    Shameless at times

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Sheffield, England (UK)

    I have been working at Holland & Barrett Retail part-time for more than a year


    Pros: If you work at a good store then you can end up with some excellent colleagues and interesting, regular, customers. It certainly improves social skills. Knowledge… Cons: The management from Area upwards are generally self-serving fools who will push on anybody below them to increase their own bonuses come year end. They don't… Advice to Senior Management: Hire people who can actually manage payroll, HR and PR. Stop creating a culture of store vs store and one of honesty, where a person higher… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
