      Cons

      It's definitely a manual labour job be under no illusions .. and be prepared to be confused by the hierarchy changes that happen quite frequently ... And the amount of hierarchy which is just crazy and has been for quite some time now

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They offer lots of learning opportunities, some of which come with pay increases, these opportunities are open to all staff too. They have also created 3 apprenticeships that are also open to all staff. They love to hire within so always opportunity for progression I've been there two years and have had 3 promotions Above minimum wage

      Cons

      Very sales focused so if you don't like aiming for targets maybe not the job for you. its very easy to lose your work life balance with the company as they encourage involvement with all staff with the future development of the company(not necessarily the company's fault) you spend a lot of time with your customers sometimes this can be hard as customers will share personal and sometimes destressing aspects of there life (the company does offer mental health support for staff)
