    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

    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.
