      Heavily pressurised into doing way beyond what you’re paid for

      Pros

      -25% discount -Meeting new people -Exciting to work in footwear department

      Cons

      -Poor management (incorrect observations, immense amount of pressure put on you considering it’s minimum wage, intimidating tone, not very understanding and are unapologetic when they make a mistake themselves) -Discount only available after 3 months of working there -Low pay (£4.57 for under 18, £6 for 18+) -Expected to do more hours than your contract states -Unpaid breaks -Lots of gossip in the workplace especially from the older employees 25+ -Very stressful -Expected to do a lot of cleaning (including cleaning toilets, they don’t employ any cleaners to do this as far as I’m aware so it’s left to the sales assistants) -Slow technology (scanners system often went down mid serving making you look bad to the customer, no wifi provided for staff on breaks)

      Pros

      25% discount on everything including sale items

      Cons

      Terribly long hours (10 hours with only an hour break and we're held back for over time more often than not), AWFUL pay for the hours and work you're expected to do, bad management that don't know what they're doing. Worst of all they don't follow any COVID guidelines like social distancing and controlling the amount of people in store. Working there over the Christmas was literally hell. DON'T WORK HERE!

      Manual admin with fake promises of progression, great if you have 0 career ambitions

      Pros

      25% discount and a cheap canteen

      Cons

      - Pay works out at minimum wage for 25+, and not much more for 21+ - The office is also a pretty horrible place to visit, surprisingly dated to say how fancy JD stores are - Micro-management - Toxic culture, with high-pressure on medial tasks - If you're a graduate, you will not be challenged in terms of ability - everything you do is very simple just very laborious - Fake promises of progression (Despite proving to managers I'd accomplished everything on the job description to progress and constant 'support' and reassurance that promotion would be 6-12months after starting from them, no opportunities arose after 14/15months working there) - Lots of administrative and boring tasks that take lots of time to little effect for the business (nothing that couldn't be done without better systems) - The amount of revenue the company makes masks what is a very uninspiring place to work, with little time for progressive thinking and people quite happily following dated processes

      Pros

      - 25% discount after probation period - Free uniform

      Cons

      - You don’t get any bonuses for the creps you sell which is corrupt because it means your hard work is not respected and awarded. Only the managers get the bonuses for it which is unfair. - Managers are always finding small things just to tell you off in a rude way and have a go at you just so they can boost their ego. - The store makes enough money yet they want you to clean the dust off the grid every morning but can’t change it themselves or hire a cleaner for it.
