    Pros

    Good atmosphere, lovely people. Excellent staff discount available immediately. Flexible hours. Good work structure in the Foods department.

    Extensive training. Organisational structure is far too big, no need for so many different managers or section co-ordinators.

    Advice to Management

    Consult each other when making decisions. Make a decision and stick to it.
