    I worked at The Just Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow if wanted

    Cons

    Very high school culture that doesn't feel supportive at all. Also if you want to resign depending on your role the notice you have to give can go from 2 months to 1 year its ridiculous.

    I worked at The Just Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Quit trying to cut corners, many staff are unhappy and they are the faces of the brand to your customers.

    I worked at The Just Group

    Pros

    - Meet a lot of lovely and passionate people - Incentives give you opportunity to get free items (rarely though)

    Cons

    - Crazy amount of work load, usually without support of anyone else around you. Very often a "why didnt you do this, this and this - plus this? Oh you were focusing on meeting crazy-high KPI expectations? Learn to multitask." - A lot of blame passed around when sales are low and very little appreciation for hard work and results. - Usually by yourself on the shop floor (like seriously..unless you are the top 2 stores...
