      Pros

      Harrods staff discount, great to make connections if you seriously consider a career in luxury retail

      Cons

      Workload is dumped on you by your personal shopper and you don’t even get any commission on any work you do.

      Pros

      -Staff discount -Sometimes you have some nice colleagues (though they don't last long as their souls are broken) -Staff sales and freebies occasionally in the staff cafeteria

      Cons

      -Customers are rude and unpleasant (mostly snobby upper-class yummy mummies) -Managers treat you terribly and expect you to perform above and beyond -Managers gossip about everyone -There is staff hierarchy and the higher floors look down on the lower floors (this is prevalent in the cafeteria) -The cafeteria is tiny and if you sit next to people they will practically scowl at you -The better looking you are the more benefits and better treatment you receive

      Pros

      Pay above London living wage, generous discount (including business allowance for clothing), staff canteen and facilities, access to staff discount outside the store, great team mentality

      Cons

      There’s lots of people who’ve been there over 20 years who frequently get away with things (wandering off in the middle of a shift, rudeness to customers) that new employees would get immediately reprimanded for

      Friendly, encouraging, balanced

      Pros

      Friendly, supportive team Great work life balance - flexible 9-5 work times Great company culture - regular team celebrations & treats Up to 50% off staff discount on uniform-approved clothing

      Cons

      Poor communication and lack of direction at times - leading to misunderstandings and confusion. Staff discount can only be used in-store (problematic during the lock down!) and could be quite difficult to secure should the retail staff deem your chosen items not suitable for a discount.
