Key Holder in Lakeside Shopping Centre, Essex
One of the main reasons I loved working at Smiggle was because of my team and manager their was just amazing girls! I stayed longer because of them! It was a fun place to work at but very busy and the management wasn’t really helpful at times.

Worst job I've had.
It was a decent job for quick cash, but the environment was just strange.The manager was a bit of a man child and talked to everyone like children. Shop offers and sales changed daily, meaning it was borderline impossible to remember what exactly was in the deals of the day, and the constant changing prices. You were constantly pushed to hit targets that, on the often quiet days, was borderline impossible. And you were looked down upon for not bullying that rushing office worker into buying a journal and sand pot with her single ball point pen. There was an immense amount of pressure to constantly throw items in customers faces until they relented. If you had a twang of guilt or sense to stop after the fifth fluffy rainbow pen offer and just got the poor, cringing person their original items you would face the cold constant glare of your manager preparing a passive aggressive speech to encourage you to keep pushing these deals until the customer relents. That never sat well with me, this simply isn't a good place to work. Unless your freakishly jolly, okay with forcing deals upon deals down innocent peoples throat and are good at pulling teeth to get any conversation from your equally depressed coworkers.

Terrible company. Bullying
Typical day, 100% STRESS they want you to do a weeks worth of work in one day and during that time you will be lone trading most the time.Pay is always wrong and payroll talk to you like dirt.Management talk to you like dirt and want you live and breath smiggle even want you to work through your breaks. I really don't recommend working for this company.

A day in the life of Smiggle..
I loved every day of working for Smiggle! From the minute I started here I thoroughly enjoyed it. There’s a super friendly, relaxed, Aussie culture with every person you meet that works for Smiggle in upper management. You’ll learn loads of great skills working here!! It’s not for the faint hearted though (or lazy) - There’s loads to do and this is not a stand behind the till kind of job.. you need to be super focused, shop floor based, sales driven, highly organised and able to work under pressure in a very fast paced environment! There’s a huge amount of tasking and a real expectation for delivering only the best customer connection and experience! If you work hard it’ll certainly pay off, it’s a fab place to work and a really fun, upbeat working environment!! Loads of room for progression too!
