    I worked at French Connection part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good discount and uniform Loved most of the people I worked with Weekly incentives Customer service focused

    Cons

    Some managers did not like to see me succeed High targets weekly, difficult to achieve when you work the quietest parts of the day Very catty sometimes with other sales assistants, would be fighting over sales to achieve their target Not much room to grow in the business as a sales assistant

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at French Connection full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good discount benefits and uniform package

    Cons

    High overturn of management, limitations in internal progress i.e. unwillingness to recognise the potential when you've been in the company for years. Seemed there was favoritism towards those that the regional manager actually liked as opposed to actual work ethic. Poor pay.

    I have been working at French Connection part-time

    Pros

    Incentives if you make budget, new collections are nice and you get a pretty good discount on most items, fairly cruising job

    Cons

    Management turnover, managers don’t always tell you everything in terms of changes in the company, training standards are different depending on the store
