Overall reviews at Clarks

4.0
Retail Sales Associate | Milton Keynes | 14 Jan 2020
Good as a part time job for students
A typical day will include interacting with a range of customers and helping them find shoes that fit them best. This is especially important on the children's department. The hardest part of the job is the initial training, once you become confident in fitting shoes it becomes easier. It's not all about fitting shoes though, there's usually lots to be done behind the scenes in the stock room too so there's a variety of activities.

Good pay, good hours, nice staff
I really enjoyed my experience with clarks, I would have hoped I would have stayed on after the back to school season but unfortunatley that wasn't the case. Great overall place to work.

Customer Service Representative | Swindon | 29 Jun 2016
productive and fun workplace
I feel that Clarks is a great company to work for. I have learned a number of skills that I can use for the future, such as customer service skills and operating the tills. My co-workers are excellent to work with. they're friendly, easy to get along with and the work hard as a team. The management are also excellent. They listen and take on board your opinions, and are willing to swap shifts and work around you. The hardest part of my job is keeping the shop floor tidy at peak selling times. on weekends it can become hectic which makes it difficult to keep constantly tidy, but we always manage to. The most enjoyable part of my job is learning new skills and helping customers out. It's a great feeling to receive customer satisfaction.

Part time covering weekends and school holidays | Cheshire Oaks | 29 Aug 2019
Fun, Busy and Social workplace.
Great company to work for as a whole, although doesn't provide staff with uniform which can be costly to keep replacing. Staff atmosphere is great and management is engaging and helpful.
ProsGreat Training, Nice Store, Good Breaks
ConsNot much room to advance further.

Sales Advisor | Hertfordshire | 12 Sep 2014
fun workplace
good place to work albeit a little bit stressful during the 'back to school period'. management at times lack the insight to allocate more workers to particular sections when it was at its busiest. because of this, we were constantly getting out of work late.
Prosdiscount on shoes
Consconstant overtime

Sales Assistant | Bexleyheath | 15 Dec 2014
Clarks
A typical day at work would be dealing and assisting with customers no matter what they require and ensuring that they leave satisfied. During my two years at Clarks I have learned how to deal with both kids and adults in a professional but friendly manner whilst still doing my job of selling shoes. The management and Co-workers were both very friendly and approachable if ever you needed anything. I did not find anything that challenging but enjoyed every single second of it
ProsDiscounts, salary

Merchandiser | Sai Wan, Hong Kong Island | 1 Jun 2016
Strong trustworthy shoe brand that keeps true to their roots.
Open Management, since it is a local office, nice friendly environment, highly motivated and hard working, yet the balans work private life is respected. The most difficult part of the Job was the commuting and the nice parts of the job is that you are part of the decision making of the region product line.
ProsNice casual friendly enviroment
ConsLocated in Breda and I live in Utrecht-Terwijde.

Senior Designer | Waltham, MA | 13 Jul 2020
I was recently laid off from Clarks. So this certainly colors this review.
I worked at Clarks for 9 years as a men's footwear designer. I worked on the lower-priced Collection shoes and even though my designs were huge money-makers for the company, I was never promoted. Still, I liked my colleagues there very much and I enjoyed doing good, productive work with them. Unfortunately, this company has undergone many leadership changes and so the culture was continually shaken up. The efforts to transform the company to be global were poorly managed and modernization of the e-commerce model was clumsy. I still love the brand and I hope they can pull out of the pandemic crisis intact and able to flourish.
ProsComfortable office spaces
ConsManagement's distrust of staff

Questions and answers about Clarks

What is the interview process like at Clarks?
Asked 17 Mar 2017
There was a group interview to begin with where we were split into two smaller groups, had to make note of selling points of some shoes and then present to everyone else. Then in the one to one interview they will ask things like what do you consider good customer service and something you were able to achieve despite tough circumstances and how you were able to overcome them. It was quite informal and a little awkward at first but it soon became more comfortable.
Answered 3 Aug 2021
It was a group interview and we had to choose a shoe in the store and pitch it to the group - explaining why we liked it and good reasons to buy it. We then just had a casual conversation between the group to get to know one another. Everyone was friendly and it was not intimidating at all. I then received a phone call the same week, offering me the job!

Do you have to sell x amount off shoes or hour?
Asked 1 Aug 2017
Yes, they are very strict on targets.
Answered 11 Feb 2019
There is no set amount you have to sell, but they do love their targets in the amount of shoe care, handbags and multi sales (more than one pair per sale) they like you to get above a certain percentage every day or week or month. But it depends on the store and the manager how strict they are about it.
