Good staff culture, retail stress taking its toll
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 5 June 2018
The stresses of retail within the current economic climate has had an impact on the working environment.
Working within the teams is fun and there is a sociable aspect of working in a large store and a lot of fun can be had with customer facing roles at times as well as socializing during breaks and outside of work. Most management do a fantastic job and you get support most of the time from sales managers.
Cuts to budgets has really reflected head count and so staff motivation and happiness does seem low.
Wages for more responsible roles is next to nothing and the wage gap is getting smaller.
