    I have been working at Halfords part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful and the sense of community is great. My managers place me where they believe I will impact the store the most which they seem to do in all the stores I have worked in.

    Cons

    Had to go through head office to get re-employed after leaving for a year even though the management of the store wanted me back!

    Advice to Management

    Try to increase wages as these are relatively low for the amount and type of work that the staff do.
