Stressful and cliquey
I worked at Harrods for just over a year. During that time I experienced stress like no other. Managers were cliquey and used to talk about their staff behind their backs. Stress was put on employees that was unnecessary, to reach unattainable goals set. Management would change their direction like the wind and employees were expected to go along with it, despite being told the complete opposite hours prior. Employees were spoken to like absolute garbage and I’ve never experienced disrespect from some managers like I have here. Yes, the name is nice to have on your CV, but in my experience, it really wasn’t worth the hassle given on a daily basis. I would think twice before working here if you really value your dignity and pride. Also be prepared to see colleagues pulled into meetings and never seen again, as they had people out the back door on a weekly basis.
Harrods Security Officer in Thatcham, Berkshire
Avoid at all cost
Avoid Thatcham security, 60+ staff sacked or left in 7 yrs, same management, no support, if you have a family avoid this place, no future, you will be treated and spoken to like your a child, no future aspects as team leaders have been there 20+ yrs and seeing out retirement, staff stabbing each other in the back, no one is your friend, nothing will change, apart from that ok place.
Stock Controller (By Appointment Personal Shopping) in London
Fast paced, unsociable hours, poor pay
Having worked at the company for 10 years in 2 roles I have seen the best and the worst of the company.Harrods is a great name to have on your CV and is face paced so your day goes very quick. Unfortunately the salary's offered are relatively poor compared to other companies and this affects the staff turnover and especially with managers coming in to get Harrods on their CV's and then leaving for better pay within a year.Working late hours can be very draining and the culture of being money orientated isn't for everyone (it made me want to leave in the end).The benefits are fairly good but not amazing
