Good work place, great people.

Part Time Sales Advisor (Former Employee) Stevenage, England (UK)

ProsOffers + employee discount
Staff incentive schemes
The people! Some very kind people to work with, always doing their best to help out and make sure everything goes smoothly.
A very open environment with things like Maplin Matters (weekly newsletter to update staff on the workings of the company) and staff meetings.

ConsMaplin is quite an expensive place for some things (in particular, computer parts and any kind of flash storage). Trying to get sales on these things whilst having to fight back the urge to say that they could get the same thing for half the price online can be very difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, but try to be a bit more competitive on some things. Trying to justify clearly outrageous prices to customers is not a nice thing to have to do.

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