Very fun workplace always happy and plenty of work to do
Really nice environment to work in . Staff were friendly and everyone was lovely . Loved seeing the happiness on the children’s faces and ear piercing was my favourite thing about my job

Worst company to work for
Huge stress levels placed on staff. Constantly underpay their staff- multiple times my paycheck was missing at least 8 hours- twice I was not paid at all and had to wait two weeks for my paycheck. No pay rise for supervisors with 10x as much work and responsibility. District managers placed huge stress on managers which cascaded down to sales assistants who were punished with less hours if not 'performing well enough.' Overall not a great company to work for.

Catty and childish
Typical day involves cleaning, merchandising and replenishing the shop floor. You learn how to do ear piercings and nose piercings. It is mandatory for staff to be trained so if you are against piercing or do not want to pierce customers, this won’t be the job for you. Full training is provided however and it is not difficult. You have to make yourself busy or, seem busy at all times. There is a zero slacking tolerance. Upper management are quite strict and there are hourly, daily and weekly targets that have to be met. Failure to do this leads in disciplinary action/cut of hours etc. The job itself is not difficult and the wage is good for what the job entails. The only negative thing I can say about my experience is I don’t feel that the team worked well together. They were hired in a rush and should’ve honestly been let go before their probation was up. It turned into a very catty, nasty environment (how you would stereotypically think it was to work there) mean girls vibes. Too childish and draining for any adult to be involved in in a workplace.

4 hour contracts!
Was available to work full time, but was given 4-8 hours a week. They claimed they did not have enough hours. However we had 10 other staff members in one tiny shop, who were all given 4 hour contracts. Apparently this was done, so they do not need to give us holiday pay
