    I worked at Topshop part-time

    Pros

    If working in the fashion industry is a goal in your life, full/part time work in a clothing fashion stores like Topshop help boost your knowledge of the retail industry as well as helping reaching your goal if committed.

    Cons

    One downside to working in retail is that you may feel quite lonely. Also, you come across some customers that can be really arrogant and mean **not a nice feeling when you try to keep a smile and stay happy**

    I worked at Topshop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff are generally nice to each other. There’s some good benefits such as staff discount and managers that are easy to get on with.

    Cons

    Being a flagship store, you’d expect the managers to be a tad more competent in performing their roles. Most of the time, the store felt like a sunken ship and this physically impacted the way we all performed our jobs. It was also very disorganised and felt like everyday was a wing. There was more actions for screwups then there was positive reinforcements.
