    Great Uniform allowance, work life balance and great team, everyone is very supportive and helpful , company is pretty structured.

    Pros

    Aucun, pas de tickets resto, pas de ce, tu dois payer ta tenue de travail avec un pourcentage de75% c'est tout mais cela revient cher. Mutuelle imposée même si tu en as déjà une.

    Cons

    Salaire horrible, ils utilisent les gens comme des kleenex, nous avons été 3 parmis 5 niuveaux à avoir eu notre période d'essai arrêtés. Exigence non justifiée et non uniforme.

    Advice to Management

    Prendre en compte l'experience de l'employé et proposer un salaire correspondant à la hauteur de celle ci. Formation des règles et du code du travail nécessaires pour que les responsables ne se permettent pas de faire de l'abus de pouvoir et n'importe quoi avec les plannings et intitulés de poste de son équipe.

    Pros

    Great Discount and Uniform Allowance
    Thoughtful Training (if not somewhat basic)

    Cons

    Utterly inconsiderate to staff
    Failure to recognise hard work
    Political, dishonest and generally catish

    Advice to Management

    Recognise and reward staff who work well, and they will continue to do so - otherwise efficiency and performance will always drop.
    Give more autonomy to staff, for example: there is no reason to choose staffs uniform for them
    Keep Rat kelvin under control. His behaviour is outrageous and generally creepish

    Cons

    Nothing that you dont experience in any retail job.
