      Pros

      25% discount at all Arcadia stores, friendly staff and manager, uniform allowance

      Cons

      Miss Selfridge is often a concession in Debenhams which can attract different consumers, often serve people who aren’t buying from Miss Selfridge.

      Pros

      Great friendly team, hard-working team leader and manager, 60% off uniform allowance, feel valued and cared for in your job.

      Cons

      Not great opportunity for extra hours/overtime as contracted hours for our concession are limited, working in a small concession means limited progression opportunities.

      Pros

      Generous staff uniform allowance, 25% staff discount, travel-card included for management positions

      Cons

      Negative senior managers, verging on bullying. They expect ridiculous hours to be worked, for no reward. Often schedule store visits outside of your working hours and will only turn up in their own time, so you are often left waiting around. Arcadia is a sinking ship with many redundancies and store closures. They do not care about the staff and treat everyone as though they are disposable. Senior management are stuck in their ways and are not receptive to new ideas.

      Pros

      TBH the best parts of working at Miss S are colleagues and co-worker; the staff discount is okay - having across all Arcadia brands is nice, and the uniform allowance is reasonable.

      Cons

      Management and structure - promotions and sale launches can go ahead and change date at the drop of a hat; progression depends entirely on manager whims and personal opinion. Experienced and capable staff members are frequently doing jobs that are above their pay grade yet not receiving adequate compensation or promotion. Have noticed between several branches.

      Pros

      The discounts, 25% off at all Arcadia brands with some exceptions at BHS. 60% off for uniform allowance every 6 weeks. Retail pay is better than most other brands.

      Cons

      Some of the staff can typically be people you may clash with (mostly management). Holidays longer than 2 weeks are forbidden. Lack of communication between stores which leads to a loss in a transfer opportunity.
