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

    Pros

    Quite an active job so if you are looking for something that keeps you on your toes you would probably like this role. Management trust you to get on with your work independently. Friendly colleagues. Meeting new people, friendly customers... Giving good advice to customers, finding the right products. Staff discount on selected items.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay. Didn't always receive respect from management. The rota would sometimes change without management notifying me. Stock replenishing became quite monotonous. Some negative customers tried to manipulate/ abuse staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be more communicative with colleagues and show more appreciation of hard work.
