"Good company"Feb 21, 2016

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Matalan Retail part-time

Pros

Really good company to work for, managers are friendly and the job is varied. Lots of chance for promotion and the work is extremely interesting. I would recommend matalan.

Cons

Sometimes the work was a little repetitive and customers could be quite difficult. the main issue is the milton keynes store is unbelievably hot because the air conditioning is broken!

Advice to Management

Fix the air conditioning in the milton keynes store, especially in the stock room. also rotate GSA around fitting room duty and make sure people are not left on fitting rooms too long.
