    I have been working at Uniqlo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Pay Day is every two weeks
    - Coworkers - You can/will make friends!

    -Location is easy to get to next to the one on Newbury Street unlike mall location
    -Call out line - Utilize it when you can't show up for work or go to late
    -Call 2 hrs in advance prior to your shift Don't be an associate who doesn't call/ don't show up for work!late
       *Call 2 hrs in advance prior to your shift Don't be an associate who doesn't call/ don't show up for work!
    - If you want a decent job that pays your bills etc. Not picky about where you will work. Retail is good place to start!

    Cons

    -Paid Time Off is ONLY offered to Full-Time Employees (FTE). It should be offered to part time employees as well.
    -Lack of benefits for especially part-time employees. All of the above are just perks, but not really benefits except the 30% discount

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employee's moods. Feelings. Concerns. Hear them out If they lack energy, inquire what's going on with them, how can you boost their energy and motivation on the job. If they are uncomfortable doing a (certain) task; be flexible. Train new employees thoroughly, make sure they can handle tasks, understand the layout of the store etc. If people called out, replace them by asking people to come in for that day.

    I worked at Uniqlo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Slightly above minimum wage
    - Some of the coworkers are great

    Cons

    - Terrible hours. Actively working eight hours, one and a half hour break, making your shift a total of nine and a half hours + commuting. If you're working that day, you dedicate your entire day to uniqlo, nothing else.
    - Hours are not flexible.
    - Management is messy/ don't know what they're doing
    - 3 hours of training on how to bow and smile in extremely hot warehouse with no water

    Advice to Management

    There's no point in advice because they don't listen to their employees anyways.

    I have been working at Uniqlo part-time

    Pros

    - Good employee discount of 30% off original price and clearance products

    Cons

    - When things aren't going so well, managers will utilise intimidation tactics. Numerous casual employees have been fired due to having availabilities which aren't in line with what managers want, even though flexibility is one of the things given to casual employees.
    - One on one meetings in the manager's office for 'feedback', as well as 'warnings' and 'file notes' are not uncommon. This results in the workplace having a strict and tense atmosphere where you can be fired at any moment.
    - Little praise or positive feedback given to employees.
    - Rostering is very unorganised, as shifts can be shortened or cancelled on extremely short notice (a few hours prior). On other days, employees will be called to come in last minute.
    - Managers have little concern for the wellbeing or work-life balance of their employees.
    - New and even existing staff will take a long time to be trained on everything. Managers and supervisors constantly say that they will train you soon, but in reality they are not really bothered to, even if the store is quiet.
    - Extremely strict on even the simplest of procedures. Managers want you to do things their way and not giving employees much of a say. This means employees are bossed around and treated like children.

    Advice to Management

    Being so results-focused and paying such little attention to the workers themselves leads to miserable employees, which in turn actually ends up reducing productivity. A more people-focused style will significantly change the work environment for the better.
