Does JD Sports Fashion have a pension plan?

Pros

the only good thing about working for JD is the staff (NOT management)

Cons

The pay is awful. The management expect you to run around like a headless chicken while they sit in the office all day. The area manager and store managers had favourites and people that they liked less... and it showed! They have no respect for their staff. Dont get paid for lunches. No proper training. One of the new staff members had to run the whole foot wear section as someone else didnt come in on his FIRST DAY. No pension scheme. Bad pay. Always pay incorrectly then it would take weeks to get through to the payroll department.

Advice to Management

Understand that you have to earn the respect of your staff. And doing things like not greeting them or smiling at them and then expecting them to do their best work is stupid. Also the area managers do not even make eye contact with the sales assistants let alone greet them or ever introduce themselves. Saad and Ian.

No pension scheme.
