  • 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.

    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.
