Here’s a recent review that mentions management:

  • Best thing

    The pay for a store assistant is good for the work required, however don’t underestimate the hard graft. Deputy pay however is ridiculously low considering the amount of responsibilities, and the company tries to keep the extra £4 on top of your hourly wage when you manage the store alone to a minimum

    Worst thing

    Progression seems none existent even though they’re always advertising salaried roles. The responsibilities for a deputy are barely outweighed by an assistant manager but the pay gap is huge. Company targets are unrealistic and cripple the morale of staff
