    I worked at Laura Ashley full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lovely things to sell, and nice to get staff discount on so many lovely things for the home, great to get my Christmas gifts on discount too.

    Cons

    Never enough staff... I had to come in early every day and stay late to get things done, many customers complaining that there wasn't anyone to serve them, we have to spend time with people buying or ordering furniture or made to measure curtains etc, his means a member of staff is tied up on a till point for sometimes 30 mins or longer sometimes, people want help with wallpaper, or fashion / fitting room, and I know that sales are lost because people sometimes just will not wait. Quality of staff is not good either, paying the minimum wage to sales assistants will not ensure there are high quality people working in the stores, and they soon move on where someone is paying £1 an hour more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More FULL-TIME staff for every branch. Running the stores on a shoe-string is a false economy as the more staff you have the more sales you will achieve, and it becomes self-funding in the long term. Staff will also not feel as if they are 'run-ragged' all the time, and should make for a happier work-force. Also, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys, and this is true up to a point. Paying a higher rate of pay than most on the High Street, will mean that they get their pick of the high calibre people looking to move to a better employer, paying the minimum wage will not entice decent people away from other firms to come and work for Laura Ashley, you will only get those people who cannot get a job elsewhere.
    The best sales teams will achieve higher sales for the company, and more profit long term. They have a lovely product, but some of the staff are so not the Laura Ashley image, not well presented or well spoken. To maintain a high profile among the High Street, they need to ensure they have the best staff, and have a good reputation of paying well, so that good people will WANT to come and work for them!!!
     Laura Ashley used to have such a GOOD NAME, but not any more. They have always got a Sale on, and people know this, so will wait for things to be marked down. They should stick to just TWO proper Sales per year, which will be more impactful, and will not make the Brand seem like a 'Bargain Basement' type of company who can't sell things at the normal recommended price. The staff are always tied up putting signs in the window, putting stickers on stock, then taking the stickers off again a few days later... such a waste of time!!! (and so boring for the staff) Stop all these mini-sales mid season, have a proper Sale twice a year - like Harrods does. Don't cheapen the Brand, pay the staff well and they will love working for you. As things are at present, they have a massive staff turnover, especially Branch Management.. that must tell them something???
    I would not have left if things had been different, I always felt as if I needed a meeting with he Directors to tell them where they were going wrong!! Such a shame..
