A absolute laughing stock of a business
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – York, North Yorkshire – 5 October 2017
Overall Poundworld has to be the worst company I've worked for. Store level staff are great for the most part, very sociable and can work extremely hard as a team. Outside of store level, the company is a joke. Health and safety in store is beyond rubbish, floorboards lifting off the ground, door hanging off at one point, a light switch which sparks. The shop is just falling a part at seams. Anytime a request for maintenance is put in, its denied by head office even after numerous incidents. Staff are treated like dirt from head office, including store management. The job isnt even stressful, it's just draining to the point where it grates on your mood. They really need to get their act together and take better care of their stores and staff. Also actually start looking at implementing proper health and safety standards.
Socialable, good team
