    I worked at Maplin Electronics part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people; people you work with are always incredible, very knowledgeable. I have learnt a lot working at Maplin

    Cons

    Starting off with the minimum wage salaries and working times that change weekly, leading on to shifts changing without warning. You end up doing the job of 12 people, cleaning, serving customers, stock control, delivery, goods out, returns, customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I would build the training program at maplin, the sales advisors have a tough job learning about products at stores with 3 management there is normally a 4th keyholder, that key holder is paid same wage to do 2x as much with loads more responsibility, train them up to a top level and then give them a raise and the title of "technical advisor"
