    Pros

    One of the best American company in the uk. Greater environment and amazing discounts.

    Cons

    Team leaders and managers taking full advantage of regular team members. Some departments managers and team leaders are like celebrities you don’t even get the chance to seem them while team members her getting slaved. At HSK the people who are in charge of payroll and hairing new staff are straight racist if you ain’t European or one of them they won’t even haire you the worst part is the two ladies who are dealing with payrolls can’t even speak English properly lol

    Advice to Management

    Stop making people who can’t even speak proper English a team leader I mean we are in English a team leader should be able to speak and explain procedures properly not getting stuck and not even being able to pronounce or even read a simple sentence.

    Pros

    Pay very precise (every overtime minute gets paid) even if not very high, general environment very good, better than any other retail job I've ever experienced, relaxed atmosphere but very busy at times

    Cons

    all the hype around the core values is essentially fake
