You are given far too much work for one person to possibly do. When you ask for help you get ignored, then told 6 months later in your review you did a bad job even though you made them aware you needed help but never got any and tried your best with what you had/knew.
Real back stabbing, aggressive, blame culture with everyone out for themselves just to survive in the job. Very underpaid given the market rates for the role and They wanted to pay me even less!
Expected to come in at weekends for no extra pay to get a project finished and given strange looks for leaving on time or having a lunch break.
Watches Of` Switzerland group was a fantastic passionate environment which allowed me to build solid sales ingenuity & watch knowledge which has helped me throughout my career so far. I can't speak highly enough of the management who personally helped me out a lot.
Very Enjoyable working environment. Collaborative approach to working with pleasant colleagues. They go the extra mile to make you feel part of the team at this company. Salary is the only slight negative if I am being harsh but if that is not your main priority this really is a fantastic business to work for. Recommended.
putting stock in and out of the windows working to kpis making sure the shop floor looks clean and tidy . dealing with high end customers and report building . most enjoyable part of the job was wearing a suit and being clean and tidy and looking g professional .
As a company the staff are not valued and everyone is just a number in a short period of time I witnessed 14 of my colleagues leave due to the female manager which I felt as a company it should of been investigated other stores and people at Head Office knew that there was a high staff turnover under her management. The manager also dishonestly put on the payroll that she had worked when she had not.
When i first began working here i loved it, i learned so much. But beware if you seem capable they will expect more and more from you. To the point where you are doing multiple peoples jobs.
High work load with no bonuses and benefits. The office can be lovely to work in if you get in with the right people.
Lack of career progression and generally no drive in the office
The best part about Aurum is easily the people.
The role of a case handler is stressful and your workload can at times be very demanding. This is in no way reflected in salary or progression opportunities In the Hallmark office.
Having said this - I loved working here and made friends for life in that office.
I worked in head office for over two years, highly unprofessional atmosphere, when I asked the HR department for advice regarding what I was being asked to do by my superior for my role they forwarded the emails to my superior who I was asking for advice on!! Eventually had to leave as I was expected to work even during chemotherapy treatment (with a valid hospital note).
I worked for Aurum over 7 years, it's the most political place I have ever worked. seniors in the company are always getting dismissed and changing. dont get me wrong my in store collegues were amazing but the comany as a whole just doesnt follow thier own vision when it suits them.
