    I worked at Betfred full-time

    Pros

    Meeting new people, making friends with staff who have integrity...

    Cons

    Bullying company in every sense of the work, treat staff like something they stepped on off the floor. If your face fits or it benefits management to have brown nose staff, they will use these staff to further their bonus at the expense of nicer staff..... If you don't meet shop targets, you're degraded to every other shop in the area.. You're basically told to bully people onto machines, coax them into parting with money you know they can't spare, making you feel absolutely disgusted at their nastiness and heartless money grabbing ethics.... Overall they are vindictive , ruthless, unethical, and power hungry, bullying tyrants, with no respect for their customers or staff....

    I worked at Betfred

    Pros

    Friendly way to meet new people, and enjoy the banter with the public.

    Cons

    No or little career progression. Company continuosly increasing opening hours regardless of staff commitments, no subsidised taxi's for staff during 2011's massive snow period even though many struggled to come and go. You must follow orders and not ask questions, all things given from head office and not obeyed are class as refusal of management descisions, so your voice nor oppinion mean nothing to them.
