Pros

William hill is an ok company to work for, but its not the best.
its a good laugh at times and if you get on with the people you are working with should find it fun. there are no set shifts so this can either be a go or a bad thing.
 its good if you need this weekend or that day off but the working hours arnt too great.

Cons

most managers dont work nights so you will find yourself doing alot of late shifts.
ok as a part time job or a full time job for a while but not forever.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

the staff could be treated better. we are the ones in the most difficult position working crazy shifts. some praise once in a while wouldnt go a miss.

    Pros

    It has a good training programme. Late starts if you are a cashier. Normally 1pm-1:30pm.
    Some of the staff are fantastic-they would do anything for you.

    Cons

    Rubbish pay. High level managent too wishy washy and let lower level staff get away with murder. The staff that do work their backsides off get no thanks or recognition from anyone. Lots of people let the side down.
    New pay structures are coming into effect in January and even the high level shops are going to be taking a 3k pay drop. What person can afford to do that??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a back bone and learn how to manage lower level staff efficently.

    I have been working at William Hill part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent job if you've got no qualifications, no real career aspirations, a student and a decent shop team.
    Pay isn't the worst considering you don't do much in some shops and compared to the other general clothing shop retail jobs this is great.
    If it's quiet and your team are understanding you can get your training done efficiently and other external things done (studies).
    FLEXIBILITY - part-timers pick low hours come in and do overtime when you want contracts are 2/3 days across ANY of the 7.
    Decent retail career progression.
    Training which they will go on about is the best in the industry, it's true though, after they've finished with betting will become easy to understand.
    If you pass your training which is highly likely you'll be regarded as a 2.5/duty manager (supervisor) in other retail shops, and the idea is to go onto deputy manager shortly afterwards if you want to.
    Good work if noticed can be recognised.
    Do have Tvs to watch sport in shop, a bonus when it's quiet and no customers are in.
    Some great customers.
    Discounted travel for those working 5 days.
    Employee benefits.

    Cons

    Inconsistent shop team due to high staff turnover.
    Staff never feel valued and attempt to brush off their views on you.
    Due to a lack of available staff often inadequate and unprofessional team members are promoted into managerial roles BIG MISTAKE!
    Regularly managers are working alone for long hours.
    Staffing is altered by external staffing shops disrupting the shop team who have agreements in place between them.
    Cashiers tend to have lunch time starts (could be a pro for some) and almost always finish at closing time.
    No discounted travel for those on a 30 hour or below contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop staffing shops from attempting to control individual shop teams shifts.
    If you allowed for earlier starts I'm sure you'd get more cashiers available for longer.
    District Operations Managers should be more approachable.
    Be a bit more flexible with contracts as some are made restricted as some staff prefer long full days rather than several short days or vice verser to make up their hours.
    Recognise good work more frequently staff will maintain good efforts and encourage others.
