I've worked for the company for over a year now and it has its ups and downs. The teams are great, you get along with them very easily and it is a lot of fun. The work itself requires a lot of flexibility, you need to be up and down on your feet sorting out delivery and stock. The Area manager is never really a great help, they like to make you change the store around in a few days and then will ask you to change it back. They don't really know what they are doing and won't listen to your ideas and/or will find something to complain about with either the store itself or the manager. Some of the managers are very hypercritical towards its staff members as they think they can do what they want but won't allow the staff members to do the same. An easy example of this is: the manager will sometimes be late like 30 minutes to an hour and won't notify anyone and if one of the staff members was 10 minutes late they'd be questioned and could possibly be made into a recorded conversation. I wouldn't suggest applying for this job personally as I have struggled to get things done on my own as my manager decides to dump everything down to the assistant, then complains themselves that not everything gets finished.
friendly staff, keeps you busy
hardly any help from managers or above
