    I worked at House of Fraser part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Exciting and fun. Worked in the menswear department, loads of great characters and management that encouraged hard work. Never understaffed and morale was always great amongst all workers.

    Cons

    Only flaw at this store was it could get extremely busy during christmas.
