    I worked at Best and Less part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fairly flexible, casual retail job.
    Decent pay, good pay on Sundays, much better pay than other situations I have heard.
    Would recommend for those looking for a casual job.

    Cons

    Not many really. Apart from early-ish mornings, most things were good. Managers were stuffed about a bit, a great manager was moved and replaced without asking any lower staff.

    Pros

    Store manager was wonderful and understanding, very flexible. Very generous meal breaks.

    Cons

    Pay below most others in the same role with other companies. Not a huge company so some weeks you may not have work at all. Not much room for personal development.

    I worked at Best and Less (less than an year)

    Pros

    Kind staff, job isn't necessarily difficult and doesn't get much more difficult as you progress, great pay especially for casual staff, good hours (at first.), smart uniform.

    Cons

    Management are VERY focused on budget and making sales and have little regard to the needs of employees, will cut your hours whenever they please so that they can make money, favouritism is highly given to part time staff, often disregard employee requests for time off, ask employees to come to work sometimes within two hours or less of a shift starting, lack of communication, don't care for casual staff. My store closed down and my managers NEVER once told me. I was dropped immediately after Christmas (Boxing Day) and removed from the roster, which happened to NO other employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your casual staff and don't palm them off as your spare resources.

    I have been working at Best and Less

    Pros

    Can be rewarding
    Competitive salary
    Enjoy working with the people
    a trusted brand to promote
    a stable and secure company to work for

    Cons

    Bit sexist
    Could be more fresh and innovative, tends to be stuck in the old ways
    The hours of work could easily be changed, but just haven't been
    Store management work more hours than head office staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could review the hours that store management need to work, rostering could be implemented for store management to eliminate 80 hour work weeks.
    Just this small improvement could improve morale within your stores.
