    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The team at Bishop Auckland is very supportive, great atmosphere, very supportive management. I volunteer part time at Covid vaccination centres and the manager has been exceptional in making sure I can meet this commitment without detracting from my input to the store and without impacting on my colleagues. I am approaching 70, have had a long career as a manager, so I have no axe to grind and can be completely honest in my assessment. Very pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    The IT systems are antiquated but I understand this is being rectified. A member of the management team has posted a taster of what is to come, good management skills.
