Follow 5 I have a problem - I'm moving this month to Birmingham. Follow 6 Original post by Racheld25 That depends on when you're moving! If its within the next 2 weeks, then yes - go for it. If not, then there really isn't much point unless you can commute each day. Follow 7 It's not a job you can doss in either. Depending on where you work, as a part timer you will pretty much work most weekends maybe every most full weekends depends on store an management the company does have an outline to working weekends, over a 4 week period you would work a sat and sun, then a sat and have sun off, then a sat off and a sun off then a whole weekend off BUT be warned that the company likes to run on mainly smaller contracts part timers so say if you work in a smaller shop they might use the full timers for mon-fri and part timers to do weekends, but again not all stores use the company guidelines.
As sales assistants you get paid fortnightly every other friday visuals, admins and management get paid monthly. During your three month probationary period you can purchase in your own store or get a letter from the management to use in another store.
Your allowed to put things on hold for 24 hours like customers but need a member of management to just authorise it. There is the opportunity to get a quarterly bonus 3 weeks money IF the store hits the target but they make it harder to achieve and is based on not only money but used hours also, so don't have high hopes for that!
Theres on going training which is good. Your kept up to date with all the latest trends and up and coming garments. Your wage will also go up after you pass your three month probationary period. Succession in the company is high, they used to only have store managers and department managers but have recently introduced 'responsible' which is basically a supervisor, which comes with a pay rise not huge but it's better than nothing and more responsibility.
I did that for two months and then was asked to interview for department manager in another store and got the job I aim to be area manager within 5 years!! The company as a whole could do with coming into modern times as a lot of things are done backwards but it's a swedish company so I think this is why it's behind in times. It has it's pros and cons like any work place and no store is the same, neither are the staff and management. I would recommend applying once you have moved.
Vacancies are always going up so literally look every week. Follow 8 I've no idea what they're actually looking for. Twice now I've had interviews with them, one last year, one this year in a different store.
I have years of experience in retail- really under pressure understaffed type of atmosphere, able to multitask, team worker blah blah tills fitting room, also lots of admin stuff and price mistakes etc. Yet two rejections after interview. I'm well able to talk about experience, researched the company, able to come across as confident without being arrogant etc, full flexibility as regards hours..
Unless they just want people with only a bit or no experience as they are easier to exploit? Zhin Follow 2 followers 0 badges Send a private message to Zhin. Follow 9 I've applied a couple of times and got rejection emails within less than 24 hours. I have a little fashion retail but mainly other kinds of retail experience as a sales assistant more or less totaling to around 7-ish months. Could there be something else that I'm not making stand out in my applications?
Follow 10 Follow 11 Sophie Follow 0 followers 2 badges Send a private message to Sophie Follow 12 They then interview quite a few people individually based on your CV and application form answers: Can you tell me a bit about yourself? Why do you want to work for this company?
What can you offer the company? Why is customer service important? If we rang your friends how would they describe you? Are you a leader, listener or player? Who do you see as our main competitors? What do you know about the company? What do you think your role would involve? Does the job look hard?
Do you think we cater for all age ranges? What is your biggest strength? What type of person are you? They usually take about 15 minutes and they are with the store manager and another member of staff - the manager asks the questions and the member of staff makes notes on what you say If you are successful after your first interview they will contact you to arrange another if you are unsuccessful I think you just get an email The second interview is sort of in a group - in my group there were 10 people and you are paired up with a member of staff and have a sort of 'trial hour' - you're either on fitting room, clearing stock from the fitting room or generally tidying and supporting the other staff They then call you up to the office individually and tell you whether you are successful or not - its ultimately based on the feedback the staff give so try and be as helpful and positive as possible I work in a very large store though so the application process may differ in smaller stores Good Luck!
Follow 13 Thankyou so much for replying. Tasnima92 Follow 0 followers 0 badges Send a private message to Tasnima Follow 14 Follow 15 Yeah, same here, mine is on tuesday.
I want to find out who the competitors are as well, am guessing they are like New look, Next, Debenhams? And does anybody know what hour contracts they give out?
