    I have been working at Holland & Barrett Retail full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company has a great heart, lots of energy, strong values and great people.
    Love the facilities in the office, including a great gym (which is well used).
    Sure we have some issues (doesn't everywhere?), but there is a genuine drive to work to fix them.

    Cons

    It's tough in retail, and everyone is working very hard to keep the company successful. None more so than our amazing store managers and colleagues.
    The company needs to get better at recognising and appreciating how hard everyone is working.

    Advice to Management

    Getting things right in stores, online, and for our customers is the only thing that really counts. We need happy and focussed people to make that happen. Managers need to focus on helping every person in the company to work together (and talk to / listen to each other) to achieve that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Bedford, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Lots of standard questions asking for examples of times you’ve experienced things and times you’ve done things, really wanted to know about my interest in health and wellness. Then went onto shop floor and asked me to tell her things I’d improve and a role play of serving a customer
