      Fun workplace, unreasonable expectations and poor management

      Pros

      Fun and fast paced working environment Great team Decent discount

      Cons

      If you are not management then it's rare you'll get more than 10 hours per week Hire way too many staff for Christmas and therefore severely cuts everyone's hours Very unrealistic expectations for KPIs, particularly when staff cannot do anything about foot traffic - led to management 'having talks' if KPIs were not met KPI expectations remained the same despite COVID-19 significantly decreasing shopping center foot traffic If a staff member doesn't perform, then their hours are instantly cut and are not provided with an opportunity to improve Poor management Glaring bias towards particular staff members Staff are usually apprehensive to address any issues they have, out of fear of losing more hours High staff turnover

      Pros

      Good work/ life balance. Once I left the office for the day, that was it. Small team and really friendly culture. JD Was only starting out in Australia, so everyday was interesting and had a new challenge to face. It was a really good introduction to Australian retail and a fast growing business. Staff discount was good from memory.

      Cons

      No cons to speak of really. There was plenty of pressure to succeed and that did get to some team members.
