Only benefit of working here would be the discount
-Poor management and of delegating workload - rewarded by your hard work of being given other incompetent members of staff to do -Incredibly b**hy immature colleagues - very poor salary and no progression - very unprofessional behaviour by other members of staff- not a nice working environment with a lot of negative attitude by others

Selfridges is a great place to work in terms of how you feel a sense of fun working there with all of its happenings and workplace culture. Also working in a department store is always better in my opinion, rather than a stand-alone store because you feel a bit more freedom with how big the Selfridges stores are, there are always things to see.
BRAND AMBASSADOR (Current Employee) – London – 26 November 2018
Worst management I have ever, EVER come across. The rota is unfair, the hours and days are unbearable. 1% commision is so low compared to other brands in selfridges. Payroll always get my wage incorrect. They dont pay you holiday and there is limited sick pay. When I fell very ill I ran out of sick pay and had no money for months. The managers are unorganised, unfair and very lazy and unproffesional. It seems most managers across selfridges are this way.
TAILOR FITTER (Former Employee) – Oxford Street – 5 November 2018
Too many management layers who all look at everyone under them with jealousy. They talk about development and your future but this doesn't come true unless you are up the managers ****. The only good thing are the other workers on the floor, all very nice and friendly. There is NO work life balance only work work work. Your are there to serve the rich.

DOC CLEARING (Former Employee) – Cleaning – 19 September 2018
To do my best to support the security group including monitoring the interior and exterior of the company, checking to make sure that certain doors are locked when they are supposed to be and reporting my suspicious activity to the local police department immediately.
Supervisor at Agent Provocateur (Former Employee) – London – 2 September 2018
Work/life balance doesn't exist due to the opening hours and shift patterns. Getting into the store and on the shop floor takes at least 10 mins reducing the time of your breaks and start time at work. Despite this it's a fairly friendly place to work.

This is a typical department store place of employment. High staff turn-over. They should probably focus on some sort of career progression plan in place for employees that aren't there as a temporary job.
