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

    Pros

    Great Benefits - discounts on items in the store Great Pay in terms of sales associate roles

    Cons

    Atmosphere was not the best - was in a friendly department (mostly), but knew people who did not enjoy their time there very much, particularly due to the behaviour of permanent staff and management. Canteen food was expensive.

    I worked at Harrods for less than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful, supportive atmosphere and colleagues with really good worker benefits and perks too, even as a temporary sales associate.

    Cons

    Very few cons - perhaps, a little unorganised when hiring their temps but they do this through an agency so it's understandable.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Harrods

    Pros

    You get perks like staff discount 33%, as do the permanent sales associate. You get christmas gifts, mostly foods from their famous Foodhall department. Their canteen is excellent, so many foods to choose from. There's a muslim praying room near the canteen upstairs. Beautiful work venue, every department is beautiful.

    Cons

    Some of the management are understanding and some are not. You can see biased in how they treat the associate, unfortunately, sometimes based on looks.
