Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Start there and move on quickly. You'll learn all you need to know there in less than 3 months. If you're smart you'll start buying or selling similar goods on ebay using the experience from there of the product movers

Cons

Old school Management protecting themselves.

Advice to Management

There should be a management clearout soon in the bad economic climate. Politics and power is enjoyed by the middle management. I'd expect some closures in the coming recession as conformity is modus operandi. Adaptability is not there right now. Lose the excess. Trim the fat

    I worked at Maplin Electronics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lovely team to work with, we had a good laugh but still got the workload done.

    Cons

    As the only under 18 on £4 an hour, the over eighteens could have pulled their weight more.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the cringy training videos.
