    I have been working at Matalan Retail full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They invest in your development. There is a great L&D team who are always looking for new and exciting ways to develop your skills. Including wellbeing classes. All levels of workers are friendly, approachable and work as one team. You are encouraged to try new things and develop your skills but getting involved, doing new projects. Fast paced and forever changing means there is a lot of great analysis involved which makes the job fun. It’s never boring. Just invested in new systems which makes analysis and data easier to use.

    Cons

    Honestly can’t really think of any.

    Pros

    Some great colleagues who helped you through the daily disrespect and company lack of care.

    Cons

    Poor senior team direction that expected those at the coal face to put it right. No consideration for the individuals or their families. Higher paid colleagues forced out to be replaced by cheaper staff. It’s their way of protecting profit. Hope they sleep well at night 😢.
