    I worked at The White Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good staff discount, nice customers, friendly teams

    Cons

    Rude management, low wages, inconsistent rotas- last minute changes and intimidation if you do not comply with last minute changes. Senior management are always looking for someone to blame for something.

    Advice to Management

    Try to care more about your teams -they are people also

    Pros

    Good staff discount and nice colleagues.

    Cons

    Didn't get paid enough for the amount of work and pressure that was placed upon sales staff. Long hours. No paid breaks, no penalty rates on weekends or bank holidays.

    Pros

    Good staff discount, shop floor nice working environment, some staff friendly

    Cons

    Poor management structure in store - top heavy and dictatorial, don't look at staffs previous skills - have their favourites and that's it, expected to be available all the time even when only given minimal hours contract.

    Advice to Management

    Re-structure management/supervisor situ, look at contracts offered and why, proper human resources training for store management
