    I worked at Roman Originals full-time

    Pros

    None whatsoever. If I could give them 0 stars I would.

    Cons

    Every single thing about the place. Management. Toxic environment. No help with development / growth within the business. Worked to the bone. No trust - they still make staff clock in with a hand print so they know what time you enter and leave the building and watch your every move. I felt very depressed & anxious due to this place. AVOID.

    Pros

    Great store manager and coworkers.

    Cons

    Wouldn’t even give 1 star! No support from company just a number, lone trading, area manager bullies staff and customers had regular customer’s walk out because of her. She makes you feel uncomfortable and talks down to you every time she comes into store, she goes out for more cigarettes than helps you out when she comes.

    Pros

    Great staff in shop, get to meet lovely customers

    Cons

    Progression takes a long time and even then some AM give people Jobs before job offer is posted to staff, no appreciation from hire up management, 50% off for staff uniform is too low if expected to only wear brand new items- People have bills to pay... Favouritism between different stores means people can get away with murder, AM abusing her power bringing some staff to brink of a mental breakdown and they're scared to stand up for themselves incase they loose their jobs. Don't get paid for having to stay extra 5-10mins a day opening up and cashing up.
