management not good no motivation lack of understanding
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Barking and Dagenham, Greater London – 16 April 2018
good working place but the staff needs to be more educated to understand needs of other staff members.does not care about staff and no rewards if some one working well they down grade that person a lot.need to promote educated people.
Where to begin? Corrupt management Corrupt HR Managers lying Promoting the wrong people Hiring criminals (people on lists who can't work in retail) Managers leaving 3hours early Don't work here unless you have someone in your family already working here so they can get you promoted. Don't work here if you have ambition

Shop floor assistant (Former Employee) – Livingston, West Lothian – 15 April 2018
Was there on a course and the staff were great and very keen to help, learned how to stock shelves more efficiently from them and had a great feeling of a work environment. A bit difficult to find the way around the store to begin with but with help from everyone it was made easier. Always great to help a customer find something
Shop assistant (Former Employee) – Pontefract – 12 April 2018
As a valued member of the customer service team member I managed to demonstrate my outstanding people skills showing I am able to interact well with customers, listening and holding up a good professional conversation. By coming up with new sales techniques, which involved me taking the products to the customers and other colleagues around the store.
my job title was more work expierence with the promise of till training and possible job at the end of it although none were given it and all we did through day was stacking shelves. we were told more training would be given but this wasnt true. i personally diddnt enoy this wprk expierence as we diddnt learn anything from it and nobody who worked there guided us through day we was left to our own devices
Colleagues are brilliant, Management are a disgrace
Store Colleague (Former Employee) – Brighouse, West Yorkshire – 8 April 2018
I enjoyed my time at B&M, the people I worked with were brilliant, a good bunch, as for the management, totally useless, two of them talk down to you, bully you, and make you feel small, I'm glad I have left this company.
Sales Assistant and progressed to Floor Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stevenage – 6 April 2018
the job was enjoyable when apart of warehouse staff the challenges were exciting to work towards your targets. are so long tho the amount of stock arriving was to much for the warehouse to handle and most didn't go out to shop floor which made stocking items in the small warehouse a bigger and almost impossible challenge. overall fun to work there but some of the staff aren't well motivated and are lazy lots of rumors made up around the work place which made an stale environment.
College Trainee (Former Employee) – Falkirk – 4 April 2018
I thought when working in B&M it was a very standard shop an getting through the wrok day was fine. The staff were all nice people, maybe slightly boring but nice. The working conditions were also fine.
shop floor assistant (Current Employee) – Pool, Cornwall – 3 April 2018
the team at b&m are great! they try their best and get on with the work but because of poor mangament they can only do so much before something uninspiring and deflating is said by higher members of the team. such a shame, could have been a lovely store
B&M is usually a relatively relaxing work environment, the managers and other staff are friendly and helpful. Although it is minimum wage, fixed hours are given ensuring that you earn a fixed amount each month. Professional and positive workplace, would recommend if you aren't looking for great pay.
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 31 March 2018
I really enjoyed working in this sort of environment, there was many jobs, such as working on the tills and stocking. Never too busy but never too quiet, always something to do and never stood around. I want a job I can enjoy and be active in.
working unsuitable hours with no financial reward to show for it and putting a burden on those I care about as a result. little to no respect from management in regards to professional and personal issues I faced and I had 5 months of supervisor training that was only meant to last a single month. furthermore members of the day team were allowed to not only leave work on time but were allowed to finish regardless of whether or not they completed their job, which we then had to rectify with the high chance of leaving late.
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Beccles, Suffolk – 20 March 2018

RETAIL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Cardiff – 14 March 2018
