an hour for sales assistants?
Think when I was there it was 5.50 plus 50p location allowance
I forget. Probably similar pay, ask michael_w, he works in HMV.
it was £6.18 an hour. Ive got a sneaky feeling Waterstones employees were on slightly less though - its probably the same for both now
She started off on about £6.20 an hour and there was a slight increase after six months. You also get a 30 per cent staff discount, which has come in useful for Christmas presents.
except you'd have no time to idly flick through books while you work. At least in a record shop you could listen to the stock. So you may as well be working in a Tesco really. Having said that, branches of Waterstones smell really nice, like the inside of a fresh paperback.
and have targets and mystery shoppers assessing them
Certainly was when I worked there... retail pssh
if a certain friend of mine who worked there a few years back was anything to go by
in any respect
