    I worked at Savers Health and Beauty part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Would not recommend.

    Cons

    - The requirement to sell add ons at the till would often irritate customers with some being verbally abusive. Nobody wants add ons sold to them at the tills.
    - State of the shops make you wish you didn't work there
    - Management aren't very supportive
    - Not very flexible and disregard your needs. As a university student, which they were made aware of and accepted, the flexible shifts were appealing. They made out it wasn't a problem. When I started working for them they disregarded my timetable and routinely put me in at times that they knew I had lessons. Had to quit for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    Don't say something is okay with you and then completely disregard it.
    Stop with the add ons at the tills (I realise this is HQ's fault but they need to be made aware that people mostly can't stand it).
    Refurbish you're shops. Most of them are dingy, not enough space to store things, generally awful working environment.
