    Pros

    50% off discount on clothing and seasonal free uniform that would match your hours basic contract. Traning with it company very progressive would learn a lot. Maybe option for first job.

    Cons

    Not great pay. Salary could match normal sale advisors satff in other companies. Hard to get raise as company doesn't do yearly performance reviews. Only reviews that are going on are the under performance one. Sale advisors are mostly unhappy about pay 17 years old are under minimum wage at 7.16€ an hour or 18 to 19 years old at 8€ is very low pay and small contracts starting at 8 hours required to be fully flexible. For the expectations the pay is so bad. Very toxic place to work with unhappy staff about pay selling over priced clothing hard to manage and except amazing work when they are being paid less then minimum wage at times.
