I learnt a lot with how to deal with customers and fitting rooms as well as working quick and efficiently in a busy environment. Management was not very understanding and quite unprofessional. Most of my co workers were very helpful and helped me gain a good experience. The hardest part for me was to fix everything in a small amount of time however over time became easier. I mostly enjoyed helping the customers and gaining new skills."

Ali says"I bought a full sleeveblack T-shirt which was on sale from stratford store.1 week later I tried to exchange but one black guy on till refused it and stated that it seems it was wore. I told that white cotton is mixed little bit from other cloths while hanged with other cloths that any one can understand. The guy was rude while was talking. The experience I had I promise myself never ever step in Blue Inc and I will share my experience on social media with that cloth picture"
Maria Cook says"Shocking service from Romford store. Returned 4 items bought on promotional 2 for ££. Girl didn’t have a clue. Started refunding, then said she couldn’t coz they were sale items. Receipt has no policy on, just a board with a piece of paper on the till which your suppose to read (obviously whilst your board queuing/waiting?!!!) explained that I bought them in Basildon and was told I could return with my receipt. She phoned her manager, who said I had to come back the next day?! I said no as I had already paid parking and wasn’t coming back again. She then said I can’t deal with you and told me to go back to Basildon - seriously. I was fuming. Went to Basildon, paid to park again and luckily 2 girls who knew what they were doing, eventually got me a full refund, after ringing their manager who advised promo goods are returnable as they are not sale. Advised to complain to head office?! Good luck getting an email or answer on the phone. Absolute worst customer service, rang trading standards now as this chain needs closing. Oh and the email address that trustpilot use to keep the retailer updated - that don’t work either!!"
Zach says"Returned 2 items to the refund address and heard nothing from them for over 20 days! Customer service don't respond to emails and noone on the phone after 1 hour! Not sure if it is a fake website or not!"
