fun place to work with no pressure if you work for the own bought team: good salary and commission scheme;
opportunity to progress if you are patience, resilient and a can do attitude;
management could be better;
process and procedures are inconsistent and unclear;
I was promised a continuation of my contract after the season ended and on my last shift the managers told me that there were no available positions on their team and I would not be working for them anymore.
a typical day at work Arrange orders and deliveries of stock for customers focus on preparing packages for shipment / process orders for packing Greeting customers in a timely fashion while quickly determining their needs.
management treat you badly like you are nothing to them
managers don't care about work/life balance and expect you to put the company above all else, even if you're a part time worker. can't be sick more than twice within 3 months or you hit an absence trigger which can lead to you being punished or fired. great people to work with but it is still very competitive due to the commission scheme, people will try and steal your sales for their own gain. great benefits and incentives such as the 35% discount which goes down to 50% on most brands on certain days such as black Friday. good place to work if you have no other commitments such as school or a social life. long hours with nowhere to sit too..
Typical day invloves a quiet start but easy to get into the flow of things. Ive learnt how to be in a bigger space working alongside colleagues from different backgrounds. Very enjoyable space with lots going on in store.
It’s not a great place to work but it’s ok. They expect a lot from you but don’t ever expect a thank you for your hard work. It is what it is, it’s a job and it gets the bills paid... just about anyway.
Selfridges is an incredibly wonderful store to work in. You meet a very wide range of people from slot of different cultures which enriches you as a person. The working environment has a really lovely family feel and the overall working day at selfridges is lovely.
I loved working there, my first job after college and loved it so much I stayed there for 8 years. I left as they was extending their opening hours and I didnt feel safe travelling home so late at night but other than that I'd still be there now
A typical day is never the same, it's full of opportunities and you get to work with great people who are willing to guide and support you along the way. The culture is dynamic most days, where the business is always offering motivating courses and events to get involved with. The job itself is full of open windows and you are able to take your role where you want it to be.
