    Pros

    Flexible hours, understood university and travel commitments, altered my contract as and when I needed it changing, never had any problems with pay, diverse range of colleagues, discount card is a bonus, colleagues all friendly - lots of work nights out.

    Cons

    Working on tills can be boring but it's the same in any supermarket I guess, there wasn't enough space to have my own locker which was annoying but everybody was very trustworthy so not too much of a big issue.

    Pros

    You are able to work as many hours as you can. Allows full flexibility, so especially good if you are a student, or, if you have no ambitions.

    Cons

    An extremely dead end job. There's is nothing more absurd than waking up early in the morning, walking to your wardrobe, then noticing that fluorescent green shirt staring back at you.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are good, however, some managers believe they are gods gift to the retail industry. This attitude leads to the workforce hating the employer and company alike.


  9. Nice company to work for

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere to work in and very good benefits for employees. Opportunities to progress available if you're interested in moving up the ranks.

    Cons

    Some managers not bothered about lower level employees, just seen as anothrr number. No sick pay. Lower salary than some other supermarkets.
