I worked in newlook, as a Sales Team Leader for a year after leaving arcadia and it was the WORST decision I had ever made! They treated me like dirt! I was on a 16 hour contact but would be made to work up to 45. I did so much and got paid peanuts. When the manager wasn't there I would basically single handedly run the shop! With not even a 'thank you' yet when i needed time off for personal reasons I was denied it "just because" I would be expected to drop anything in my personal life to work and received no thanks or gratitude!! The regional managers were just as bad, non caring and condescending whilst they did next to nothing! Many of the other workers in mine and other stores felt the same way!
DON'T EVER WORK FOR NEW LOOK!! IT'S A TERRIBLE COMPANY!!
EVERYTHING ELSE (sporadic hours, lack of thanks and praise, overall attitude of managers, lack of understanding, need I go on??)
