Don’t do it
If you like working in the cold this is for you! Getting very wet and having to stay in wet clothes all day sign up! They think they are selling something precious so you have to be out on the store front even if there is nothing to do. You have nowhere to go to the toilet. No refreshments and let on your own for a lot of the time - is this not a requirement of employment law? Understaffed during busy times. You will have so many customers it just becomes hectic - weekends are crazy. You’ll then be bored senseless as they stay open in the evening to 10pm sometimes. The staff is rife with nepotism - mates and girlfriends get the better jobs of managers and area managers despite having no previous experience.

A happy festive and fun place to be
I was a manager for one of the pines and needles stores last year so my review comes from a management position. A good place to work, but you will be working hard. The stores exist for less than two months of the year and the pressure is on to make as many sales as possible in this short time frame. This may sound daunting but you're selling the one product everyone wants at that time of year and those sales come easy. Your job is to be as happy and as helpful as possible, we're here to make Christmas happen and want customers to have a great experience whilst shopping for their tree. The weekends are the busy times, with the majority of customers coming through at that time, expect to be selling trees non stop in those times, the week day shifts are a little more relaxed but tend to be covered by just the managers. The trees sold vary in size from just 1ft tall all the way to 12ft with the majority being sold in the 6-8ft size.these trees can be very heavy when they are wet so its not light work. you'll be given contacts for restocking teams, technical support teams, electricians, area managers, administration support etc, So everything you need to support you is on hand.

Suffer suffer
Do not work here... They just use you over the festive season. It's literally slave labour then they get rid of you. The pay definitely doesnt meet the work, so if you like to suffer this is the place
