    I worked at Paperchase Products part-time

    Pros

    Staff discount Other sales assistants are lovely Good colleague culture at sales level Opportunity for managerial progression (although I wouldn't want it here)

    Cons

    Toxic management - your day would be determined by the mood of those in management, and if they were in a bad mood, everyone was in a bad mood. It's like treading on eggshells. Favouritism. Rubbish wages - you'd think such a huge franchise would care more about paying the people who work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, don't take your bad moods out on your staff who are doing all of the hard work for below minimum wage.

  2. "The reality of paperchase"

    I have been working at Paperchase Products

    Pros

    • Good staff discount: 50% off most things • Uniform is very relaxed

    Cons

    • Unreasonably low wage! Nearly minimum wage for sales assistants. No extra pay for London employees either... • Often long hours with unpaid breaks • Management often fault your flaws and fail to refinish good effort • Head Office seem to only care about you issuing loyalty cards and not the service you provide • Everything seems very sloppy and slow: handing out rota shifts to reviving holiday approval.

    Advice to Management

    Simply put, pay your workers more. Even just a small amount. I’ve worked for paperchase for just over a year and see 1 management, 4 supervisor and 7 sales assistant positions leave because they felt undervalued. It meant I had to train new staff and problems arose because of having a team of newly trained staff. My colleagues often feel their job has no value or impact on the business and that despite outstanding efforts,...

    I worked at Paperchase Products

    Pros

    50% staff discount, supportive supervisors and always on your feet

    Cons

    Poor management and understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Try and avoid putting blame on the new and temporary staff on store issues. Re-evaluate the number of staff you place on the shop floor, it's way too little and then you expect for us to complete the set tasks with very little help.

    Cons

    no career growth (unless you went into management) overtime gets paid the next month have to be flexible lots to learn if you are new to retail can be difficult to increase sales by approaching customers etc., can be seen as pushy not many jobs to do that you can push yourself 4 hours straight standing doing simple jobs can be tiring

    Advice to Management

    really good way to do business. not many complaints. perhaps have more jobs avaliable for anybody to keep staff entertained and not get tired on the job. overall paperchase is great!
