Overall pretty good

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A good group of colleagues however definitely a lack of manager/employee feedback, often felt like I was criticized for not doing something correctly even though they hadn't taught me how to do it. Definitely a "thrown in the deep end" approach to training.

Pros

50% discount

Cons

Lack of communication between managers and staff

Unprofessional management

Management were very rude and unprofessional. High school students who don't need to be paid full are employed more as managers are greedy. Coworkers are rude and competitive, don't make you feel welcome. Not enough guidance and feedback from managers. Very little prospect for promotions, or moving up in the company, despite working hard and performing well.

Pros

Pros: get to indulge in love of fashion

Cons

Short hours, mistreatment by management, rudeness

All the staff and management were great to work with

I really enjoyed working for Just group especially in the Midland store in WA and as a relief worker in the city stores. The Customers always came first. There was always lots to do in the store which was always kept clean and tidy and accessible for all customers. There were lots of learning and safety tutorials and exceptional staff to work along side. I was sad to have to move state and leave.

Poor management

Great place to work for a first job to get your foot in the door for work experience. But management was poorly managed, manger was passive aggressive and there were times I had to work over my shift time without pay. Was also made to feel bad about missing budgets, was told once to buy something with my own money to make budget and was so stressful it made me breakdown and cry. Honestly would not recommend working here.

Pros

First time experience

Cons

Poor management, no further training, favouritism, manipulative and passive aggressive and mentally draining.

Worst company ive ever worked for

Since day one with the Just Group, it has been a horrible experience. I was a store manager, was very unsupported with a very difficult store. There would be weeks on end I wouldn’t see the VM and AM wouldn’t answer the phone. I stepped down to a Casual role and I dread every time I have to do a shift. The gossiping and bullying that happens in this company is disgusting. If your not in the clique then you don’t matter.

Pros

None

Cons

Bullying, can not confide in Area Managers, Gossipy, rude

OK place to work

The work itself is fun, but several management problems. Workplace not always safe and management turned blind eye. Subtle racism at times. Judgemental colleagues.

Retail assistant/asm role

Soul destroying

When management decide they don’t like you, they’ll do anything they can to get rid of you. Horrible work environment if you have a bad team and bad management. I had a manager that would complain about every employee to each employee, then swear non stop calling employees f***ing b*tch’s and other very nasty names! It was absolutely soul destroying!!

Fast paced and productive workplace

Brilliant and fun place to work, you can also pick up shifts at other just group stores eg; Just Jeans and Smiggle. Many opportunities for training and 100% customer focused.

Environment was good and fun at work

Inspect all incoming merchandise and shipping materials, unloading the containers and scanning for Put-away and wrapping the pallets. • Place items in correctly sized crates and containers for shipping to customer destinations. • Accurately complete all paperwork and continuously use wrist and hand scanners to document changes. • Inventory incoming and outgoing items and picking and binning. • Use warehouse equipment such as pallet jacks, and reaches safely

Poor management, pay increase / decrease constantly

Poor management. When I couldn’t do more hours because of personal reasons the manager was not compassionate at all. Made you feel bad if anything. Hired me as a causal then when someone went on holidays , picked up more hours but were MADE to go permanent part time ( less $$ per rate ). Then when they finished using you back onto casual rate working minimum hours. They do this constantly and for them it’s ok to do. They

Doesn’t give worked the opportunity to progress with hours.

The company doesn’t offer enough hours to employees making it difficult to progress with the job or career. Working hours offered are not compatible with life style. Poor management.

Cons

Doesn’t offer enough hours.

Poor management

My job there (in one of the stores) was only for a short time due to the below reasons: Poor management. No proper training. Too much expectation as soon as I started. Unfair treatment and management was picking on every little thing instead of appreciating my hard work. I couldn't even get a drink even when I was entitled to take my 10 min break.Terrible place. I felt so unhappy.They tried to cover up the terrible attitude by picking on tiny things while I was still learning. Often had to stay back without pay but there was no appreciation. Resigned because of the stress I had suffered.

Pros

Place to learn

Cons

Average wage

not the best

No work/life balance. Will work you to the bone and provide no support. Better paying jobs out there with support and less stress. They do not live up to their own "people culture"

Pros

none

Cons

everything
