Featured Review

Current Contractor - Book Seller

I have been working at Foyles for less than a year

Pros

The friendliest team with an amazing work atmosphere, always busy and love interacting with the customers recommending books

Cons

The books are heavy and sometimes you get a bit lost for time lugging books around for an hour and it can take its toll and really hurt afterwards Also it's a small team which is great but sadly... that means little career progression and also not taking many people on longer than temporary contracts

Advice to Management

Keep being open and tolerant and trusting of your staff that they can do their job. So far I've had an excellent experience here and think more managers across the country could learn from Foyles... approach

Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at Dixons Carphone full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good environment to work with and good people around

Cons

No Benefits in place which is a downer
