    I worked at Harvey Nichols full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Other team-members are lovely, good staff discount

    Cons

    Minimum wage and no commission unless unrealistic targets are hit, managers expect you to work incredibly hard and sometimes even come in on days off unpaid for minimum wage, no one to speak to if you don’t agree with something as there’s no union, senior managers raise targets two days before the end of the month or cut off commission half way through the month, they pretty much get away with doing whatever that want and there isn’t anything employees can do about it, very inflexible, no shift swaps or day off requests are allowed, no chance of getting anywhere in this company unless you’re willing to be a snake in the grass to climb the ladder
