      I worked at The Range part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      The colleagues were amazing and friendly, generous break times.

      Cons

      management expect staff to work all the hours they want them to whether its a part time contract or not. Zero work life balance.

      Advice to Management

      Treat employees with respect and stop making people feel threatened and frightened if they dare to speak to another colleague. Stop barking out orders, ask politely for tasks to be carried out. Treat people like adults not small children.

      I worked at The Range full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Easy to get a job here at head office. You get broad exposure to technology as they don't want to pay somebody who knows what they are doing.

      Cons

      Low pay and dreadful working conditions. Petty, draconian polisies and procedures. Unprofessional, nepotism and a culture of bullying.

      Advice to Management

      Leave.

      Pros

      Opportunity to take on responsibilities and be recognised for your hard work.

      Cons

      The company cares more about making any profit possible, than taking care of its staff members. Really disorganised. Poor pay. Expected to take on more responsibility than what your job role entails.
