      Pros

      Good job for college students, easy to swap shifts, gain more or fewer hours, book holidays and very flexible.

      Cons

      Not great pay ( Don't get minimum wage unless 19 years old and over) You're asked to do a lot for the pay you receive. No commissions or bonuses

      Poor pay

      Pros

      50% off discount on clothing and seasonal free uniform that would match your hours basic contract. Traning with it company very progressive would learn a lot. Maybe option for first job.

      Cons

      Not great pay. Salary could match normal sale advisors satff in other companies. Hard to get raise as company doesn't do yearly performance reviews. Only reviews that are going on are the under performance one. Sale advisors are mostly unhappy about pay 17 years old are under minimum wage at 7.16€ an hour or 18 to 19 years old at 8€ is very low pay and small contracts starting at 8 hours required to be fully flexible. For the expectations the pay is so bad. Very toxic place to work with unhappy staff about pay selling over priced clothing hard to manage and except amazing work when they are being paid less then minimum wage at times.

      Disappointed.

      Pros

      - 40% discount on clothes - the work is relatively easy - no qualifications/experience necessary

      Cons

      - 40% discount is up to a maximum of €300 worth of full priced items per month. Not allowed to let your friends use it. You must say it is for your family if you want to let close friends/partner use your discount. - Most shifts were 4 hours long. I was on 12 hour contract which meant I worked 4 hours each day for 3 days. - Management had clear favourites. I have seen employees get into trouble because the manager didn't like their outfit. Managers and other staff members will talk about you behind your back. - No clear company policies. Management threw the words "company policy" around when it suited them but often contradicted themselves. - Minimum wage. Even at supervisor level it's not any better. -Must BUY clothes to wear to work. While the discount provided is good (enough) when clothes are no longer on the shop floor or go into sale (which happens regularly) you are no longer allowed wear these clothes to work. This means the majority of your wages go back to the company. -Shops often have little or no security and shop lifting is rife
