Featured Review

Current Employee - Learning and Development Partner

I have been working at New Look full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great Colleagues - One of the first things I noticed about working at New Look is how great the people are who work here. When I was interviewing my recruiter and new manager were just so nice and... fun that I kept thinking that if they're the kind of people that work at New Look then I want to be a part of that. When I started I hoped everyone would live up to this expectation and they really have. Great Perks - Staff discount is 40% which just means I shop nowhere else but New Look. Huge bundles of clothes go with me to the tills and then I'm always shocked at the bargain price I'm getting it all for. Then on top of that there are loads of additional benefits and discounts that we can get elsewhere. Plus little cute initiatives here and there that make me feel really valued. Great Atmosphere - this company really lives up to it's ambition of 'Fun in the Now' and it really feels like good vibes only in the office. Career Opportunities - There is so much opportunity to progress here, New Look really tries to support internal talent, and is great at offering things like secondments to employees.

Cons

Hmmm, this is a hard one. Occasionally certain processes are quite complicated, however you can see lots of internal initiatives to innovate and simplify which is really encouraging.
