      Pros

      Uniform allowance and easy interview.

      Cons

      Was really excited to start as it was my first job, but after a few days I absolutely hated it. Training was rubbish and very rushed. Training was about 2 hours. I was till trained for about 10 minutes then left on my own and couldn’t see anyone on the shop floor to help. Was clueless most of the time and when I asked a question they didn’t want to help. Ended my contract after 9 days (4 weeks) hardly anytime to settle in but I struggled to as I felt so unwelcome. So glad they did. Was miserable whenever I was there.

      Pros

      Nice working environment, nice management, really good discount, get given a uniform allowance every few months

      Cons

      Level 2 pay doesn’t reflect the role at all — they get given a serious level of responsibility and get basically no benefits for it
