    Management incompetence, egos are more important than customers, your view is asked but quickly ignored, removed from decision making if you are not management

    Pros

    The pay is excellent for a supermarket, Union is great, great benefits the list can go on.

    Cons

    The company is great to work for but when you want to transfer do not go to a express store from a superstore! They treat you like a piece of dirt! I regretted every minute of it.

    Advice to Management

    In express store the management can be power mad and say if you have children your work comes first not your children! I left on my on accord because my daughter was in hospital and the manager wouldn't give me time off!

    Pros

    They pay well compared to others in the sector, development opportunities from entry level up until line management level,

    Cons

    Working hours are terrible and little consideration for staff or families, the senior management think they know it all but results suggest otherwise

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, and value them more than you do

    Pros

    Good salary and close to home. The few people who I spoke to were very nice.

    Cons

    I had barely started before I was left on my own to run the bakery, too much work for just one person. In the 2 months I worked there I only saw/spoke to management once even though I'd asked for help with the bakery.

  6. Good place for a student
