What our people say – Testimonials
Store Manager, Swansea
After climbing the ladder and working up to a Team Leader, working in every department including Technology, Office Supplies and Furniture I was promoted to lead the Swansea and Newport stores as a Multi-Site Store Manager.
Office Outlet has given me the opportunity to learn new skills and progress within a company I love. Recently, I have found our product promotions are getting better and better as well as changing and adapting frequently for our customers.
I still find the company a fun place to work and although demanding, keeps me on my toes! My Regional Manager is very supportive and always has the time to help and support me whenever I need it. I love the flexibility of working for Office Outlet where no two days are the same.
I am currently encouraging my team to be the best they can be and look forward to moving into a Regional Manager position in the future.
Store Support Centre
This happened shortly after the transition to Office Outlet, and this change is testament to the positive changes and influence of Office Outlet, Hilco and the new Senior Leadership Team; they acknowledge hard work and dedication and reward accordingly.
Obviously there have been a lot of transformations within a short space of time, but this has certainly been for the better as we now have initiatives such as ‘Ideas Outlet’, the Weekly Huddle in the Store Support Centre and a brand-new website.
The amount of skills and knowledge I have learned in the past few months have meant that no two days are the same and this has helped me to grow in my role.
One of the things I love about Office Outlet is that no opinion goes unnoticed and if you ask for something, your voice is heard and responded to. I fully trust the new Senior Leadership Team; they make us feel as though nothing is impossible and I’m so excited for what lies ahead.
The culture at Office Outlet is relaxed and informal but also hard-working and professional. The Company has a real family-feel and staff take time to get to know one another. Although out office is separated from the office floor, you always hear staff saying good morning to each other and having a good laugh and a giggle together.
Our emphasis always has been, and will continue to be, focussed on our customers and how we can give them the best possible service and experience. All the people who work at Office Outlet are fully aware of this and this adds to the family-feel as we’re all in it together.
Some of the benefits available to me are online discounts and a store discount card, shopping vouchers awarded for long service, free eye care vouchers, childcare vouchers and access to the Retail Trust (a free, confidential wellbeing service for all involved in retail).
I see my future at Office Outlet to be a positive one; hopefully becoming a fully pledged People Advisor and therefore continuing to support the staff in our Stores and to help them grow.
DC General Manager
Working at the Watling Park CDC we have a great team and multiskilled workforce, this enables us to deliver a high service level to the Office Outlet stores to ensure they have the stock availability to meet the demand of the day to day sales as well as the great offers and promotions they run.
Through the onsite training and development of all the warehouse team we strive to achieve an efficient and safe working environment for all employees at the Distribution Centre.
Personally, I found the company a great business to work for and it has given me the opportunity and experience to develop my career through the supply chain and reach my current position.
