    I have been working at E-Cigarette Direct full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From day one I have felt welcomed with open arms, and I can honestly say it is the best company I have ever worked for. It values it's employees and the work you do for them, they are very easy going and definitely support your needs.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons with the company, I am more than with all the work they do to make me and others feel at home.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, just keep up the hard work! You're all lovely.

    I have been working at E-Cigarette Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible and supportive Management and HR.
    One of the best basic wages on the high street.
    Very friendly staff, with various origin stories and a depth of compassion and empathy for everyone.
    Good working hours.
    The company tries it's best to keep to core values even with a forever changing Industry.
    It is a sales environment but honesty and customer care is at the top of the daily expectations.
    You can and will make a positive difference to someone's life be it health or financially, i know i have on more occasions than i could count.

    Cons

    Due to the structure of some of the stores promotion isn't really a possibility
    (But is possible if you are willing to travel)
    Can be working on your own from time to time ( that's either a positive or a negative)
    Bonus system sometimes feels unsustainable or unfair sometimes, But hey if you put the effort in you can get a bonus!!!

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice really it is a growing business and need's to evolve. Just keep in mind staff Moral overall.

    Pros

    An amazing atmosphere, you will be hard pressed to find a job filled with so many people that remember that at core we are only human.
    As long as we work as a team and do our best in a competent manner everything is really good, if you make a mistake and contact the team regarding the area you made a mistake in, it's all good because they will help you all the way to the end. A++ to the job.

    Cons

    "You must enter at least 5 words for Cons." Glassdoor is asking me to write cons when there are none.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, never seen a brighter group of people in my 20 years of working life in different area's of trade than you lot.

    I have been working at E-Cigarette Direct full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Salary, Training with people you work with, great staff and given key holder responsibility.
    Easy to contact Area Managers and Cluster Managers and good overall communication within the company.
    Family based company so Boxing day as a given day off which is rare in retail and very much appreciated.

    Cons

    Working weekends.. however usually every other sunday off which does not happen in retail.
    Can be expected to work in a different store at a moments notice. This however is only really a Con for people who don't like a bit of a challenge from time to time.

    I have been working at E-Cigarette Direct full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I find working for E-cigarette direct a fantastic place to work. Managers and work colleagues work as one, working together and very supportive. The salary is amazing for retail @ £9.66 PH. We are all classed as Sales Managers due to being Key holders and being fully responsible for the running of the store. I also get to work in other stores which is great to have the change and flexibility. The company is a family run unit and very respectful of their employees. There are many perks working for this company and the opportunities to earn bonuses on store performance, which is fantastic to get a bonus for just doing your job. E-Cigarette Direct is probably the best company I've ever had the pleasure to worked for.

    Cons

    You are expected to work weekends, but it is retail after all. If you do want time off on the weekend the managers are very flexible to allow for this, as long as there is cover.

    I worked at E-Cigarette Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had the pleasure of working for e-cigarette direct for 4 months whereby I learned valuable skills. I found the company to be very supportive with very good values. I got to work in many of their stores and made good friendships with many. The hourly wage is very good, with good working practices. Additionally all staff get 50% discount on all products.

    Cons

    Cant think of any apart from you are expected to work weekends, however it is retail which is expected. (Not really a con but more of a pro, the company and the team are very supportive if you need the occasional day off over the weekend to party, as long as there is someone to cover you)

    I worked at E-Cigarette Direct part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A company where your ideas are welcomed. I had the opportunity to grow within the organisation and felt valued. The organisation is growing, vibrant and energetic, and while the environment is busy, I never felt like I was "just a number". A genuine "no blame" culture where mistakes are really treated like learning experiences. The management are not "walk overs", by any stretch of the imagination.....but...if you want to work hard, have fun, and be part of an amazing team - then THIS is where you should be working.

    Cons

    Honestly - I find it difficult to think of anything to say here.

    Advice to Management

    If it ain't broke - don't fix it. More of the same!!
