    I have been working at Specsavers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The staff. There was a feeling of cameraderie amongst the staff . A friendly helpful team, and plenty of job satisfaction from the customers side of things. Reasonable training given, straightforward systems to learn taught effectively.

    Cons

    Miserable pay packet. All the praise for good work you get is great and everything but when you continually struggle just to simply make ends meet, it becomes a bit of a joke. Particularly when you see the sole store director coming to work in his latest porsche.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nobody can knock anyone for making a success of his or her own business, and justifiably so can you drive around in your expensive car. But when your fuel costs for that beast are more than the salary you pay your employees then you can't wonder why they lose heart in the job and leave.
