Long hours and Lone working

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Used to get great commission and incentives. Now only get 1% on sales 3% if everyone meets targets. No incentives now. Lone working from 6-8pm sometimes 4-8pm. As a store and other members of staff its' a great place to work.

Could be fun

Could be a fun place to work, in summer it was definitely better because of how busy it was and in winter it was so so slow that you’d wanna pull your hair out. But you might like that. There’s issues like management and the thefts that we always get blamed for but all in all it was okay .

Great Team and Fun Environment

Working at Sunglass Hut Reading, I had the best summer of my life. In terms of having schedules done and having days off, making sure the days I couldn’t do I had holiday… everything was perfect. The pay is fair and the team are amazing.

Colleagues are nice

but the management of the company can be improved. I never got properly trained. I was hired in a rush because other staffs wanna take their holidays.

No growing plaxe

I'm working since 5 month in sunglass hut Peter jones. Since I've started there was no supervisor and no assistant manager, only my manager. So for all these months I've done a lot of supervisor's work but at the end sho took a new girl as supervisor because she told that I'm too young.

fun ,fast pace . always busy

loved the one to one customer service . Everyday always different either dealing with customers on the perfect pair of sunglasses or taking in and putting out our deliveries. enjoyed being part of a team and learnt how important that skill is. learning new things from house keeping, how to play a part of customer after-care. I was trained on the tills and cash handling . Based on a concession in John Lewis i learnt the importance of given 100%.


discount on lunches, dinner, breakfast . meeting great people.
