    I worked at JD Sports Fashion full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Staff discount, international opportunities

    Cons

    Honestly the worst corporate culture of any retailer I have worked for. They don’t let staff charge there phones in the store and make their staff rooms small and miserable. The communication from area managers loss control and other HO departments is negative, unhelpful and often downright rude. Managers are expected to work both days over the weekend as well as covering 6-7 days when another manager is on holiday.

    The fact the store was located near a Greggs, not that you get chance to eat it that is.

    - Ridiculous shifts, late finishes constantly. - No enthusiasm from other staff, all just there for a laugh and joke. - Constant ridiculous, un-achievable targets. - 'Too many sheriffs, not enough indians' - Poor pay.
