Featured Review

Former Employee - Supervisor

I worked at Harrods full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

So cosmopolitan,diverse and above all a cracking social life.Very friendly people and staff were well looked after. Cannot complain. The mid eighties to early nineties was a brilliant time to be in... London.

Cons

Off the top of my head i cannot think of one con. I really had a great time and worked in various departments gaining a lot of experience for which i will always be grateful.

Advice to Management

More parties. Every friday evening before heading to the George pub we used to have drinks and pringles in the department. I suppose that is taboo now.

Current Employee - Junior Recruiter

I have been working at Hays full-time

Pros

Cons

I have no cons to note.
