    I have been working at O2 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people and dealing with different situations everyday.

    Cons

    Long hours in certain stores but overall enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses are calculated in an odd way. I want to know what I can earn not memorize a million percentages of this and that and the other that I COULD be earning.

    "Stressful but rewarding, they suck you into the brand. Usual retail negatives but generally decent towards employees."

    I worked at O2 full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Re: retail store- Interesting job, lots of new tech to play with. Always changing. Achievable bonus. If you're smart there's extra money to be made in vouchers & quality performance incentives. Stable job (many staff with over 10 years service). Progression opportunities exist. Flexible benefits. Full sick pay. Staff discount.

    Cons

    Stressful. You'll deal with a lot of issues and complaints. Some people are very emotionally attached to their phones and when there's a problem they can on occasion behave quite inappropriately. There are quite a few different sales targets, requirements and measures to juggle which can seem daunting but with practice it'll get easier. Can be very busy job, some locations quieter than others. Work most weekends/bank holidays. No holidays allowed in December. There is a constant pressure to sell. Training & accreditation platforms exist but they're more box ticking than useful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it simple, you have a tendency to overcomplicate things. This goes all the way up the ladder. How many plates can you spin before you drop one? Can you see how this is making you less productive?
