    perfectly ok place to work but nothing special

    Pros

    it was a job that paid my rent, the other staff were nice and I got a discount but the clothes were still quite unaffordable on the salary.

    Cons

    no 'extras' or training, and we were pushed to sell sell sell. The shifts were generally 4 hours so they didnt have to waste time giving us a break, which meant it wasnt great when you compare the amount earned and the travel to work and days to do other things.

    Lovely staff, good discount, nice customers and nic e location

    Cons

    Long trading hours, no appreciation, Hobbs do not value their loyal workers; I decided to leave them. Targets are very high and company expects you to work more for less.

    Pros

    You will receive a generous staff discount, personal and for friends and family. Progression is entirely up to you. If you work hard, you will succeed.

    Cons

    As in most retail companies the salary is not great. Receiving commission depends on reaching sales targets, which is not achievable every month.
