    -Good place to work if your a student -Covers all areas of retail -Always something to do, so your not just sectioned to do one thing like other high street brands -Good discount for uniform -flexible hours if you have other commitments in life


    -Minimal hours, not substantial for living -Little room for progression -Not enough support or motivation from upper management in head office -The company does not seem to value or respect their employees in the same ways it bends over backwards for their 'Loyal customers' -Lack of communication or training -Poor management

    Good staff discount, decent company to work .


    Management very poor knowledge , no IT skills, make the job itself very complicated when in fact you are just an sales assistant. Avoid South Molton Street (Indian lady Oddette)

    Good wage and flexibility, taken advantage of for kindness

    May 23, 2016 - Team Leader in High Wycombe, England
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    Hourly rate is high, good for students, room to progress with the company, bonuses available if targets are hit, extra holiday time.


    Poor management set up, promises made but never kept, try to cut down costs where possible even if it hinders staff.
