Loads of shifts during summer bit quieter after that

Got to work at a variety of high end brands but they would ask me to work very last minute so it was hard to plan my day. If you were sent to a place you didn’t like or felt uncomfortable at they were very understanding and would relocate you.

meh

if you want fast money and ready to give as much of your working time. good place, only interested in full-time working. Part-time work you will barely get any shifts. i tried for a year to go from full-time to part-time. i ended up just focusing on my other jobs.

Aspetti positivi

weekly pay

Aspetti negativi

long hours, management barely listen

Good sales experience

I enjoyed working for Elite Associates as it allowed me to meet new people, and build experience in the luxury sales department, working in places such as Burberry and Chanel required product knowledge and skills in handling products with care.

WORST agency to work with

This agency is unprofessional, insincere and a disaster. I have been with elite for a while, they are unreliable and expect too much from you. Management are by far hypocrites and expect you to communicate with them when they do not even respond your emails, calls or texts. They once left me waiting 4 MONTHS without a response. They expect you to be free if they call you last minute, even an hour before they want you in to cover a shift. They don't take into consideration you have personal lives and cannot turn up last minute. Even if you are sick and call up to cancel in the morning, they treat you so poorly and force you to come in. The managers have been so rude and talk to you like children, there is no internal communication between themselves and then they proceed to interrogate you if you are not available to work. They also do not consider your likes and dislikes, if you are uncomfortable in some of the places you are booked in for they dont understand. To be honest, it is an absolute joke. The pay does not reflect how much effort you put in and what you are made to put up with. Not to mention how much the team make you feel like they own you when they dont. The shifts I have been given were only positive and good because of the department team in harrods, not because of elite. This third part agency can really ruin your experience in luxury fashion. Their communication with their clients can also be poor and reflect upon you when you turn up for your shift, they dont take responsibility for absolutely anything and when you are honest with them and tell -

Interesting place to work

I was given shifts according to the dates I could work and would sign in with a member of staff from the agency every morning before my shift started.

Not enough shifts available

My only major issue would be the lack of communication between managers and employees about available shifts.Other than that the pay is decent and the employees are very warm and welcoming.

Decent workplace to work in, however lack of progression within company t

Worked for a couple of months with the company, its very flexible in terms of picking your shifts, but no real progression with the company due to being agency staff. Get the opportunity to work with great luxury brands in either Harrods or Selfridges.

unreliable

standing alone for hours on end missed a shift as it was not given to me on my rota turned up for my first 9-5:30 shift at 8:30 to found out that the store did not actually open until 10 and was closing at 4. Had to waiting the in the rain for half an hour, sit in the staff room for an hour and rearrange my journey home

Worst agency ever

Do not apply to work for this agency. I was hired in November and haven’t been given ONE Shift since. had to do lots of induction training and also had to attend a selfridges store approval which I was NOT paid for after being told we would! Absolutely disgraceful management also a waste of time! AVOID AT ALL COST.

Not to be your sole job

Barely any shifts, a lot more time is spent prepping for shifts rather than actually working (inductions, several days teaching sales technique and emphasising dress code) - I definitely spent a lot of money on travel to the office before I was even offered a shift, over 2 months after being approved. Staff are kind but very last minute and sometimes have bad internal communication. Shifts are almost always offered the same day, and when offered work they want you to work several days back to back - doesn’t give you the flexibility a temping job should. The pay is low and though quite unclear, the ad is misleading - you are a sales assistant, not a makeup artist. It does provide you great opportunities to work with a range of luxury brands and get good sales training, so a great start to see what brand you like working with best and if you’d like to pursue that.

Aspetti positivi

Work with luxury brands (Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton)

Aspetti negativi

Last minute. Unreliable shifts.

Versatile

Working with varies different brands was a good way to start working with luxury. I gained a lot of knowledge about luxury fashion and it helped me decide on what I wanted to pursue for the future.
