    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Platypus Shoes part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wear what you want, express your individuality, make friends, good store discounts

    Cons

    A personal budget every day on shift and they really pressure you to improve your KPIs, if youre trying your 100% best, theyll keep pressuring you! but its all done with love mostly. Getting sales can be quite luck based as well so sometimes it feels like its not your fault youre doing poorly but you do feel bad for it.
