I would like to say about Harrods, that it is a very good company, you can work quietly and without stress, the people are very respectable, and the conditions in the place where you work are very good.
Pros
Everything was ok
Cons
But we worked a few days a week

Worst place ever coming from a diverse person this place gives you the creeps lol it has a reputation but behind closed doors is a world of teen exploitation. Nevermind the cost to ones moral standards you will find the vast range of crazy unethical questions asked if you work at this place.

Come dipendende di base non credo ci siano molti posti di lavoro migliori di questo, gia salendo un po la graduatoria aziendale ti rendi conto pero che i tuoi superiori non hanno la minima idea di cosa voglia dire raggiungere un obbiettivo vendita senza mandare tutto il reparto a rotoli

For as amazing as it was to work for Harrods, you’re just an ID number nothing else, as a Porter you don’t get the respect you deserve. People don’t realise how hard your actual job is.
Pros
Amazing people
Cons
Backroom not respected

Great place to learn and to get into the luxury fashion industry. There is a lot of great people here but the most important is to have a good relationship with your manager. If you are hardworking and you have a supportive manager, the sky is the limit here. HOWEVER, if you have a bad and toxic manager your days will be unbearable.
Pros
Staff discounts, some progression opportunities, lots of great people, multicultural place
Cons
Low salaries, few perks/benefits, slow progression for high achievers

My first ten years were eventful especially on the doors, however this was enjoyable especially when meeting VIP's. Progression was good. The hardest part was when my team was relocated outside of London. Manager's who I worked over the years were friendly and helpful. I learned a lot in my time with company and gained experience from all walks of life.
Pros
Workplace facilitates are good

I have worked for Harrods on two separate occasions, for their Christmas and New Year Sales. The first time was in 1990/1991, and the Second time was in 1992/1993. In both occasions it was a very enjoyable experience. On the second occasion I was presented with a bottle of Bollinger by Mr Al-Fayed the owner of Harrods, for my sales in the pantry area which was a great touch.
Pros
Work for Great Customer’s and Staff, free lunch, and good discounts
Cons
None

Employees are treated very well. The work was fair and I dealt with all kinds of different customers which made the job challenging and rewarding. Luxury Retail has given me the skills to progress and hopefully work at more retail stores in the future.

The easy part of the job is the excellence of Harrods makes it easier to attract customers regardless of your ability to interact with people. the hardest part is making the effort to show your 100% even when in a difficult situation, when customers ask you refund, and giving them 100% instead of 80% refund.
Pros
Christmas lunches
Cons
long hours

I was told I would have a particular job and duties by the agency (a good job), then on arrival I was made to clean bins the whole time! Nothing like that was EVER mentioned! I felt so played. Buy your own steel toe boots, the agency gives you the worst shoes to walk around in all day.
