Retail Sales Assistant in Basingstoke, Hampshire
on 13 June 2022
Generally relaxed atmosphere
HC expects staff to an effort promoting their club card / cards issued, swiped and customer reviews monitored but staff get nothing more than a pay on the back for these. Most people work 4 hour shifts and you are expected to work at weekends and bank holidays.providing Good customer service is Essential

Not good
Not good. Other colleagues are good but the management not so good. All panicking and shouting at the colleagues. Did not feel welcome at all.Good team but poor management

Worked in the head office/hub
I found the company itself to be OK but my team was the most unfriendly team I've ever worked for. My line manager appeared to be inexperienced and very uncaring. There was a very strange atmosphere and my team colleagues appeared to be very unhappy. One member of the team who sat next to me never even said hello or gave any eye contact in 5 weeks! No-one spoke to each other and when I raised this with my line manager she couldn't of cared less. I couldn't bear the awful atmosphere so I left.

Pressured, poor management and hard working employees
Hobbycraft is a fast paced environment to work. Everyone works hard there leaving no time for breaks and a good work life balance. I was excited to work for hobbycraft however the reality of working there changed my opinion of it. They expect a lot of there employees and are managed by people who don’t support you they just add more to the workload without giving you appropriate training. I felt like the team moral was low due to these issues and this made it a very tense environment to work in.
