I have been working at Clas Ohlson

Pros

Job rotation keeps the day interesting and varied. Fresh fruit everyday to encourage healthy eating.

Cons

Although there are team briefings every morning, it is quite easy to be out the loop if you are not a full timer. Information regarding regarding new opportunities/ promotions etc is not always filtered down to everyone. No real career advancement opportunities. And the stock room is a nightmare, more likely to win on the lottery than find what you are looking for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More effective communication- consider sending a weekly email with the plan of the week and any upcoming changes etc so that everyone is on the same page.

Training opportunities offered to all staff not just a select few. Do not assume that people will not be interested.

Consider a more effective stockroom solution and price checking facilities, maybe handheld devices.
