Pros

Incentives were ok, colleagues were lovely

Cons

Minimum wage. I started in February, excited to embark on a new career. They sent me to do a 3 week training course (with travel, accommodation and expenses all covered by the company), which I was very excited to get stuck into as I have been interested in working in the travel industry for years. With the coronavirus pandemic, everyone knew the company would have to make cuts, and so they did, starting with voluntarily reducing hours temporarily. They decided to cut everyone’s hours down by reducing store opening times because of the impact the coronavirus has had on sales (understandable). On Monday we got asked to join a conference call, in which we were informed that as of Tuesday we would be on zero hours (not even given any notice) and review to possible redundancy. This is to protect their more experienced staff. I don’t feel that this company is like a family as they claim, I understand the financial situation but this is heartbreaking.

Advice to Management

Look after your new staff and don’t expect them to wait around on zero pay until you want them again.
