    I worked at Iceland Foods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff to work with in a fast pace environment. Minimum wage was good and at age 16, I was paid adult wage.

    Cons

    Zero hour contract can be sometimes difficult not knowing the specific times of working. Christmas time is always very busy but keeps you on your feet.

    Advice to Management

    They were keen and enthusiast to make a difference in the work place. Changing times on working without much notice may not be ideal.

    Pros

    Friendly customers, good products and some good promotions

    Always short staffed due to budget the store was given for wages

    Hire a better manager that knows how to talk to their staff and that listens to their staff. Hire someone who is a people's person as the current manager is not
