No age diversity

Fast paced, energetic office suitable for graduates and those without family commitments. For a growing business that is reliant upon children and families, the work load and expectation is not suited to those with young families and the commitments they require. During my time there the staff turnover was very high for a certain age demographic.

Horrible place to work

You would think a toy shop would be a nice place to work, especially around the festive season. But quite frankly that isn’t the case for this shop. In the interview management were very nice and polite but do not be fooled, that all changes when you start working. The management here is shockingly bad, except for a few decent duty managers. The senior management team are extremely rude and not pleasant to work alongside. They treat most employees with very little respect by speaking to employees like children in a condescending manner. They use the little power that they have to bring down staff members and be-little them. They find it amusing to give out to employees and make staff fear them. Also managers open doors late into the shop every morning and dock 15 mins for being “late” even when you are standing outside since 7 waiting for them (this happens everyday). Absolutely disgusted by their management skills because clearly they have none. It’s a shame as all staff are really lovely to work with but management ruin it. Horrible place to work. Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

Pros

Staff members are lovely but managers ruin it

Pay is really good but the managers were mean and one of them made a pass on me and all the other young women working there as far as I know and that’s unprofessional
