    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Homebase Limited part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    20% discount Good management Environment was nice place to work but the people could get away with most things as cctv and other things are not always in operation

    Cons

    Bad head office as they never answer phones or give the correct information to both customers and colleagues. Lack funding so never have enough money to employ Rarely have all items in stock

    Advice to Management

    Give your stores enough money to have a decent staff count.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Newark on Trent, England

    I worked at Homebase Limited part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    More diverse and less tedious than supermarket cashiering, most of staff were helpful, often a relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Little in terms of support and training. Occasionally thrust into jobs with little training and little help offered by senior management. Stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    A more thorough initial induction and support system would go a long way. Staff morale always seemed quite low.
