    Je travaille chez Honey Birdette à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Incentives
    Some wonderful coworkers
    Some nice music in store

    Inconvénients

    Everything.
    Bullying in the work place.
    Underpaid for extra hours worked (even when State Manager assures you that you will be paid)
    No breaks for full day work
    The constant threat of being fired and replaced
    Feeling worthless as a human being and an employee
    Creepy customers and stalkers at work (no cameras)
    No support from State Manager even when you ask for support
    KPI creates toxic and competitive environment where people steal others' sales or do dodgy things (like spending their own money) just to make target

    Conseils à la direction

    TAKE CARE OF YOUR HONEYS.
    Hire State Managers who actually have a qualification in management or offer formal training to build their skills. The lack of support from management and clear favouritism is painful to experience and to watch. It's such a toxic environment where you feel happy when you're at the top then next thing you know, you've lost your job because you're no longer the favouritism. This company does not value experience or loyalty or skills. Only short term bandaid fixes. Please please please if you are thinking of working here: just don't. Your health and happiness is worth so much more than this job. Do not make the same mistake I did.

    J'ai travaillé chez Honey Birdette à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Decent pay (legal award rate so it's their base obligation)
    Being able to warn others about your poor experience

    Inconvénients

    Abusive top management
    Consistent physical and psychological OH&S concerns
    Long term psychological trauma
    Cheap China made products with unreasonably high profit margins ($5 cost of production sold at ~$200)
    Lack of appropriate HR department
    Consistent issues with payroll (Same individual as HR)
    CEO sends personally abusive emails to low performing stores
    Management creates issues as excuses to fire staff
    Blatant ignoring of Worksafe notifications of OH&S breaches

    Conseils à la direction

    Company needs CEO with experience and actual strategy for company - not just a profit generating machine. Needs to fix overall culture of the company. Bullying is currently encouraged. Not an empowering workplace.

    Managers are hired based on figures, not performance. This has resulted in some of the most notorious, ruthless and absolutely disgraceful individuals getting promoted and subsequently bullying lower staff.

    Personal input: currently still receiving psychological help for lasting impacts of this organisation's behaviour. Decided to make this post despite leaving company due to continued psychological trauma.

    Advice to prospective future employees: be aware of this company. There are other retail outlets out there that give you benefits without the long term damage. You will be treated right if you are fortunate enough to score a high traffic store. Otherwise, you will be treated exceptionally poorly regardless of ability and skill as sales individuals.

    Avantages

    Lots of opportunities to progress, will always hire in-house where possible.

    Amazing incentives company and year wide, nice to be rewarded for hard work.

    Uniform is a beautiful and it's very nice being able to dress glam for work.

    Big company which works on small business mindset, never feel like just a number.

    Very caring and involved Managing Director.

    Company of dedicated, hard working women who create a sense of community in the workplace and really practise what they preach when it comes to the message of empowerment.

    Inconvénients

    High pressured sales environment, sales and budget closely monitored.

    Long hours, much more than a 9-5.

    Life/work can sometimes be difficult to balance.

    Zero hour contracts for non-management.

    Black out periods over Christmas and Valentines.

    Conseils à la direction

    Numbers are only a small insight into a store, sometimes more help needs to come from the top down in order to help stores better perform.

    Keep rewarding that hard work where due, making beautiful products and creating a community of amazing honey's, both customers and employees alike.

    Avantages

    You get to meet some nice people and work with interesting products.

    Inconvénients

    Unpaid compulsory "boot camps" (training sessions)
    Not paid overtime.
    Forced to buy their products with no uniform allowance, especially when the guidelines are so strict.
    Use scare tactics to make girls bend over backwards to keep their job.
    Insidious things happening behind closed doors.
    Workplace bullying stemming from competition.
    Forced to look sexy to sell.
    Forced to be pushy and over the top towards customers.
    Don't even try to report bullying to the state manager, she will either- ignore, or blame you.
    Put down if you don't look sexy enough.
    Told you are replaceable and lucky to have the position.
    Constantly accused of not doing well enough.
    Manager reduces your hours for you reason, even though i was the best seller- stemming from jealousy.
    Don't work here unless you want to be stressed ALL the time- over a retail job....

    Conseils à la direction

    You wouldn't listen anyway, because you're money hungry cooperate robots, but you need someone to be watching and reviewing the bullying happening in the stores. Communication is so important and if there was some way of enforcing a fair method to keep watch over the stores, such as someone objective, visiting and making sure that things are running smoothly, and not just talking to the manager, but asking the other honeys too.

    J'ai travaillé chez Honey Birdette (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    40% off outrageously overpriced and knock off lingerie

    Inconvénients

    Told to flirt with male customers and "sell them the fantasy" but the store is marketed as "empowering women"
    Store Managers told by higher ups to "dangle the carrot" of a promotion to casual staff to make them work harder and sell more.
    Extremely competitive environment with store managers stealing customers
    Super high individual budgets that are not achievable in a three hour shift.
    Cult-like/ brainwashing mentality from managers- the CEO can do no wrong and we should kiss the ground she walks on.
    Only want to hire naive under 25 year olds so that they can be molded to reflect the HB ideals.
    Manipulative sales tactics are taught.
    Required to attend mandatory training in capital cities without pay and if you did not attend your hours were cut.
    Passive aggressive managers.
    Ridiculed and berated by former staff who then report back to CEO about casual staff who may not have had enough training.
    Required to be 30 minutes early to a shift and stay until everything in store is spotless.
    So many unpaid hours.
    An updated work wardrobe is demanded every season and you're required to wear three items per shift.
    Reimburse your staff when they purchase stock for work- not reimbursing them is illegal under federal law.
    Allow your staff proper breaks and don't expect your staff to work a ten hour shift at short notice during Christmas Trading. A Sunday shift without a break for the toilet is uncomfortable and dangerous to your health.

    Conseils à la direction

    Be kind to your staff and pay them properly.
    Remove the policy of "find your own replacement" for shifts that causal's who may be sick and cannot work.
    Get a store budget and stop naming and shaming your staff in the weekly report, people have bad sales weeks, doesn't mean everyone in the company should know about it.
    CEO needs to quit playing favourites with a small and select group of staff.
    Appreciate your staff when they cut their holidays short, are called in at short notice and stop manipulating them into working when they're not available.
    Listen to your staff when a complaint of sexual harassment or mental health issues are made. Working with so much pressure when suffering from anxiety is bad enough without being ridiculed.
