I had a fantastic team
Stores need to be supplied stock for the size of the store. Higher management need to listen when it comes to what stores need.
Stores that are showing a loss, regionals need to pass feedback on as to what their store managers are saying about the issues.
Cons
Over stocked store. Graded to high for a small store

the fish rots from the head down
This was an iconic Australian brand until Noni B bought it and turned it into a high volume very low quality product. The most bullying company I have ever work for. Very unreasonable expectations to perform enormous workloads. No lunch breaks on Sunday shifts or public holidays when working alone in small stores. Had to urinate in a bucket out back on several occasions because you can't get the store closed in time to get to the bathroom. Got 5 minutes notice of redundancy when they decided to cut all assistant store manager roles across all brands. thanks for nothing

Extremely stressful
Always treated like a number and pushed to do outrageous tasks
Constant store changes, average 2 a day and always expected when your on your own

Company has no idea on how to work with customers

Very difficult to enjoy your day

micromanagement and poor ethics towards staff
This was a wonderful company to work for when owned by pretty girl fashion group. Working for Rockmans was my dream job because I had been wearing the brand since 1979. I learned how to run a busy store, roster the staff, merchandise the stock and juggle huge workloads. The management was positive and supportive. Then NoniB took over and the micromanaging and bullying began. Constant VM changes meant redoing the shop sometimes twice a day. Staff cuts meant working up to 12 hours a day to get the stock unpacked and on the floor. We struggled with bad internet connections for 18 months because the IT department would not spend $15 postage on a new cable. We were expected to drive to office works in our own time to buy one

Staff members were great
I worked for 5months in this store except for the two staff members I worked with that were great. The Manager is a Vile woman. And has no compassion for her staff, or the store, let alone customers. I can not work somewhere where the manager is so rude to customers.
I left due to not enough hours.

Never got to have break. But Manager always wondering off.
Pros
Good staff discount
Cons
Manager was foul

Fast paced and team oriented workplace
A typical day at work included customer service, restocking, cleaning duties and facing the store. It was a very beneficial working environment, as it provided experience within retail, KPIs targets and customer service training. The workplace and staff were always friendly and through the shift there was lighthearted banter to keep up a friendly and inviting space for customers and staff alike. The most enjoyable parts of the job was both the customer service aspects and working in a retail role (clothing).
Pros
Multiple weekly shifts, friendly and energetic workplace
Cons
Sporadic working hours

Use to be great, morale so very low
I had a great experience at Rockmans and advanced quickly to Assistant Manager and Store Manager with promises to go further. Noni B group took over and it became a nightmare. Stock levels out of control and no end in sight. They just pile it on every week. Back rooms overstocked. Falls on deaf ears. Stock quality gone downhill, so patterned and cheap material and hard to sell. Sales pressure through the roof and no tasks between 10am-3pm everyday (when do you do your stock and other tasks?). Sometimes no tasks at all. It's impossible and unachievable. They expect the world and give nothing in return. Bonuses almost impossible to get and you only hear from management when you are doing badly. Do yourself a favour and do not work here. You will stress out and not want to get out of bed in the morning.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Productive and fun environment
Unpacking boxes and merchandising. Helping customers with clothes and sizing. The people there are amazing and the customer service is exceptional. the hardest part of the job is adding on to the clothes when customers only want one thing.
Pros
Great Team Members
Cons
Warehouse Shipments

Not a bad place to work.
If I didn't end up traveling I would probably still be here. Although it was challenging and sometimes tricky with customers, what retail place isn't?
My manager was lovely and very understanding and helpful. The work itself was pretty straight forward and very flexible.
Pros
Located near good food and drinks, great staff, easy going
Cons
Could be tricky with no free parking and long shifts

Rockmans
I have worked at quite a few Rockman store in Queensland over the years. I have always found the Manager and staff very easy to work with and making your work day enjoyable and fun.
The customer interaction I received while working in the stores was the best part of the day.

When new stock came in it was interesting and enjoyable to view the new stock and move the old "story" over and new 1 in.

I am still friends with a lot of my past work mates and managers and actually have 2 past managers as refers.

Learning new jobs and how the visual merchandising was conducted was also a excellent part of my day.
Pros
Discount on clothing
Cons
Rearranging shelfs

Great Environment to be working in the fashion industry
I enjoyed great days at work with great team members and a lovely environment to be working in. Great management, very considerate, understanding and extremely helpful and supportive in learning new skills within the fashion industry.
Work load was what was expected of you and coped very well. Not pushed into work overload.

Thoroughly enjoyed the customer contact and the one on one customer service I could provide. Loved having my regular customers returning consistently to view new fashions each week.

Great position.
Pros
Reasonable hours
Cons
considerate flexbility
