    I worked at Hamleys

    Pros

    Getting to work with kids all day is rewarding, especially finding them their perfect toy. Making a child's day and being a fond memory for them is lovely.

    Cons

    Management is awful; sits in office all day. small contracts loads of over time. Targeted on things like customers buying wrapping paper and over priced batteries. Expected to do things higher than your job description and what you are paid for. Make you do things even with doctors notes to say you cannot.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the staff you have.
