    I have been working at Gi Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    it was a okay place to work for part time constant work and OK salary, they got me into the boots warehouse during covid after I lost my job

    Cons

    performance based to a fault, you have to hit 85% performance weekly which doesn't sound bad on paper but in practice you have a lot working against you. the supervisors and helpers are rude and they have a extreme double standard when it comes to their friends. very low chance of progressing there by the looks of things
