    I have been working at Listers full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people I worked with at the site. Working with some of the biggest automotive brands in the world.

    Cons

    Long hours. Unrewarding. Improved retail labour sales by over 120% on previous year but got no bonus as the targets can be unrealistic and set by bean counters at the top. Internal promotion opportunities not advertised, just filled by the people the regional managers want, ie their friends. Not promoting on merit.

    I have been working at Listers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I cannot explain how professional this company is to work for! I have been working for three weeks before the lock down so I was not eligible for the 80% government scheme. Listed however paid me 80% of there own backs during this time. It has such a nice atmosphere and environment to work in. The support I have received weekly and the communication could not have been better! Thankyou to every single person who has helped along the way!

    Cons

    No cons if your hard working and motivated this is the place for you!

    I wasn’t entitled to furlough because I don’t work enough hours, however Geoff Lister is paying me 80% of my pay out of his own pocket.

    Cons

    I haven’t been working there long enough to say

    I have been working at Listers full-time

    Pros

    I started with the company just before we went into lockdown due to COVID-19 and missed out on the government furlough scheme so wouldn’t receive 80% of my wage. As you can imagine this was a horrible time for myself and family but today I received a call from HR offering me 80% of my basic wage which is out of there own pocket. This is above and beyond and made me feel not just a number, I am very proud to say I work there and can’t wait to carry on with my journey with them!

    Cons

    No complaints felt welcome since day one!

    I have been working at Listers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    During the recent Covid-19 virus, I as a new starter was worried and stressed about my financial situation due to not being eligible to furloughing under the government scheme as being a new starter. However, Mr G.Lister has gone above and beyond for those in my position and he has decided to pay 80% of my wages (the same as the government scheme) out of his own pocket. This means I will not be penalised for changing my career and joining the team. Therefore, receiving the same as my colleagues are eligible for. I can not thank the head office and Mr Lister enough for the help. My mind is finally at ease during these difficult times. I am extremely glad to have took the decision to join such a great company.

    Cons

    N/A - Totally Superb since I have started.
