Does Schuh Limited offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Pay is pretty reasonable and internal promotion is preferred over external hiring so potential to progress. HR tends to be quite pleasant to deal with; store/customer support systems are well-organised. Training is regular and comprehensive. Good holiday allowances and staff discounts.

Cons

The overall company is really quite decent. They previously were one of the better-paying retail employers, equal high pay not governed by age which was excellent for school-age employees, but in recent years this has slipped significantly and now they only pay minimum wage. Individual store managers and regional managers are not held to company standards and this creates a path for individual stores to operate in wildly different ways with wildly different cultures. I've worked in stores that were bright and friendly and worked hard to build good staff-manager relationships which I took into my work when I supervised, but I've also worked in stores where truly incompetent (e.g. not able to operate our tills) and out-of-touch (e.g. mild racism, patronising attitude) managers remained in post, protected by their long relationships with regional managers and long tenure at the store; in turn they encouraged mistrustful and childish working environments which made the jobs really unpleasant.
