Demanding targets, great staff

Targets for the store are set too high, as well as the commission scale. Training is provided weekly. Great compliment of staff, but easily demotivated by unreasonable store targets.

Pros

constant product training

Cons

unreasonable targets, poor commission structure, incentives are not paid out in time.

All work and fun inculded

It is a company I really enjoyed working for. The staff are helpful and friendly. It is a company that is high pressure which can be a good thing as it allows a person to grown and deal with stress on a daily basis. The line managers are always there to assist you and the structure of the company is wonderful. If given an opportunity to get back within the company I shall take it with both hands open. Each day was a day where something new is been learnt. The day was always challenging yet fun. The culture is something I can relate to as it is a hierarchy environment where respect is given to elders no matter the position. The most enjoyable part of the job was always been challenged on a daily basis..

Pros

room for growth

Long and hard working hours

In the one side I did enjoy my job because I got the opportunity to communicate with people and my passion is advertising so that is my passion but the hours was very long and the salary was not enough for that hours. I always say that I'm not here to hate my job and myself for the rest of my life, I'm here to enjoy my life and love myself.

Pros

no nothing

Cons

1 hour break on a 10 hour shift
