A small family company going incredibly well
production assistant (Current Employee) – london – October 15, 2012
My work amount was incredible,I was often doing 15 to 18 hours. The business was a women clothing company. We were having as customers big companies as Asos, Topshop, River Island, Debenhams, Next, Lipsy, Miso. All the dresses were being produced in Eastern Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey) and my job was to make sure everything goes smooth. The management style was something like: do as you want, keep the costs low and make sure you don't make any mistakes. The co-workers were from all over the world: South Africa, Japan, Romania, Pakistan, Ghana, Jamaica, Cyprus, Turkey and of course Britain.
The hardest part of the job is the hours I do minimum 250 hours a month and, being a family business where all the key position are held by the owners relatives there were no chances for progress, profesionally .
The most enjoyable part was the fact that I was allowed to set the targets for myself, to choose my own solutions and to learn a lot.
friendly work collegues
every friday i was working minimum 18 hours, no chances for individual development
