exceptional levels of customer service. Holiday benefits are good too, although I don't agree that you don't get paid any extra in working a bank holiday or time in lieu.
Cons, for me especially, is working till 11 pm in Central London - absolutely absurd hours whilst staying open till 9 pm on a Sunday - travel into London on a Sunday is a nightmare as it is. Getting paid 37.5h a week, when in reality you're working 40h and not getting recompensated for this is rather frustrating, that 0.5h a week would go a long way in our pay packets.
Wages, Good work culture, holiday package.
Long hours in london, no extra pay on bank holidays, sunday hours.
