Featured Review

Current Employee - Company Secretary

I have been working at Marston's full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Friendly staff with positive outlooks. Everyone is happy to 'roll up' their sleeves and work together.

Cons

Making things happen on a restricted budget can be a challenge but it forces me to think differently

Former Employee - Store Manager

I worked at Costa full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great bonuses and 30 days holiday

Cons

No breaks for six hour shifts

Advice to Management

Employees are on their feet all day so I think working six hours straight is too long without a break.
