Not Too Bad But Minimum Wage and Terrible Regional Management
Part Time Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Rockdale NSW – 14 October 2018
Work was okay here, keep in mind its a slightly dying brand so wages are at minimum and the stores get very quiet during weekdays. The vibe of Jeanswest differs from store to store however. Most team members are very friendly and managers of the store are OK. Regional managers however, will walk in whenever they please and start telling you off before they introduce themselves. I pride myself in being a hard, diligent worker, and one regional manager I had did not recognise my work at all and made me want to quit. I was a part-timer and I was guaranteed 6 hours a week. These were 3 hour shifts. As an 18 year old I was getting minimum wage, which if you google, is very little. So being part time does NOT mean you will get decent hours. The one of the only decent things about working here was the discount you got on JW products.
So in my opinion, if you want to work at JW, prepare to not be super entertained as the work gets quite repetitive and boring, prepare to be bossed around and getting a lot of customer returns.
If you are a younger person wanting to start in retail, I do not recommend this store.
dying brand, customer complaints and returns, slow days during the week
