    I worked at Day Lewis part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Sometimes get a box of chocolate or free ice cream. The annual conference is a good event to go to

    Cons

    Badly managed company, seems like the problems you face in their pharmacies are not listened to and you are not given any help, customers get angry with the service then take it out on the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to suggestions from the branches and help when they need it or you will lose more and more staff

      I worked at Day Lewis full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      A really generous, family oriented company to work for. Everyone is valued and isn’t just a ‘number’ which is hard to find these days. Nice Christmas bonus’. Annual Day Lewis confrence in London. Career pathway progression. Good management who listen. Monday to Friday work pattern. Weekends off.

      Cons

      Some branches have very nasty staff with poor attitudes who are very cliquey.

      Advice to Management

      Discipline for unprofessional staff who are not only rude in general but to customers! These people also tend to float around the dispensary gossiping unethically for all to hear. Not what potentially unwell patients collecting medication what to hear.

      I have been working at Day Lewis full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      - SOME kind members off staff in certain branches - Potential for Xmas bonus

      Cons

      - Pay as little as they can - A lot of work/ stress for little money - No pay rises - No progression - Very poor management - Horrendous communication - Lies

      Advice to Management

      Need a lot more training. Need to work on communication with other staff members. Don't make promises you cant keep (e.g. promising pay rises then never giving them).
