    Pros

    Staff are always really friendly, chance you cover at other stores and meet new people, loads of overtime, great staff discounts at Superdrug and TPS, great pay and holiday allowance, great shift lengths (not too long not too short), varying jobs throughout the day to break up the day, great learning tools to further knowledge, fabulous management, roadshows with Perfume brands where you can get freebies! Lots of company recognition

    Cons

    I don’t have any cons for this company!

    Advice to Management

    Carry on as you are!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Perfume Shop (Greenhithe, England) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Very informal, the interview lasted about 15-20 minutes done by the HR manager in store. Very pleasant experience, contacted within a week after the interview. They observe how you interact with staff in store as well.
