      Good perks but pay and management could be better for certain roles.

      Pros

      Nice discount. Easy training. Good ethos and company values. Nice amount of holiday allowance. Stores all actively connect to each other in regions and work as a big network so are very helpful. Free products. Good maternity pay. Good break time allowance. Opportunity for bonuses.

      Cons

      Customers can be difficult. Big responsibilities for team leaders which are effectively management but not paid nearly as much but still are expected to undertake the same management tasks. Hours can be long. Often small teams so store managers can be quite strict and have free reign which sometimes has not been a good thing. CC's get paid more than TL's on bank holidays when TL have to do more work.

      Pros

      Best manager ever in the Birkenhead branch, a respectful leader we look up to and the majority of the team was such a pleasure to work with. Respect each team member, easy to get along, very patient and acknowledge the team for their effort and achievement, I definitely learned a lot during my 20 months in here boosted my confident During my time here some staff here whether cc or scc, if they wish to progress in retail they had promotions to team leaders, assistant manager, and manager in another store. I can definitely see the company is very supportive of helping you progress higher. Often receive free products when a new product launches, its to encourage staff to try so they know how to explain to the customer. 50% staff discount, sometimes even discount on sale product

      Cons

      there was only one staff which was also a CC but likes to boss people around
