    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei The Hut Group gearbeitet

    (Übersetzt aus dem Englischen)

    Pros

    Viel Verantwortung, aber kein wirkliches Training. Ehrlich gesagt gab es nicht viele Vorteile und ich würde stark empfehlen, sich von diesem Ort fernzuhalten.

    Kontras

    Es gibt keine nachvollziehbare Hierarchie, die Leute, die am längsten dort sind, scheinen tun zu können, was sie möchten, und alle anderen zu „managen“, obwohl sie keine Erfahrung im Leiten von Menschen haben oder auf irgendeine Art qualifizierter sind als Andere. Zwischen den Mitarbeitern herrscht viel Konkurrenz und es kann ziemlich böse werden. Mobbing ist auch einige Male aufgetreten.

    Rat an das Management

    Ich würde vorschlagen, dass Sie dafür sorgen, nur qualifiziertes Personal als Manager einzustellen und mehr für die Zufriedenheit Ihrer Mitarbeiter zu tun. Die Atmosphäre im Büro ist alles andere als fröhlich.

    Pros

    The company is growing, office is newly refurbished.
    Dress down.

    Kontras

    There is a chronic high turnover in this company. Some people in senior positions are bad at their jobs, and lacking experience. Poor employee benefits - don't expect anything but your salary. People are offered made up job titles to make them sound more senior.

    Rat an das Management

    Look at the people in senior positions and consider whether they are competent. Review your employee benefits as they are not competitive.

    Pros

    Young atmosphere
    Can be promoted quickly (if highly liked by management rather than if you’re good)

    Kontras

    Parking (40 minutes journey from car park to office)
    Longest service staff are promoted as well liked rather than promoted based on skills/knowledge.
    Long working hours expected, pay doesn’t reflect.
    No structure to pay across the group
    Over rated titles which are meaningless
    Unprofessional senior management team - lack of confidentiality
    Beauty and Health division always favourites.
    CEO flashes his new car every week by front door.

    Rat an das Management

    Pick a decent well respected team rather than your longest serving friends. Respect the group as a whole rather than Beauty/Health being favourites. Learn to teach management to treat staff correctly rather than having the worst staff turnover rate in the UK. Provide some fair parking or allow alternative work offices (remotely).

    Pros

    It gives you an insight into how truly awful a company can be which makes you more appreciative of jobs in the future.

    Kontras

    Where to even begin. The common theme seems to be “good for experience” but to be honest I’d avoid it like the plague, whether you’re an experienced professional or a new grad. I guess it’s a good eye-opener as to how bad a company can be run. It fills you with confusion, self-doubt, paranoia, frustration and the urge to reach for a bottle opener in an evening on a regular basis.

    Management is none-existent. I think this is probably the main reason why everyone leaves around 9 minutes after they’re hired. There is zero direction and the culture is simply dreadful. A member of my team was once off for a week and the manager had no idea they’d even been gone. Only short-term goals are important as everyone’s main focus is personal career progression before they inevitably move to another team or company. Got a long-term plan for improvement or growth? Take that ridiculous attitude elsewhere, we don’t want any of that at THG. Managers either delegate work and take zero interest or just have no involvement at all. I think in 6 months my manager emailed me a total of 10 times... great leadership skills. He also never came to any meeting but instead asked me to run them. When I had a 1-2-1 with him (they were always deeply unpleasant encounters) I told him we had brands on the phone every week complaining about our pricing and he said “we need to be more piratey”. What do you even say to something like that?

    You will not receive an annual review and there is no bonus structure whatsoever. The company once conducted a staff survey, they ignored everyone’s main concerns and cherry picked some information. They came up with a whole new bonus system but naturally it was never implemented. I asked about a pay rise after 12 months of juggling multiple jobs (which I wasn’t hired for) and was met with the response “I didn’t get a pay rise recently so why should you?”... Brilliant. A quick heads up; the words ‘opportunity’ and ‘above and beyond’ are just fancy words for do two jobs for one wage. Oh and you will be expected to cope with this new role even though it was someone else’s full-time job right up until they saw the light and escaped. Hiring new members of staff to replace the ones that leave is simply not something that happens. So you want to be a buyer? Why not be a merchandiser too!

    I’m sorry I know I’m going on a bit here but I’m literally just scratching the surface. When I first started their excuse for not hiring new staff was “there’s not enough parking”. Then it was “there aren’t enough desks”. The company is now located at Manchester airport so there is parking, but it’s a 15 minute shuttle bus and a 10 minute walk from the office, oh and you get to pay for that privilege. Obviously.

    The chain of command is nothing short of abysmal. Are you related to someone high up or tight with the powers at be... great, weasel away and be rewarded for it. Are you honest, professional and liked by the whole of your team? Yeah you’ll probably be pushed out of the company via an email with no genuine reason.

    Don’t gobble up the rubbish you see on social media or believe the dream that’s sold to you. THG is just one very bad nightmare, only in reverse. You can’t wait to get home and go to sleep and you dread waking up because you know the nightmare with begin all over again.

    Rat an das Management

    The managers are all so deluded that any advice would either go straight over their heads or fall on deaf ears.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei The Hut Group gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    - I was able to work and make good connections with a great manager and team members. Unfortunately, managers in the office aren't given much authority in their positions and could not help us with any problems or concerns we had.
    - I had a good work/life balance because it was important to my manager, and upper management didn't pay attention to us or how much we worked anyway.
    - We had ONE nice company party at Tucanos.

    Kontras

    ***Working at The Hut Group was a nightmare of an experience that I wouldn't wish on anyone. I am writing this review to hopefully help prevent anyone from considering working here, ever***

    - Upper management is full of deceitful, selfish, and manipulative liars. Nothing that is promised will ever come to pass. Raises, bonuses, commission, promises of new offices, new hires, or anything related is an outright lie. It was completely normal for employees to be cheated out of THOUSANDS of dollars that were rightfully earned and promised via bonuses, promotions, pay raises, etc. The company loves to promise over and over again that things are simply "pending approval" when there are no plans for them to ever go through. And they won't even apologize for it.
    - "Promotions" will happen as people quit and aren't replaced, but it just means picking up more work for no additional compensation or increase of authority. This is the standard expectation of the company.
    - The company has no trust in their American employees and consistently sent in people from the UK to "fix" things, rather than giving any Americans any position of authority or leadership. There was a strong sense of Xenophobia from the UK with the disrespect that was showed towards Americans, but maybe that's how the employees are treated company-wide anyway?
    - The company will always tell you they have "big plans" for the future, but they will never tell you what those plans are. There is zero transparency. You'll never hear from or see the CEO, the only way to get any information is via Instagram, to look at the constant vacations being taken on a private jet while employees are being ignored.
    - In December 2018, right before Christmas, half of the Utah office was laid off with no warning or reasoning why. These were extremely talented employees that were doing much more for the company than the company had ever done for them. After that, the majority of the rest of the office began to quit, learning quickly that they could find better, higher paying opportunities elsewhere with much better companies.
    - The organization of day-to-day projects was a disaster. Almost all of the work done was with people in other offices, having to communicate with them in the UK or New York. There was no timeline of anything, and everything they wanted was last minute. Every office did things so differently and did not want to work on developing a company-wide uniform system for project organization.
    - The company has no goals other than sales. They don't care about developing strong brands, adapting to different markets internationally, or even helping consumers through their products. Some of the employees may care about these things, but any attempts to put effort into them will get shut down by upper management.
    - There is no trust in the employees' work ethic. They do not allow working from home or remotely, and you will be monitored and judged if you aren't consistently coming in early and staying late.
    - Human Resources does absolutely nothing. There was no HR in our office, and anyone I ever reached out to in the UK or Kentucky in HR was no help.
     They wouldn't even respond to my emails. They don't care about retention, in their eyes everyone is easily replaceable. Don't expect any kind of job perks, the discounts are garbage and any kind of company party will be an employee-funded potluck lunch. They don't even clean the office bathrooms, provide sufficient parking, or provide adequate heat/AC in the building.
    - Overall, you can't trust this company for anything. Please work ANYWHERE else. Anyone is much better off unemployed than working at the Hut Group, ever.

    It's been made very clear over and over again what needs to change. Start doing it.

    Pros

    I learned a lot while working there. Each day was different and pushed and challenged me. Luckily, I had a very good team with a lot of experience and unity.

    Kontras

    They don't pay as much as they work you. We would push 60-80 hour weeks sometimes. Management needs to learn how to communicate better with teams and not correct mistakes in front of the entire team during meetings. They are more concerned with sales than they are with personal growth. They promise quick promotion, most of the time it is because people leave the company, so if you stay long enough, you will probably move into another spot. Oh, and without telling anyone, they let the Utah office go and moved to New York and hired another team there. They tend to do that sometimes.

    Rat an das Management

    Communicate expectations (not only sales) to teams. If you need to correct something, fix it in private.
