    I have been working at Elverys full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Staff and other colleagues make the job as good as it is

    Cons

    Salary and hours are the drawback. This can be rectified by reducing the working week by a couple of hours

    Advice to Management

    Implementing pay raises for long term management.

    I worked at Elverys part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Some pros good discount after 6 month probation, @ 25% not too stressful if you only work weekends. Some staff are a bit of crack and area manager colm is nice.

    Cons

    If your not in college and this is your full time job be warned youll have more pressure on you than the manager at times. Have to push sales on people. Stock isn’t the newest or most fashionable. Yes it’s sports wear but they could do with getting newer stuff in, it’s like they’re getting last seasons stuff in other sections of it the shop. The shop I was in, staff and managers got into a click, got very gang up on...

    Advice to Management

    Certain stores need a huge fixing. Management and key holders have a serious attitude problem. Some of them stand around on the computer shopping. Others just chatting and making us on the floor feel like we’re worth nothing.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Elverys part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Staff discount and occasional staff night out.

    Cons

    Where to start.. favoritism, exclusion of staff. Managers and staff bringing personal life’s into work, work relationships causing issues (it’s not a hairdressers!) unrealistic targets, hours are crap, you’re given good hours if your the bosses fav not if you work well, baring in mind not all stores are like this. Don’t expect to have any kind of social life if you work here as they require too much from you.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to take some of the blame. Over payed for what most of them do.
