    - Culture and team

    - Sample sales (and the profits go to charity)

    - Free fruit, breakfast and coffee

    Cons

    I worked at Kurt Geiger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Staff Discount
    If you have a supportive manager, work is enjoyable and rewarding.
    Manager ran in store incentives which lifted team spirit!
    Work Shoe allowance is an added bonus.
    You get to work with great products.

    Cons

    Company demands and expectations are sometimes crazy and unachievable.
    Stress levels can be very high due to staffing and targets.
    Upper management are not always supportive and don't always appear to listen.
    Mystery shops are stressful and expectations are ridiculously high.
    Customer relations are extremely rude and unprofessional, even to their own staff. I can understand why customers have such negative experiences. It really isnt the stores fault.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your store managers, they know how things run and are the ones implementing! Ask for feedback and use it because it doesn't appear to always be listened to.
