    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at McColl's full-time

    Pros

    Get left alone most of the time

    Cons

    Company think they are good in the retail market however they lacked any commercial sense and people management skills, most of the time you were expected to work long hours with no extra benefit to yourself

    Only good thing is it is local so I do not require transportation fees.

    Cons

    long hours, unpredictable shifts.... constantly changed and forever doing 2 to 3 times more hours than contracted (good if that's your sort of thing but I took a part time job as I'm a full time student and devote more of my time to that) hopeless management and poor pay.
