    It’s great to hear that you enjoyed our amazing staff discount and uniform allowance in store and that you found the team to be supportive and passionate, as they are in line with our core values. Regarding not having insight into head office, it would be great to explore this point in a bit more detail so that we can fully understand this and any suggestions you have in improving this as we really are all ears when it comes to ideas to improve the working culture! Please do feel free to contact the HR to discuss further.

    I worked at Dune London full-time

    Pros

    None. Don't seem ready. Poor Head Office.

    Cons

    They don't even respond, after, you spend time and money to attend for an interview at the Head Offices, London. What is the point, of advertising a role to be filled. Then, after attending the interview, they cant even be bothered to provide a feedback. Very poor and disrespectful, comes to mind.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are really sorry that you feel this way about your time working for The Dune Group. We value a diverse workforce and pride ourselves on this within both our retail teams and head office environment. In terms of working environment and our offices, we try to create a welcoming and positive working environment and are proud of factors within our control such as our canteen, yoga classes and branded showrooms. However, if the above has not been your individual experience, we would be keen to know more to help us prevent current or future employees feeling this way also. You can contact a member of the HR team on 020 7258 3605 to discuss further.
