Don't apply if you want something permanent
I worked here as a Christmas temp a few years ago now. I came in at short notice to cover and stayed after my shift was over to work extra hours as it was busy. I worked really hard during my time there, I was flexible, stayed extra hours and even came in early when I was asked. I covered at another store to help out as well as they were short staffed basically whatever I was asked to do I did. I must add to this review that I was twenty seven when I was working for the Perfume shop, I had eight years retail experience at the time and had also had management experience I got the impression they didn't like how experienced I was. They didn't keep me on after my time working there, they said there were no jobs available. A week later I went in the branch to find they had taken on the seventeen year old Christmas temp who started the same time as I did. So basically the point is don't apply if you are an older person cause they will take on someone younger they can pay less money to. Management are intimidated by your success in previous roles so if you have previously been successful in other jobs it might be better to keep that to yourself. Hard work, working extra hours at short notice and covering other branches is not appreciated. Probably a great place to work if you are under eighteen and want to earn some extra money over Christmas but not good if you are an older person who is looking for career progression or a job that is permanent.
Sales Assistant in London, Greater London
The management and area managers are all horrible. And will try to make your life as hard as possible if you turn down any overtime. They purposely give you small contracts so you hate taking holiday. And if the manager don't like you expect the worst shifts.
Worked like a pig for minimum wage.
Horrific managers supervisor job was just a glorified sales assistant with every responsibility but no manager pros. Very strict and shouted at me over the phone on several occasions allso no staff facilities was expected to eat outside the shop and use centre toilets.
Christmas Temp Sales Assistant in Liverpool, Merseyside
Politics among staff. Favouritism is clear & the pay isn’t great. Discount is nice but only can be used if area manager is there. Heating broke during winter & still expected to work in freezing cold conditions.
