UNIQLO Employee Review
not the best
As an entry level retail job, Uniqlo are one of the more difficult companies to work for. Insanely high standards mean you end up doing a stupid amount of overtime, pay is sub-standard, and they expect you to drop everything for work. Cancel holidays at short notice sometimes, and everyone in management has a superiority complex despite the fact they do very little. Have to admit progression opportunities are decent, but again it depends on who is in your management team as they are the ones who assess you. Also the pay in London was below the national minimum wage until April 2019, but is only just higher than it now, so very poor pay. If you're looking for casual work you can get better pay and less hassle elsewhere.

overwork, overtime, atmosphere
Well, the job in UNIQLO SG is not easy as a Japanese company you'll have to adapt with the how Japanese work. But overall, career wise I recommend Uniqlo as the company gives all staff 4 times chance to get promoted in a year and gives a very good benefits for its employees.
So, I had applied for the part-time retail associate at uniqlo. I went for the interview and they said that I would have to work 20 hours a week. The work timing will be flexible and I would be to work on any day. All of this looked very appealing to me as the requirements were quite easy to follow for a student, which I was when I applied for the job. The interviewer said that I would be able to work on any day at any-time, as long as I complete 20 hours in a week. When I got the job and read the contract, it stated that "You are required to work at least 4 days per week at a total minimum of 20 hours per week as per duty roster drawn up by your Superior. Any non-working days shall be deemed as off days.", all quoted from my contract, nothing changed by me. When I join, they tell me on the first day I have to work on the WEEKENDS, COMPULSORY. And on the weekends, I have to work until the shop closes at the end of thee day. None of this was specified by the interviewer and written in the contract. I was like okay, a bit of a stretch, but I can deal with those terms. When I tell my superior my duty roster, they state that my breaks are NOT included in my 20 hours. Now, in my previous part-time jobs, this was not a thing and even it was they would specify it when applying. THE PEOPLE AT UNIQLO TELL SOOOO MANY REQUIREMENTS OF THE WORK AFTER APPLYING.When I join the job, I was told that I would be entitled to a free set of clothes. I got NONE OF THAT. All the entitlements they said I might have were all LIES.ABSOLUTELY ANGRY AND THE LACK OF INFORMATION GIVEN TO THE EMPLOYER - more...
The pay was decent: $8.20 per hour
