Pretty chilled warehouse

A relaxed atmosphere and not too much hassle from supervisors just don’t expect much praise for your contribution at the end of your shift. Can be a bummer when the drinks vending machine is out of order when you come in at the start of your shift. Very dated MHE.

Pros

Good work colleagues.

Cons

Can be very dusty.

Bullied to within an inch of my life

I was warned about the Glasgow management team and their penchant for bullying. I thought I could handle it...Paperchase, the worst 3 months imaginable. Was told by HR to keep a diary of events, which I did. I was let go at the 3 month stage, Quoting my boss, "It has nothing to do with your ability to do the job. You're very talented" Glasgow Visual merchandisers you've been warned!!

Pros

None

Cons

Still employing bullies

busy, relaxed, mainly enjoyable

Good place to work, sometimes rather unorganised, it can be busy and stressful at times, being alone on the shop floor is usually a regular occurrence and can sometimes be difficult

A very good company to work for.

A fast paced environment. Intelligent and highly motivated staff helped by the excellent manager. There was a great deal of support from the Area Manager too when the manager was off sick long term due to a serious illness. Customers were very nice generally speaking which helped.

Paperchase

Typical day was busy. Management was good. Workplace culture was clean and tidy. Most enjoyable part of working there was seeing all the new stock coming in.

Ambiente lavorativo stimolante

I negozi Paperchase sono molto stimolanti soprattutto nel periodo natalizio, vista la vendita di decorazioni natalizie classiche e non.

great management and friends.

Relaxed environment but one that encourages you to work to the best of your ability. Supportive management and supervisors and colleagues. Learned about visual merchandising, and encouraging people to set up points cards. Hardest part of the job is over Christmas or school holidays due to the increase in tourism at Cheshire Oaks. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with different types of customer from young to old and different interests which you can start conversation with them from what they're buying e.g. lots of craft things. The other members of staff also make it very enjoyable.

Fun, fast place to work

A great employer in the retail sector. Friendly culture from the top to the bottom. A decent work life balance although the demands around festive periods was quite intense.

Job isn't bad but the managers are

The management bully the workers they don't like, shout at you in front of colleagues and when the colleagues try to stand up for you they are shut down too. Many people kept leaving because of the management but obviously nothing will be done about that. The work and pay were not so bad though.

Good starting point for retail

I feel that Paperchase is the perfect place to gain retail experience as it's not too intense or stressful. I was taught everything I needed to know on my first day.

Fun and offers room for growth

Love the products we sell. Grateful for the opportunity for self-development. Loved my team and the location which I worked. Customers are friendly and help work seem less like work.

Didn’t work there long

The company was fine to work for. Was only there a couple weeks as I had another job and it was too much for me but the time I spent there was good. A bit boring but nice people.
