    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.

    Pros

    Good staff discount throughout store and online.

    Cons

    The experience depends very much on who your managers are and their personal strengths. Some are organised and very hands on and will give you credit for your work, others are rarely on the shop floor and not so well organised.
