    Pros

    Since working within ECP I have had the opporunity to wear many different hats, each one taking me outside of my comfort zone and each time I surprise myself at the level of personal development I have achieved. With support from Senior Management, Directors and the camaraderie of working with professional colleagues; ECP is absolutley an organisation to invest your career in. Working at ECP is not an easy place to be, you have to be focused, dilligent and hard working; if this is in your DNA then you will excell here. I have seen many internal promotions during my time with the business, hard work is always rewarded.

    Cons

    This is a driven and sales focused organisation; if you dont like fast paced I wouldnt recommend you join.

    Pros

    Lots of oppurtunities to progress.
    Good pay for Management.

    Cons

    You never have the tools you need to do your job. HR don t do a good job, they always mess up with your money. Overtime is never paid on time. They don't value their people. Massive staff turnover. Training is very poor for colleagues, getting better for management.

    Pros

    A driven and focussed company to work for, having worked in a few branches now in sales and operations roles I have progressed my career within ECP thanks to the great people and determination of the management teams. Sukhpal is a real inspiration and has a legacy of strong directors and managers who push the business forward. If you want the ability to progress your career, stand out of the crowd and be recognised for your hard work then Euro's is the place for you!

    Cons

    Unapologetically fast paced, if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognising the rising stars

Euros have helped put my career on the right path to get me where i am today and they have put me on course free of charge some companies make you stay there for so long or take it out of your wages i have a forklift license and i am first aid trained. when i had personal problems euros stood by me and helped me in every way they could.

    Cons

    To be honest i struggle with this as i love my job and don't really have a bad word to say has euros have been good to me

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Easy job, part time for 5 hours a week. If you're studying a great option to get money in.

    Even though my manager said he would pay me for overtime, I never actually got the pay.
