What is overtime like at British Heart Foundation?

Pros

- Great pay for relatively easy work (they pay £8.30 hour as a sales assistant regardless of your age) - You can opt into doing additional training and learning and you can shadow anyone in the company to learn about their job - The job can be quite fun and varied. There’s always something different every day to do. But it can also be very repetitive and boring - There is quite a good benefits package you get a health/dental plan, 25% discount, A good amount of holidays allowance and plenty of overtime offered

Cons

- The job can be stressful due to the amount of stock that you can get. There is always a very high workload. There are not enough members of staff hired in the shops. It’s usually just a team of a couple of people and volunteers are heavily relied upon - Working conditions are rather dangerous and unsafe to be around - There is an atmosphere of bullying from the management team

How are flexible working hours at British Heart Foundation?

Pros

Big open plan office with plenty of light, it's own balcony and onsite canteen. The people are friendly and there are lots of benefits, holiday and flexible working hours.

Cons

There are no opportunities to develop or progress. It's difficult to change things and suggest ideas, everyone is quite stuck in their ways. Management have no idea what anyone does and allow people to be lapse. If you don't want to work then can easily get away with doing nothing.

Advice to Management

Have more idea what people do within the team and listen to suggestions.
