Always short staffed. Jobs are horrid, expect you to be able to split your self in to a million people and gets everything done in an hour. Management have no idea who to speak to people. No matter what you do it’s never good enough
Pros
Discount
Cons
Everything

Bookers isn't a fair company, most of the time, managers are jubious to work with colleagues as most members are insubordinate towards authority. The Salary is laughable, due to the amount of work we have to do, it isn't surprising that workers come and go.

I was very rarely paid correctly. expected to work after hours for free and treated like a child regularly. Branch assistants are expected to work until breaking point whilst the managers eat takeaways in the office. Staff are not treated equally and the atmosphere is depressing, most staff will go off sick as it’s the only way they are able to escape this prison.
Pros
Home time
Cons
Have to chase to get paid correctly, unpaid hours

A decent part-time seasonal job with overtime on offer and reasonable pay. Generally a good working atmosphere but often understaffed so the work can be very demanding, sometimes with unrealistic targets to meet.
Pros
Weekly pay, good staff and customers, overtime on offer
Cons
Wages commonly incorrect, unrealistic targets, poorly equipped for busy periods

Management think they know what they are doing, yet brings Morale down, Staff turnover is very high. Get forced to be break back for minimum wage. Don't care about staff at all. Happy to kick people out of their jobs and cut their hours. As long as they get paid and get their bonus' for keeping costs down. A lot of management favouritism.
Pros
Colleagues are great
Cons
Poor pay, no morale, run by muppets

Booker is an okay place to work in the short term, but it isn't a long term-position. The days are long, usually starting at 7am and not ending until 5pm. Two short 30min breaks are given which isn't a lot when you're on your feet, up ladders and moving stock around for hours on end. Management are generally good, and willing to help. Customer, being business owners, can be awfully rude and condescending which starts to grate on you after a while. Pay is good, and is above NMW.
Pros
Colleagues, Decent Wage
Cons
Long Hours, Rude Customers, Repetitive Work

Work in general is isnt too hard given the opportunity to build rapport with many regular customers will typically be taken advantage of and stretched to do a million jobs at once management typically are unorganised and do not plan overtime or cover holidays in advance, will instead ask you last minute on the day.
Pros
big discount in the cafe
Cons
bad management
