I worked at Uniqlo full-time (Less than a year)
Discount, overtime, pto, potential to grow if you speak Japanese or don't mind working 60+ hrs/week, maybe paid travel for new store opening
No functional training, low pay for job expectations, gotta drink the kool aid to be respected/noticed by management, promotion structure doesn't work the way they might hope
Advice to Management
Spend less time hiding in the office and more time on the sales floor truly understanding your business. Solve problems instead of identifying them and passing them off to someone over a walkie talkie. Less chanting, more product knowledge and principles of handling customer complaints. Clarify specific roles and hold everyone to the same standard. Stop exploiting strong employees; either promote them or take their work load down to the same level as their peers.
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Uniqlo.
The process took no longer than 20 minutes. We were interviewed by groups of 3, which wasn't that bad. The HR was nice but also seem to be disinterested which is understandable because they've been hiring and interviewing a lot of people for the season. We were asked about 4-5 basic questions about ourselves, retail experience, and of course why Uniqlo. Just be honest and positive in your answers. Speak with confidence and smile a lot. Show that you actually want to work there. Don't speak for too long. Make sure your answers are short, sweet and too the point. After everything, she said make sure to respond to the email by Tuesday, four days after. Overall, it's not a hard process just be yourself and everything will be okay.
