Company shop LTD is a quality company to work for the people that work there are very nice, they could pay more for the work they expect to be done, and also could introduce bonuses like time and half for overtime over ya contracted hours

Worked all.way through the pandemic only to be made redundant when it was time to bring furlough staff back.
Team leaders and managers complain about stuff not being done but do nothing to help.

Love the business and the work life balance. Easiest retail job I have had. Back to basic retailing. Management in Renfrew store leaving to opening new Edinburgh shop. Set a great culture of training as well as under performing colleagues. Love the place.
Pros
Great work life balance, place to work
Cons
Systems a bit out dated but doesnt really matter

Very reactive place of working, absolutely no planning or foresight. Very weak team management and senior management lead via a culture of fear.

A typical day would be spent chasing shadows from the morning heads of department meeting. The rest of your day would be spent raising concerns about their systems and procedures not being fit for purpose and being roundly ignored.


The business is reluctant to invest in hardware it desperately needs but it will commence very elaborate and expensive systems that won’t bring any immediate benefit that they desperately require. The analogy of this would that the house is on fire but they’re more worried about choosing a new sofa: misguided.


The on call rota is not paid and is very frequent.


The management is very much micro management.
Pros
The canteen is the only good thing about this place
Cons
Everything other than the canteen

No one seems to know what is ment to be going on half the time, the managers where often out smoking or in the office, the supervisors are pointless, they’ll tell you to do something this way then moan and tell you to do it a different way. They don’t care about your health, or if you have a family. Can’t even have a break with out them clockwatching (10 minutes to clock out run to the break room have a drink then run back) my job was totally pointless. Would not recommend working to buying from here

Horrible company to work for. Expect too much from their workers. Manager talks to staff like dirt and gets away with it. Work very heavy at times and sometimes they expect you to do two jobs at once. The money

I worked through an agency into company shop, they don't appreciate your hard work!! They treat you like dirt and the manager thinks it's ok to sack people on a daily basis! One guy had nothing to do so he sacked him
Pros
A good wage
Cons
They crack the whip basically you cant be seen doing nothing or your sacked!

Management could not manage a knees up in a brewery. Lol, induction was like an execution, job very boring and stock store is selling very poor, probably why store isn't performing as expected.

Poor training and bad upper management who do things which you have to change to comply with food safety. No feedback given as to what was expected. Training is non existent.

I worked here for six years and during that time staff roles and hours where changed for no reason or commercial benefit. A high turnover of supervisors and management kept making unnecessary changes causing a unsettled work place environment and a negative atmosphere. I finally called it a day when my manager changed my hours to 10.00pm finishing time without consultation or consideration for child care issues and refusing to discuss or change the rotas.
I would not recommend working here unless drastic changes where made.
Pros
None
Cons
Unfair treatment of staff

Worked there a couple of months , the colleagues are great to work with. Workload is a lot as many colleagues are taken from the shop floor to assist tills which leaves you with the bulk of the work .
Management don’t care about the colleagues , they are all for themselves stuck in an office . Few will help on the shop floor but rarely . Rotas are always mixed up

I went through any agency was assigned hygiene role i thought great i can work my 13 weeks work hard and get a contract. To my utter disbelief i was told on the second week the company shop was advertising my shift pattern on this very website. Now they would not take me on due to me not reaching my 13 week period was forced into applying for the role i was already doing. Feels completely mislead and used just to cover that position until a candidate was found full time for this role. I reccomend staying far away from here has possible they do not care about Anyone who is not on the company shop books absolute Disgrace!
Pros
None
Cons
given sale of long term work which is Rubbish!

A fast pace working environment makes time go quickly, always lots to focus on and keep you busy. I enjoy coming to work every day and particularly love the people who are always happy to help and have a friendly chat. The business has its challenges like any other with lots of exciting opportunities ahead. Company Shop is a great retailer with strong values; stopping great food from going to waste as well as giving its colleague's and member's great savings on shopping.
Pros
The people, an on site gym, store membership card, flexible working hours and a delicious on site cafe with home cooked food.
Cons
Fast pace

A full year into my role and I love my job every day. A healthy environment where people can grow and are rewarded. Ethics are at the heart of the business driving the right behaviours and ultimately the future direction. The work life balance is superb and the support from Management and peers second to none. If you thought food retail had lost all of its ethics, think again and look no further than Company Shop. You won’t regret it.
Pros
Flexible working environment, caring management, driven ethics shaping decisions
Cons
None
