    I have been working at Iceland Foods part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay and generally nice environment to work

    Cons

    can be hard to progress as some duty managers and supervisors have been in the same position in the same store for 20+ years etc so no need for new ones

    Advice to Management

    rotate weekends and later shifts for duty managers so one member is not doing them all

    I have been working at Iceland Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and great restaurant

    Cons

    No option for flexibility to allow for real work/life balance. Cannot start early or later and no working from home.

    Advice to Management

    Chances are if your employee is happy then it can only benefit your business, and if offering flexible working is one of the ways to achieve it, then surely it’s a no-brainer?
