I would typically work a four hour shift in Topshop. Each hour my role or position on the shop would change. I learned how to deal politely and helpfully with customers. I was till trained and learned opening and closing procedures. The management and my fellow workers were very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job was dealing with complicated returns or unsatisfied customers.
Pros
As a part-time worker my longest shift was only four hours.
Cons
Part-time contracts are non felxible

Fast paced and erratic. Constant chopping and changing of things within the store as well as in the company, on a regular basis. No two days are the same.

Working for the Arcadia group was both stressful & enjoyable. I worked with a great team who understood their roles in the team & worked hard to achieve sales goals & targets that were set. Working in the fashion industry was also very rewarding with staff perks such as discount on the latest clothes! I went from working full time to part time & the company were very accommodating.

Management is a joke. Was left to close shop on my second day with very little training. Manager always finding something wrong and is a bully. Did not stay long there because of this and neither are other staff members. Something needs to be done about management as there is a high staff turn over in this store.

Manager of this section at this store is a bully.

A bully that needs to be fired. Horrible manager.


Pure evil and childish.

That’s about it.
Pros

Didn't stay long, management is a joke, i was spoken to very rudely on multiple occasions. Desperately needs new management as i even witnessed the manager being very rude to multiple customers. Hours are very bad (4 hour daily shifts) and minimum wage. Overall felt very picked on and belittled, wouldnt recommend. Only positive was the other two lovely girls that were there.
Cons
Bad management

Very poor management. I was being bullied. Practically pushed out door.
Definitely need to improve the manager at this store. A lot of people left soon after me and more are currently leaving.


One thing I’ve learned - stand up for yourself!

I learned how valuable customers are and how much the company relies on them and their own staff. The workplace culture was as you expected, it was also fun and enjoyable. Management were friendly, organised and productive.

Management in this store is very hard to work with. There were days when I dreaded going in even with such a great team to work with.
Expectations keep growing even though staff decreases and support lessens. As a part time job it's a good experience as retail will toughen you up!

It's also frowned upon to be ill. So don't get sick while you work here.
Pros
Other staff
Cons
Intimidating Management. Excessive expectations that keep increasing. No payrise.

Working in Topshop/Topman Jervis is a fun experience.
Long days or nights working on your feet are made feel easier with the good unity of staff.

The store has been a home for me for 5 years, and I have never felt anything, but welcome.

Through the years I have learned so much about helping not only the customer in need, but also, the co-worker in their difficulties.

Most days are spent making sure the shop floor is available to reach all targets.
Pros
Working in the city centre.
Cons
Long days working on your feet. Working over the Christmas holidays.

As in retail, its a typical day at work. Customer service has to be 100%. Mostly enjoyable because of working with public. In all retail its target orientated and management has to set a good example

We had a team of 20 staff, we always worked together as a team to get tasks done on time. We had great discount of 25%. We had training nights with pizza and sweets to make it a bit more fun whilst training. Christmas nights out were lovely to see everyone happy together having fun. We got deliveries 4 times a week it was always exciting seeing new stock coming in and having banter with customers.We had a lot of regular customers they were lovely.
Pros
Training was excellent/ discount 25%
Cons
No actual security man on site

As a sales assistant, I have excellent experience with customer service and selling techniques. I worked against targets and KPI's, which help motivate myself and the team to achieve goals. I worked against incentives too, which would include personal targets and sale figures.

I wold approach every customer and ask if they needed any guidance with finding clothes or sizes. I would offer them my advice and create an outfit for them. I would always compliment customers. I am fully till trained, can do stock take, transfers, price changes, store accounting, sale launch and many more tasks.
