Not good
You need to have a knowledge of the industry, if you don’t you are rapidly pushed out to the side and then forced to move on.
No advancement or progression. Management structure is too many managers and not enough workers.

Area manager is a bully and has no management skills.

It’s plumbing supplies
Multi national company with everyday being different. My main job role was to over see the showroom make sure it was clean and tidy and all displays were damage free for customers to see and try out.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with upper management with communications regarding sales and training

terrible company
i would tell everyone to avoid working for this company, full of false promises and lies, Branch manager is a control freak, and has complete disregard for employment law, forced to work days off and told you wont be paid for it, and if you don't like it leave!! not allowed breaks!! no matter what you do, or how hard you work, it is not appreciated, i worked at this company for 4 and half years and not once in that whole time did the branch manager appreciate any work carried out, he would prefer to just disrespect the staff and customers with his awful people skills and his non existent management skills.
Pros
every other weekend off, 5pm finishes
Cons
poor training

Untrusting bad management
Managers sit in office all day ignoring everyday customers , sometimes interacting with only their own friends . All in all a hard place to achieve any real goals only a number to a lot of management.
Pros
Work experience
Cons
Treated like an outsider

Good and rewarding place to work
Enjoy the job. But sometimes I feel extremely underpaid for the work I do and the hours involved. At work 6 out of 7 days every other week.
I like working here enjoy working with my colleagues and would stay but the salary is an issue for me.

An increase in that and I wouldnt even be looking for other work.

Great place to work under pressure
Contact customers, get orders, then jump though way too many hoops to get "Special products " ordered.
I've worked for other companies that have way more direction and foresight than this one
Pros
Free uniform
Cons
Not given the oppertunity to make a difference

Good place to work
Good place to work but there was nowhere to progress.
Upper management do look after you and listen.

I left because of a member of staff in the local branch not because of the company.
