    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.

    Managers are friendly and helpful, always looking to help you out the best you can. The team is friendly and work well together.
