Former Employee - Checkout Operator  in  Godalming, England (UK)

Pros

- You get to meet amazing people.
- There's a light and non-corporate feel (for example dressing up on red nose day).
- There's a real active effort to make the colleagues matter. The company's policy is that if the employees are happy, so will the customers.
- Good, mostly worthwhile, training.
- Lots of opportunities for extra work.

Cons

- Breaks were often late or supervisors didn't reply to reply to requests very quickly sometimes.
- The till systems were quite old.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Spend some money upgrading the tills and making them modern - it'll look better as well as being easier and quicker to use.
- Make sure employees get breaks on time.
- Allow anyone over 18 to approve an under 18 to sell alcohol; it's the person who's under 18's job to ID the customer.
- Ask employees before making big changes - for example a load of tills were removed when we really needed them.
- When a colleague quits, allow the store to hire someone new if they need them.
