Sales Assistant in Worthing, West Sussex
Great place to work
The works involved mostly Serving on the till putting out deliveries and ensuring everything is displayed correctly. I learned a lot about customer service and training was really good and I felt I was eased into my role really well (a great job if you have no experience). I would say the hardest part of the job was my hours changing and at least 3 times in my 4 years there my hours were changed and we were told that our store was closing down. Because of this, I ended up getting a second job. The best part of the job for me was our regular customers and helping customers who were compared with other stores generally really nice and appreciative.
Excellent company to work for
Made to feel part of the team from day one, 3 weeks training in another store which was great, got to visit head office and meet everyone involved 5 star treatment
Terrible company to work for
The Works are a terrible company to work for the work load is impossible constant deliveries on top of trying to serve customers with little staff so they save money. They don't value their staff and don't praise them. You don't get paid to set up tills or cash up job totally takes over your life and most area managers have an attitude problem. The constant sales rising prices and then decreasing them of stock is a joke too

Best job ever
Working for The Works has truly been the best job ever. Being paid to have fun and demo products, where else can you find that? The teams in store are incredibe, the management from store managers to CEO and everyone in between are friendly and approachable and there is always someone on the end of the phone to help with a problem. It is sometimes difficult and there is lots of deliveries and constant moving tables/displays to fit products out but you have a lot of free reign to merchandise in whichever way you want. It's fun, challenging and rewarding and I wouldn't swap it for the world. The development and advancement is great, you can always learn something new.
