    It’s like a small family, we all get along very well, we have a genuine interest in each other’s lives and support each other inside and outside of work.

    Cons

    Can be made to work extra hours, workload can be a lot, sometimes you are having to pull weight for other employees

    I worked at New Look part-time

    Pros

    Good social aspect to the job. Excellent discount. Fast paced and able to change up which department you're working on and rarely get bored on shift.

    Cons

    Some employees who have been there longer don't treat the job very seriously at all and are happy to leave the work to people who have been there for less time (and therefore cannot afford to slack), or simply leave it to people who are more hard-working.

    I worked at New Look part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work; amazing staff to work with and my colleagues were always so friendly. 40% staff discount. £7.70 per hour. Flexible shifts providing you ask for them in advance so it was quite accommodating working here. Good student job. Good progression and responsibility given out.

    Cons

    Could be manic at Christmas and head office is not providing stores with enough hours for staff so quite often you wouldn't be working as much as you wanted/ finishing early.
