Default Anyone worked for Harding Brothers Retail?

Hi all, new here! I recently received an email, I have a telephone interview with Harding tomorrow afternoon. I'm excited as this would be a fantastic opportunity but am well aware that it is hard work. I just wanted to hear if anyone has worked with them? I saw a thread on here about them but wanted to see if anyone else had any opinions. Someone said 1 day off in 9 months? Because that really is ridiculous if it's true - what's the point in "seeing the world" if you have one day off in 9 months? Anyway, any tips or advice for the interview would be great and just want to hear from others about their experience with Harding. Many thanks and have a good day!

you dont have day off. if you get it would be half day or a whole day IF you succeed amazing seling results. so dont expect a day off.

shops are closed in ports, so IF you dont have other things like restock, drills, training, etc you can go out and see the world. no one is going to pay you to have vacation.

Shop staff do get a good amount of time off when the ship is in port. I have friends there and they got to see a lot and if you are tired you dont have to go out and can either relax or sleep during the extended break.

forgive me if my reply sounded weird, that was not my intention.

I just wanted to clearify that all hiring agents are promoting the "see the world free" thing which makes many people think that "i will work a couple of hours and then i go for ...."

there are position onboard that almost never get out of the ships, like laundry guys and there are positions that have the ability to get out almost in every port. retail, broadcast, dance & entertainment, casino are some of them.

sorry again if my previous mail seemed rude.

Dear Friends,

I have been offered Retail Sales Job from Harding Retail for Monthly Salary for 693 Pounds (plus commissions).
Any Idea, how much will I make in total in a Month including Incentives (Average a Month).
Also , any review about Harding Retail (aka. Company's working ethics, treatment of people working for them, work schedule. environment etc. etc.
It will be a blessing if somebody from Retail on Cruise can help !!!
Any better option than Harding ?? If any ??
