I would work twelve hours a week but the rotas would not be released until two days before my shift so juggling finding out the shifts and college was a bit of an issue. The managers are lovely and the workplace is calm and chilled but can be stressful particularly in the Christmas rush.
Cons
Hours not released until two days before the shift

Managers are extremely rude to everyone which resulted in HR having to get involved with the problems in store. They are all unorganised, don’t listen to availability at all and are forced to work hours you cannot do purely because they didn’t check before making the routa. Associates are made to stay after shifts and not being able to rearrange transport home even though people were waiting outside. Many associates were made to cry on the shop floor and many have said it very much effected their mental health

Always cleaning up others mistakes (Including management) because no one respected any authority and everyone was constantly undermined no matter what

The job itself i really enjoyed however the management at lakeside store are horrible. They talk to you like your dirt. Your best isn't enough. Overtime is forced onto you. There is only a couple of days notice of your rota which is continually changed without you being asked. You fill out an availability form of what hours you can work between but this is always ignored then you are made to feel guilty when you can't do the hours they put. If you question anything regarding your hours you are just told NO. There's no flexibility at all. If you stand up for yourself you are bullied via the rota. Night shift is just given to you even when you state you can't work nights. Avoid at all costs.

Throughly enjoyed my time working at homesense. If you get the chance you can be sent away to other stores and do store opens where everything is paid for.

Homesense is a busy shop floor. The variety of goods rapidly changing over providing a stimulating environment. Great effort put into refreshing and displaying stock. Enthusiastic hard working friendly team. Great interaction with customers.

There are several Homesense stores throughout the UK but where I work in Sheffield is brilliant. I'm not saying it can't be tiring but when the store is busy its better because your shift goes really fast so you actually prefer it being busy! The managers are very 'can do' and there isn't really any negativity in the work place unless were having a joke about a crazy customer or something which isnt really negative lol. You do work hard for your money but because I genuinely enjoy my job I don't mind. Managers are flexible and will try and accommodate you where possible with holidays and time off, they really support their staff and take care of us. Just to clarify I'm working in a combi store with TK Maxx and Homesense but I work on the Homesense and I'm glad I work in the Homesense bit as it's generally more relaxed.
