Pay is appalling for what one is expected to do. Only a good place to work if your passion is watches. For a store selling luxury goods the staff get paid less that most supermarkets! No motivation for staff. The systems aren’t the best making a simple task take a chunk from your day. Wouldn’t recommended.
Passion for watches and competitive nature - work here
The WOS group is a fantastic company where you can learn a lot of interpersonal skills. However, the environment is a fast-paced one, sometimes stressful as well since you have to make sure that you hit all your targets.
You are given far too much work for one person to possibly do. When you ask for help you get ignored, then told 6 months later in your review you did a bad job even though you made them aware you needed help but never got any and tried your best with what you had/knew. Real back stabbing, aggressive, blame culture with everyone out for themselves just to survive in the job. Very underpaid given the market rates for the role and They wanted to pay me even less! Expected to come in at weekends for no extra pay to get a project finished and given strange looks for leaving on time or having a lunch break.
- relaxed environment with a great deal of product knowledge - team work but also an independent role - great amount of training - great benefits and support from company - shift work due to airport
Watches Of` Switzerland group was a fantastic passionate environment which allowed me to build solid sales ingenuity & watch knowledge which has helped me throughout my career so far. I can't speak highly enough of the management who personally helped me out a lot.
ensuring all stock is well presented and in correct position. engaging and empathizing with the customers, providing a world class experience for them at all times. product repairs to be processed providing attention to detail and correct costings adhered. the most enjoyable is undoubtedly dealing with insurance customers, as great empathy has to be shown in acquiring the most satisfactory result in their claims. always assisting newer staff members when required.
bonus applied upon surpassing sales targets
due to work place environment, store closure only one day per year. However, this store has now closed.
Very Enjoyable working environment. Collaborative approach to working with pleasant colleagues. They go the extra mile to make you feel part of the team at this company. Salary is the only slight negative if I am being harsh but if that is not your main priority this really is a fantastic business to work for. Recommended.

long hours, dealing with difficult customers
As a company the staff are not valued and everyone is just a number in a short period of time I witnessed 14 of my colleagues leave due to the female manager which I felt as a company it should of been investigated other stores and people at Head Office knew that there was a high staff turnover under her management. The manager also dishonestly put on the payroll that she had worked when she had not.
