  • Best thing

    The team I work with

    Worst thing

    The notice on shifts. The way the store is run. The underdeploment of staff...

    • £9.52 per hour
    • 25 or older
    • 1–3 years experience
    3.8/10
  • Best thing

    Worst thing

    Team leader, June 2020

    • Manages people
    • £22,400 per year, working a 39 hour week
    • 25 or older
    • More than 3 years experience
    8.9/10
  • Best thing

    The people I work with, they treat me well. My supervisor always checks I'm okay and is (usually) open to changing shifts if other commitments come up (funerals, christening, etc...)

    Worst thing

    Sometimes it feels like management put earning money from sales as more important than our wellbeing (e.g. a customer will tell and swear at us but management won't do anything about it such as asking them to leave). When asked to do longer hours (8/9 hours) you sometimes have to almost 'fight' for your breaks which can get very annoying.
