Absolutely loved the team that I worked with here. The environment is always good. It gets hectic once in a while but is managed pretty well by the management team. The manager is very considerate and kind. Enjoyed my time working here!

Pushy sell 2 pairs shoes
Pushy expecting you to sell 2 pairs shoes doesnt always work as they are all about profit and shoe care yeah there polite but its for a reason how much money can i make out of you. If you pulled up a sale pair and it was cheaper than what they was looking at they will tell you off.
Clarks Sales Assistant in West Midlands
A great place to work especially if your a student in education alongside
Clarks is a great place to work that allows you to flexibly work/study around it. All the staff I worked with are friendly and we all worked as a good team. This is a fantastic job that is payed fairly and allows you to meet new people every day. Also its difficult to find a retail job like this where the management is actually good so definitely worth it.

high expectations from management for a slow paced environment
I worked at clarks for almost 4 years and it was my first job. I did enjoy my time but that was due to the people I worked with, not so much the company. The company have far too high expectations for a brand that has stronger competitors on the high street nowadays which make it much harder to sell to customers and reach the ridiculous targets they set. It’s your fault if you don’t sell enough shoe care or get enough multisales etc even though there was very little footfall and you can’t be blamed for a customer not wanting to buy every single time. It was difficult to stay motivated in that sort of environment when you knew you were trying your hardest but it still wasn’t good enough. It’s a good first time job but for a slow paced environment it’s too stressful long term.
Management Team in Malvern
Lack of respect for employees mental and physical well being.
I worked with Clark’s a good amount of time, admittedly I learned a lot during my time at Clark’s and I do feel proud to have worked in my store with my team however I can’t say I’m proud to have worked for Clark’s as an employer. During my time at Clark’s there seemed to be constant issues with management and store maintenance much of which went largely disregarded. As a small store it felt as though the health and safety of store staff would usually be put secondary to cost of repair. ncentive have become rare, less desirable and unachievable over recent years. As a member of management team you can’t really on the help of your area manager, as they are usually absent or uninterested. As for job security last year we were bluntly told our store was not up for closure. Our store closed this December.
