    I worked at Seed Heritage full-time

    Pros

    Few good people you can interact with.

    Cons

    Bad Management. Cluster Manager demoralised staffs. Never will anyone feel appreciated working here. Even if you are a Manager/ASM u will be ashamed by your Cluster Manager infront of the normal staffs if you did one tiny mistakes. But never thanked you for a job/tasks you have done or given. I can say its SUCKS working here. Always threatened staff and said that we are replaceable.. Even scold vulgarities to staff. Unprofessional!...

    Advice to Management

    Look into this matters! Change your Cluster Manager if you need to. Talk to all your staff the problem they facing through at workplace. Bad Management!

    I worked at Seed Heritage part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The customers are pleasant most of the time (however, greatly dependant on location) - The non-management sales assistants are all easy going. - High expectations regarding visual merchandising & customer service delivery. - Has a good reputation among the public. - Most store managers are professional and easy to work with. - Generous 50% employee discount. Overall, most of the time it was a pleasant...

    Cons

    - Paid minimum retail award wage. - No clothing allowance (surprising, considering the price of clothes & the expectation to have new outfits every single month) - Gift card is only given if all KPIs (wages allocation, multi rate, budget) are hit. If budget is hit, but the manager exceeds the wage allocation, the entire store is penalised and is deprived of getting rewarded via gift card. - Some new employees...

    Advice to Management

    - Ensure consistent training across all stores. Either cluster managers or HR need to ensure that store managers are fulfilling their job title. - Don't expect your sales assistants to be head to toe in current product if there is no clothing allowance given. - Not giving an employee 3 days off during a ‘blackout’ period for religious reasons is discriminatory. - Some managers need to be trained in HR! Some unprofessional...

    I worked at Seed Heritage full-time

    Pros

    1. The team you worked with. 2. As a manager, they showed you how to take care of both departments and showed you how to merchandise the store, which was a great skill to learn.

    Cons

    Where do I start? 1. To managers, it is their way or the highway. There is no room for your opinion, just do as they say. I was the ASM and I still couldn't fit a word in. 2. They are very picky about how you recover the store. If you miss ONE thing, they will continuously pick you up on it. 3. Yes, the discount is good but the clothes are still expensive and the dress code is "Seed only". 4. Such unhealthy gossip!...

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of your team and recognise their efforts. Instead of gossiping behind their backs, take the time to show them how to improve. You have honestly created such a toxic environment.

      Pros

      Clothing discount Loved the staff I worked with

      Cons

      Manager was psychotic and rude Area manager didn’t listen to staff feedback Sub par salary Expected to work over 38 hours every week with no overtime

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your staff when they come to you with issues and concerns regarding the business. Train your management on how to communicate with the team some are super rude and come across condescending and belittling. If there is a high turnover of staff that work with a certain manager and you’re aware of it don’t just ignore it, make changes! Just because a manager gets things done doesn’t mean they are a good manager.

      Some of the clothing, some gorgeous team members

      Cons

      Overtime with no pay, ridiculous expectations bordering on slavery, Upper management are bullies. Disgusting.

      I have been working at Seed Heritage part-time

      Pros

      The team you work with

      Cons

      Higher management blames decreses in sales purely on sales assistants and never question product not being competitive. Any comments from store managers or sales assistants regarding product not meeting customer wants is often ignored and staff are simply told to try harder. OH&S disaster in stock rooms.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your teams, some of your staff have been there for over 10 years... they know your customers at times better than the designers. Believe in them and listen to their concerns.
