Don't work here if you want to keep your sanity
Casual Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Melbourne Northern Suburbs VIC – 22 October 2018
I have worked at Valleygirl for 4 months so far, and the more things I learn to do (closing, opening etc.) the more they tend to put me on because I am the only one with full availability, which is great to an extent, not so great if you're the only one working pretty much at all times, especially during the second half of the day.
The store's 'budget' isn't set high enough, therefore there aren't enough hour to keep 2 people on at all times. Not only is that a safety hazard, but also highly exhausting on busy days when customers are rude and leave literal MOUNTAINS of clothes in the change rooms
So far in my time being there, when closing the store alone, I will have to stay back a minimum of an hour and a half each time UNPAID to get everything done for the next day.
Overall if you want to keep your sanity and not have constant panic attacks in the store like I do when I close up and see how much work there is to do, don't even bother applying, it's definitely not worth your efforts.
Decent pay, if you work well Sunday shifts are quite good
Inconsiderate upper management, barely any breaks, no paid overtime, customers leave piles of clothes constantly
