More of the same

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
When I first started, it felt like a family. I really enjoyed working their but now it’s become the same as every other business out there. They treat their employees like cogs in the machine and the focus is on profits profits profits. Under appreciated and undervalued. The hours aren’t bad but can be quite physical.

Pros

Occasional bonus, colleagues are nice

Cons

Physically difficult, management don’t care about employees, little opportunity for advancement unless management like you

Waste of time

Working here was a waste of time, management have no idea what to do and will lie and backstab their why through the day. Don't expect help or understanding from any of them, also tell regional managers as little as possible unless you want your private life out in the open.

Pros

None

Cons

High turnover of staff, lies lies and more lies

Great company to work for given plenty of opportunities to prove yourself and progress. Bonus scheme is brilliant. Alot of hard work due to heavy lifting but hard work pays off.

Pros

Chances to progress and bonus scheme

Cons

Hard work due to heavy lifting, if your not used to it

Over promised and dramatically undelivered.

Although there are some lovely people that work for the company, The culture is shocking some store managers would not make it beyond the first few weeks in alot of retail roles but for some reason lazy backstabbers thrive at jysk but only due a quite frankly embarrassing amount of brow nosing and self glorification. Did work in one really good store for training but after that it was consistently bad. I have many years of retail and this was by far the worst avoid at all cost i assure you if you have serious a retail background you will hate this place.

Pros

Non

Cons

Wish I worked somewhere else

The management of jysk UK is terrible have no idea what they are. Doing and expect too much of us I'd never tell a friend ' oh you should look to apply for a job it's amazing' otherwise I'd be lying.

Pros

Bit of bonus

Cons

Long hours and if worked elsewhere for everything I do I'd get paid more that I'm on here

Favouritism is a problem

Dangerous job, the company do not care about safety. Prepared to suck up and make a big deal about doing your job to a basic level, then this is the job for you. Such a fake, toxic culture you feel like you need to show off for them to acknowledge you exist instead of being results focussed. Poorly run logistically, a lot of errors you have to correct manually then get punished for it on KPIs and bonus.

Pros

Bonus scheme has improved

Cons

If you do not suck up you do not exist, Inner circle is toxic and will try to remove you if you aren’t in it

Not a place to work

If you have no responsibilities and have no morals and do more than you meant to do everytime without fail, do not get proper training, treated like a number. And a lot of favouritsm on people who seem like they do work but only make tea and chat to staff and customers for long periods of time tten complain they havnt got time to there work. Complete shambles. I say this as i work for a highly respected company.

Great Career. Hard Work But Rewarding

Store Manager for Doncaster. Great team great store. Lots of hands on hard work. If you like a challenging varied day it's great. Typical day is working in store just like any other employee from working delivery to serving and helping customers. You had a lot of tasks and deadlines to manage but once you have worked there a few months this becomes manageable. Can be long days but you do manage your own Rota. A friendly supportive company who is growing fast.

Pros

Staff discount and growing company

Cons

some stores low staffed, but activley been worked on

Overworked under paid, under staffed

worked for a period as store manager, stores understaffed working 1 on 1 no breaks. average working week 60 plus hours paid for 45. unable to take hours back, constantly covering other stores or at head office. fear culture is strong, do anything wrong on your fired, no t many managers worked there over 2 years, not a good job, no security, over worked under paid, sometimes 6am starts till 9pm at night, no such thing as a day off constantly phoning you, cant take holidays always refused and then you loose your pay. bonus us made more and more difficult to achieve, dont expect to receive any

Pros

every store is same (bad) so other store get how you feel

Cons

lots, under paid long hours, poor head office management

Fantastic Career Prospects

An absolutely fantastic company to work for. The level of support you receive is unreal and it was 100% the best decision I could have made joining JYSK. As for work life balance, the management are very accommodating and try their very best to ensure you have the right balance between the home and work environment. It is fantastic working for a company where you can progress and actually be rewarded for your hard work.

Pros

Excellent team

Cons

Excellent and fun place to work

I have been with Jysk for nearly 6 months now and can honestly say it’s a fab place to work. Some days are tough but that just makes the results feel even better. We work hard not only as a store team but as a whole UK team and everyone appreciates everyone else. No good deed goes unturned and the higher management team are very good at making sure those that go above and beyond are acknowledged. The progression opportunities are amazing and if you want to reach the top you absolutely can and everyone within the company will help you along the way. No two days are the same and i wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pros

excellent progression

Cons

sometimes long hours
