    I worked at Garden & Leisure (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice working environment with regular contacted hours, friendly staff to work with, opportunities to work in different departments within the store. Sadly this has now all gone due to wyevale take over and destroying everything that was once decent about the stores.
    I worked on the shop floor and progressed to head office. Although they didn't always get everything right, there was always an underlying passion in what was being done.
    Part of my work involved doing the Christmas displays which were stunning. Sadly due no wyevale these are no more.
    There wasn't ever any pressure on staf to sell, sell, sell, Intead they focused on providing decent customer service.

    Cons

    Working on tills was extremely repetitive with no chance to learn about the stock you were selling, munch better to rotate people. Pay was only slightly above minimum wage. Being called to restaurant to clear dirty plates when it was busy!

    Advice to Management

    Due to hateful Wyevale taking over there is no longer a Garden & leisure management left. Another thing 'Vile-vale' has destroyed!
