    I have been working at Superdrug part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Independent work, as well as team work. The management team is really relaxed and friendly. A really positive environment and there are chances for promotion and commission if working or covering on the fragrance counter.

    Cons

    Not a lot of breaks, for example, I get 15 minutes for working a 7-hour shift. Also can be kept behind if you're cashing up which you don't get paid for.

      I have been working at Superdrug part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Lovely sales assistant colleagues. Some what relaxed uniforms. Okay pay. Good discounts.

      Cons

      Consistency of management varies. Lack of support when starting out with minimal training. Breaks are too short for a job where you are on your feet constantly. Minimal rewarding for delivery shift workers. Some managers ignore personal issues such as social anxiety and can be exceedingly dismissive of such things. Harsh attendance policies.
