      Pros

      Pay was reasonable Fellow staff members were kind Staff discount Not much else

      Cons

      At my particular store (Portfield Chichester) the management would switch your shifts a few hours before you were due into work without notifying you. They would do this if the store was busy, so they'd call you and say "You are supposed to be at work" when you weren't. They would adjust your contract without asking you, spend your holiday for you in a way that best fits them without telling you and would often cut your contracted hours because they didn't have enough budget. These issues happened to the majority of staff members at the store, except for management who would stand about and do nothing. Every staff member is treated like a number with little to no respect, you weren't allowed to drink water on the shop floor (which is reasonable) but at the same time they wouldn't allow you to take a minute out of your shift to have a quick drink in the canteen before hopping onto tills. One member of management questioned how often I used hand sanitiser and cleaned my hands at a sink and no COVID training was taught. When I left the store to work elsewhere they claimed I owed them £300 out of my latest pay packet, when questioned upon it, they couldn't give a proper response as to why this money was owed.
