J'ai travaillé chez Harrods en Contrat Permanent
Incredible experience working for an icon in luxury retailing. Small teams working on big departments, brilliant training for all retail skills including buying, merchandising, trading, analysis... Lots of opportunities for "intrapreneurship." Anybody who wants to work on the business side of fashion, this is a brilliant starting point. Some absolutely brilliant people to work with, learnig from. Superb Learning & Development programmes.
Very political environment, incredibly low salaries until senior manager levels (this is waved off as "market standard," but it's below several high street and e-comm competitors). Limited opportunities for progression on the buying side - understandible given the size of the business and common for the industry, but a downside nonetheless. Navigating family leave can be difficult and political, which is really surprising given the preponderance of women in the ranks and senior leadership.
Conseils à la direction
Pay competitively to retain talent and provide a better structure for women who want to have careers and families. Ensure bonus structure is tied to controllable outcomes.
J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Harrods (Londres, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)).
Applied through indeed, got invited for a video interview, then an interview with an assistant manager. The day after my second interview I got called with an offer of employment and asked when I was available to work. I had to attend a two day compulsory induction.
