    I have been working at Honey Birdette part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    • DISCOUNT! 40%! • Amazing employees and managers. • Always something to do - Never bored • If you know your toys youre in for a breeze! If not... You're a little screwed! • Very welcoming company. • Always feel appreciated. • Get to wear sexy lingerie all day, talk about sex, and play with toys. • Amazing, friendly customers.

    Cons

    • Feet get tired wearing heels all day. • Some real creepy men come in asking for sex/try on lingerie for them. • If you're not comfortable seeing breasts and bums all day, this is not the job for you.

    I worked at Honey Birdette part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lovely coworkers! Pay was rather good I got to make women feel beautiful

    Cons

    The company is in shambles tbh, the owner Eloise jumped ship and then the new CEO quit not long after. We had no area manager and no state manager for most of my time there and the state manager quit after 3 months, yikes. Also they have only JUST gotten a HR department. You're forced to sell cheap product for luxury prices and not tell customers about all the faulty product that comes in all the time. I also had problems with my manager who did not know how to do her job whatsoever. Honey Birdette is a sinking ship. Support a better brand.

    I worked at Honey Birdette part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    40% discount on all products (lingerie, bondage, latex, AND toys), great incentives e.g every Christmas they give away several pairs of Loubitons and an international trip to a few girls

    Cons

    You have to wear heels despite being on your feet for up to 10 hours per day, highly competitive because you have few customers and high budgets (that are often too high for stores that aren’t flagships), sexualising workers, if you dont make budget for 3 weeks you’re cut down to one weekday shift, if you aren’t available up to 4 days a week as a CASUAL you could get fired. Casuals can very rarely meet incentives nor win prizes because you have to work a minimum of 5 hours a shift on that day or certain hours a week. So it’s only store managers and 2ICs that can actually win

    I worked at Honey Birdette part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you shift through the catty bullies hard enough there are some genuine team members , i can't think of anything else..maybe getting to dress up for work?

    Cons

    I was so excited too start at Honey Birdette , yet i was quick too realise trading your sanity in exchange for wearing red lipstick and stilettos for hours on end all for minimum wage simply isn't worth it... where do i begin? ALL employees are scared of the higher ups , The stories exchanged during working hours would leave fair trade in an anxiety spiral. I worked my literal butt off for this company , gave my sales too other team memebers so they wouldn't get fired , stayed in extra hours , did excess work outside of office hours studying the crapily made "toys" all too be told how well i was doing one moment then let go without any explanation the next. DO NOT WORK HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I worked at Honey Birdette part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The discounts. The uniform and mastering winged eyeliner.

    Cons

    Where do I even begin? You’re bullied in line, head office sets ridiculously high expectations on not only management, but the causals too. If a store is doing bad, it’s the employees fault, not the actual demographic of people in the area who don’t want to buy. The constant harassment from male customers and the attempted phone sex from men. Not to mention the pressure to wear stilettos and the strain they have on your feet. You’re forced to sell products to people that they don’t need just to hit your impossible daily targets. Girls steal sales and it’s incredibly catty and cutthroat. Upper management bully you and they provide no support. On call hours with little to no time to get ready and the constant worry of fearing your job is on the line.

    I have been working at Honey Birdette for more than a year

    Pros

    40% off as staff discount.

    Cons

    I can’t express to you how much I don’t recommend working for this toxic company. I remember my first week, wide eyed and ready to be inspired, only to go home in tears after most shifts due to blatant disregard for employees. There is no growth opportunity in the company, forget about clawing your way to the top, they will sooner put inexperienced people into high positions than those who spend years dedicating themselves to the company. Never have I ever felt so belittled and made to feel as if I was nothing, while I work so hard 40+ hours a week over Christmas for this company. Favouritism is a huge thing, so if they like you enough they’ll keep you. Have one opinion against them? Forget it. Have an idea or constructive criticism for the company? See ya. Honey Birdette performance ISNT DROPPING DUE TO STAFF, it’s due to the fact that the company is hypocritical (using the “not your valentine” campaign as feminism, yet women are constantly put down in the company) and the designs and material are getting worse due to the fact that you keep firing anyone who breathes the wrong way!! Contracts aren’t taken seriously. They will put you on probation and you’ll do your absolute BEST for the company and as soon as it’s up they let you go. KNOW THAT THIS COMPANY WILL NEVER HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART, NOR WILL THEY EVER PUT THEIR EMPLOYEES BEFORE REVENUE. Employees are disposable. You will be seen as replaceable from the beginning, and poor company performance WILL be blamed on you. Don’t apply for this job unless you want to be scheduling psychologist appointments every week to help with your mental health.
