Great people to work with, processes and management were the difficult parts, high expectations were set with no progression or reward. Hard to have a lunch

Cons

Long hours big expectations

No proper training provided

I worked for Amart for approximately 6 months. During that time I was given about 2 or 3 four hour shifts a week to start with. Then I had 1 four hour shift per week. I do not consider that sufficient training considering the very complicated systems they used. Most people were friendly and helpful but the General Manager spoke down to everyone as if they were stupid.

Pros

Staff discounts

Cons

Serious lack of training

Extremely stressful. Great for people who care more about making money than human beings.

Great for people who have the gift of of the gab, can be very persuasive and manipulative to get their own way to make the big bucks and have a photographic memory. Not good for people who don't remember things easily, takes awhile to learn things and generally care about their customers.

Pros

Some nice helpful employees. Lovely customers.

Cons

Very demanding, stressful & unrealistic expectations.

Good timesn

We were a really nice team. Made some great life long friends here. It was challenging but we all did it united and conquered the day and weeks ahead. It is a shame that they don’t offer full time basis. Would help the staff.

Great place to work!

Working at Amart means that every single day is fast paced, challenging and fun! I love being surrounded by people who constantly want to try new ideas and are open to feedback. I'm challenged to think outside of the box and to always be thinking about my team and our customers. Things happen quickly at Amart - so you have to love change and be open to new things. Everyone I've met in the business is so passionate about their role and the company, and it makes me so proud to wake up and come to work each day.

Pros

Discount on products

Great salary, leaves a lot to be desired for work life balance

Working hours regularly more than time spent at home, expectations that managers start an hour and a half before their rostered times and finishing at least half an hour after rostered finish times. Care given to team in regards to family/work balance is minimal. Great benefits in salary and commission, upper management are generally hard to deal with. Company is set in it's ways.

Pros

Salary above regular expected retail wages

Cons

Hours worked for management are borderline/illegal, no compensatio or TIL paid for extra hours worked

Overall it's a good place to work

At times you feel like banging your head against a wall with the work load but knowing management are behind you and staff will help when they can, you know you make it through the day.

Enjoyed helping setup the Bankstown store

Hard work but great people. Great benefits. What I learned was some more aspects of sales The hardest part of the job was the long hours The best part was when the store officially opened and being involved in the doorbuster promotions.

Production

Was ok but need work at management level so that the employees were more aware of the work needed to be done. Needed work with single mums not being able to work every weekend.

Fun Place to work

Great place with plenty of opportunity for advancement....The work environment was very family friendly with rotating Thursday night and weekends. The hardest part was the morning clean.

Great Bunch of people to work with

Super Amart is a great place to work, the people become like family. Great management. The only thing I found was there was no work/life balance you work 7 days on with 2 of.

Managed by people who have no idea how to manage, no qualificatons.

I dont recommend working there as managers have no idea how to manage people. The rules change depending on who you are. No one is completely happy working in the stores as the Regional Manager is a complete bi polar split personality phsyco path.
