I have been working at Jewson full-time (More than 10 years)
None. They say things will change but they never do. Only the faces change. Large national company owned by a French parent company, so job security is pretty good unless you don't play ball or your face doesn't fit.
Expect you to work in your own time for no extra pay. Bonus system grossly unfair and unobtainable. Branch Managers are nothing more than back of the classroom bullies with zero charisma. Haven't met one with a true business brain yet. Branches work against each other. Managers snipe about each other behind backs. Stock system is ancient and a complete shambles. Branch properties are old, run down and often in a state of disrepair. Company preaches health and safety but give the employees no time to operate using the safety measures expected. I can go on all night.
Advice to Management
Grow up. Stop acting like bully boys. Higher management need to stop making threats to lower management. Get rid of the Sales League tables that drive branches to stab each other in their backs. Sort out the ever over stretch transport system. Get more delivery trucks, forklift trucks, staff and much needed equipment, and get rid of company cars that sit on site doing nothing all day.
