    I have been working at Three full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, bit wellness push from head office. Pretty well paid.

    Cons

    The wellness can sometimes be all talk and no action when it comes to retail stores. A lot is expected and not said. Pay grades are kept secret with internal promotions not getting very good salary increases so outsiders do well.

    Advice to Management

    Get better pay scales that are open and honest. There is nothing more demotivating than doing a job better than others but earning significantly less.

    I have been working at Three part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have a lot of incentives once every month to help make extra money on top of the basic pay. They treat staff well, have a healthy snack box, choclates for the store. If you work well and hard they have good career progression.

    Cons

    Sometimes management can treat you unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff well and if they could have an anonymous rating done by staff saying how good the management is. If its bad than action should be taken as the whole point of management is manage the store.

    Pros

    Great staff benefits, family&friends discount, healthcare.

    Cons

    Constantly being pushed to sell more and more, at work you play mind games with customers, by offering extra products... Three need to introduce Technical Support advisor in store,as staff is stuck with those quieries and is missing out sales! Systems needs massive override old and slow...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with respect, dont look at us like we are only numbers and your bonuses!
