Assistant Manager in Stockton-on-Tees, Durham
on 28 April 2022
Good commission scheme but poor basic
Best commission scheme I’ve seen in carpet/flooring retail however what you take home balances out because if you’re not selling (or if you’re off or on holiday) you’re on minimum wage. Only employ the minimum number of staff they can get away with meaning a lot of hard and physical work ie lifting heavy products and rolls. On the flip side if you’re a strong salesman and not much staff competition you can do well on commission. Expected to work all bank holidays. Promoting internally is good - I started as a salesman and was promoted to assistant manager so the opportunity to progress is there
Warehouse Assistant in Rotherham, South Yorkshire

Stressful and over worked
No clear direction from the head office to the stores.Very behind with the times in terms of products, fitting and salary.Marketing is only for carpets and free fitting rather than advertising equally for other products, such as artificial grass, vinyl flooring, laminate flooring and beds.
Fitter in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire

Underpaid underappreciated
Unless you hit lucky and land a job fitting for one of the few store managers who understand the trade, you will be spoken down to when you reccomend doing things correctly, blamed for things a estimator has ballsed up and paid a pittance in comparison to even other major stores, who are also not great payers... 2.50 per square meter with a 30 minimum charge being standard at the store I worked, while a competitor was paying 4 per square meter with a 60 minimum, carpet are never ready for you, so you have to do the stores staff job yourself by finding, cutting and rolling them, there is no space for cutting so you look a cowboy turning up and having to cut outside and the way they word their free fitting deals you have to turn up and spend the first half hour of a job explaining you need to be paid, some days I turned up (half hour drive) to be then told there was no work and to go home, absolutely avoid

Store Assistant - Full Time in Birmingham, West Midlands
on 10 January 2020
Ups and downs.
The job is labour intense. You will be expected to do the normal labour of a store assistant but also a warehouse or house removal workers. A lot of heavy lifting.
