    I have been working at Lovisa part-time

    Pros

    The girls I work with

    Cons

    - terrible pay - upper management does not care about you at all they only care about the money - never enough coverage, we are expected to manage how many people are in the store (government restrictions because of covid) serve customers, do piercings by ourselves and prevent theft. Even when we are getting paid jobkeeper so it’s not costing them anything to roster more of us on - we work 5 hours by ourselves without the 10 minute break we are legally entitled to and a bathroom break - during the pandemic we were working over 5 hours and were entitled to a 45 minute break however our store doesn’t have a back room and there was no where to sit in the centre so we were sitting on the floor to eat our break but upper management got mad at us for eating in store and they told us to eat in our cars, but not all girls have cars and they told us to take it up with the centre management - just the shittest company

    Pros

    The friendships you make as everyone is bonded by the toxic and miserable environment.

    Cons

    The entire company is ruled by fear from the ruthless CEO and a few longterm senior managers who do his bidding. Staff turnover is nuts, its like a revolving door of managers and operation staff in stores. Most people quit quickly, few stay more than 1-2 years. They cant attract any one good from other companies because of the bad reputation, so they fill vacancies with internal applicants who are mostly from stores and dont have the skill set for the job. The Company does not care about employees, you are a number only. Everyone feels on edge and creates a nasty toxic enviornment, with lots of fingerpointing.
