      Pros

      Training in treatments Beautiful working environment Experience with the clientele Great and supportive colleagues to work with Staff discount and benefits Food hall Looks good in CV Big staff canteen with a lot of choices of food Getting discount on top of sale items Easy employment after gaining experience here I really enjoyed my time here despite the odd problems here and there. Definitely a great place to work at. I met so many wonderful people here.

      Cons

      Pay is not great. Not competitive wage at all. Expensive staff lunch Low on products all the time. Not getting deliveries on time. Expect staff to work and also keep track of stock but when you are back to back in treatments how is staff supposed to go and do stock count? Often staff would come in early to do training and lieu time are not given and it is also not paid for unless pushed for which surely we should auto be entitled to as these are done in our own time. Staff let go easily as you are easily replaced Bad tips It is a fast paced place. Before covid when back to back with 5mins turn over time sometimes it was hard to even go for a wee. Hard to progress so you will most likely just stay in that same position to the end of time.

      Pros

      Great benefits for employeed all through the store including discounts up to 33% and some of restaurants around Harrods offer staff discount you just have to ask Incredibly nice area and place to work at!

      Cons

      No pay increase in 2021 due to Covid Got rid of majority of staff members once they got off furlough scheme, there is no feeling if stability There is feeling of progression in the roles, easy to go to management/team leader, however the money is not very exciting to take extra responsibilities for a small increase in the salary, despite all the perks and benefits of discounts for employees
