    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Sunderland, England

    Poor pay, poor advancement. No real benefits other than a small discount on items, but only for your own house, parents house etc is not allowed and have seen people sacked buying a tin of paint for a parent with their discount card.

    Best is the pension contribution, worst is the removal of all bonus potential from most roles

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Doncaster, England

    The pay. I was underpaid, according to documentation available on the company internal website. When queried, I was told this was London Waiting Time. There was no where on the document which suggested this, and there was a salary banding for my role, which I didn't even meet the minimum for, nor did other employees on my team. Two years later, the business agreed we were underpaid, and agreed to bring our salary up to the minimum wage in the banding, but no offer of back pay nor consideration of length of service, which should, in effect, have meant by this time we would be on more money due to annual increases upon review. This in my eyes was immoral and a form of unfair treatment.
