    I worked at New Look part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A pretty fun work environment to be in ! I was only part time and work there for a short time, but the staff were very fun and easy work with. Also the staff discount was fantasic !!!

    Cons

    Just like with any retail job it is meticulous and can be repetitive, and boring at times. Customers can be a little harsh, especially at younger workers at times.

    I worked at New Look full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - great people, made friends for life - few perks but they stopped April 2019 - never have a boring day or any day the same - pretty good at making sure you left on time but probably won't get a lunch break

    Cons

    The fashion industry and buying in general: - retail industry is struggling and stress levels higher up filtered down through the office - the stress of the job didn't match the pay - never got a lunch break - very competitive, bit cut throat you need to have thick skin and a backbone to survive - due to competitiveness and struggling industry progression was slow
