    Pros

    Great chance to prove yourself and progress
    Good team culture, lots of fun at work activities
    Pay and benefits are brilliant
    Work life balance is good - you are not expected to do overtime, if you do you accrue it to take back.

    Cons

    A lot of set processes and procedures from head office, it can be quite rigid

    Pros

    +Decent pay for a retail position.
    +4-6 weeks of annual paid holiday.
    +Sick pay scheme (around 10-12 days).

    Cons

    -50+ hour working week for management roles.
    -Unpaid breaks.
    -Terrible work/life balance. One day you might be working in the morning and the next closing the store until just before midnight.
    -Your experience will vary A LOT depending on which store you reside in. Store managers can make your life hell.
    -A lot of behind the scenes corner cutting and favoritism by the store management.

    Nothing that would be realistically put into practice.
