Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at WHSmith full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It's now out of business. It's been gone for for years so 2015 does not apply.

Cons

It's out of business. Now overseas as far as I know.

Former Employee - Industrial Placement Student

Pros

Great shift patterns and people

Cons

Wage isn't the best but it's not a terribly demanding job
