    I worked at Home Retail full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Home Retail Group are a fair and good employer. They expect a very high standard of work, professionalism and commitment from their staff but recognise and reward excellent performance very well. They support their staff providing good training and always try to promote from within. They offer good opportunities to move between departments and within the group. Senior management effectively communicate all changes in company objectives so all management grades on clear on what has changed and why. A first rate retailer and exceptional employer.

    Cons

    They are sometimes unrealistic in their expectations of what their teams can deliver in tight timescales given. This can frustration within teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give teams more realistic timescales to meet deadlines so the quality and quantity of output is maximised.

    Pros

    Some decent co workers.

    Easy job.

    Cons

    Pay is awful.

    No career development.

    It is basically a click for Widnes people.

    In a rough Widnes suburb which is uninspiring.

    Managers are chavs with no real experience as 18 year olds get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much to say.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
