Featured Review

Former Employee - Sales Advisor

I worked at Topshop part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The people are the best and the job is fun

Cons

No cons that I can think of

Current Employee - Administrative

I have been working at SportsDirect full-time for more than a year

Pros

A lot of opportunities to go further within the company, you just need to prove yourself! Very good team, always there to help. And always very professional and friendly! Flexible working time,... especially fo students or working mothers who can't work full shifts every week. On the job training from sport giants like Nike and Adidas for free. Staff discounts from the first day at work. Amazing commission scheme for all employees,up to 5% goes directly onto our pockets, no one else would give you that! And on top of that contribution from the store pot again just for you!

Cons

Sometimes it can be very stressful during busy periods, like in any other job.

Advice to Management

Keep up with the good work, team! We are the UK's No 1 sports retailer!
