    I have been working at Heron Foods full-time

    Pros

    With the right Store Manager & Area Manager it can really pay off when you work hard & show willing. Very easy to get up the ladder with effort & determination. You need a keen eye for standards and availability to do well

    Cons

    Contracted hours are low compared to other retailers often 8-12hrs for a Sales Assistant

    Advice to Management

    Look at the contracted hours & increase these maybe to 18 or 15hrs for a Sales Assistant
