    i assume its general sales assistant stuff, folding clothes, serving customers, greeting and welcoming them, checking stocks etc.... as for pay, i have yet to start i imagine i will get told all this on my first day which is next week, im on here asking for help and not a single person has helped yet so **** you , don't be mad cause i got a better job than you.
    I wish I could spend ten hours straight folding clothes and arranging outfits.

    It would definitely not be the most mind-numbingly boring experience of my life.

    The discount varies massively depending on the company. A shop I used to work at gave 50%, so it isn't unheard of at all.

    Congrats.

    75% does sound high but I got 40% at Urban Outfitters and I'm sure my friend got over 50% when she worked at Ted Baker so it could be right.

    You'll be doing just general crap retail work. It's boring and long hours but hey, a job's a job so congrats. Probably more than likely you'll be getting paid minimum wage or a few pence above.

    75% off sounds a bit unrealistic . . .
    It's true...

    What the job entails? A possible life time of stereotypical mockery and abuse left right and centre! I'd have more respect for you if you were a piano player in a brothel quite frankly...

    There's not too many around.. but the name is around.. www.jackwills.co.uk

    It's a middle class 'Fabulously British' store selling clothes aimed at preserving tradition, associated with private school. It's the 'university outfitters'or the 'outfitters to the gentry.'

    It depends upon where in the country you are, for example the nearer to London you get the higher the hourly rate will be, so if you can state at which branch you'll be working that might make it easier to work out what you pay might be?

    You really shouldn't be getting annoyed with people on TSR who don't know what your own rate of pay is. You should have got off your a*se and found that out for yourself instead of blaming other people. You seem like the typical Jack Wills type.
    As for discount, I used to work at Fat Face, and we got 75% off. However, we had to pay for our uniform, so they technically were still making money out of their own staff.
    All retailers are businesses at the end of the day, so please, not for one second think you are special because you work at jack wills. I understand that many of you Jack Wills/A&F/Hollister types think you are Gods gift and the sun shines out of your a**hole, but you are very much mistaken.
