Sales Assistant in Peterborough

Some things definitely need to change
My experience working at this company was very mixed. The people that you work with (at least in my store) are easily the best part of the job, however the workload and the amount expected from you whilst you are there is simply too much with very little benefit out of it. Used to have a strong work ethic but found myself by the end of my employment going through the motions and feeling stuck.

Fast paced
Long hours. On feet all day. Fast paced. Exciting. Pay could have been better. Breaks could have been longer. A lot of staff turnaround at particular branch.

Pay is rubbish
Pay is rubbish needs to be looked at. There share save scheme is very good. You get 25% discount on clothing 75% off your uniform. Can swap shifts with colleges for convenience. You can also take hrs off if available

Not that great
Managers don’t really care about you as a person, they don’t think that you have a social life or family life to work round and expect you to work every day at minimum wage, without a day off.

Very unorganised system. Went for an induction and no one had a clue. Pay was never paid properly either and there’s a lack of organisation from the start of the application process.

Interview questions

I didn’t even have an interview! I had a telephone conversation which lasted 10 minutes and just was an informal chat, then an assessment which was following 2 “managers” round on shop floor for 20 minutes and rearranging some clothes. They then tell you you have/don’t have the job there and then. This was 3 years ago.

How much training did you get in your last store?

Shared on 20 September 2018

Writing and numeracy examinations - very easy. Mock call - very easy. General chat - very easy, don't say anything outlandishly stupid and you shall be fine.
