For each job that I have worked at I have enjoyed the fast paced environments and getting to deal with different consumers and attending their wants and needs. By working in the retail field it has given me confidence and the ability to know what great service is all about. Retail has given me the opportunity to grow and hopefully one day work my way up to management. In retail you will always have good and bad days the best way to deal with this is not take anything personal and keep remaining positive. The best part of retail is getting to meet consumers of all ages and backgrounds and making that personal connection with them. Another thing I enjoyed was the team members I got to work with whom have helped me grow and become more confident in my sales ability and communicating with people.
Management rule by fear, absolutely no recognition for hard work
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 23 April 2019
Worst retail job I've ever had. Upper management treat you like a number and you'll never be praised for anything. Pay is not good considering the amount of work you're expected to do for a low level position. They don't comply with Fair Work so you won't get paid for going to meetings on your day off and you often don't get sick leave paid for weeks.
Everyone suffers together so the casuals and part timers are supportive
Bad pay, bad management, dodgy business dealings, entitled customers
