Featured Review

Supervisor

I worked at Holland & Barrett Retail for less than a year

Pros

-Fantastic store team, had a great relationship with my manager. -Pay is decent, even without benefits. -Good commission and bonuses. -Training is comprehensive.

Cons

-Area and regional management is pitiful and completely unsupportive, even accusatory. -Pay is affected by customer satisfaction surveys. It's unfair the means of putting food on the table is in the... hands of the general public who often are unaware of this fact. -CEO is completely self absorbed -Communication between stores, head office and technical support is rubbish
