    Pros

    Fantastic IT systems means ease and accuracy of report data available.
    Good at sharing what's happening throughout the business and downloading from Senior Management.
    Highly positive and friendly culture.
    Fair to their staff and suppliers. Will always aim to promote from within before externally.
    Good opportunities to move between departments and within the HRG group to/from Homebase.
    Excellent working environment - beautiful, light, modern offices with great restaurant.

    Cons

    Often expect too much from their staff - hours can be very long (including weekends at certain periods). In Merchandise, all team members have to be in work for 7am to prepare reports for Monday's Trading Meeting.
    Their current lacklustre trading performance is of concern although i feel confident they have the right leadership and strategy in place to turn it around.
    Pension scheme not now offered to new starters


  2. opportunities are available if you put yourself out there and have the right support system in store

    Pros

    There are opportunities to advance to management internally, there is a lot of flexibility in hours and most times can be work to accommodate you as far as there is prior notice.
    There is also different roles to fit different personalities and also to gain experience in different sections of the store.

    Cons

    management need to find more creative ways to motivate staff and also to hear what the staff may feel is missing from the store.

    Advice to Management

    management need to find creative ways to motivate their staff
    they should also talk to their staff more often to find out what they think is missing from the store
    help staff and give them more ways to move up in store rather get stuck in the same position and no time to advance through steps.
