    I worked at House of Fraser part-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed the freedom of working on a shop floor with people I liked with products I believed in it.

    Cons

    It's just a very standard retail job. It can be boring and unfulfilling on a slow day, but go incredibly quickly on a very busy one.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that the most important piece of advice I could give to management would be to look after your best talent. There is too much turnover.
