Before university I worked for Wallis, which wasn't a bad job, apart from the extremely rude customers that used to frequent the store.
I am now undertaking a placement year, and am currently working for the PR department of Karen Millen, I have fallen in love with most of their products really. The 5.30 alarm is the downside to this excellent opportunity, but hey ho beggars can't be choosers.
While my placement is on the verge of glamorous, my weekend job, which I now finally have is not so much. It seems Wallis could not live without me, so have taken me back, thank goodness. However we are now situated in BHS along with Dorothy Perkins and Burton.
I know what your thinking, BHS, why on earth are Wallis, Dotty P's and Burton in there? Well as you may or may not know they are all part of Arcadia and so is BHS.
[image: bhs.co.uk]A BHS store in Uxbridge had a huge refit, with a brand new concept, that has made it super modern. And thanks to Phillip Green the BHS store in Basildon, Essex is one of the lucky stores to get the refit.
I must say it's like working in a completely different place, so modern and inviting and it also has a cafe =]
It's not as glamorous as it should be just yet, as the other BHS employees and I are working in a lot of dust, but on the positive side there are some fairly good-looking builders, which is always nice when it's a quite day.
If you live near a newly refurbished BHS I suggest you go in and take a look you will not believe your hopefully dust free (if it's finished) eyes.
