Nice colleagues, generally respectful management. Training non existent. All training was learning on the job as you go. Food in the canteen was excellent and well subsidised.
Benefits and job satisfaction
Early starts and lack of formal training
It was awesome place to work, pay and staff benefits were great, goals achievable, we had enough freedom, training and great customers.. made lots of friends there too, I would even like to come back for right position...

Long hours on your feet
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.
Salary was good
Management, cliques throughout head office and store, work life balance was non existent
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
Great name on your CV, great people, your day will go quick
Unsociable hours, poor pay, has become a souless store
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.
Everything was ok
But we worked a few days a week
Fantastic team to work with. Very professional. Informed and Knowledgeable. The management will help you wherever they can. Fantastic job security. Benefits. Amazing place to work they have the best security team in London
Pay, discounts, training development.
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.
Staff discounts, some progression opportunities, lots of great people, multicultural place
Low salaries, few perks/benefits, slow progression for high achievers
Great place to work good managers friendly staff lively and fun place.Worked in tax free as a christmas temp which they made me a permanent staff would definitely work there again if the opportunity arises. Cant really complain about anything great benefits when working in harrods because of the discount which they provide staff too

Jobs at Harrods Ltd.
Management were decent at the beginning but after restructuring the staff around, this caused a little more discomfort and seemed discouraging to staff. Pay is below what you would expect for such a prestigious department store. Advancement opportunities are slow and do not pay enough, overall a good working experience but cons would be that they do not value you enough to offer better incentives.
A social and collaborative atmosphere. Can be very clicky and gossipy. Generally not much career growth, unless your very committed to becoming friends with those that will decide your fate. However
Salary, hours, late shifts/weekends, always have to be on
Staff discount/business allowance, if you’re a shopping addict you’ll love it!!!
I have worked there only for the Christmas sales period, it was a good experience for me. It may be a bit hard at times as you're supposed to stand on your feet all the time. In the department where I worked, we didn't get commission because we were not allowed to process payments, so permanent employees got that commission.
I worked part time in cosmetics for 3 years. OK it is retail but top end and the best place to be for retail, don’t expect it to be any different to other retail apart from the discounts and benefits that are amazing, these alone will keep you here. They are always selling designer clothing/dinner ware or perfume which are heavily discounted to staff for charity. You get days out paid for, the Harrods ball to attend and Christmas hamper for Christmas.
