    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Friends and Family discounts
    Free Uniform
    Flexibility

    Cons

    Regional Leaders Change like the Weather
    Territory leaders are stuck up and really don’t care they look down on you which for me is wrong!
    Managers don’t turn up for there shifts and leave early all the time and use bullying tactics to get you to work!
    No progression path in place for a lot of sales advisors it’s really hard to get your foot in the door I would explain O2 as a place with a glass ceiling you can see the positions and apply for them but they are never given to you based on merit or how hard you work it’s who you know!

    Advice to Management

    Really take time to invest heavily in your next generation of staff as I can guarantee you are losing some amazing potential and stop rewarding bad performance and staff members that seriously don’t deserve it keep a closer eye on how managers are managing stores as a lot of them getting away with murder!
