    Pros

    Max was a good company to work for a brand that I loved so naturally enjoyed selling for.
    All staff employed at my branch where from all walks of life and have created life-long friends - great employment from manager who had to ensure all staff personalites fitted in with each other creating a welcoming friendly enviroment for customers to enjoy.

    Cons

    When change of owner ship happened the family enviroment changed to a more straight face enviroment.

    Pros

    Great discounts (40% off retail), access to fashion products before to the public.
    Pre season viewings provide staff with product knowledge and an oppportunity to meet other staff from throughout the region.
    There is a credit scheme where staff may charge their uniform costs back to their own store credit, this is a scheme that is only available to staff - there is no credit scheme for the public.
    There are also regular customer evenings which allow staff to build stonger relationships with their key customers while being able to share their product knowledge.
    There is strong morale amongst the staff

    Cons

    Poor management and limited support both from within the region and nationwide.
    Poor pay compared with the rest of the industry.
    Staff have to purchase their own uniform out of their pay, they also have to renew their wardrobe every season, with ta 2 week period of crossover after which they can only wear new season stock. This poses a major issue when summer stock comes out in mid winter and winter stock comes out in mid summer.
    There are limited performance appraisals and staff are critiqued on their uniform each day.
    Staff also are expected to work unreasonable weeks, including 12 day fortnights

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what's going on in the regions, talk to the staff as well as the managers
