    Pros

    Great head office staff and the CEO is really down to earth and treats you like you’re views and opinions are important

    Cons

    Can be tough on the stores who work on low hours with the high expectation of tasking and customer service

    Advice to Management

    Look into the tasking levels compared to the staffing in store

    I worked at Bonmarché part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loyal customers, fun team to work with

    Cons

    New sales targets were introduced all the time - you have to push bonus cards, emails, and basically harass customers to sign up otherwise management will have a go at you at the end of the shift. Part time hours were only in 4 hour shifts and had no consistency or flexibility. High staff turnover because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting unrealistic pressure on staff.
