    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at JD Sports Fashion full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The store I worked in was in the London city Centre and easy to commute

    Cons

    Anything else - from the products they sell to the way they tell you to approach costumers - sucks. Managers are bossy and rude to others (colleagues and consumers) and clearly not qualified to handle tressful situations or any situation in general.

    Advice to Management

    Fire some people and hire new ones Also change your approach to brand identity
