    Pros

    Good enviroment , teamwork and management . Regular customers always nice and friendly

    Cons

    Every day is pretty much the same , so you could find it boring after a while . It's really hard to get the +50 pence bonus so the salary will be very low.

    My experience

    Pros

    I met some lovely people working there, food is good (although they monitor how much you eat and drink..)

    Cons

    I felt that the company was very male dominated and the wages were pathetic (I started at 6.30 p/h). They also take away the bonus from all staff if one staff messes up the 'mystery shopper'... So not recommended.

    Flexible work schedule, remote work options

    Cheap company with no ethics

    Pros

    You can pick your own title and manipulate your way into favor quickly, if you're willing to break a few commandments. Tell the boss she's wonderful - or better yet emulate her in some way (i.e. break more commandments) - and you'll rise to the top quickly.

    Cons

    If someone's better at sucking up than you are, you're hosed. The company employs a studs-and-duds approach to hiring. There are a few people paid well, and a bunch that are just lucky to have jobs for one reason or another. Those that are paid well are expected to carry those who aren't. No paid training, weird restrictions and expectations regarding per diem and "saving the company money". We were once told how many squares of toilet paper each person was expected to use, and how much water to drink from the cooler. Lots of odd cheapskate things regarding supplies, equipment, licenses, etc.

    Pros

    POD is a very great company to work for with good flexibility and a pleasant atmosphere. The pay is reasonable and so are the benefits. Management is always available to listen to your concerns.

    Cons

    The work is heavily contract based so may be volatile depending on contract renewals but that is often the nature of the contract industry.

    You get to work with very talented and experienced folks within the POD team. Pay and benefits are decent; the company is employee-owned.

    Cons

    Nothing to speak of. I found they treated contractors well.
