Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 26 October 2018
An enjoyable workplace where the hours take away from the enjoyment. A lot of pressure is put on staff to constantly be available at short notice. The job itself is interesting and challenging in it's own way but it reaches a limit with little opportunity for career advancement.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Walsall, West Midlands – 21 October 2018
You're simply treated like a dart you got to hit a target. The company treats you like disposal humans you're just a biological robot to them. Horrible experience they send you everywhere to do rubbish jobs for long hours standing. Half an hour break by the time you walk to take your break it's time to go back because of the long walk. Rubbish management totally unhappy.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Cardiff – 18 October 2018
The most awful, inhumane, exhausting, pushy job you could ever come across. The managers expect you to do multiple things at once and you're not allowed to even smile at other employees without being punished for 'not staying focused.' I felt like a robot for my entire two years working there. I was brought to tears multiple times. We never got out on time as a team, they would never ask you to stay behind, they just wouldn't let you out until everyone else's jobs were complete. Whenever you would do a good job, you'd get no praise but if you did something slightly wrong, they loved to punish you. Awful. I will never look back.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 7 October 2018
The company can be tough but fair to work for with strict time scales to achieve large tasks. Demanding and rewarding at the same time with a great starting wage for anyone over the age of 16, fair in that regard and plenty of benefits for staff members who are with the company.
Often a simple job, though time and productivity demands depend on the load size of incoming stock. Mostly short hours but can be asked in earlier or later depending on time of year (e.g. earlier hours during Christmas season). Job satisfaction regularly diminished by hostile co-workers in higher positions.

Sales Assistant / Team Leader / Duty Manager (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 20 August 2018
Customer and teamwork focused workplace. As a main responsability I had to drive a team of 8,9 people or more during trade hours. Monitoring sales is a every day task. Face to face custumer and contractor communication, dealing with complains, making sure that day to day duties are achieved. Following closing and safety procedures at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part is that we build a familiar environment and teamwork is a must.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – London – 18 August 2018
A typical day at work consisted of being told whether to work at the cashier or changing rooms or on the floor dependent on where you were needed or not. I received no proper training only what my colleagues hastily taught me as we had no time during the shift. The management was an absolute mess as different managers would often disagree and the lower employees would have a difficult time deciding which request to listen to. In only four months we had two different branch managers and as soon as the new branch manager was employed, I was fired. This job does however teach you how to deal with situations where you had little time and a lot to do.
10% employee discount
short lunch breaks, no real employee benefits, employee discount only 10% for ridiculous shifts and rude fellow employees.
