    I worked at Harrods part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Relatively high salary considering the job role did not involve much, good location, good working hours, management was nice

    Cons

    People i worked with were quite unpleasant, it seemed that they took out all their frustrations on me, i was the only male team member and felt intimated by some members of staff. i was often spoken down to and made to feel as if i was below other members of staff. People that work there are arrogant and stuck up, working environment is extremely unpleasant. i wouldn't recommend working there.
