Best workplace i have ever had

The entire staff members I have met from start to finish have been absolutely fantastic and welcoming. Such a great working environment and experience I will never forget it . It has been a dream come true for me and for the amount of time I was working there I can honestly say I woke up every day thinking to myself YAAAY it's time to get to work.

Pros

Free White Dwarf for employees

Cons

Not there and understanding for the staff as they claim to be.

I wish to work again

From me it was a unique experience and I regret that I'm not working anymore... They were a fantastic team and management and I used to love the place... If I would have the chance I would go back to work in that cool company! Respect Games Workshop!

Good place to work

If you're good at talking you can do this. You dont even need vast knowledge of the company as you will learn quickly. Regular customers. Sense of community. Support from colleagues and higher ups.

Good place to work

Flexible hours, good ethos, caring overall. However, some of the veterans go to seconded roles and really do not have to interview if they decide to stay in that role.

Only if you like Warhammer

It's either 10000mph or zero. A lot of stopping and starting and they create shift patterns that last several months then expect you to change to fit them when the shift pattern doesn't work out as they've not prepared for it correctly as a business before hiring people. Use vast amounts of agency staff but never take any of them on whole externally advertising for the jobs the agency staff are doing.

Not recommended unless you really need a 50% discount on overpriced plastic toy soldiers

Advancement here does not depend on how well you do your job as much as how pally you are with senior managers. Department managers often have literally no previous experience in their area, and rely on the teams to make improvements, then take the credit. If your face doesnt fit you wont go far here. You'll do ok if you can talk a good job In endless meetings about meetings

Losing it's core culture

Games Workshop has been an amazing place to work for many years. Unfortunately now it's growth is beginning to stifle the culture and atmosphere that made it a great workplace. Staff are being pushed too hard and the turnover of staff in key areas is beginning to reflect this.

Pros

some good benefits

Cons

over worked

Cons

poor managment, low pay

Productive and Educational.

A typical day at Games Workshop requires you to be alert to every opportunity to interact with customers and to make use of conversations to show them what the Warhammer hobby is. Recruitment is the focus and you are followed based on how much recruitment you are doing (Selling core starter sets for example). It is a very educational work placement to have and I learnt a great deal during the three years I have worked for the company. I have learnt about customer interactions, the skills required to run a store smoothly, the skills to promote and run in store events to name just a few. Help and support is always available to those who need it from higher up and store managers will usual be happy to help.

Interesting place to work

A typical day involves working with customer who actively seek the store and have an active interest. Something helped by having your own interest in the product as well. I've learned a lot about maintaining a store and building a sustainable community. From my role as a relief worker I didn't engage often with the company's management above my own manager. Same goes for the wider culture of the company beyond my store.

Waste of time and effort

Kept applying for managers jobs only to be told I wasn't experience enough, only to see the job go to clowns with equal lack of experience but ability to follow orders like a trained dog.
