      Great place to work - team leaders and managers were brilliant

      Pros

      Really great people make quiet evening much more bearable. No division with leadership. Manager was brilliant, flexible/ understanding and ran the store well. Recognised and praised for doing something well. Get to try out all the cameras. No pressure on sales targets - everyone wants the store to do well, nobody gets angry if you have a few bad sales days

      Cons

      Quite a bit of standing around especially on closes. Get the impression other stores are much more target focused. Outdated systems left over from old company need to updated, they break down often and everything gets a bit stressful if its busy when they do. £6.50 isn't great pay when people need to support families - this is more of a general retail issue though.

      Pros

      - Good staff discount on products in store. - Great people to work with.

      Cons

      - Constantly battling with targets. - Lack of stock throughout company. - Rude customers. - Only certain stores can sell high end photographic products. - Often quiet. - You feel very undervalued. - Awful management. - Training is very limited. - Pushed to sell 'JCP' and if you don't it can effect your stats.

      Great Staff, Terrible management

      Pros

      Some great people work there

      Cons

      Terrible management both at store and national level. Minimum wage despite the fact all employees are expected to learn about every camera that is sold.
