Plenty of progression Routes. If you want them
Customer Consultant (Current Employee) –  Clacton-on-Sea, Essex6 September 2019
Excellent place to work, 30 min lunch, you get to meet plenty of customers which can be a excellent experience or a nightmare depending on how you conduct yourself.

i'd say you really get a chance to show your personality in the job. and if you're willing to apply yourseld then progression is usually just an application away.

mangement are supportive in most stores and are willing to help you with personal goals and the higher management are approachable.

even the CEO team are there to listen to feedback at various confrences so your voice is heard if thats what you want.
Pros
progression is achievable

Worst place i ever worked
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Blackpool, Lancashire26 July 2019
I worked in the store in Blackpool. The people I worked with were great however the store manager is without a doubt the worst manager I ever had the displeasure of working with. She is rude, she doesn't care about the staff wellbeing, all she is interested in is targets and getting what she wants no matter the cost to the members of staff. I am genuinely surprised that this woman still has her job.

The deputy manager is fab, he is pleasant and is happy to help the staff where/when he can.

As for the line managers, their people skills also leave much to be desired.

There is a large amount of people that have left the store in recent months and when I've spoken to them they have all given the main reason as the store manager and the way she conducts business. Also the targets are unrealistic especially depending on which department you work in.

You best not be sick and have to take a day off because you will be met with a cold shoulder upon your return.

So unless you enjoy being belittled, put down, made out to be stupid or ignored then I really wouldn't bother applying to work here!!!!!
Pros
Chocolate from the company on your birthday
Cons
Everything else

Hideous environment & toxic management
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Blackpool, Lancashire14 May 2019
Imagine being in an American high school, and you’re the one kid that gets picked on. Well, welcome to Currys PC World. Where the staff are refused breaks and managers pressure you in such an unreasonable way.

The expectations of staff are unrealistic and unreasonable, there’s a fine line between banter and a disciplinary meeting, which always bodes in favour of the management.

Discount and benefits are set to such a low standard, students get a better deal anywhere else. Lies are taught as law and numbers mean everything.

You’re not treated like people, you’re a number and an excel spreadsheet, but first you have to pay for the licensing 🤷🏼‍♂️.
Pros
Maccies across the road
Cons
Management, working hours, lack of sympathy
