Sales Assistant in Livingston
on 8 April 2022
fun but stressfull
I enjoyed working at North Face as it was a fun environment and lovely staff. My issue was with the amount of hours i was given when the store knew my availability. Most times i felt pressured into doing extra shifts that i was not able to do. I was placed on shifts when i was meant to be in school . I was only a seasonal sales assistant so i hope the part timers and full timers get a bit more respect with boundaries. All and all the jobs not hard and with the right management it would be pleasant.
Retail Supervisor in Newcastle upon Tyne

Terrible Management
I had the misfortune of working at the Newcastle store as a supervisor for nearly 3 years. As a company they say the right things and seem to care, but these messages get dilluted at this store as the manager is terrible. Days are long and boring for little pay. You do get 50% off discount which is pretty much the only perk. No work life balance at all. At this store the manager has zero personal life, and seems to want all staff to be the same and dedicate all their time to the brand. Schedules not completed fairly and often change last minute. If you have plans, tough. There is zero progression opportunities at this store, so all a bit of a waste of time unless you just want something easy and short term. The staff turnover in the Newcastle store is like nothing ive ever seen in my life. Be prepared to waste your time training new starters, only for them to suddenly leave and then you start again with the next one.

Stressful, long shifts, and expected to act as security.
Overall, I love the brand, but working there was incredibly stressful. I was constantly told to keep an eye out for shoplifters, and when we did get stolen from (which happened A LOT) it always felt like unless you were on the other side of the store, then you were to blame for not being vigilant enough. This meant I had to decide between doing my actual job of serving customers, and working as security at the front of the shop.Management was varied, I had a really good supervisor whilst I was there, but on the other hand there were definitely times where the other managers could be difficult.The hours were REALLY LONG, and I had to work overtime from the beginning, even though I was already contracted a lot of hours.The salary however was what I expected, and you do get a great discount on clothes and free uniform which changes a couple of times a year, and you get to take it home at the end.Overall, not a terrible experience.

VFC what a company
If you want a company to look after you and guide you in the direction of retail look no further. Management where absolutely amazing cannot speak more highly about this company.
