What are working conditions like at Matalan Retail?

Pros

- People, people, people. The people at Matalan are fantastic, friendly, intelligent and creative. I adore my colleagues. - Culture: there is a strong family culture that is more than just a word in the values. Everyone is helpful regardless of “title”. I’ve not experienced a place like this before. People hold the door open, they smile at each other and it’s not uncommon to hear laughter. I’ve made some great friends here. - Environment: it may depend on your manager and head of department, but in my team we’re given the trust and freedom to do what we need to do. - Support: you are given strong support by senior management. The management style feels very flat for such a big brand. - Learning & development: there is solid culture of personal development and our L&D team provide some brilliant classes. - Office: we have a brand new and super clean office that’s full of natural light. It really represents how proud we all are of our Matalan home. - Job: it will depend on your job, but I absolutely love my job at Matalan.

Cons

- In all honesty, I do not have anything negative to say.

Advice to Management

- We have an inspiring strategy and I feel confident in our management.
