      Pros

      Free uniform, great discount, being part of a fashion forward business.

      Cons

      Need to be flexible as to support the business needs. Too many different opinions on different aspects of the store can cause extended workload for teams and can be frustrating. Not enough hours in a day. 😕

      Pros

      Flexible working hours and shifts, good staff discounts, 75% off on jeans and 30% off the rest when I worked there for two years.

      Cons

      Not always guaranteed to leave on time at the end of day shifts until every inch of the shop is clean. The management (supervisors) can sometimes be a bit rude and disrespectful.
