    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hamleys part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Progression opportunities were achievable. Also, really laid back, fun atmosphere. Got paid to play with toys. Staff were happy and everyone worked well as a team. The training was a great laugh. Lots of games. Felt like a kids birthday party.

    Cons

    Was working at a concession in a department store on the sixth floor, so there were a lot of quiet periods where I had to pace the floor and re arrange shelf displays in order to be doing something, which was pretty mind numbing. Also, my contract I was given had far fewer hours than I said I wanted. Was not allowed to change my contract, or swap with colleagues who wanted the number of hours I had.
