Retail Assistant (Former Employee), Leigh, ENGSeptember 30, 2015
Pros: entaiment and get me out house
Cons: long days
Fun work place with one of the best management team. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent co workers sum in my sitution and sum volenteers, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working and learning to build and organise from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew but thats just work

Greedy management poor support. Don't get days off due to lack of staff. They always want more. I've seen managers come and go they never stick it. Head office stinks. All they are interested in are figures.

Retail Support Administrator (Current Employee), WarringtonSeptember 28, 2015
Pros: Bupa health care / perkz
Cons: No opportunity to progress
Long days are filled with fun and laughter with your co workers however we still remain professional at the same time.
You learn new things every day as every day is different.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you get out of the office and can go and advertise that we are a donation station to make people aware that we have a drop off place where they can bring donated items to support people in later life.
