    Pros

    Great team morale Lovely products Opportunity for development when under the right manager

    Cons

    Certain long-standing managers are protected, even when they treat employees appallingly and contribute nothing to store operation or success. Unfortunately this company is beginning to suffer the strain that a lot of highstreet retailers are encountering Pay isn't great for an ASM

    Advice to Management

    Realise that protecting that one bad egg will eventually be detrimental to the company reputation

    I have been working at Paperchase Products full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ever changing. No two days are the same. There's always something to do but you also still get time to talk to customers. You have the freedom to create a great atmosphere in your store the way you want to.

    Cons

    Deadlines can be quite tight and workload heavy with communication from head office sudden.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to other managers and never be afraid to ask for help. Chances are someone else is going through or has been the same thing.

    I have been working at Paperchase Products full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great products, discount amazing, friendly and fun, always learning and great customers and loyalty, mostly great support from area managers they are trying and listening to staff in ways they can improve which they never really used too.

    Cons

    Workload can be heavy with time frames to complete short, always expecting us to have an answer if figures are down but even when we are doing our best it's really out of control but they won't have that which can bring moral down.

    Advice to Management

    Don't go mental if something hasn't been handed in on-time or due in there is no need for it

    Pros

    Team Discount Fast paced Stock is constantly coming in and new and exciting For the most great customers Great brand Encouragement to be yourself

    Cons

    Area manager - make loads of money and work really hard to do so then comes in and complains despite smashing targets. Assumes any success is down to Store Manager when it's also the team working incredibly hard and ASM. You compromise on spare time, breaks, overtime, paying for incentives to achieve out of your own pocket and never appreciated. Just act like you're a number. Head office also can't make there... mind up and send through constant emails to recall stock they've not checked properly or isn't adequate.

    Advice to Management

    Management great. Area manager needs to understand what challenges you're up against and that you are a person and not just a number.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Paperchase Products full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    50% Discount, interaction with head office, great working team, brilliant product, chance to experience head office and other stores if wanted. Mostly excellent higher management, only a few sour grapes... teams in HO always brilliant to talk to.

    Cons

    Everything had to be done yesterday. Towards the end of my employment it seemed that lots of changes at H/ O was causing some confusion so communication was a bit sketchy between stores and HO. Biggest con... having to hand price and hand de - ticket every card with the recalls!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and cherish/ praise those who deserve it more.
