  1. "Enlightening, enjoyable and different every day but, of course, with the odd awkward customer"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Each day is different with customers often coming to you with different problems or questions, giving you a chance to stretch yourself and come up with a solution or explain things to the customer in a way they can understand.

    Cons

    Some of the systems in use at Maplin can cause problems which make your work longer and/or frustrating but this is not a common issue.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the policies and systems in place need updating to better help the efficiency of the store in helping and serving customers as well as allowing staff to get on with their job.


  2. "You learn a lot but you wont get paid too much."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Varied customers with interesting questions. You will learn about pretty much everything from GPS, components, music, car, computers, cables and other stuff. Management varies but usually is pretty laid back. If you do your job you will get promoted.

    Cons

    They pay £6/h and unless you progress to the management level you can't really expect anything better.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the basic salary and cut down on staff turnover
