I love working for this company, however prepare for long hours

Store Manager (Current Employee)

ProsEncouraged to speak up and share ideas
Fantastic network of fellow managers for support and spirit-lifting!
Beautiful products, customer engagement and shop floor environment

ConsA lot is demanded from managers and assistant managers. You'll either embrace it (expected to 'run' your business rather than turn up and set up, close down and go) or you'll buckle.
Long hours - expectation is to be present and work at least 30 minutes before and after you're rota'd (and therefore paid) for every day but this is often more.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic about the working hours required of managers/assistant managers and reflect that in the weekly scheduling if you cannot reflect it in pay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: My co-workers were nice and I made some good friends… Cons: Pay rates are deplorably low. They talk a big game about "career development", but the people who don't quit after a week end up working… Advice to Senior Management: There is nothing in place to mitigate the confounding variables that affect employees' sales statistics. If performance reviews (and, thus, wages) are going to be… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
