I have been working at Claire's Accessories UK full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Easy progression if your a supervisor who works hard. 50% off stock Promoting our brand in dress up can be fun Close knit team

Cons

Only getting paid for 40 even tho you can often work 50 hrs a week skeleton staff,regardless of store turnover. Ear piercing weeks are mayhem with no staff, customers end up very disgruntled. working 14 days over Christmas with 1 day off is exhausting staff have 4 hour contracts & don't stick around for long Re training new staff without extra hours Plano-gram & complete re merch of the store every 13 weeks salary not very enticing

Advice to Management

Focus on supporting your teams who work hard, stay late & sleep eat & breathe claire's for results. Reward/praise the teams that do well instead of naming & shaming stores that don't. More hours would be more profitable to the company

    I have been working at Claire's Accessories UK (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    50% discount on most merchandise

    Cons

    long hours with no breaks, advancement is almost impossible at a certain point, promotions given to not the hardest workers or best performers, but the ones who kiss the most district manager butt.


  2. Work alone and make hardly anything

    Pros

    If your a manager you get earned sick time, religious, personal and vacation pay.

    Cons

    You are required to get so much done in so little time. You are viewed as replaceable even after 7 years of being there. Your not valued what so ever. This is a national problem not just my area. I came from other states with different dms and rsm. They give no payroll to help get task done. You have to service customers do plano markdowns and clean with no help and god forbid a corp person walks in and u are doing task..u get chewed out cause customers should be more important yet if they walk in and no work is done then ur also getting yelled at

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Pay them more or give more payroll to lighten the load.
