Good place

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
M &S is a good place to work if you can fit in with the culture. You do get the managers watching what you do which can be annoying as if you know your work you should be left to do it.

Pros

Discount card

Üretken bir çalışma ortamı

cevahir mağazasında çalıştım. Kat yöneticisi ve müdür yardımcısı çıkarılmamı istedi, müdürde çıkardı. Özel sektör işte. Firmanın iyi yanı ; depo işine depocu, temizlik işine temizlik uzmanı, görsel işine görselci, kasaya kasacı, satış işine satış danışmanı bakıyor. İş sözleşmesine haftalık çalışma saatini, saatlik brüt ücreti, yol ve yemek ücretini yazıp imzalayıp bir kopyasını personele veriyorlar, hepsi için elle tutulur bir kanıt oluyor. Mağazanın kötü yanı : Yöneticilerin zıttına gitmeyeceksin istiklal şubesine desteğe gitmiştim oradaki bir kat yöneticisiyle anlaşamadık diye sisteme girmemiş çalıştığım günü, o gün az daha boşa gidiyordu.

Pros

hayat sigortası

Cons

cevahirde sirkülasyon çok

Singles you out

If the manager does not like you, for whatever reason then they will do anything to get rid of you, set you up and play games so you leave. Jobs are not shared and favourite colleagues get away with treating you in a way that you don’t belong and nothing gets done about it.

Pros

Salary

Cons

No support, bullying & harassment is excused

Evet girecek ve girmek isteyen arkadaşlara tavsiye Satış danışmanı olarak basladigim bu işyerinde uzman satış danışmanı olarak işimi sonlandirdim yaklaşık 3sene. Sebeplere gelicek olursak baska mağazalar sana satış icin hedef ve bu hedef dogrultusunda prim verir ancak Ms de böyle bisey yok mağazaya hedef verilir yaparsan alırsın genelde de ulaşamayacağımız hedefler verirler 12 ayda 4-5 defa minimum 100 maksimum160 tl aldım. Size akıl oyunları yaparak yarışma düzenlerler örnek pijama satışı icin hedef verdiler dediler ki ege bölgesinde 1 ay da en cok pijama satan çalışana 100 tl lik hediye çeki. 40 kisi varsa bu bolgede sadece 1 kisi kazanacak kasmaya gerek yok.Işe yeni baslayan arkadaslar yardirir isi bilen hic birsey yapmaz. 100 tl hediye çeki ile ne alabilirsin ki ms den. Zaten total de istenilen rakami şirket tutturmuş olur. Gelelim yöneticilere inanılmaz bir uslup aşağılama hersey var. piskolojiniz bozulur benden söylemesi. Kat yöneticisi olan bir arkadaşımız müdürle arası iyi olduğu icin ve müdürün işini yaptığı icin çalışan satış danışmanlarına hakaretler edebiliyor kölesi saniyor. Ters gidersen ertesi gün kapanis, sonra ki gun açılış boyle devam eder ve surekli gelip satış cok düşük neden yemekten 2 dkk gec geldin, müşteriye neden bakmıyorsun, niye müşteri kaçırıyorsun, etiket yap alarm tak yani herseyi senin üstüne oynar diğerlerini görmezden gelir kisacasi mobing yapar. çünkü mudur içerde olanı bilmez gidip anlatırsın bu sefer mudurun işine gelmez. Önünde el pençe olmani isterler. Son olarak Bu şirket fiba holding bünyesinde köle olucam, herseye evet haklisiniz, ay -

Stressful and unsupported

The most disorganised job I have ever had.The cafe is extremely stressful due to a lack of staff and no manager with café experience overlooking the running of it. It is also quite a small cafe with very high footfall, meaning we constantly run out of space/equipment (cups,cutlery etc). We are rarely checked on when we are busy, but when we are quiet we are constantly being asked to help on the shop floor, leaving just 1 person in the café most of the time to cope by themselves. Many times I have been left alone from 3pm until 7pm due to a lack of staff, which is not only extremely overwhelming but also possibly dangerous. Most customers are friendly but many are demanding and unsympathetic. We are forced to manage the café ourselves a lot of the time, including sorting our own shift patterns, fixing broken equipment and training of new staff.All in all I would not recommend this job unless you want to be overworked, stressed, and ignored when you raise your concerns.

Pros

Colleagues

Cons

Short break, no help from managers

Awful place to work

Awful management and a culture of fear. Terrible hours and they always want more. They only like certain favourites. Christmas is ruined every year and booking holidays 18 months in advance. The customers are rude and always angry.

Cons

Terrible hours

Brilliant first job

My first job ever and an excellent introduction to the world of work. Quite disappointing to see a load of negative reviews which I cannot help but think are untrue. Management team very supportive, helpful, and keen to encourage more junior staff to take on additional responsibility. Management also frequently engage with staff encouraging them to achieve their best. Customer assistants are rotated from tasks frequently (usually every hour) allowing them to become familiar with a range of tasks, such as stocking shelves or operating tills. This has the downside of there being a lot to learn, but it also makes the job interesting and gives you a diverse skill-set. The general ethos of the company is also very good. Excellent customer service is highly valued, which certainly has the knock on effect of the company hiring colleagues who are generally supportive to one another. Even if the qualifications needed are not massive, it is an excellent environment to grow in.

Pros

Good benefits, supportive workplace.

Cons

Tiring work, a lot to learn.

Good place to work but you have to put in a graft

M&S is not the way it used to be. I would say it is a great place to work and there is plenty of chances for progression however you have to work hard.Throughout the Covid pandemic they were doing the right thing by customers and also colleagues.Once an employer sees M&S on your CV their eyes still light up, its still seen as the best in service. You can learn a lot and there are lots of L&D courses you can complete.In the end I felt there was no work/life balance but that's just retail as a whole

Pros

progression aspirations, salary, benefits, teams

Cons

Long hours, constantly changing

Top Marks

Great place to work for if you get the right team. Their learning resources are great, you can learn your role on your own or fill in gaps in your knowledge. The company gives a lot of great benefits which is handy if you are savvy. On the flip side you have to be determined to succeed as staff with long service do not welcome external candidates coming in high level positions. There can be a lack of teamwork as they feel threatened by new ideas. The staff who have long service history can also be hard to manage as they see a high turnover of managers. Over all a fabulous company to work for once you bypass all of the bad politics.

Pros

Very informative company with great training facilities.

Cons

Some staff have been in their roles for too long and are stagnant.

Great colleagues, really nice ones. Made the job much easier, they're fun & very helpful. I had no problem asking questions if I had any doubts.

Would come back again just because I can learn a lot more from them. Job is fast-paced but manageable. The only downside of this job is long working hours, 6 working days per week. Not flexible but the workload is ACTUALLY not that bad.

Pros

For full timers, there are a lot of benefits.

Cons

Long working hours and shifts are not flexible.

Great team…. Long long hours

Great place to work, pay is good, overtime is available, they do promote from within, the only negatives are the long 12 hour shifts, and if you cannot drive it isn’t great relying on public transport or other colleagues. The prefer you to multi skill, the pension scheme is first class, the canteen is disappointing considering the food that you can buy in the stores, they spent money on looking after staff during the height of the Covid pandemic. If I could drive I would of stayed and reduced my shift hours to 9 hours

Pros

Decent pay, very good pension

Cons

12 hour shifts, in the middle of nowhere
