    I worked at Seed Heritage part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Staff discount 30-50% (new stock gets 50%) Co workers are friendly

    Cons

    Managers think they have authority to be rude and abusive Pay is very low Stressful environment We were told there’s incentives however I have never received one.

    Advice to Management

    Overall my co workers were extremely nice and welcoming. The hours were really flexible and good however I have had many retail jobs and this one is by far the worst. The manager was extremely rude and very abusive towards me and other employees in front of me. We were given daily budgets (which by the way isn’t in the contract) and if they were not met we were belittled and blamed for not hitting budget even though...

    I worked at Seed Heritage part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The customers are pleasant most of the time (however, greatly dependant on location) - The non-management sales assistants are all easy going. - High expectations regarding visual merchandising & customer service delivery. - Has a good reputation among the public. - Most store managers are professional and easy to work with. - Generous 50% employee discount. Overall, most of the time it was a pleasant...

    Cons

    - Paid minimum retail award wage. - No clothing allowance (surprising, considering the price of clothes & the expectation to have new outfits every single month) - Gift card is only given if all KPIs (wages allocation, multi rate, budget) are hit. If budget is hit, but the manager exceeds the wage allocation, the entire store is penalised and is deprived of getting rewarded via gift card. - Some new employees...

    Advice to Management

    - Ensure consistent training across all stores. Either cluster managers or HR need to ensure that store managers are fulfilling their job title. - Don't expect your sales assistants to be head to toe in current product if there is no clothing allowance given. - Not giving an employee 3 days off during a ‘blackout’ period for religious reasons is discriminatory. - Some managers need to be trained in HR! Some unprofessional...

    I worked at Seed Heritage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Clothing discount Loved the staff I worked with

    Cons

    Manager was psychotic and rude Area manager didn’t listen to staff feedback Sub par salary Expected to work over 38 hours every week with no overtime

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff when they come to you with issues and concerns regarding the business. Train your management on how to communicate with the team some are super rude and come across condescending and belittling. If there is a high turnover of staff that work with a certain manager and you’re aware of it don’t just ignore it, make changes! Just because a manager gets things done doesn’t mean they are a good manager.
