Pros
  • Good pay, pay above minimum wage for under 21s (in 30 reviews)

  • Great staff, fun atmosphere, good discount, great management, good pay (in 29 reviews)

Cons
  • The minimum 4 hour contracts p/w are annoying, especially considering you sometimes get sent home early after 2 (in 6 reviews)

  • This often meant 20 minutes unpaid work which was a lot because I only ever got given 3 hour shifts (in 6 reviews)

    I worked at Schuh Limited (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, discounts - reward employees and career Progression

    Cons

    Very physical up and down the stairs, however is a good workout so not a negative for me. High expectations of the working world, I started here whilst studying at college and Uni and can honestly say that the Schuh culture prepared me for the real working world and I am forever grateful! Hard working, great banter at times and the eye candy on Oxford street is awesome for men and women! They offer real careers in retail with the chance to progress to head office jobs or regional management!

    Advice to Management

    Expect that teens in College and early 20's in Uni are not going to invest in the business, so make the job fun and they will always be your customer when they leave.

    I worked at Schuh Limited part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, pay above minimum wage for under 21s.
    Iscans and kiosks make it really easy to do you're job.
    Fairly easy when you get used to it, stock room is well organised and easy to navigate

    Cons

    Managers change you're shifts without telling you.
    Nobody was kept on despite them saying some would during the interview.
    Being the striker (at the front of the store) is horrible and pointless as customer always ignore you.
    No culture/relationship between employees, everyone just seems to do their own thing.

    Advice to Management

    Make more use of the online schuh portal so we can check our shifts in advance. Dont change shifts without telling employees as we won't know.

    I worked at Schuh Limited part-time

    Pros

    I found the management in my store to be particularly flexible and understanding
    A great place to work for people who like working with targets
    You get to socialise with people all day on a professional level

    A growing amount of very young staff members (16-18) appeared to affect the competency and commitment of staff unfortunately.

    Keep setting incentives to push staff
