Interessantes Unternehmen und abwechslungsreiche und herausfordernde Tätigkeiten. Hauptsitz etwas antiquiert in einigen Bereichen. Hierarchische Denkweise und Zielerreichungsgrad blockiert Individualität.

A typical day at work would be selling to customers that enter the store. Management is very flexible and fun, but at the same time strict.The most enjoyable part of the job is selling tot he customer and persuading to buy a watch.
Ambiente molto difficile dove riuscire a fare carriera è quasi impossibile . Ragazzi molto competitivi per riuscire a garantirsi una sicurezza lavorativa, precarietà nella struttura interna dove il ricambio del personale è sempre in agguato perdendo di vista umanità e talento di validi collaboratori Poca libertà d’espressione e di azione dovuta a un manager che abusa del ruolo Scaricando doveri responsabilità e mansioni al resto dei collaboratori. Sconsiglia
The company starts projects without completing health and environment risk assessments, hence implementing project configuration mistakes which cause the project to fail. The company has very poor infrastructure to get the job done.
Not team focused, poor management, poor interest on personal development and professional growth. Attitude at the work place unbearable, poor stock control and lack of resilience from managers and brand directors.
Good pay, great management, good vacation and benefits. I wouldn't recommend working here unless you can sit by yourself for 8 hours comfortably as a watchmaker. The office is fun and caring. I have no complaints.
Swatch is a great company to work for, there are lots of exciting things happening around the world every week. There are only a few stores in the UK which makes progression difficult, but if you are willing to relocate it opens many more doors for you.
Overall the Swatchgroup provides a decent work environment for its employees. Retail staff, even though possessing precious experience and rare skill sets are very much seen as replaceable, this 2 year experience has given me very little prospect of growth as an individual.
Ho lavorato quasi un anno in Diantus ( Mendrisio). Ambiente pieno di regole inutili e opprimenti. Ti controllano in continuazione e non c'è serenità nell'ambiente lavorativo. Lavorano tutti con grande costrizione e competizione. Contento di aver dato le dimissioni, non si poteva più vivere così.
Stress, pressioni, voci che girano in continuazione
A typical day consisted of us creating daily goals, and waited for a customer to come in. The typical customer at Swatch are the ones who owned them as kids. We learned how to effectively sell to a customer. There was a lot of trainings, which some would dislike but I personally loved it.
Swatch is great to work for because of all the great benefits they offer. They have a very "family" like culture. They have plenty of room for growth and give the opportunity to those willing to work for it. I learned a lot in management skills and to provide outstanding customer service. I mainly enjoy working with my team and making it a fun environment for them on a daily basis. The hard part with Swatch is their not realistic about their industry and DM usually puts unrealistic expectations on SM. Even when certain expectations are highly met, they find a way to still not be happy about it and don't give store managers work/life balance.
Worked in the post room some years back and would like to stress that the manager of the whole building didn't have any people management skills that breathed confidence into any of the teams apart from putting more work, tons of pressure/stress and burning the people out! No extra pay, very tight on the once a year bonus (if you even notice it for your hard work!) If you wanted to buy a watch and get 20% off... then tough as London head office staff would likely of bought it!
My unhappy experience working in the post room was that i discovered that other departments were entitled to tea breaks yet, the post staff would get the one 30 minutes in 8 hours! On Tuesdays you could be likely unpacking up to 700 watches from two bags by yourself... then be late for data entry. Sometimes it didn't feel like being in a team. Yet, it wasn't just opening post, it was inputting all the customer details, choosing broker accounts onto their SAP system (as fast as you can) before doing despatch jobs for other departments plus, photographing as many brands of watches front/back as possible then at the end of the day crating all the despatch all up for the couriers. The jobs/demands of production increased and the pay stayed the same flat rate (not much above minimum wage), even when helping other departments doing invoicing... no appreciation, no thanks afterwards.
My own manager didn't have correct people management skills neither, could shout at people/humiliate them in-front of their peers and it just caused a massive atmosphere problem not only within teams but within the wholemehr... building! Was glad to get out of there as it was a place of dread rather than feeling alright to be there.
So unless, Swatch Group has improved dramatically (of which i doubt very much), then stay away from this company unless you work in London or are desperate to receive the strife to pay the mortgage or rent.
This might be a big global organization but when you work there, you realise that the big manager cares only to bleed you for it's worth from working there.Weniger
