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

Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I worked at Poundland

Pros

Lean and agile work environment, few to none unnecessary meetings, no pointless report writing, capable coworkers and superiors, reasonably quick and timely decision making, pleasant cordial... colleagues and good work atmosphere.

Cons

pay was probably lower then industry average, turnover was higher then ideal, more time spent on recruiting and training then it should have been.

Advice to Management

improve pay and advancement opportunities
