    I worked at Currys PC World part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good holiday pay
    Other same-level colleagues are usually very friendly

    Cons

    Employees are treated terribly, with no consideration for problems outside of work.
    Managers are more than willing to tell 'white lies' to customers to ensure a sale.
    Poor customer relations, some higher-level colleagues have terrible customer service skills and no empathy for customers who have had a hard time dealing with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Realistic and attainable targets would be better. Pressure on colleagues does the company no favours - colleagues are more likely to perform better if they were not being threatened with their job every other week.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Currys PC World part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly and sociable
    Flexible hours
    Management not too strict on certain issues

    Cons

    Unorganised rotas
    Unattainably high targets with little/no reward for achieving or beating them but strong downfalls to falling short
    Poor management in place
    Society of punishment rather than reward
    Low pay, compulsory training to increase pay is extremely hard to book onto

    Advice to Management

    Stop punishing instead of rewarding staff. Positive rewards do better than negative punishments.
