Productive and fun but complete disregard to family life
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 13 October 2017
Its a good company that sells beautiful things for the home. Enjoyed working, helping customers, was praised by managers for being hard working, helpful, bubbly, friendly, never late or sick - but to get a holiday that I thought I earned was almost mission impossible... :(. 9 times of 10 would hear a "NO"... Reasons - not enough staff, "business needs". Complete absence of work / life balance.
If you have small children or elderly relatives to look after avoid at all costs - as your family does not count, it's "business needs"!
Decent wages, friendly staff, a lot of interesting things to learn
Expected to work every weekend, extremely difficult to get a holiday, complete disregard to employee's family responsibilities
