    Pros

    Great people and work environment. I worked at the Rayleigh branch in Essex and had a brilliant experience with my team!

    Cons

    Benefits package isn't great and the hours are very long.I also had no air con where I worked which was a danger as the store got to dangerous temperature during heatwave weeks. We complained but nothing was done an dit was dangerous.

    Advice to Management

    check in with stores more often and on the weellbeing of employees.

    I have been working at Savers Health and Beauty part-time

    Pros

    There are many good reason for me to work at Savers in Catford I have always had a nice ad happy welcoming, as soon as I step into the store.

    Cons

    I can not think of any bad things to say about savers all I know is that if there is a situation I know it will be sorted straight away.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management the reason is because in my experience when I walk into the store I can see all the workers doing what they are meant to be doing so that is how I know the management is doing a really good job.

    I have been working at Savers Health and Beauty part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pension scheme, friendly staff and nice customers

    Cons

    Minimum wage, the managers don’t treat their staff nicely, long hours standing without a break, holiday entitlement never gets authorised, short staffed

    Advice to Management

    Have consideration for your staff when finishing work that have long distance to travel to, work faster and have more staff on the shop floor that can help tidy after the shift. When there are 3 people in the tidying doesn’t get done properly or in time.
