    I have been working at Kurt Geiger for less than a year

    Pros

    The experience has helped me to learn perseverance.

    Cons

    Management does not care about employees, protocol is not adhered to, and the employee is punished for following said protocols that are set in place by the company. You are made to feel bad for not attending work if you are genuinely sick and/or have decided to leave the company. Your hard working efforts are looked over and all that is looked at are figures to targets without a thought of what the employee has experienced. You are spoken down to by customers and are made to feel that you are lowest of the low and have no right to retaliate as “the customer is always right”. You are lied to by management and are given responsibility that isn’t even in your contract yet are scolded when not adheres too by management.

    I have been working at Kurt Geiger part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free uniform shoes but apart from that nothing

    Cons

    The company is so poorly organised. They expect so much from staff but give staff so little in return. Management is terrible and really couldn’t care less about staff. I haven’t been paid this month by this company (despite working for them for the past 6 weeks) and they haven’t done anything to sort it other than tell me “you’ll receive your money next pay day” which is ridiculous. The company cares so little about staff that I currently am extremely unwell with a bug and I am being forced to come into work as they “can’t find cover for my shift”. I have worked it retail and hospitality for many years and have never been forced into work when ill. They have an absolute cheek to tell me I can’t be off sick when they haven’t even bothered there arses to pay me.

    Money making machine, no real value for employees. Turnover is crazy, have seen so many people leave the company. Senior manager can’t even be bothered to greet her employees when they do the same
