    I worked at Superdrug full-time

    Pros

    Seeing familiar faces of customers who regularly come in. Some members of staff are really nice to work with there

    Cons

    BULLY tactics from all angles. No support whatsoever. Absolutely no thank you for hard work, the praise seems to go to the ones who are work shy but can talk the talk when challenged. Unfair expectations. Managers have an AWFUL and unfair attitude towards their staff, beyond unprofessional. Going home in tears , VERY degrading and uncomfortable place to work. Made to feel at fault for everything that goes wrong.
