Okay for a short time

Customer Assistant (Former Employee)
Manchester, England (UK)

ProsFriendly staff easy to get along with.Discount is good but can mean you spend a lot of your wages back in store if you love make up and products..

ConsManagement are mostly unsympathetic and impersonal,hours are rubbish unless you have absolutely nothing else going on in your life.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat staff as fodder. Give people more reasonable houra rather than having everyome on four hour shifts just because it's better for the company. When someone's father dies don't ask "so I can expect you in a few days after the funeral?"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
