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

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

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
None

I have worked for JYSK since June 2018 and I can honestly say that by far it is the best company I have worked for , you receive lots of support from your team and everyone involved in JYSK . When I first joined this company my confidence wasn’t that great and I didn’t value myself as much as I do now , I first saw this company as ‘just another job’ but quickly came to realise it is a career and one I want to succeed in . We are all one big family and I can’t thank the teams of jysk enough for everything they do for me . You wouldn’t want to pass up the opportunity to work for such and amazing company !
Pros
Amazing career opportunities
Cons
None

I worked here for just under a year as an apprentice. I was guaranteed 30 hours a week, but at £3.33 (which went up to £3.50) it didn't really feel worth it. Once my apprenticeship ended, I was told I would only be offered a 6 hour contract. This wasn't good enough for me as I had bills and direct debits to pay for so I had to find a new job However, the job itself wasn't bad. I enjoyed working with my colleagues and we always had a good laugh. I also met some really lovely customers that really made it feel like the job was worth doing, and outweighed the customers who were unnecessarily rude.
Pros
great people to work with
Cons
not offering good contract hours

It's a growing company, still working out the every day functions of business. It has the potential to be great. High Turn over rate, low customer satisfaction, unhappy employees
