Seasonal Sales Associate in Westfield Stratford City, Greater London
Good for seasonal work. That's it really.
Not the best place I've worked in. Although some customers and colleagues made the work fun and enjoyable, it was unbearable majority of the time. As a seasonal temp I was pushed into the deep end w/o any formal training and product knowledge. After a month you pick things up but it didn't make things any better. I was constantly placed in the same section which made each shift boring and unbearably long, I wasn't given a variety of work to do, and I didn't even get to work on the tills. The management however was really nice, supportive, and accommodated hours to my availability but it would never have been enough to continue working here. If you have any mental health conditions I do not recommend working as VS.

Beautiful Store but Hard Work!
I was over the moon to get to be invited to work at the flagship store on Bond St in London’s West End. The store is stunning and I felt proud to work there. But the problems began from the day I started. Managers and floor leaders were kept quitting suddenly putting other staff in charge who were not qualified in managing, resulting in not receiving the proper training. There was so much to learn and it was expected of you to know it all immediately. There was constantly bullying and telling off and you are made to feel dumb or inadequate, to the point where you break and are constantly upset . The shifts can be scheduled morning, noon or night I was getting home midnight sometimes. So be prepared for all hours. As gorgeous as the store is I decided to leave after 4 months. No job is worth that much misery.
Sales Assistant (Temp) in Birmingham, West Midlands
I only worked here as a temp but actually got my contract ended earlier than I thought without any notice, so I was a bit taken back as I then had no income.Most of the staff members were friendly but also it is very cliquey which I didn't get along with. you have to wear an ear piece so you tend to get nagged quite a lot to do tasks in your ear, so was quite stressful.

Educational yet tedious
You will learn to go above and beyond in your role.The culture is unsettling.Management and team is yet to understand the power of owning their role.
