    Pros

    Staff at my branch were treated with respect and hard work was recognised by management

    Cons

    Pay was low but not too dissimilar to other supermarket jobs. The opportunities for promotion should be highlighted more.

    Advice to Management

    Generally doing a good job and continue to recognise that your customer facing staff are your brand ambassadors

  7. Good training and flexible working patterns.

    Pros

    Great training. Fairly good pay. Opportunities to undertake overtime and work in other departments. Friendly colleagues and managers. Opportunities to progress.

    Changing of shifts at short notice. Team leaders and managers forgetting when lunch breaks are. Work can become repetitive. Communication is not always that good.

    Pros

    Unskilled, various and wide hours available, good amount of training, bonus at the end of the year, very strong "team" mentality

    Cons

    Getting a day off approved needs to have 4 weeks notice in advance, as does swapping a shift.
