    I have been working at Clintons part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It has always had very friendly staff that are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Christmas is insane. The amount of items delivered in just one delivery can reach around 50 huge boxes that you have to get into the store and out from any hallways/stairs. The add-on items should rotate or allowed to be chosen by staff. regular customers do not need tissue paper, tape, or any more charity pens.

    Pros

    Get to know your team on a personal level

    Cons

    There is no work life balance in the job, get told to manage situations and then are ignored when you ask for help, cut backs across the company even make Hr a nightmare to get hold of. If their is a visit expected to hide the true state of business and go off plan to make shop presentable when deliveries are a serious issue, everyday you have a lucky dip with what comes in and you deal with it even if its more of what you have and not what you need. 90% of your job is trying to keep a hardworking team on board as when you launch seasons/promotions there is always issues ending up doing the same job several times over wasting hours you need elsewhere in the week. Exppected to work 16 hour days and bullied to do so by Management.
