    I have been working at General Pants Group part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Your team (as in most retail roles) really make the the job worth it. And by team i mean like, your whole area. Great vibe and supportive environment, they look after you and the discount is more than worth it.

    Cons

    You really have to make the role your own. Some people might struggle with this but if you do a good job, it is recognised.

    I have been working at General Pants Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really fun to work for Great team environment Really stylish clothes Good discount

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations: they give you high targets, high customer service expectations but also a high workload. The company has recently cut down on hours so they expect you to work less hours and achieve more. It can be exhausting. Unpaid mandatory meetings Unpaid mandatory online training They use a lot of plastic as every item is packaged with a plastic bag individually

    I worked at General Pants Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Get paid on time, nice co workers

    Cons

    I'm not sure if this is the culture for just the franchise I worked in or if this is all but I have experienced a lot of workplace discrimination from the management team. (It is a white-dominated workplace) Having snarky comments made at you for your race isn't acceptable. I can see a distinct difference of how I am treated compared to a non-ethnic co-worker, when I ask questions they are disregarded and ignored. There is little to no training, you are just chucked onto floor and that is it. The whole system that this company runs in is a mess! If you want to be in a environment where you must forcefully interact and convince customers to purchase something (leaving both parties uncomfortable) feel free to work here. They want you to be unique and different in terms of customer service but it all seems so fake and ingenuine. Management also likes to compare the company itself with other retail competitors and put them down!
