Work like dogs
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Huddersfield, West Yorkshire15 October 2019
If you want to be worked like a dog for minimum wage this the job for you, they expect you to work without a break and many times by yourself, if you need to use the toilets you have to make sure there nobody on the forecourt to run. You have to serve, watch for shop lifters and watch for drive offs! And if you have a drive off you have to ring police at same time as serving customers! You have to put the morning delivery away while trying to serve customers and watch the forecourt!! If you want to work nights on your own with no break and no extra pay then BP the job for you. There is no place to advance your career

Not Great
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bicester, Oxfordshire27 July 2019
Management was horrible - felt like I didn't belong. Some staff were lovely, others were very rude. Dealt with a lot of rude customers and there were some safety issues with violent people - not much security.
Pros
Paid bi-weekly
Cons
Everything else

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cradley Heath21 January 2019
An immensely high pace working environment where customer service skills have to be optimum at all times, working on tills dealing with money where sharp numetrical skills are key. Giving a warm welcome and serving customers while managing the shop floor to ensure merchandise is always full.

Not secure working environmentTraing
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Greenhill Road7 December 2018
Training was not sufficient enough and working a late shift I always felt unsafe as I worked on my own in a very venerable situation. I was responsible for counting of monies and stocking up the fridges & most of the stock was out back which meant I could not see if someone came into the shop which made me feel very exposed.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Unsafe working place at night

Bad managers, hire staff who dont care and cant do their job properly, leaving people who do care to do all the work! Lots of stress with very little rewards.
