  • Best thing

    Personally, i love being customer orientated and enjoy the social aspect of interacting with my team and most my customers. Nero used to have a really strong culture within their company, they invested in their staff. But this has changed Alot in the last few years.

    Worst thing

    All the stores I've worked in a very physically intensive, labour intensive stores. Working 9 hours on one 20 minute break. Constantly on my feet, carrying heavy tubs of crockery, and handling coffee machines, im quite young in my life but honestly, my body is wrecked. Its a disgrace we don't get longer, paid breaks, especially when less intensive job roles get longer breaks. I have to shovel my lunch or dinner in and be back on my feet all in 20 min. Rotas change weekly due to being sales based. I rarely ever get a weekend off and haven't been given opportunity to progress career wise in 4 years, ive worked with the company for 6.
