Awful place to work, no proper training , ordinary staff thinking they are management
Don't work here!!! If you're up the supervisor's hole you will get anything you want!!! No proper training for any on-site job's , staff thinking they are senior management , they speak to you as if you have no education

Fun, if you like being a pawn.
Constantly changing shift patterns and management who do the bare minimum. Welcome to Apple Green. Want a break? You'd better hope there's someone around to give you one!

Friendly
A typical day at work includes serving customers, cleaning and stocking. The hardest part is getting used to the amount of customers who come in on the weekends.

Awful place to work
Training on site? Show you a couple of things in one night and expect you to know everything straight away second night of training the trainer sleeps while you work, management is so poor and everything is ran poorly you don't know if your working the Monday until the Sunday night, poor security protocol, very little help and no decency3

Good place to work
Good place to work, only minimum wage and have lots of work to do for little money, management is amazing at the store and team is friendly. Need better security tho as we get alot of shop lifters and drive offs. Overall a good company to work for. Would be nice to get mixed shifts tho as we all put down flexible but seem to get the same shifts all the time.

Avoid
Manager promoted from a superviser because the assistant manager refused to apply who would of done a far better job in my opinion. He on the other hand spoke to staff like rubbish sat in office most of the day, let stock run low. Petrol tanks where run way below legislation hence why people would come in and say the diesel or unleaded had ruined their engines, did he care NO. Out of date stock sold. Upsell awful he would buy alot of the up sells so it looked good on his sales sheets. Messing rotas up.
Avoid this place.

Don’t bother
The management never listening didn’t matter how many hours you were contracted to they put you on more all the time when their favourite staff don’t want to do the hours and the management walked out themselves which explains it all so glad I left. They also put females on night shifts on their own with no back up support if things go wrong

Not worth it
I worked for the company for around 3 years. Management was awful with often bullying staff into staying longer or working extra hours. Honestly would not wish upon anyone.

Would rather be jobless
I worked as the manager at Costa, the Apple green store manager was the most nastiest woman I’ve ever met. Area manager basically licked her a*** and let her bully her staff. She went through 6 managers in 2 years, all of them lasting barely two months. This company pay minimum wage, you don’t get breaks, I was expected to work 5am-2pm with stock takes at 8pm at night, and working 7 days a week. I worked 60+ hours a week and was paid my salary for 40 hours

Not fit fir Northern Ireland
Very poor company to work for. Very poor understanding of retail trends in Northern Ireland. Did not take advice from experienced Store Managers in Northern Ireland. Very mixed messages from Senior Management and very poor IT systems. New Store openings are rushed and unfinished, leaving on site staff in the firing line for verbal abuse. Too many foreigners in Senior positions who have no knowledge of local shopping trends.

Shambles
This place is a shambles the management and supervisors don’t know how to do their jobs, there’s empty shelves and items that don’t scan and they seem to come in when they please . If you are in the clique timekeeping doesn’t matter because the supervisor will fiddle your clocking in procedure what they are too stupid to realise is it affects the other staff members because they ( a ) either can’t get home on time or ( b ) they have to work on their owngget home on time or (d

Slave labour
The management have no clue on how to run the place felt like they were treating me as a slave work 96 hours in 6 days with no breaks as I was left to retrain old and new staff. Along with turning the BK in the M2 into a clean working environment refuse to pay for fuel cost for another site I was asked to help out. Got told to work the 7th day after my 6th day week and they weren't taken no for an answer

Awful dont bother
Got paid wrong all the time, didn't get shifts some times until the night before you were going to have to work. Hours were ridiculous, no pattern to your shifts. Some hours worked were illegal. A lot of the time you worked alone as weren't given enough hours to be able to have 2 staff in at 1 time. Over worked during busy times as understaffed. Someone left every couple weeks. They obly care about numbers

Do not work here !
Terrible manager at Applegreen in Lytham - completely unprofessional. You are not allowed breaks during shifts that are 6 hours and over, which is completely illegal. Rota changes are changed at the drop of a hat. Training provided is absolutely diabolical. Manager should be changed in order to alter staff behaviour and morale.

Told yeh yeh youll get so shut up .. Treated like a bag of dog dirt .. Applegreen are run like prisons .. Always talked down to like they are scraping dog dirt of their shoe .. You were warned . Just dont do it .. Pay is disgusting .. Utterly no safe guarding of staff or health and safety of staff at all .. Dont even think of applying if you have kids they dont want you and will work your soul to the point of collapse to get rid of you ...

Your a number
I can’t say I would advise people to work for this company the money is ok their isant any real benefits unless your a manager and if I’m honest my experience has been poor, they are more interested in saving money than repairing sites or looking after staff and my own handling of mental health was a shambles and still is. If it wasn’t for management in site supporting me I don’t know what I would of done. You get very little recognition for hard work and it would seem they reward bad behaviour with management if it’s a money saver. If you just want a job on a roll with ok hours then go for it but don’t expect much more than that

Stay away! Surprised this company is still running
Life is at risk as many staff be left to their own devices in the petrol station, no security for the staff if anything does happen. Potentially putting yourself at risk everytime you work alone. Apparently they are allowed to do so said by the managers above. No training does be provided not even the bare minimum for your own safety. Management don't take your concerns seriously. Feeling afraid and stressed. Theifs are about most times
