The company is good to work for, but their Management staff need to improve their relationships with the staff members. A lot of bias actions and clicks in the work place, which makes atmosphere very bad to work in if u are not one of favourites by manager. The company itself takes care of the staff in relation to any problems with health issues ( caused by the worknload). The wage is very small for the reponsibilities that are expected from you. No sick pay, little annual leave. Expect a lot from you on physical level, but no reward for you extra hard work.

I had an amazing few years working in Harry Corry. They are a great company to work for. They will accommodate you wherever possible with work hours. Training is very good. I never had any issues with getting paid and the xmas bonus is always lovely to receive.
No complaints, and would highly recommend.

Nice place to work all the staff were lovely, however a bit pushy when it comes to approaching customers and feel like you’re being watched all the time. Bathroom breaks are strict. Also feels like they focus more on your negatives than your positives. Pay is good.

Relaxed atmosphere, i worked there for 6 months and enjoyed my time there. Friendly management and colleagues.
A typical day would consist of helping customers, in the work floor book you would be assigned a task eg, put away bedding section, iron and put on new arrival bed cover on bed display etc..

I worked here while at college and they were very flexible and understanding re exam time. They have a good sales culture and encourage a 'hunter' mentality. Could do more and offer commissions.

There is a great working environment in the head office working within a team. Everyone is friendly and happy to help each other. You often engage with the directors, buyers and senior management, so you always feel like you are kept in the loop.
Pros
Good working environment
Cons
None

I learned a lot about stock replenishment, staking shelves etc. I learned about the importance of presentation and to not be afraid to use my creative initiative. By working alongside skilled and experienced individuals i expanded my knowledge on curtains, blinds ad measurements regarding these.
Pros
short hours, friendly staff
Cons
felt unsure of what I had to do at times, not very busy at times

When i was working in harry Corry every one was so helpful. I got on with everyone. Its such a relaxing place to work in. I enjoyed every time i went into work. The mangement there are so nice you couldn't ask for better people. The hardest part would of been dealing with unhappy customer. The most enjoyable thing about this job is that you meet different people everyday, new products coming in and obviously the discount you get. When i was leaving it was so sad because everyone was so nice and supportive.
Pros
Discount in shop
Cons
Very short shifts when travelling long distances

I was sad to leave this job as I did really enjoy the tasks and other staff. The manager on the other hand, is awful. She’s rude, speaks down to people (customers included) doesn’t know her job, is extremely petty and makes up her own rules as she goes to which she in no way follows.
I would avoid avoid avoid, especially if you are young or inexperienced in dealing with bully’s.

Harry Corry was a great place to work for a long time but it changed quite quickly after a certain manager decided to cause problems. a lot of the staff were amazing and super supportive. as a member of staff with more responsibilities there was a little bit more pressure but it was handled well until my last few months of working with the company. the manager was calculating, rude and refuses to follow policies properly. very difficult to work with and creates more work for others because of the carelessness. same goes for a couple of the other managers in scotland branches, they need to start doing things the right way instead of their own way and actually treat people with respect because some of their behaviours have been despicable. Hopefully all will realise mistakes eventually and will sort it out but for the main part working with Harry Corry, it was great and I have some great memories

Ask any Harry Corry staff member who works in the store and you'll likely get the same answer. The store environment is great. Staff are friendly and helpful and are like a little family. Bring in any of the older outside management, i.e. directors/owners, and it changed. They aren't as helpful or supportive and can often find things to complain about even if it's only something small or even if you follow display guides exactly how they wanted.
One woman in particular is nasty and likes to play the "big boss" often leading to tears despite the fact she does this with a lovely fake smile.

Apart from this I loved working there and if you're lucky enough to rarely see these outside managers you would have a fantastic time working with Harry Corry!

The job was enjoyable, unfortunately it was the long serving members of staff that were bullies, Targets had to be met so if you made more sales than them you were acused of stealing there customers. Head office did nothing to help sort out these bullies and 6-7 new staff members left.
Cons
Bullies

Terrible place to work! You are basically treated like a nobody from top management. They come to visit from Belfast head office and barely say hello to you.
Very hard to get weekends off, only 10% staff discount. Even toilet breaks are monitored, watched constantly on cctv by head office... would not recommend at all
Pros
None
Cons
Almost everything
