Pros

Training and development is second to none with a huge emphasis on training and giving individuals exposure to real responsibility and different parts of the business. The management throughout the business is very profesional and have a real willingness to see people progress.

Cons

The very large organisational and managent hierachy makes decision making and change difficult, with too many management levels involved. This makes the company inflexible and slow compared to more commercially orientated organisations to adapt and develop initiatives.

Advice to Management

Look to give local managers more discretion in making business changes/decisions and not to be so incumbunt upon HQ directives and policies.

    Pros

    The salary when compared to any retail outlet is fantastic you dont do as much work and if your a people person the day will fly by with all the customer you'll encounter.

    Cons

    With more and more stations opening longer hours some even being open 24 hours you are required to work what is called unsocialable hours this can be ideal for some just not if you have numerous out of work commitments.

    Advice to Management

    Make certain job roles more specific instead of trying to spread and cover them all under one job title this leads to uncertainty and confusion for all staff involved instead of giving them a clear direction to focus and provide what is needed of them.

    Advice to Management

    As far as safety is concerned stop trying to penny pinch, if it aint broke leave it alone? Stop tinkering with safety when it already runs like a well oiled machine. Change for changes sake never was a good idea.
