I did not like one member of staff there and hated management. There was always pressure and wages were poor. I enjoyed the customers. I left due to being bullied by management

Great place to work when you're considering your fellow staff members, the management in the store treat their sales assistants very poorly she picks favourits and gives those people the most hours, the new staff aren't given much chance for progression in the company when they start the job they're thrown on the the tills and that's where they stay they're not the chance to learn new things all they're told to do is stay 1st cover and keep the till area tidy they're not given much of a chance to learn new things for exactly how to re-merchandise a departure or shown how to properly sell a shoe in footwear which is the companys biggest money maker. With the hours normal part time staff members are mainly given a 4 or 4.5 hour shifts so they don't have to give a break. And good help you if you were to call in sick she has no consideration at all.
Pros
Great staff and fun to work with the staff are the reason I stayed for as long as I did
Cons
Terrible manager she a disgrace to be honest she's a bully

I have worked for the company for 4 years, starting as a retail sales associate but have tirelessly worked to progress myself within the company up to supervisor.
It was an amazing place to work and had great benefits such as Career Progression, Job Safety and a competitive rate of pay,

I have learned everything I know about management, leadership and many other life skills by working alongside many of the high profile and influencing managers in the company.
Recently we were part of a buy-out where Sports Direct ltd bought us over 100%, when the buyout was completed the company began to go downhill, many of the high profile managers left and the standards of the companies dropped.

Job security is still high, they still pay a competitive wage but the career progression and the standards of the company has dropped immensely.
Pros
Flexible working hours, Job security
Cons
Standards and career progression

I came across amazing people taught me various different things about working in the retail industry. heatons has a very high standard in presentation and how the company wants the store to be viewed the work rate was always high. I learnt the store standards straight away and was able to adapt to the rules and my working environment.

In this job I had one day a week, as i was in college, my day would be a 4 hour shift on tills, and tidying the shop floor and merchandising. It was my first job in the the fasion sector in retail, so I learned a lot about that, Management changed a lot, so it was hard to form a relationship with the management of my department, but they were good to work with.
Cons
very little hours

I worked weekend in Heatons and I was a cashier and I help clean shop after it closed.
I gained a lot of skills on how to approach customer who have complaints and I learned how to exchange items for the consumer.

The management in Heatons was not top quality but I really enjoyed my time there.
I got on great with my co-workers and still keep in contact with them. We all worked really well as a team.

I didn't consider the job difficult my experience there was enjoyable.

The enjoyable part of job was interacting the the customers
Pros
Got on great with my co workers
Cons
No proper training

Typically, each day had the same basic layout. It was spent on till duty dealing with sales, refunds and exchanges. When the till area was cleared recovery started on the shop floor which included making sure the shelves and rails were adequately stocked and clean. I learned various new skills while working here such as customer service, operation of tills and stocking shelves and rails. It is a team store and all co-workers work together in order to get everything done on time and to the best of our ability. The management were fair and willing to help and teach new skills to all employees. The hardest part of the job I found was putting out new stock and deciding where would be the best area within the shop to place it. The part of the I enjoyed most was operating the tills and dealing with the customers and helping with any queries they had.

Como supervisora, trabalhava diretamente com clientes e com os demais funcionários, os treinando inclusive para trabalhar no caixa e também autorizando certas transações. Paralelo a isso, era responsável pelo departamento feminino da loja. Já quando substituindo a gerente, trabalhava com o controle financeiro de em média 50mil euros por dia e controle administrativo de relatórios de venda e estoque, assim como horas semanais trabalhadas, pagamento e processos burocráticos de contratação, desligamento e dispensa de funcionários.
Pros
Otimos salarios

Muito frio

The first thing is to get till and count it,then either do delivery or serve customers and at the end of day help tidy up the floor in which I work, I also sometimes ring around to other shops to get stock transfered for customers.
Some times some management take their bad days out on their staff.
It is good to see a idea you came up with work out.
Pros
Staff Discount
Cons
Creativity discouraged at times, amount of hours uncertain, Some managers only want people who agree with their ideas
