    B&M Warehouse operative, January 2023

  • Best thing

    Easy access to holiday pay. Get toilet breaks whenever you want. Decent wage.

    Worst thing

    Short and UNPAID breaks. Don’t get Bank Holidays or national holidays off such as Easter (Christmas Day you get off though) - these are not payed more either (e.g. double pay or time and a half). Cash-only canteen for food - the canteen gets to shut early on a Bank Holiday but we have to keep working, regardless.

  • Best thing

    Certain staff members

    Worst thing

    The managers, the pay, little to no respect from customers, it’s always cold in the shop and no paid breaks.
