      Pros

      The Atmosphere in work is fantastic and I count the other employees as my second family, there is also great communication between the senior management and the stores. We receive a 10% discount in both B&M and Heron Foods that can be used nation wide. I started within the company 6 years ago starting at a customer service assistant level and thought internal courses that the company offers I raised my position to the level of floor manager.

      Cons

      Like many other companies in the Industry the basic pay falls inline with national minimum wage but with progression come a higher salary.
