    I worked at Three part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has many benefits - pension scheme, twice a year employee discount in many aspects (phones, holidays, childcare, dental care, etc). Human resources department is lovely as well. If you're a part timer and you do overtime, you can either choose to get paid or get time back - just need to negotiate with manager. Company also offers 28 days paid leave + 4 weeks compassionate + 8 weeks sick leave (4 weeks in 1st year of employment, 8 weeks in 2nd year and on)

    Cons

    Can get pretty stressful with customers, especially if your manager is the devil and causes you unnecessary stress in addition to the one customers have already created. Some managers have unreasonable expectations.

    Company only closed 3 days a year - Christmas, New Years, and Easter Days. Working hours in bigger stores sucks around the holidays (Nov-Dec).

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grantham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Three (Grantham, England) in November 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process required you to relay previous skills, identify sales skills and the ability to record these sales. Any figures were handy, you have to show energy and passion. This is key to ensure you are able to create a great working environment.
