Fun workplace with great work life balance
Retail Assistant/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Brisbane Central Business District QLD – 27 November 2018
You do a range of tasks over different departments, it's a fun environment where you make friends with everyone. You have the entire store to walk around, so you'll never feel cramped. You'll hardly feel bored and never lonely.
There's always something to do if you have the initiative to undertake more than the bare minimum.
Management is easy to talk to if you'd like to work in a different area, have a problem with your shift, want to change your availability etc. Very flexible with hours, given a lot of shifts. You choose when you work.
Large tea room, and you choose when you'd like to take your breaks.
There isn't too much favouritism, anyone can be trained to be a manager, all you have to do is ask and put in the work.
Negative is that we've had a huge turnover of managers and staff over the past year. One department manager is a bully who has caused multiple team members and 2 other department managers to quit. And the store morale has greatly decreased. New team members are hired and given zero training, and are put into departments with the expectation of other team members training them.
Other negatives include - dealing with customers (in menswear) of extremely poor hygiene, frustrating theft that occurs all day everyday (though it's fun when you watch and catch them), rare occasions of gross things in the fitting rooms.
Work life balance, freedom
