Great beginner job
As a first job, it was a good introduction to the retail industry, pay was fair for the work done although it could get overwhelming at sometimes due to the large influx of customers. Some really great people, and some not so great people, laid off sometime before they closed.

Very good first job
I worked here for 9 years before being made redundant. I have fond memories of the place, my manager was great as was the store I was based in. Not much chance of promotion as the store was inevitably going to close.

Good work place

Easy compared to other retailers
Compared to other clothing store chains, this certainly felt more relaxed but there’s no real drive there and I’m not sure why certain positions exist.
