    I worked at Halfords part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was an excellent part time job whilst i studied at school.
    Reasonable pay for my age.
    There were incentives.
    Most part time and senior staff were a laugh.

    Cons

    Very little option for progression.
    Some staff had really poor hygiene.
    Some staff were a little too big for their boots!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regional managers should show some attention to the shop floor staff, afterall it is they who are the face of the company when dealing with customers.
