    I have been working at Phase Eight part-time

    Pros

    Absolutely loved my coworker
    Very easy
    70% off clothes

    Cons

    Terrible management
    Tons of paperwork for literally no reason and forces you to do lots of trackers using math that clearly doesn’t make sense.
    They require you to arrive 15 minutes early and if you close, you stay 15 minutes late but they only pay you for your base hours.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers and pay your employees better. A supervisor making less than £10 pounds and hour is absurd.

    I worked at Phase Eight part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    fun place to work, if you are a student you are able to be flexible with your schedule. you can also work more during your holidays. Co workers are very helpful, small family so you meet alot of new people and build new relationships. I worked at a concession at a department store so it was fairly busy which was great cause it wasn't boring.

    Cons

    As all jobs, cons are always about management.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Phase Eight part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone one of my colleagues were friendly inside and outside of work. You were given a lot of opportunities to learn more or have responsibilities of your own in the team.

    Cons

    Pressure is increasing as to how many ‘e-receipts’ and subscriptions you get. Although I was considered as a valuable member of team, this was all over ruled by my low percentages (you can not help it if the customer says no!) so I felt like a failure for the last few months of working there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being supportive of your team.

    I worked at Phase Eight part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Prestigious brand. Some nice clothes, nice staff .

    Cons

    Gets expensive buying uniform. Management not always pleasant. asked to work consistently longer hours than contracted.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more pleasant managers with people skills. Give a uniform allowance and introduce staff to area managers,Directors etc. Don't allow managers to bad mouth other members of staff as unprofessional! And make managers do their hours and come in on time.
