Pros: only benefit is the 50% discount.. if you actually use any of the products.
Cons: contracts, management, career progression, shifts, too target-driven
Worked there for a few years.. I hated it with a passion, I felt no drive to get up and go to work.. in fact I dreaded it.
The contracts they offer are ridiculous. Mine was 4 hours..That's 4 hours a week.. How is someone meant to live on 4 hours a week?
The fact that they do not follow their values or ''Ethics''. all this ' Activate self esteem etc' – more... in fact they do the opposite. They use you & then drop you when they feel like it..
False promises.. Only being on a 4 hour contract I continually asked for a larger contract and was promised, on several occasions, that my contract would be put up. This never happened.
The management were okay... but they were never 'to the point'. They would tip-toe around and were never honest with you. They were all also very '2 faced' I found. Considering I covered at a number of stores, the majority of the managers, and assistant managers, were all very 2 faced and vindictive..
The shifts they offer are also ridiculous, if you have to travel some distance to go to work it really isn't worth going in at all. They would give shifts that were for 2 or 3 hours, basically, to cover lunches.
It's also very target driven, you basically feel like you have to force people to spend money, or to purchase one of the stores 'Loyalty cards' or get moaned at for not 'trying'..
In my opinion AVOID working for this company like the plague!
- They expect too much from you, and give you nothing in return. – less
