    B&M Employee, May 2021

  • Best thing

    The breaks are adequate, some managers are ok and others expect too much of you. Very easy job.

    Worst thing

    The only stressful thing is trying to help a customer or being on the till when it’s busy. But if you can handle yourself then it’s fine. Can get boring when there are no jobs left to do and you have to face up the store.
