Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – London – 6 December 2017
I wouldn't really work their again, everyone was nice and very easy to work with and that overall was really great, but if their was only more help then that would have been great, and would have made my life and the customers life a lot more easier, because it's really sad when i find it hard to communicate, and that's something that is important in a work environment.
A good place to start if you are unfamiliar with retail work
Store Assistant (Volunteer) (Former Employee) – London – 16 November 2017
Superdrug is a place where you can start working in retail if you are unfamiliar with work and do not want to be overwhelmed by giants such as Sainsburys. The people are generally very nice and supportive if you are new; in my experience, even though I came in with no previous references, people were willing to show me the ropes and looked like they were genuinely wanting to be helpful as supposed to just having to do it as part of their duty. It is heart warming and I would definitely recommend trying to apply for a place at the Superdrug near you if you are looking for friendly people and enjoyable work.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 16 November 2017
As a sales assistant, my job consisted of standing for 6 hours in the aisles and asking if anyone needs help, and people asking me for help. The store I was personally situated in was freezing cold with broken heating, making it an uncomfortable environment for me to work in. My shifts ended at 11pm, but frequently staff higher up than me would have me stay later to tidy up more. It was not a tight knit environment between employees and often was very stressful. Lunch break was also only 15 minutes and the office was minuscule, with one seat between 6+ staff members.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 25 October 2017
Worked just for a couple of months it has been a good experience for me. My role was to stack shelves with te right products, helping customers find the right products that they need, working in a large team with different staff members and cleaning the store.
Sales Assistant / Fragrance Specialist (Former Employee) – London – 16 September 2017
Enjoyed the team that I worked with but I felt that this company takes their staff for granted. The branch where I worked was one of their flagship stores but you wouldn't think so with the lack of staff they had and I felt that this was a dis-service to the customer because they could not find staff to assist them. For the low wages they were paying whilst I was there this company definately got their monies worth because most of the time it felt like you were doing 3 peoples jobs.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 17 August 2017
I mostly had to walk around the store which is not ideal but I liked helping out and the staff were very polite and helpful. It was a very good time for me to be out in the real world and I did at least get a break for lunch which. However the job was tiring since I was supposed to walk around the whole store (mainly the cosmetics section) which meant I had to give customer service to people in that department despite having no knowledge about anything there.
1 hour break or 2 half hour breaks, staff were helpful and nice to me, not too difficult.
Boring, Tiring, Some customers were rude, some customers are very hard to understand.
