Great company but work needs to be done

Customer Assistant (Current Employee)
Durrington, England (UK)

Prosgreat company to work for and the pay is really good if you are in one of their local stores. Really easy to transfer to other stores and even easier to move up within the company.

ConsThe uniform is awful - polo shirts and black trousers; nice if we were in shirt and ties like every other supermarket name. the workload is too much because some stores are so under staffed and some employees will not partake in all aspects of the supermarket (In a local store every person including managers are expected to work on the shop floor and put out stock etc.)

Advice to Senior Managementhire more staff, get a better uniform and train staff more

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
