I have been working at Mothercare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Cute clothes at cheap prices, especially useful if you have children in the family or yourself.

Cons

Horribly managed. The managers are not trained in anything other than financial management and hardly anything about staff retention.

The called the Supervisor training 'self-directed' which means there is none! (Compared to other companies say M&S or BHS)

Not prepared to invest in staff.
Managers I noticed didn't smile at staff, were not polite to staff, didn't see staff as an assest or trust them to do their jobs.

The staff weren't referred to by their names, by as 'him' or 'her' in front of the said member of staff! :(
I had to leave as I didn't feel I would want to treat any body like that.

Advice to Management

Invest in your staff. Train Managers to motivate and listen to staff!!
