High-class retail environment, with relatively pleasant working conditions. Great central location. Looks good on your work record, since Selfridges is a prestigious name, recognized worldwide. Team of hard-working professionals who are very welcoming to new members of staff.
Hours are often demanding, and you're expected to work overtime as a matter of course. Pay could be a whole lot better. Managers tend to ignore legitimate staff concerns and sometimes even welfare issues. Lots of ambitious people in middle and senior management, all looking to climb the greasy pole.
It's been called 'the best department store in the world'
