    The people and its products. Work life balance and opportunity to make a difference. Excellent leadership of the CEO, Rob Parker

    Nothing really, just the current challenges of COVID-19 and the impact on the business. But confident it will thrive again.

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

    Pros

    Commission is good, you get paid extra for just doing your job as well as your salary. I can't comment on other stores but I like the guys I work with. It's fun meeting traders and chatting to them too

    Cons

    Lots of heavy lifting, definitely pulled my back more times than I can count but they do teach full safety precautions. It is just part of the job; lifting heavy tiles. It can get a little competitive sometimes if some people are very commission driven. Although we get commission we're just above minimum wage which is fine but knowing how much some area managers are on is a bit disheartening. I'm only on part time so I don't have the issue as much however depending on your rota you can end up with multiple 7-6 shifts in a row which limits your social life quite a bit
