Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tokyo (Japan)

I worked at Uniqlo full-time for more than a year

Pros

Made some good friends and contacts. Learned how to merchandise color. Traveled to the US and UK for market research. Had the opportunity to work with people outside of the company.

Cons

Countless revisions and sometimes awkward employee rules that apply to the headquarters. For example since the retail employees have to work on a national holiday so do the regular employees in the headquarters.

    I have been working at Uniqlo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - 30% staff discount also on promotion items
    - nice team
    - you can actually learn more than average sales advisor jobs
    - multitasking. From tills to alterations, you must be able to do everything.

    Cons

    - unhealthy place to work in (often dirty/dusty)
    - extreme shifts hours (7 am- 11 pm)
    - forced to do overtime till late night (also 1 am!!!)
    - low pay
    - high turnover (people simply get tired and go away)
    - sometimes very rude managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire cleaners! Shops are dirty because sales advisors AREN'T PROFESSIONAL CLEANERS!!! Also, they don't give you the right tools (hoover always broken, no dusters, no gloves and so on).

    Current Employee - UMC Candidate  in  Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    I have been working at Uniqlo as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good clear promotion ladder!!! As long as you can show your potential of learning and adopting into Japanese Culture well. This shall be your desired Japanese company.

    Cons

    Didn't have a good training program and didn't have specific well noticed resources invested on store practice training program, and of which takes a long time, like few months, before real offer made. quite a badly paid job before the offer has been made and consider it as full time program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shall put more afford on training Uniqlo Store Manager Trainee on organising tasks! instead of purely learning from operation duties where a real talented candidate couldn't use his talent on advising improvements. At the end, according to the store manager, by investing around USD150,000 on training one UMC, in the way of put more focus on UMC would make the investment worth!
