    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The work is solid and as long as you don't make a gross obvious mistake you will always have that job. Discount is ok. It's fairly easy to get promoted to the Team Leader position. They are excellent towards students and I've never had a problem getting emergency time off or had any issues or complaints with my holidays. Store managers treat you as humans. Solid development system. Training readily available if you want it. Job responsibilities clearly laid out.

    Cons

    Work weekends and holidays for no premium. Pay is very low, even with London Weighting. Customers will abuse you for their own amusement/stress relief. Bonus is slim. Labour budgets too tight (in Convenience) leading to massive stress and failure to hit other targets. Store CCTV and security procedures focus on staff being criminals, rather than on actual criminals. There is serious risk of assault on weekends, especially in Convenience. Physical toll on your body. Quality of working environment depends on the specific store you are in, some of the Convenience stores are catastrophically bad.

    Advice to Management

    Increase labour budgets in Convenience stores. Start treating each Convenience store as it's own local entity with it's own sales direction and daily routine, rather than standardising ranges and policies across a whole diverse area.
