    I worked at heatons full-time

    Pros

    Had a great team to work with in store i was in.
    Sunday rate pay and sales incentives is a nice bonus to work for.

    Cons

    Company makes things alot more awkward then it needs to be.
    Not respected when members from Head office come into store. Looked down on and makes staff feel uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Its not all managements fault

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

    Pros

    Good products, nice customers and ok colleagues. I like the way it has a mixture of departments. Sports Direct will take over no doubt.

    Cons

    Terrible management, awfully slow paced work and terrible store in Northside SC.
    I never worked in such an outdated store, terrible management and ultimately lazy staff....
    I'd be happy to hand my notice in... just not ready as per my financial reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your staff, understand the store and your merchandising. Management need to be trained up properly instead of moving store to store.
    Actually get proper staff who understand retail and who actually care when you have a store manager who doesn't give a toss.... sad times for heatons. It used to have great name

    Pros

    You can buy some items with discount. No pressure at work.

    Cons

    I dont think the company values the employees, they keep hiring new part-time staff all the time instead to give more hours for those who wants to work more.

    I worked at heatons part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues were quite nice.

    Cons

    Management were quite difficult to deal with. I was let go after just under 3 months of employment and went into work one morning to be told that day was to be my last. They're not obligated to give notice but I thought it was very rude and inconsiderate. They should have given even a couple of days notice.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to employees.
