The environment was very friendly. Team mates and managers were helpful and friendly. The pay and hours were great at the time of working. There was no shortage of tasks to handle. It was a good temporary job.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience, colleagues all very friendly and helpful when I started. Found it easy to pick up all the skills I needed to carry out my tasks in the store. Managers were very helpful and always around to offer help and feedback.

It was my first warehouse job, I learned a great deal from them, organization, the importance of cleaning and team work. The managers were very friendly and they got us to the level required to work in that environment.
Associate (Former Employee) – Hertfordshire – 29 December 2017
This job gave me many skills that i have been able to apply to other jobs, you work as part of a team and there is a good level of communication within the team. Also as it is a retail company you have to have good people skills to work with all kinds of people who are part of the general public.
Christmas Temp Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Metrocentre, Tyne and Wear – 28 December 2017
A typical day a work? I dreaded coming in every shift, the thought of leaving was always lingering but I knew I needed the money. What did I learn? How to perfectly align shoes on a shelf, hang hangers, be a slave to customers and managemnt.
Customer Advisor/Cashier (Former Employee) – London – 19 December 2017
Busy day, a lot of work to do. I learned how to work in retail section. Management was good but could be better. High workplace culture. The hardest part of the job was in Christmas time. Really busy and a lot of work. The most enjoyable part of the job, you can meet a lot of interesting people and chat with them.
With high targets to hit you expect a little pressure, however the atmosphere is so relaxed it doesn't feel like work. Being able to listen to music is a massive bonus and you really feel like you're part of a strong team.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Carlisle – 5 December 2017
Not great, company culture is poor with a great deal of bullying by senior managers. Often feels like a shambles even though there is some method to what they do. Work life balance can be unreasonable, with massive workloads sprung on you at very very short notice. Store we worked at had faulty heating and one winter it was -2c on the shop floor, we were told, when we asked for it to be repaired, to work faster.
None spring to mind
Very heavy workloads at very short notice, poor work life balance
Team leader (Former Employee) – Bristol – 3 December 2017
I enjoyed the time I've spent there. I met a lot of people from many different places and I learnt a lot about the business, the merchandising, the teamwork, the customer service and also about myself.
