BHF store managers appear to lack management experience and understanding of working with disabled staff

Sales (Former Employee)
Aberdeen, Scotland

I worked at British Heart Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMost people are caring, willing to work hard and cope with people with disabilities with respect

ConsExperience has shown that some stores have a high turnover of managers many of whom stay for less than a few months. Managers are supported by Head Office HR in treating disabled people in ways that clearly skirt the law.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou get more out of staff if you treat them with respect and reward them for their work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ConsIt can get a bit cramped so may be hard to move about at times but they try not to let that happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay motivated!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
